Whitening in office
Even if you maintain very good dental hygiene, food, environment, medications and aging effects may eventually lead to dental discoloration. Sunshine Smiles Dentistry in Roswell GA, led by dedicated cosmetic dentist Dr. Suvidha Sachdeva, provides professional teeth whitening to successfully mitigate or altogether eliminate discoloration and restore a bright smile.
If you seek teeth whitening, Dr. Sachdeva will examine the health of your teeth and gums and review the type of dental restorations you may have to determine whether teeth whitening is the ideal solution for you. Dr. Sachdeva will explain the in-office as well as at-home teeth whitening options and help you make the best choice according to your needs.
In-Office Teeth Whitening at Sunshine Smiles
If you are looking for more dramatic and sustainable results, Dr. Sachdeva may recommend in-office teeth whitening for you. This will allow her to use a stronger concentration of the whitening gel to break down tough stains and create a desirable white smile.
Depending on your needs, she may use a high-powered light to activate the gel and produce more effective outcomes. If you are committed to performing at-home teeth whitening as instructed, Dr. Sachdeva may offer you a combination of in-office and at-home teeth whitening for deeper and longer lasting results.
To perform in-office teeth whitening, the dental hygienist at Sunshine Smiles will first clean your teeth and gums. Thereafter, Dr. Sachdeva will place a protective barrier over your gums. She will then precisely apply the whitening gel over your tooth surface. The gel will be spread onto all the exposed surfaces of your front teeth. She will evenly cover your teeth enamel to create completely natural looking results.
More dramatic results can be achieved when the treatment is performed in intervals. Dr. Sachdeva may repeat the gel application process two to three times with a few minutes of gap between each application. Within an hour of your treatment, you may be able to achieve a smile few shades lighter. Depending on your cosmetic needs or the condition of your teeth, you may require one to two in-office teeth whitening treatments.
You can maintain results and extend the benefits of teeth whitening by repeating the treatment at specified intervals under the supervision of Dr. Sachdeva.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
Depending on your needs, may choose the option of at-home teeth whitening. Although you will perform this procedure at home, but it will be supervised by Dr. Sachdeva to ensure it is done safely and effectively. In this procedure, Dr. Sachdeva will first create impressions of your teeth to have customized whitening trays fabricated that fit securely and comfortably in your mouth.
Once the trays are made, Dr. Sachdeva will check their fit in your mouth, and guide you how to use the trays. You will be required to place the precise amount of whitening gel into the tray with a syringe. Thereafter, you can fit the tray over your teeth. The tray will snugly fit around your teeth, and the whitening gel will start working on your tooth enamel while the tray is in place.
You will typically have to wear your tray daily for a few minutes as prescribed by Dr. Sachdeva. Alternatively, you may choose an overnight whitening solution. The complete treatment regimen may be accomplished in about two weeks. To achieve more sustainable and comprehensive results, you may also consider the option of combining teeth whitening treatment with other procedures such as veneers, bonding, dental crowns, or orthodontic treatment.
