Whitening your teeth is one of the easiest and fastest ways to improve your appearance and increase your self-confidence. Imagine – just a single whitening procedure can counteract years of exposure to coffee, tea, red-wine, cola and tobacco. That Hollywood smile you thought only existed on movie stars is 100% attainable with our help. Because whitening is not a “one-size-fits-all” situation, we will customize your whitening routine so you’ll get the brightest smile, the quickest, with the least sensitivity.
In-Office Whitening in about an Hour
Having a professional whiten your teeth in-office is going to be the quickest route to a brighter smile. At 1st in Smiles, we use Opalescence whitening products in conjunction with Ultra Violet light to achieve your whitest possible shade.
A mold of your teeth is taken and used to fabricate custom bleaching trays that fit your teeth perfectly. The trays are ready for you to take home 24-48 hours later. Bleaching gel and instructions will be supplied to you with your custom bleaching trays. Whitening occurs when you wear the trays, containing a small amount of bleaching gel, on your teeth for a few hours a day. Consecutive days are often needed to get the desired shade over the entire tooth. The take-home tooth whitening option is very safe and effective.
A word about do-it-yourself bleaching kits and toothpastes:
Many professional dental organizations warn against using bleaching kits from drug stores. The one-size-fits-all bleaching trays usually leave the sensitive gum tissue exposed to the bleaching gel, resulting in irritation. The gel may damage the tooth's enamel and pulp chamber. Whitening toothpastes, which use abrasive substances to "polish" away stains, can also damage your tooth enamel. Dentist-prescribed kits are your best option, so your progress can be monitored for adverse reactions.
