At Palisades Dental, we offer a variety of teeth whitening options to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Our dentists are highly skilled and experienced in teeth whitening, and they will work with you to create a treatment plan that is right for you.
We offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments. In-office teeth whitening is a more effective option, but it is also more expensive. At-home teeth whitening is less expensive, but it may take longer to see results.
In-office teeth whitening
In-office teeth whitening uses a high concentration of peroxide to whiten your teeth. The peroxide is applied to your teeth and activated with a special light. The treatment typically takes about an hour, and you can see results immediately.
At-home teeth whitening
At-home teeth whitening kits use a lower concentration of peroxide than in-office teeth whitening. The kits come with a whitening gel and trays that you apply to your teeth. You wear the trays for a certain number of hours each day, and you will see results over time.
Which teeth whitening option is right for you?
The best teeth whitening option for you will depend on your individual needs and preferences. If you are looking for the most effective option, then in-office teeth whitening is the best choice. However, if you are on a budget, then at-home teeth whitening is a good option.
How much does teeth whitening cost?
The cost of teeth whitening will vary depending on the type of treatment you choose. In-office teeth whitening typically costs more than at-home teeth whitening.
How long do the results of teeth whitening last?
The results of teeth whitening can last for several years. However, the exact lifespan of the results will depend on your individual oral health habits. If you brush and floss your teeth regularly and avoid smoking, then the results of your teeth whitening will last longer.
Are there any risks associated with teeth whitening?
The risks of teeth whitening are generally very low. However, as with any medical procedure, there is always some risk of complications. The most common complications of teeth whitening include:
* Sensitivity to cold or hot foods or drinks * Gum recession * Tooth decay * Allergic reaction to the materials used
