Teeth whitening is an extremely popular cosmetic procedure offered by Dr. Port and his staff. In our office, we offer several different forms of teeth whitening. Each available form of teeth whitening will help whiten your teeth effectively, but have different degrees of strength and completion times.
Our first teeth whitening option is available as an in-office whitening treatment. A whitening material is applied directly to the teeth. This bleaching gel is highly concentrated, so we complete it in the office to ensure that this strong whitening gel does not get on the patient's gums, as it can cause irritation and discomfort for the patient if it stays on the gums for too long. This is the highest concentration of teeth whitening that we offer and provide within the office for results in less than one hour.
Another type of teeth whitening solution that we offer is the at-home whitening trays. We create customized teeth whitening trays from impressions of the patient's teeth, and these trays are used at home by the patient a few hours a day. A whitening gel is put into the trays, and the trays are worn in order to allow the gel to whiten the patient's smile.
The last option available for teeth whitening from our office includes whitening brushes in which the patient will essentially "paint" onto their teeth after they brush each day. This gel will then be absorbed into the teeth and provide whitening that way.
Our goal is to give our patients various options for whitening their teeth in order to allow them to get the best results for their individual situation, and at the same time, keep them as comfortable and safe as possible with their whitening. If you are considering whitening your smile, call Dr. Port's office today to schedule an appointment and experience teeth whitening for yourself!
