Our practice provides several methods of whitening for our patients, including:
Below is a sample of what to expect with each of these options:
Our professionals see many patients who want to brighten their smiles quickly for an upcoming event, such as a wedding or a high school reunion. When these individuals want fast and brilliant results, they turn to the team at Asheville Smile Center to learn more about in-office power bleaching services. In-office power bleaching provides a solution for our patients who want immediate changes in just one appointment. Our in-office power bleaching treatment allows individuals to rest while our team of professionals apply whitening gel onto the surfaces of the teeth. The gel pulls stains from deep within the teeth. The whitening agent is light-activated, and provides results in about one hour. This method of whitening begins and ends with a cleaning as well, ensuring patients leave with a brilliant smile!
Another option is our professional-grade take-home whitening kits. They include custom whitening trays made from impressions of the patients’ teeth. This ensures a proper fit. The trays go home with patients along with specialized whitening gel, which is placed into the trays and worn for a specific period of time each day to gradually brighten the smile. Many of our patients love the ability to brighten their smile this way, in the privacy of their own home. It is a more affordable solution for patients who are on a budget, but want a more effective way of whitening than anything available over-the-counter.
Some of our patients want a way to brighten their smile at home that does not require whitening trays or strips. This is when our dentists may suggest our professional-grade whitening brushes. They allow patients to brush on their whitening product each day to slowly brighten the smile. This may also be beneficial for patients who need to whiten a single tooth or a few teeth near the front of the smile. These brushes are far more effective than the whitening products found in the local drugstore aisles.
Each whitening solution has its pros and cons, and patients should discuss each option with their dentist to determine which treatment is most appropriate for their specific needs. Patients who want something fast and simple may choose to have the in-office power bleaching performed, while other patients seeking an economic solution may opt for the whitening kits or whitening brushes. Choosing a whitening product or service is a personal decision, though our team will provide information to help individuals make a knowledgeable choice.
There are several types of whitening used in our office, and each one has a different overall cost. The in-office power bleaching is the most expensive, while the whitening brushes are most economical. All of these treatments are effective, but many patients have a specific preference based on the timeframe in which they want to achieve their results. The faster the results, the more the whitening product or service will cost.
