At Lovett Dental Beaumont, our patients often ask us what teeth whitening options are available to help them improve their smiles. We offer in-office and at-home whitening solutions. Your highly-skilled, experienced Lovett dentist can help you determine which option is the best way to brighten your smile.
Beaumont In-Office Teeth Whitening Services
While many teeth whitening kits are available in stores, you should always consult your dentist first. There are multiple factors you should consider when choosing a product to whiten your teeth. When whitening patients’ teeth in our office, our dentists carefully observe all safety measures. Our dentists achieve superior results by applying a powerful peroxide-based dental bleaching agent. The solution we use at our office contains a concentration of up to 43% peroxide. The strength of our in-office whitening solution may be inappropriate for some of our patients.
Other patients prefer to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their homes. In both instances, we offer an at-home whitening kit. Our DIY whitening kits have much lower peroxide concentrations that range between 3% and 20%. The strength of your at-home kit will depend on your unique dental health needs and aesthetic preferences.
Professional Teeth Whitening Results
You may be wondering exactly what outcome you can expect from our teeth whitening options. In most cases, our dentists can whiten a patient’s smile within one or two office visits. Because we use professional-strength whitening agents, our in-office whitening service is more efficient and more effective than our DIY whitening kits.
Patients who prefer to have their teeth whitened professionally have two choices when it comes to our timeline. Our dentists can whiten your smile over the course of one or two one-hour to two-hour visits. If you’d prefer shorter appointment durations, we can whiten your teeth over the course of several 30- to 60-minute visits. You can expect your smile to become three to eight shades whiter with each visit.
Effective Teeth Whitening Options at Home
Our at-home whitening kits consist of dental bleaching gel and a mouthguard-style tray. The at-home procedure consists of placing the bleaching gel-filled tray over your teeth. The trays remain in place for a specified period of time. You may have to repeat the process over the course of several days or weeks. Dentist-recommended whitening kits are best.
However, over-the-counter whitening strips and whitening toothpaste are also available. Although drugstore products may be convenient, over-the-counter teeth whitening methods are generally less effective than dentist-recommended options. OTC products also do not last as long as options your Lovett dentist can offer.
