Discover Our Teeth Whitening Options
We have a number of different types of whitening processes, and one is where you can apply it yourself over a period of time at home. The other one is you do it here in the office. Then the third one, which we just recently received a trademark, patent award, for is called permanent teeth whitening. The dental office can make you a little slip that goes over the teeth that you put the gel into, where you can put the chemistry or this whitening gel directly on your tooth, so you’re gonna get a faster, more obvious result in less time.
The other, where you come into the office, is the same chemistry again, but it’s stronger, and some processes use a light activation system – that’s the one we use. We have that available for the person that’s not really gonna wear this thing to take home. If you wear the thing you take home, you can get as white as that; it just takes longer, and you gotta be disciplined. This third one that I mentioned, the permanent teeth whitening, is a new process that we developed, again, off of the idea of the prepless veneer. We use a porcelain and a ceramic that is so thin and so light, it’s pure white and translucent at the same time, so that when you put this on the tooth, it actually lets your tooth color come through it, so it still looks like your tooth with your same color, but now it’s been whitened. When you put that on there, it’s completely safe on the tooth. You can take them back off, and you still get your same teeth that you had before.
But I’ve never had anyone ask to take those off because it looked too good. But you put those on the teeth, and it makes your own teeth look super white. We call it permanent teeth whitening, because this white coating that’s on there cannot stain, it will not pick up any coffee stain or red wine stain. You put blueberry juice on that, grape drink, whatever you want, and it’s not gonna stain these things up. They’re gonna stay white, and if it does get a little stain on, you just wipe it off.
