What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that lightens the color of your teeth and removes stains and discoloration. It is a non-invasive and straightforward treatment option that can significantly improve the appearance of your smile.

Professional vs. Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening

While over-the-counter whitening products are readily available, professional teeth whitening performed by a dentist offers several advantages:

  • Customized Treatment: Professional teeth whitening treatments are tailored to your specific needs, ensuring optimal results and minimizing the risk of sensitivity or damage to your teeth and gums.
  • Stronger Whitening Agents: Professional whitening products contain higher concentrations of whitening agents, allowing for more effective and longer-lasting results compared to over-the-counter products.
  • Supervised Treatment: With professional teeth whitening, your treatment is supervised by a qualified dentist who can address any concerns and ensure your safety and comfort throughout the process.
  • Faster Results: Professional teeth whitening treatments typically produce faster and more dramatic results compared to over-the-counter products, allowing you to achieve a noticeably whiter smile in a shorter amount of time.

Teeth Whitening Options

At the dental practice of Dr. Chad M. Kamel and Dr. John P. Courtney, we offer two primary teeth whitening options:

  1. In-Office Whitening: Our in-office whitening treatment involves applying a professional-strength whitening gel to your teeth and activating it with a special dental light. This process typically takes about one hour and can lighten your teeth by several shades in a single visit.
  2. Take-Home Whitening Kits: For patients who prefer the convenience of whitening their teeth at home, we offer custom-made whitening trays and professional-grade whitening gel. Simply wear the trays as instructed by your dentist for a specified period each day to achieve gradual and consistent whitening results.
