When you visit our office in Sparks, NV we can brighten your current smile several shades brighter. Whether you want a small improvement to the brightness of your smile or want a complete overhaul of the color of your teeth, we will work with you and give you our professional recommendation based on your specific needs.
Our process won’t take much time out of your day, and you can schedule an appointment with us whenever you are ready. Here’s how our process works:
We start with a high-quality dental image of your smile and make a record of your current shade. This allows you to witness exactly how many shades brighter your teeth can become.
Once you have chosen your desired shade, we will explain to you how long the process will take. In many cases, producing the bright smile that you are looking for will only take one treatment. However, more severe cases could take two or more treatments to reach your desired results.
We will prepare for the whitening process by polishing your teeth to remove any plaque from the enamel. This allows your teeth to whiten much easier than using whitening toothpaste or over-the-counter whitening products. We also apply gauze to your mouth to keep your mouth and teeth dry during the process. This also prevents any peroxide from irritating your gums and lips.
In most cases, the whitening process won’t take longer than an hour. We will apply the whitening solution to the front surface of your teeth and may require the use of a curing light that helps activate the solution.
Once your desired shade is reached, we rinse your mouth and may apply a fluoride application to ease tooth sensitivity.
