Say goodbye to dental stains and brighten your smile instantly with professional whitening.
Whether you are looking to get a whiter smile before a special occasion or you just want to celebrate the New Year with a simple cosmetic boost to your appearance, there has never been a more perfect time to consider teeth whitening. Our Hilton Head Island, SC, cosmetic dentists, Dr. Julie Camp-Tome, Dr. Benjamin Thomas Wietecha and Dr. M. Glenn Barker, have an in-office whitening system that will be able to get you the results you want quickly.
How does in-office teeth whitening work?
A lot of people wonder how this system differs from at-home whitening kits. First and foremost, the difference lies in the results. The whitening kit you are using at home does contain the active ingredient needed to break up dental stains caused by coffee, red wine, black tea, tomato sauce and other dark food and drinks, but the percentage is much lower when compared to our in-office teeth whitening system here in Hilton Head Island.
Our whitening gel offers a much higher concentration of the active whitening, which means that not only will it be able to handle your yellowing and dental stains it can actually make your teeth look visibly brighter. In about one hour, your smile could end up being seven shades brighter (or even more!).
What goes into professional teeth whitening?
Before we can whiten your smile, one of our Hilton Head Island dentists will need to examine your teeth and gums to make sure that you are healthy enough for this treatment. If you experience tooth sensitivity this is something you’ll want to let us know about prior to getting whitening treatment.
Once we’ve deemed you an ideal candidate we will thoroughly clean your teeth to remove any plaque or tartar. This will ensure a more even and thorough whitening. From there, we will use a special device that will protect your lips and gums from the whitening gel, which can cause irritation.
Then, the gel is painted over the front of your teeth where it will remain for up to 15 minutes at a time. From there, the gel is removed and then reapplied. One whitening session often utilizes two or three whitening applications in order to guarantee that stains are thoroughly eliminated.
