Teeth whitening treatments are one of the most commonly requested procedures at Kenmore Dental Associates, PLLC. We believe that Kenmore patients should have smiles that they love to show off. While we offer a range of cosmetic dentistry services to makeover any smile, teeth whitening is the most popular because of the quick and noticeable results.
Benefits of Teeth Whitening at Kenmore Dental Associates, PLLC
There are many over-the-counter products that are designed to be used at home without the need for supervision by a dentist. However, these over-the-counter products cannot provide the same level of whitening strength as the professional-grade treatments provided at Kenmore Dental Associates, PLLC. Additionally, the products available in stores take a longer time to garner noticeable whitening.
At our Kenmore office, our teeth bleaching products have concentrations of hydrogen peroxide ranging from 25% to 40%. Teeth bleaching products sold in stores typically have concentrations of 3.5% or less. Before the bleaching product is applied by Dr. Burke or a member of our dental staff, a protective gel is applied to the gums. Whitening procedures in our office often only take one hour and only need to be repeated if the desired level of whitening is not achieved.
Whitening at Home
At our Kenmore office, our teeth bleaching products have concentrations of hydrogen peroxide up to 20%. Teeth bleaching products sold in stores typically have concentrations of 3.5% or less. In most cases, we recommend the use of custom made whitening trays for your mouth with whitening gel that is used in the trays daily for one hour over a period of 1-3 weeks, depending on the patient. After a patient has completed the whitening process they can often save the custom made tray for use in the future. Call us today at 716-874-1826 to smile brighter.
