Teeth Whitening

We know that brighter teeth is something that we would all like and all of our patients deserve it! That is why we offer our whitening systems at a ……rate so that everyone can have an opportunity to have a brighter smile, even on a tight budget!

Opalescence Teeth Whitening are our systems of choice here at Campus Dental, due to their low incidence of sensitivity both during and post treatment.

We are aware that many products, including the products we use in-office, are available online. We do not recommend use of these products without the recommendation and supervision of your dental professional. Many of these products can cause burning of the gum and soft tissues, in some cases, very serverely.

Take-Home System – Opalescence Go is the take-home system we recommend.  It offers an easy-to-use tray system with no impressions required. You can use it right out of the box.  It uses a 15% Hydrogen Peroxide gel that requires the tray to be worn for 20 min/day, anywhere from 5-10 days.

What are the details of teeth whitening?

It’s safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much you show when you talk and smile.

In only a day or two your custom bleach splints will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear splints. With only a few hours of wear per day, our special bleaching agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile. We’ll want to take “after” photos at your next appointment.

Dental whitening can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in whitening technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of whitening treatments, teeth whitening is nearly always worth a solid try.

How is teeth whitening done?

Custom Take Home Kits:

An impression is taken to make a specialized “mouthguard” or “stent” to hold the bleach against the teeth. The material is used each night for about 40mins for a week or two, and at the end of this time, significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology allows us to promise improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or dental veneers may be more appropriate.

    Considerations for Teeth Whitening

    Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available for purchase at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can cause harm to the gums and teeth, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends.
