Many patients desire a whiter, brighter smile. Strolling through any drugstore or market will reveal a number of gels, bleaches, whitening strips, pens, rinses, paint-on materials, and toothpastes. The American Dental Association and the United States Food and Drug Administration have been reviewing the effects of certain whitening products that can be purchased over the counter. Some products may simply be ineffective, messy, or difficult to achieve even results. Other products, such as those that use abrasives or hydrogen peroxide, may cause sensitivity, gum erosion, or other long-term harm to healthy teeth and tissue.
Our dentist, Dr. Sameet Koppikar and our professional staff at Biltmore Dental Center, serving patients in Phoenix, Glendale, Tempe, Scottsdale, and surrounding communities, believe that our patients deserve happy, healthy, and beautiful smiles. For the best results and a brighter smile, we recommend teeth whitening under the supervision of your dental team. A free and comprehensive consultation will determine the best treatment for each patient’s unique needs and concerns. We offer three options for patients who want to achieve a whiter, younger-looking smile:
One-hour, in-office professional whitening
Using our professional whitening gel, a patient can relax in our comfortable office, while reading, watching TV, or catching up on email or texts. The gel breaks up stubborn and even deep set stains and can achieve results up to four to six shades brighter. The in-office whitening system reduces the risk of tooth sensitivity.
At-home whitening trays
With a less concentrated form of our whitening gel, patients can choose to whiten their teeth in the comfort of home. Patients use the gel with the custom-designed mouth tray to whiten their teeth overnight as they sleep. Typically, results are seen in just three to four nights.
Porcelain dental veneers
For patients who wish to brighten their teeth and correct other imperfections in their smiles, porcelain dental veneers are an affordable and easy option. Thin shells made of porcelain can change the appearance of the color, size, shape, length, and straightness of the teeth. Veneers are designed to patients’ specifications, giving them the smile of their dreams.
