Dr. Sameet Koppikar at Biltmore Dental Center in Phoenix, AZ provides a wide range of cosmetic services right in his state-of-the-art dental office. When patients are unhappy with the appearance of their smiles due to staining and discoloration, they may consider whitening with over-the-counter products. However, tooth whitening products available at the local drugstore are often unable to address deep, set-in stains. They often provide minimal results, if any. Instead, patients are encouraged to visit a dental practice for professional tooth whitening treatments.
Teeth Whitening Options
At Biltmore Dental Center, patients can enjoy one of two whitening options available. We offer take-home whitening trays and bleaching gel as well as in-office power bleaching with results in just an hour. Both of these treatments are highly effective and affordable for our patients to consider in rejuvenating their appearance.
The in-office power bleaching is done right in the dental chair. Patients have an initial cleaning done to remove plaque and tartar. Then, bleaching gel is applied to the teeth and activated with a specialized light. The gel lifts stains from deep within the tooth enamel and can brighten the smile up to eight shades whiter. Patients relax in the dental chair while the bleaching works it’s magic and greatly enhances the appearance of the smile.
Patients who are seeking a more affordable alternative may want to ask about our whitening tray system. This system involves impressions that are used to fabricate trays to use in conjunction with bleaching gel. Patients wear the trays with the gel once a day until their smile is as white as they desire.
Patients with teeth that do not respond well to professional tooth whitening services may want to consider porcelain veneers. Veneers are facings that are bonded onto the front of the teeth and can cover imperfections.
