Summerville, SC Teeth Whitening
Have you noticed that your teeth are looking a little dull and discolored? Do you hide your smile because you know you just don't look your best?
We are here to help you achieve excellent oral health, but we also want you to enjoy the confidence of knowing that your smile is as white and bright as it can be.
Here at Finkbine Family Dental, we know that everyone's needs are unique, so we offer convenient teeth whitening options that can be done in either our office or the privacy of your home. Which we recommend will depend on your expectations and how quickly you would like to see results.
Oral health and hygiene have a lot to do with the overall appearance of your smile. But factors like age and regular consumption of stain-producing foods, drinks, and tobacco all cause teeth to lose their bright, youthful appearance. It’s no wonder that teeth whitening is the single most requested cosmetic dental treatment!
Quick and Easy In-Office Treatment
If you have a special event like a wedding or reunion coming up and want to see fast results, a laser-activated whitening procedure here at our Summerville dental office is an excellent choice. This state-of-the-art treatment uses laser energy to activate the hydrogen peroxide in the gel and accelerate the whitening procedure. The process is fast – an in-office treatment takes about 20 minutes – and produces whitening of about six to twelve shades in one appointment.
Before any whitening treatment, however, it’s important for your teeth to be as clean as possible so the whiteners can evenly cover all surfaces of your teeth. We always recommend a professional dental cleaning before any whitening treatment to eliminates any plaque and tartar buildup, which can minimize the effects of the whitening.
Convenient Take-Home Whitening Kits
You may prefer to whiten your teeth at home instead of coming to our office for treatment. In that case, a convenient take-home whitening kit will do the job for you.
We take impressions of your teeth, which are used to create a custom-made whitening tray. We'll give you everything you need, including the tray, the whitener, and complete instructions on how the kit should be used. Just place the whitening gel in the tray and wear it for about 15 minutes daily – your hygienist will tell you the length of time that will provide your desired results.
When used every day for two weeks, you will see results similar to those of a professional whitening treatment done at our office.
