Teeth Whitening

Having a beautiful smile is easier than ever. In fact, many people just like you achieve a brighter, whiter, more beautiful smile with the safe, simple “dental bleaching” procedures offered at Comfort Dental.

What are the details of teeth whitening?

It’s safe, quick and inexpensive. Did you know that you can lighten only your upper teeth, or lighten both your upper and lower teeth – all depending on how much of your teeth show when you talk and smile? It’s true and, in just a day or two, Comfort Dental can provide you with custom made bleach splints and a special, safe bleaching agent, allowing you to professionally whiten your teeth in the comfort of your home – and when most convenient for you!

With only a few hours of wear per day, Comfort Dental’s 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.

Dental bleaching is a great way to correct tooth discolorations caused by staining, the natural aging process, or chemical damage to your teeth. Using the latest in bleaching technology, Comfort Dental offers a safe method for creating a beautiful and bright smile. However, in cases of extreme tooth discoloration, dental crowns or porcelain veneers may be the only choice. Still, because of the low cost of bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a try.

How is teeth whitening done?

Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening

  • Corrects brown, yellow and spotted tooth staining
  • Works on people of any age
  • Is a near-permanent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and bringing your smile alive

An impression is taken to make a specialized “mouthguard” or “stent” to hold the bleaching agent against your teeth. The stent and special bleaching agent is used nightly, for three to four hours, for a week or two. At the end of this time, significant whitening will be evident. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant.

For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology allows us to promise noticeable improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or porcelain veneers may be more appropriate.

Considerations for Teeth Whitening

Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available for purchase at drug stores and pharmacies. There are kiosks with non-dental staff in white coats at shopping malls. You can even whiten your teeth while you tan! Try these approaches first, if you wish.
