In-office Teeth Whitening
In-office teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures because it delivers beautiful results in a single office visit. Unlike other in-office whitening treatments, which can take more than an hour to complete, Sinsational Smile® takes just 20 minutes.
We perform your in-office whitening treatment using comfortable silicone trays pre-filled with a bleaching solution. The bleach is activated with an LED light, intensifying your results.
The number of in-office treatments you require depends upon the severity of your stains and the level of whiteness you desire. Many patients are happy with their results after a single treatment, and only come in for maintenance whitening. We also provide the Sinsational Smile® take-home whitening pen to our in-office whitening patients for touch-up treatments between regular visits.
Take-home Teeth Whitening
For patients who would prefer to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own homes, we provide customized bleaching trays and gel that patients can safely apply for a few minutes a day at home. Depending on your whitening needs, Dr. Jeppson can adjust the level of peroxide in your whitening gel. This gel is very safe and easy to use at home.
Maintaining White Teeth
Teeth can become discolored for many reasons, such as eating foods like berries and coffee, and taking certain prescription medications. Some patients are genetically predisposed to darker teeth. There are two types of stains: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic stains occur on the outer surface of your teeth, while intrinsic stains affect the inner surface. They can often occur as a result of a root canal. It is easier to treat extrinsic stains, while intrinsic stains can require special bleaching methods, or solutions such as a porcelain veneer or dental crown.
To maintain white teeth, you should avoid teeth-staining foods, stop using tobacco, and maintain your at-home dental care routine. You should brush and floss at least twice daily. To help reduce the effects of teeth-staining substances between cleanings, rinse your mouth out with water after meals. You should also maintain your regular visits to Dr. Jeppson. Your satisfaction with the appearance of your smile is important to us, and these routine visits can help you maintain a smile that is both healthy and beautiful.
