If you’re interested in whitening your teeth, you may be overwhelmed with all of the choices out there. Here’s a guide to what is available to help you find the best whitening treatment for you.
- Over-the-Counter Whitening
- Custom-Made Whitening Trays
- Dental Veneers
There are many over-the-counter options out there, such as white strips, whitening pens, whitening toothpastes, and more. While these may brighten your smile a bit, they are generally not as effective as the at-home teeth whitening treatments you can get from a dental professional. Also, they will often take much longer to get the results that you’re looking for, and even then, the results won’t last as long.
At Arizona Biltmore Dentistry, we offer custom-made whitening trays with professional-strength gel that can be used in the comfort of your own home. At-home whitening trays are great for those who want to dramatically whiten their teeth on a flexible schedule.
About Our Process
To create the trays, we’ll take impressions of your teeth, which are then sent to the lab where they will create your custom whitening trays. Once they’re ready, we’ll have you come in for a quick fitting to make sure everything fits perfectly. At that same appointment, we’ll go over the whitening schedule we recommend you use so you can get a whiter smile in as little time as possible! The whitening gel we provide you with is much stronger than what you can buy over-the-counter, and the trays provide you with a much more accurate fit for better whitening results.
Another whitening option that people often forget about is veneers. Veneers are a good solution for patients who have discoloration too severe for teeth whitening to fix. They are made out of a wafer-thin material, and they are placed onto the front side of your teeth to cover up dullness or stains. They are designed to look and feel natural, and can be made in many different shades of white.
About Our Process
Once you’ve come in for a consultation and we’ve determined that veneers are right for you, we’ll prep your teeth for the veneers by removing a small amount of enamel from the tooth so that the veneers will fit snugly over your teeth. Then, we take impressions of your teeth and send them off to a lab to create your custom veneers. When the veneers are ready, we’ll bond them to your teeth and you’ll have the smile of your dreams!
