Have you tried whitening your teeth using over-the-counter products? If so you may have been less than impressed with your results! Even if you did notice a whiter smile it probably wasn’t as great a difference as you had hoped it would be! At Fairhope Cosmetic Dentistry we don’t think you should settle for teeth whitening you aren’t happy with!
Our professional teeth whitening systems can get you results that aren’t available at your nearest pharmacy or grocery store. We have whitening solutions that can have you looking great in just about an hour at our Fairhope dentist office or in just a couple weeks of at-home treatment. It’s your choice and both will create results that have to be seen to be believed!
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Teeth whitening harnesses the unique tooth-scrubbing abilities of hydrogen peroxide – the same stuff that sits in that little brown bottle at home! Peroxide is pretty unstable and quickly breaks down into water and oxygen. That chemical release is what causes the whitening action. It’s like giving your teeth a scour!
Because hydrogen peroxide is so unstable you often don’t get great results from it. There are a variety of reasons for this and a lot of them happen in the course of trying to simply use it! Our whitening techniques have found ways to defeat the problems of traditional teeth whitening so you’ll know what kinds of results you’re going to get!
In-Office Teeth Whitening
If you want to whiten your teeth in just about an hour at our Fairhope dentist office we can make it happen! We use Venus White Max to create brighter, whiter smiles that are noticeable as soon as treatment is over!
Our whitening process takes two appointments. At the first one we’ll conduct a thorough exam of your teeth to make sure you’re healthy and ready for whitening. If there are any treatments you need before we whiten your teeth we’ll discuss them with you at that time. After we’ve determined you’re a good candidate for teeth whitening at our Fairhope office we’ll take impressions of your mouth. These are used to build custom whitening trays!
Our custom whitening trays make even, predictable whitening possible. One of the big problems with traditional one-size-fits-all teeth whitening trays is that they allow saliva in! Saliva weakens hydrogen peroxide and prevents it from doing its job!
Once we’ve received your custom fit whitening trays from our lab we’ll have you back for the whitening procedure! We’ll fill your trays with gel and place them in your mouth. Then we use a special UV light to accelerate the breakdown of the hydrogen peroxide! It’s like using a scouring pad instead of just a sponge!
With about an hour of whitening time you’ll see a noticeable difference!
If you would prefer to whiten your teeth at home over time we have a great product available that you might be familiar with: Crest White Strips! The big difference between our white strips and the ones you buy at the store is the strength. Ours offer professional quality whitening that’s only available by prescription!
Our professional strength Crest White Strips also feature a special locking technology! This keep saliva and other liquids out while you’re wearing them for about half an hour a day. You’ll be able to drink and talk without a problem with the specialized seal on these professional strength Crest White Strips!
