Oak Hollow Family Dentistry provides our patients with various services to choose from when restoring or enhancing their smiles. Cosmetic dental procedures give patients ways to change the appearance of their smile into something they love and bring them confidence. One of the simplest ways to enhance your smile is through professional teeth whitening.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Although you put the necessary effort into keeping your teeth clean and healthy, it is still possible that over time, due to what we consume, your teeth can start to discolor and stain. Substances such as wine, alcohol, cigarettes, and coffee stain our teeth’ natural shade or whiteness.
For our Draper, Utah area patients who want to enhance their smile, we offer an in-office and take-home professional whitening treatment to brighten and whiten your smile. In your whitening appointment, we use professional teeth whitening equipment and whitening bleach to ensure the safety of your teeth and other surrounding tissues. We will work closely with you to make your custom treatment plan to achieve your desired results.
Your teeth can become significantly brighter and whiter within just one professional whitening session in our office.
In-office Teeth Whitening
Here at Oak Hollow Family Dentistry, we offer in-office teeth whitening. We have several options you can choose from for your convenience. These are the most popular types of teeth-whitening procedures, and they often require using a custom mouth tray to maintain the immersion of your teeth in the whitening agent. Your dentist creates the mouth tray using an impression of your teeth to create an appliance that fits comfortably.
The mouth tray guarantees that the whitening gel or solution stays on your teeth throughout treatment and keeps it out of your soft tissues where it could burn or irritate them. Your dentist, Dr. Hoffman, will whiten your teeth by brushing on a whitening gel during an appointment. We provide options of 30 minutes, 60 minutes, and 90 minutes.
Wit Whitening Take-Home Kit
Wit Whitening is a process that uses safe, innovative light technology to target and removes unwanted stains without harming the surrounding gums. Wit Whitening is affordable and convenient. The treatment only takes 30 minutes.
Wit Whitening is a professional teeth whitening treatment that offers several benefits over at-home whitening kits. First, Wit Whitening uses a more potent bleaching gel than available over the counter. This gel type means that Wit Whitening can more effectively remove deep stains and discoloration. Wit Whitening also includes a custom-fitted mouth tray that ensures the bleaching gel comes into contact with all surfaces of the teeth, resulting in a more even whitening. Finally, Wit Whitening Dr. Hoffman performs the treatment. He monitors the bleaching process and ensures the gel is on the teeth for a time. If the gel is on the teeth too long, it can damage the tooth enamel. Overall, Wit Whitening is a safe and effective way to achieve brighter, whiter teeth.
Over-The-Counter Whitening Products
We have seen that many patients who desire to have a whiter smile are first turning towards over-the-counter whitening products. Although many of these products deliver minor results, consistent treatment and repurchase are necessary to maintain the desired shade.
Repurchasing and whitening can start to become very costly and time-consuming. We believe that store-bought products can help maintain a bright white smile only after a professional treatment.
Maintaining Your New Smile
Once you have undergone a professional whitening treatment here in our office, we recommend steps and processes to follow to maintain your smile. Professional teeth whitening treatments work and give lasting results but are not considered permanent. The patient needs to do what they can to keep their new smile. Some additional steps we may recommend include:
- Please continue to improve your at-home oral health habits such as brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash. We highly recommend staying up-to-date with your bi-yearly cleanings and examinations with at-home care.
- We suggest limiting your consumption of harmful foods and beverages that could reverse the whitening treatment. If teeth become stained or discolored after treatment, we can help revive your smile with another treatment.
- We recommend using whitening toothpaste to help keep your teeth consistently clean and bright.
