Why Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic we offer here at College Hill Dental for a good reason. Think of the last time you noticed someones smile because of their beautiful white teeth – it’s a powerfully positive look for anyone. When professional teeth whitening is done right, everyone will notice your gorgeous smile for all the right reasons, not because they are unnaturally bright.
Over The Counter Solutions Don’t Cut It!
Everyone has noticed it because it’s so pervasive in the oral hygiene market these days – what are we talking about? Over the counter teeth whitening solutions, of course! OTC teeth whitening solutions are being used as a sales gimmick in everything from mouthwashes to gels/strips, even toothpaste. One of the questions that we get asked the most is, “Do OTC teeth whitening solutions work?” We answer that some OTC solutions can have a minor effect on the whiteness of your teeth, but for the most part, they don’t work very well at all.
The best OTC solutions are usually teeth whitening gels and strips that are applied for twenty minutes or so a day. These have a better track record for whitening your teeth that the mouthwashes and toothpaste that contain whitening solutions. The toothpaste and mouthwash solutions apply such small concentrations of the whitening solution for such a small amount of time that they barely ever produce noticeable results.
Professional Teeth Whitening at College Hill Dental
We offer two different professional teeth whitening options, in practice, and take-home. For the in practice whitening, the procedure is quick, simple, and produces stellar results. We sit you down and prepare your mouth by placing some protective barriers over soft-tissues. We will apply a whitening solution containing hydrogen peroxide to your teeth and will set up a special light that we shine on your teeth for roughly 15 minutes. This process is repeated three times depending on how much you would like to whiten your teeth.
If you opt for the take-home professional whitening solution, we will craft some custom trays for you to take home with you and give you some whitening solution that you will wear for a designated amount of time every day. This way you get to determine how white your teeth get. With professional teeth whitening, we can give you exactly the amount of whitening you desire!
