Our teeth are important, not only to our health, to our self esteem. When our teeth look good, we smile more. Who doesn't want to feel better about themselves?
Costs can make major restorations with our teeth impossible. Whitening is a great alternative to expensive treatments and provides a drastic change to your smile for much less expense than braces or veneers.
We offer two forms of teeth whitening treatments:
Teeth Whitening in Office
Are you looking for immediate results? In Office Teeth Whitening may be ideal for you. With about an hour of your time, In Office Whitening requires less time than a regimen of at home treatments. It starts with the application of a protective gel to the gums and surrounding soft tissue. A second gel activated by a special light is applied to the teeth surfaces. We use an intense light to activate the second gel and whiten your teeth. Walk out of the office with a whiter smile.
Teeth Whitening at Home
Teeth Whitening at home offers a less expensive way to whiten than in office treatments. Using at home trays, you will be set up with a series of treatments you apply at home. First we make a mold of your teeth in the office. Then we make trays based on this mold that you will pick up from the office. We will instruct you on the proper use of the trays and bleaching gel. This gel is a much lower strength than the dentist uses and is why it costs less and takes longer. You will begin to see a difference with regular use within days, and may need to repeat the procedure for one to two weeks for the final results you are looking for.
We here at Dr. Liu's Family Dentistry are happy to discuss these options with you and find what fits best for you.
