In-office bleaching provides the quickest way to whiten teeth. With in-office bleaching, the whitening product is applied directly to the teeth. These products can be used in combination with heat, a special light, and/or a laser. Results are seen in only one, 30 to 60 minute treatment. But to achieve dramatic results, several appointments are usually needed. However, with in-office bleaching, dramatic results can be seen after the first treatment. The tooth bleaching/whitening process can make your teeth sensitive and can be difficult for those who already have sensitive teeth. The tooth whitening process is best for people with yellow teeth. It is less effective for those with brown teeth and generally ineffective for people with gray or purple teeth. We encourage you to schedule an appointment at Vlass Dental Care to have Dr. Vlass inspect your teeth and go over the options that will give you the best possible results within your budget.
