Whiter teeth can dramatically improve your appearance without the need for lengthy office visits and costly procedures. Professional teeth whitening is the safest and most effective way to brighten your smile. There are two methods of teeth whitening available at Dr. Ben Yee’s office for dental care in British Columbia; in-office teeth whitening or at-home teeth whitening. A consult with Dr. Yee can help you to decide which method is right for you.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
This method produces the most rapid and dramatic results. In-office teeth whitening is performed in the dentist office. Dr. Yee will administer a bleaching agent directly to your teeth and expedite the process using a special dental laser. Office visits for teeth whitening take 30 to 60 min. The number of visits needed will depend upon the level of brightness you would like to achieve.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
When you choose to whiten your teeth at-home, Dr. Yee will create a custom bleaching tray to fit your mouth and provide you with professional strength gels. The trays are worn for a few hours each day over the span of several weeks to achieve the bright smile that you desire. While teeth whitening products are available at discount stores, there are many reasons to seek teeth whitening with professional dental care in British Columbia:
• Dr. Yee provides you with a custom bleaching tray that fits your mouth unlike the one-size-fits-all mouth guards that come with over-the-counter teeth whitening products. These custom trays allow you to control the placement of the gel for even whitening and maximum gum protection.
• Professional strength teeth whitening agents have 15% to 43% carbamide peroxide, the active ingredient, while over-the-counter products generally contain only 10% to 22% carbamide peroxide. Over-the-counter products are simply less effective.
• Dramatically Whiter Teeth in One Session: You can have a brighter, whiter smile in an hour.
