Freese & Bengtson Family Dentistry, PLLC
Cosmetic Dentistry in Concord NH
Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “bleaching” procedure.
It’s safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to begin bleaching. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much of each shows when you talk and smile.
In only a day or two your custom bleach splints will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear, almost invisible splints. With only a couple of hours of wear per day, our special bleaching agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the brightness you want, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile.
Dental bleaching can be used to correct many tooth discolorations. These discolorations may have been caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful, “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice. But because of the low cost of bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a solid try.
Key Benefits of Tooth Whitening:
- Corrects brown, yellow and mottled tooth staining
- Works on people of all ages.
- Is a great solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and bringing a smile alive.
How is teeth whitening done?
An impression is taken to make a specialized “mouthguard” or “stent” to hold the bleach against the teeth. The material is used each day or night for about 2-3 hours for one to two weeks. Our office will follow you carefully to monitor your success or answer any questions you may encounter. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology offers improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or veneers may be more appropriate.
Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available at drug stores and pharmacies. Many of these products do not perform as they are advertised leaving patients unsatisfied. Office bleaching techniques can achieve greater success. Factors include, varied concentration gels for increased bleaching volume and custom made trays to reduce sensitivity and create more intimate contact with the teeth.
