There are many factors that take a toll on the natural brilliance of our smiles, including certain foods and even the aging process. Over-the-counter solutions cannot always address certain types of discoloration. Professional teeth whitening is an effective way to diminish or remove stains and achieve a brighter smile. At Fine Dentistry in Chandler, AZ, Dr. Henry Phan offers both in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments to help his patients achieve more beautiful smiles.
The advantage of a professional, dentist-supervised whitening treatment is its dependability. In contrast to over-the-counter options, a bleaching procedure at Fine Dentistry is safer and offers more predictable results. We are dedicated to protecting your oral health while enhancing the brilliance of your smile, so we choose only reputable, trusted manufacturers for both our in-office and at-home treatments.
While results may vary, whitening is a widely used treatment, with rare and mild side effects. The vast majority of patients are satisfied with this convenient and non-invasive procedure. After a teeth whitening treatment at our office, you can experience a dramatically improved smile and enjoy a huge boost in confidence.
Ideal candidates for teeth whitening generally have mild to moderate discoloration. Since it is a very low-risk procedure, it is suitable for a wide range of patients. In some cases, however, a bleaching treatment might not be the right option. Whitening can exacerbate tooth sensitivity or worn enamel. In these cases, other cosmetic procedures such as porcelain veneers or dental bonding may be better treatments for whitening your smile.
Certain appliances or restorations, such as porcelain veneers, crowns, or dental bonding, do not respond to bleaching agents. However, patients often choose to replace their restoration to match the new color of their teeth. Dr. Phan can discuss your options with you during a consultation.
At Fine Dentistry, we offer both in-office and at-home bleaching procedures. An in-office treatment usually takes about 90 minutes or less. During your visit, a member of our team will apply a whitening gel onto your teeth, which breaks apart the bonds between the stained molecules. Most patients experience instant results and are able to walk out of a single appointment with a dramatically brighter smile. You can maintain your results and achieve more noticeable effects by combining your in-office treatment with a take-home kit.
In contrast to over-the-counter options, a bleaching procedure at Fine Dentistry is safer and offers more predictable results.
If you choose an at-home treatment, Dr. Phan will provide you with a set of custom-made whitening trays, designed to fit comfortably over your teeth. To complete this procedure, you will fill your tray with whitening gel and wear the appliance for between 30 minutes and several hours every day. The gel has a lower concentration of active agents than in-office treatments, making it safe to use outside of our office. A typical at-home whitening treatment lasts ten to 14 days, though some patients see results in as little as three.
Professional whitening treatments can create dazzlingly white smiles quickly and effectively. Our team will closely oversee your treatment to ensure you do not suffer from sensitivity or uneven results.
