In-Office Teeth Whitening

There’s no faster or safer way to whiten and brighten a dull or stained smile than with professional teeth whitening treatment performed in a dental office. Teeth can become dull through the natural aging process, or stained by certain foods and drinks. All it takes is about one hour to significantly brighten your smile and eliminate stains. Additionally, the results of professional tooth whitening can last for up to five years. The experienced dentist at our office in Stamford, CT, can help you fix a dull or stained smile in just one visit.

One of the reasons in-office whitening is so fast and effective is that a professional-strength high-concentration bleaching agent is used to brighten the teeth. It is also the safest way to whiten your smile because the whitening gel is applied by trained professionals who take several precautions to protect sensitive areas, such as the lips and gums. Additionally, many over-the-counter whitening products contain abrasive substances that have the potential to wear away tooth enamel, which puts teeth at greater risk for infection and decay.

During in-office teeth whitening the lips and cheeks are held back out of the way using a small retractor device. This protects the lips from coming into contact with the whitening gel, while also making it easier to evenly apply the gel to the teeth. A protective substance is also applied to the gums. The whitening gel is then applied to the teeth and left on for about an hour. Afterward, the gel is cleaned off and the teeth will be noticeably whiter and brighter.

Benefits of In-Office Teeth Whitening 

In-office teeth whitening offers several benefits and advantages in comparison to other treatments, such as over-the-counter whitening products. Some of the primary  advantages of professional in-office whitening treatments include:
