What to Expect at Your Teeth Whitening Appointment
Are you ready to give your teeth a boost? Teeth whitening is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to amp up your smile.
At King Dental, we offer two convenient whitening options to meet your needs. Learn more about brightening your smile from your Huntsville cosmetic dentist.
At King Dental, we use the ZOOM! in-office whitening system, which is ideal for patients who need immediate results. We'll start by placing a protective barrier around your gums and soft tissues. Then we'll apply ZOOM!'s high-strength whitening gel and activate it with a special light. Finally, we'll finish with a fluoride treatment to reduce sensitivity. The result is teeth that are six to ten shades lighter after one short appointment at our office.
For patients who prefer to whiten at their leisure, based on their own schedule, we offer custom take-home whitening trays. We'll create your trays using impressions we take of your teeth. Dr. King will determine which strength whitening gel will best suit your needs, and we'll show you how to safely apply and use the gel at home.
We recommend that you whiten your teeth for a couple of weeks initially to achieve the results that you desire. After that, you'll always have your trays so you can update your smile anytime you like. You can purchase additional tubes of high strength whitening gel at our office.
The Benefits of Professional Whitening
While it may seem more cost effective to purchase your whitening system at the grocery store, there are some benefits that professional whitening offers that you should consider.
First, the whitening gel that Dr. King has access to is much stronger than what you can purchase at the store. You may not achieve the results you desire with over-the-counter whitening products.
Next, our whitening systems are customized and designed to fit you and protect your gums, cheeks, and lips from the injury that excessive whitening gel can cause. Drug store whitening systems are "one size fits all," and may be ill fitting. It's also safer to whiten under the supervision of your dentist in case you experience issues with sensitivity.
