Why Get Teeth Whitening?
This type of treatment is becoming extremely popular, and for good reason. The treatment is painless, efficient and fast. It only takes one hour-long appointment and you leave with a brighter smile. Additionally it also has a great benefit on your oral hygiene, not the treatment itself, but the preparations our Dr. Carl Medgaus makes. Before Dr. Medgaus performs teeth whitening he thoroughly cleans the teeth to remove any surface stains, as well as plaque and tartar buildup. This professional cleaning reduces your risk of decay and infection, and is something you should be getting from your dentist every six months regardless of the other treatments you seek.
What Are The Different Types of Teeth Whitening?
If you are planning to undergo this procedure, you should familiarize yourself with the two types of whitening treatments offered by our Monroeville and Pittsburgh cosmetic dentists.
First, we have the tray whitening. In this type of procedure, the dentist will take your impression and create a customized whitening tray to fit the unique shape of your teeth. After that, you will be given a whitening gel and you will be required to wear the tray for a few hours every day for a certain period of time. This is done until you have achieved the results that you are aiming for. Usually, this type of method can lead to teeth sensitivity, but the discomfort goes away just a couple of days after treatment is complete.
We also offer in-office whitening which is considered a more efficient option. You come in, the dentist uses a special guard to protect the soft tissues of your mouth from the bleaching agents, then paints in the whitening gel and puts you under a special light that helps activate the gel. After fifteen minutes the dentist will wipe of the gel and reapply a new layer, depending on the results you desire and the severity of extrinsic stains. Dr. Medgaus might recommend anywhere from two to four applications. In just one session, you can achieve the results that you want and leave with a smile eight to ten shades lighter. This is the most common form of professional teeth whitening, and the most satisfactory.
The dentist will be able to evaluate your teeth and give you advice as to which type of whitening method best suit your needs. If you have any questions about the procedure, do not hesitate to ask.
How Much Does Teeth Whitening Cost?
The rate you would have to pay for this type of procedure will vary depending on which method you choose and the severity of your dental stains. Other factors may include the expertise of the dentist, the type of technology used, the quality of products applied and the number of reapplications. If you want a detailed outline of what it might cost in your case, you would need to sit down with Dr. Medgaus, the best cosmetic dentist in Monroeville and Pittsburgh, PA, for an evaluation and quote.
