Teeth whitening is commonly known as dental bleaching. It is the procedure whereby patients can make their smile several shades brighter than normal either by using DIY whitening kits, or by making an appointment with their dentists for professional in-office bleaching. The procedure is generally painless and non-invasive. At Dr M. Andrew Johnson DDS, we trust only the best, top-of-the-line products for our whitening treatments to give our patients the smile they deserve. This particular treatment is one of the most sought-after procedures in cosmetic dentistry worldwide.
The treatment involves the application of a peroxide based gel on the teeth, which is then activated using dental light, or laser. The active ingredients of this gel break down tough stains on the teeth that make them appear discoloured and dull. By dissolving these stains, the treatment reveals a much whiter, brighter smile than before. At the clinic, this cycle may be repeated twice or thrice depending upon the patient’s pre-whitening staining. We take adequate measures to make sure your soft tissues do not get exposed to the gel, and that you do not experience any dental sensitivity during or after the treatment. We will also guide you on how you can make the whitening last for months at a stretch.
