What Whitening Treatments Do You Offer?
Teeth whitening uses peroxide gel as a whitening agent. During the teeth whitening process, oxygen molecules in the gel penetrate dental enamel, breaking apart the bonds between stains. At Mangrove Bay Dentistry, we offer both in-office and take-home whitening solutions that are effective and safe.
In-office teeth whitening
is professionally supervised and administered by our experienced staff. This whitening method will work faster than take-home whitening trays. During the in-office whitening procedure, we take the time to first protect sensitive gums and tooth-root surfaces before beginning. We then administer the whitening solution and allow it to work on the surface of your teeth, leaving you with a brilliant, white smile in only one visit!
Custom take-home whitening kits
will enable you to do touch-ups in the comfort of your own home. Our clinical strength gels are highly effective and a proven way to whiten your teeth. If you choose this treatment, we will take impressions of your teeth and use them to craft custom whitening trays. Made of smooth plastic, the trays will be very comfortable, and they will fit securely around your teeth. We will show you the proper way to fill the trays with the provided whitening gel and you will be instructed to wear the trays for about 30 minutes a day over a period of a few days. The time it takes to bleach your teeth to the whiteness you prefer will depend on the severity of their discoloration. The instructions you receive may vary, depending on tooth sensitivity and the condition of your tooth enamel.
