Is your smile feeling a little dull these days? Because of her experience as an Abingdon, VA cosmetic dentist, Dr. Johnston can tell you that it's a common complaint. After all, no matter how well you take care of your teeth, they can darken and stain over time. Dr. Johnston knows how to show off your teeth at their best through whitening and other cosmetic processes.
Before we begin any whitening treatment, however, we check the health of your teeth and repair any damage.
From there, we take impressions of your teeth, from which we make plastic trays to fit your teeth exactly. You use these trays at home with a special whitening gel that is stronger than any over-the-counter product.
How the "At-Home" Procedure Works
- Place a small amount of the whitening gel on the front surface of the trays and place them over your teeth. If gel gets on your gums, simply wipe it off.
- Depending on your situation, we may recommend that you wear the tray an hour a day or overnight, every day for approximately two weeks (or as directed otherwise). You should see results in just a few weeks.
An at-home whitening system benefits teeth that are stained by coffee, tea, or wine; it also allows you to whiten your teeth at your convenience. What's better than that? And because the trays are custom made, they fit securely over your teeth.
