Teeth whitening is really a fun thing to do and it's highly effective. The in-office whitening that we offer- really we offer three levels. One. We offer strips similar to Crest Strips but a little more effective, but very similar. That you can just buy over the counter. I don't do a lot of that. I would say probably the next level we do quite a bit more of. That's just in-office whitening. We'll make you some custom trays. Dispense a whitening gel.
The advantage of professional teeth whitening treatment over what you're going to buy over the counter or at the grocery store is just the potency of the gel itself. We're able to distribute something that's a lot more potent. It's going to work faster and also creates a lot less sensitivity.
I've been in dentistry for 26 years. I've seen a lot of products. Currently we work with a Venus product. That has been very effective. Venus White, bleaches very well and doesn't cause much sensitivity. That's really a problem in a lot of the bleaching products.
The third type of bleaching we offer. Is when we do an in-office teeth whitening along with maybe a take-home. And that's probably the most effective way of doing it. The in-office whitening really just speeds up the process. It's all the same gel but it's a little more concentrated. We're able to- as we do it in the office- put it just on the teeth without getting into the gum tissue. It's very highly concentrated.
Zoom Teeth Whitening is something a lot of people know. We use to offer Zoom, but I've stopped using Zoom as a product because there's too much sensitivity with it. So again we have a Venus product for in-office whitening that works very effectively with very low low low sensitivity.
After nearly three decades as a dentist, Dr. Gleave knows which whitening treatments create the safest, most effective results. The products we use are:
- Venus White treatment in our office, which usually takes only 1 to 1 1/2 hours to apply while you relax; it results in little if any sensitivity, unlike most other professional bleaching products
- Nite White and Opalescence take-home kits, which only require wearing customized, comfortable trays
- Treswhite teeth whitening strips, which are less expensive, can easily be used at home, and come in different flavors
Get Brighter Results With Professional Teeth Whitening
You’ll find plenty of “quick-fix” whitening products in a store or pharmacy. But they have lower concentrations of whitening agents than professional teeth whitening. In addition, some of them can cause harm to your teeth and gums if used improperly.
If you require whitening trays for your treatment, Dr. Rod Gleave will make sure they are completely comfortable so you can work or rest without distraction while your smile becomes brighter. Custom trays also make it easier to apply whitening gel. Often, we recommend having custom trays made after whitening in our office so you can maintain your bright results.
