Let our Raleigh, NC, dentist get you closer to a brilliant smile.teeth whitening

Sometimes your smile needs a little boost in order to bring back its vibrancy. Everything from the natural effects of aging to the foods and drinks we consume can take a toll on the whiteness of our smile. Our Raleigh, NC, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Ajamu Giscombe, knows that teeth whitening can be expensive and that some patients don’t want to sit in a dental chair for an hour or more when they can get awesome results from home.

There are two ways in which we can help you whiten your smile from the convenience and comfort of your own home. First, we can easily create custom whitening trays to fit your smile. Why choose custom whitening trays? If the trays are not fitted specifically for your mouth it can sometimes be a challenge to make sure that the gel is actually remaining in contact with your teeth and able to remove stains that are in more difficult spots such as between the teeth or near the gum line.

To make your whitening trays we will need to take impressions of your smile. It can take a week or two for your whitening trays to be ready, but then you can start your professional at-home teeth whitening treatment. Before you begin your treatment our Raleigh, NC, family dentist will provide you with instructions for how long to wear your trays each night. While many people will notice results within a week, if you have severe stains you may need several applications before noticing results. You can also continue to wear your trays every few months to maintain your beautiful results.

If you don’t want to wait to get custom whitening trays (perhaps you want a whiter smile for an important upcoming event) then you can also choose Opalescence Go, a professional at-home treatment that allows you to get a whiter smile without needing to wait for custom trays to be fabricated. The minute we give you your Opalescence Go whitening kit you are ready to start whitening. The trays are thin and comfortable, making it easy for anyone to wear. You can also choose the whitening gel strength that works best for you (10 percent or 15 percent hydrogen peroxide) based on your specific goals. In just a few days you’ll notice results.

Blue Ridge Dental Care is dedicated to helping you achieve that whiter smile conveniently and quickly in Raleigh, NC. If you want to learn more about our at-home teeth whitening system and whether it’s right for you, call our office today.
