Professional Teeth Whitening Provides Fast, Dramatic Results
Matthew A. Turner D.D.S., P.C., offers Zoom!® teeth whitening technology at our office in Blue Springs, for residents of Kansas City, MO, to deliver brilliant, whiter smiles in as little as one office treatment. We also offer DayWhite® and NiteWhite® take-home treatments so you can whiten your teeth from the comfort of your own home. Professional, dentist-supervised teeth whitening treatments are safer and significantly more effective than over-the-counter methods.
“Professional, dentist-supervised teeth whitening treatments are safer and significantly more effective than over-the-counter methods.”
Professional teeth whitening is a low-risk and minimally invasive treatment that is suitable for most adults and some teens, with parent and dentist approval. The best candidates for teeth whitening have mild to moderate extrinsic (surface) stains. Deep-set intrinsic stains and dental restorations do not respond to teeth whitening treatments. These discolorations will require other cosmetic treatments, such as porcelain veneers. Teeth whitening may not be a good option for patients with extreme tooth sensitivity.
Consultation and Exam
Prior to your teeth whitening treatment, you will have a consultation with Dr. Turner to determine your candidacy for treatment. He will examine your teeth and gums to ensure that teeth whitening is a viable option. He will discuss your goals for treatment, and together you will decide whether in-office or take-home treatment is the better option for you. If you opt for take-home treatment, we will take impressions of your teeth to create your custom teeth-whitening trays. You will receive desensitizing toothpaste to use for two weeks prior to your treatment to reduce any sensitivity to the whitening gel. Dr. Turner will give you instructions about how to use your kit for the desired results.
In-office Teeth Whitening with Zoom!®
Prior to your whitening treatment, one of our experienced hygienists will clean your teeth to remove any film or particles of food that might interfere with the whitening gel. We will then place a protective barrier over your lips and gums and apply an even coat of gel to the visible surfaces of the teeth that show when you smile. A special chairside lamp is used to activate the gel and begin the whitening process. The gel will remain on your teeth for 15 minutes before being cleaned off and reapplied. Three applications are usually enough to deliver the desired whitening results. Your teeth can be several shades in about one hour.
Take-home Teeth Whitening
Patients who choose take-home teeth whitening may receive either DayWhite® or NiteWhite® treatment systems. Dr. Turner will ensure that your custom whitening trays fit properly and feel comfortable. You will use a syringe to fill your whitening trays with the gel and then place the trays over your teeth. Your trays should fit snugly and the gel should remain in the trays and never come in contact with your gums. DayWhite® is used daily for 15 minutes to an hour, and NiteWhite® is worn nightly for about two weeks. The exact amount of time your trays will be worn and the length of your treatment will vary depending on your desired results and Dr. Turner's advice.
Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening
In-office teeth whitening is fast and offers immediate, dramatic results. Take-home teeth whitening treatments are convenient and can be done from the comfort of your own home at any time of day. Both options are a non-invasive, safe, and effective cosmetic treatment.
