What Are My Teeth Whitening Options?

Our dental office in Broomfield offers two main teeth whitening options – professional in office whitening and whitening trays and gels.

  • Professional In-Office Whitening – Offers excellent results to brighten your teeth and enhance your smile. This procedure is performed in the dental chair and usually takes a little over an hour. The peroxide in office is much stronger than over the counter therefore results tend to be immediate, delivering optimum results in a short amount of time. This is great for those who have a big event coming up or would like immediate results.
  • Custom Whitening Trays and Gel – Offers great results in the comfort of your home. Results usually take about two weeks with wearing the tray for about an hour a day. With custom trays you can whiten your teeth periodically as they discolor from stained foods and drinks. This is a great way to maintain the whiteness of your teeth after professional in office whitening.

You may also supplement with over the counter whitening strips, toothpastes, and/or mouth rinses.

What Are the Side Effects of Whitening?

Whitening may not be for everyone. If you tend to have sensitive teeth or areas of recession, whitening may irritate those areas causing heightened sensitivity and discomfort. Sometimes after professional whitening you may feel more sensitive than usual. Symptoms are temporary and ibuprofen, aspirin, or Tylenol may be taken as needed. If you find that you still have sensitivity more than 3 days after or if the pain is progressively getting worse, please contact your dentist. Additionally, if you are using custom whitening trays and gel at home, try skipping a few days. This will not affect the whitening process.
