You can get your teeth professionally whitened at affordable rates at our Barry J Cunha, DDS in Lexington, MA. While there are several home-whitening products that you can use, it’s always better to opt for professional treatment in terms of safety. Your dentist may perform a teeth whitening procedure and request you to follow it up with reliable home care instructions.
There are several teeth whitening treatment options to choose from, and your choice will depend on a number of factors:
The time required for teeth whitening can vary depending on the extent of discoloration and the method that you and your dentist choose. Our expert dental team works closely with patients to determine the best option for teeth whitening for each.
Your dentist will first clean off dirt, debris, and plaque from your teeth before starting the teeth whitening process. The dentist will apply a chemical to each tooth and use a special light to activate the chemical.
The chemical contains bleaching agents that get activated and bleach your teeth white in a short time. While laser whitening is a good option, it may not always be the right one for every patient. For example, laser teeth whitening can lead to heightened sensitivity due to the erosion of teeth enamel. Our dental consultants will take special care to protect your lips, gums, and tongue from damage.
In other cases, they may use fluoride treatments or gels to reduce sensitivity. Our knowledgeable staff will evaluate your teeth and offer you a range of teeth whitening options.
We will also update you regarding the time required, costs involved, and any after-care precautions that should be taken. In general, laser teeth whitening tends to be slightly more expensive compared to other whitening options.
We offer a range of affordable and personalized range of preventive, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry options. Contact us or visit our website for more details.
