What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is the process of removing stains and discoloration from your teeth to make them appear sparkling white again. It involves applying a gel to the surface of your teeth and then allowing it to go to work lightening them.

  • Results can last for up to a year
  • Enhances self-confidence

Teeth Whitening Before & After

It will not be easy to outshine these results! These photographs show the dramatic results of teeth whitening. Your results could be far different as no two patients are the same.

How is Teeth Whitening Performed?

  • Gums are protected with a rubber dam
  • A dental hygienist applies a whitening gel for around 15 minutes
  • The procedure is repeated two to three times
  • Teeth are rinsed and evaluated to see if further treatment is needed

If the desired result is not achieved Dr. Evans may recommend a second appointment or might also give you whitening trays to use at home.

Preparing for Teeth Whitening

It will be much easier to whiten your teeth when they are clean, which is why a dental cleaning is recommended beforehand. 

Make sure you set aside enough time for the procedure when scheduling the appointment. One-hour laser whitening does not include waiting, prep or recovery time. Dr. Evans usually needs an extra 30 minutes for preparation, during which they place a protective barrier on your gums and whitening gel on your teeth.

Teeth Whitening Recovery

Some patients experience sensitivity following tooth whitening. If you are prone to sensitivity, start brushing with a desensitizing toothpaste a couple of weeks prior to the procedure.
