What is Professional-Grade Teeth Whitening?

Pictures capture a lot of life these days so we know the appearance of your smile is vital. Fortunately, Dr. R. Asher Henegar, D.D.S., P.A. in Colorado Springs, CO is able to help you address stained teeth with professional-grade teeth whitening. Although there are hundreds of grocery store whitening choices, we supply a product that has shown to be superior to most over-the-counter remedies currently available. Our whitening services, highly recommended by our talented dentist Dr. Asher Henegar, can whiten your teeth by several shades, helping you maintain your beautiful results for much longer than alternative products. We utilize professional-strength gels that reach beneath the surface of your teeth to remove deep stains, as opposed to store-bought solutions that just scrape the surface of your teeth and provide a brighter hue of yellow at the very best.

What To Expect from Professional-Grade Teeth Whitening

If you're debating the pros and cons of professional-strength vs. over-the-counter teeth whitening solutions, you should think about what you are really trying to do. If you're looking to effectively whiten your teeth for longer-lasting results, professional-strength whitening could be just what you need. What you should expect for your whitening treatments is dependent on the method chosen by Dr. Henegar. Since our practice provides a few different treatments for effective and professional teeth whitening, the process selected for you will be determined after discussing your cosmetic goals and lifestyle. In most situations, your in-office teeth whitening procedures will be completed in less than one hour through the application of a prescription-strength whitening gel, along with the technology of a lighting system that quickly whitens the teeth several colors. Remember that simply because your teeth are white does not necessarily indicate that they're healthy. That's why regular exams are still needed. You'll also receive care instructions concerning what foods and drinks should and shouldn't be consumed in the immediate future, like berries, red wine, and coffee.

professional Teeth Whitening FAQ

Is professional teeth whitening worth it?

While you may see some results with OTC (over-the-counter) teeth whitening products, they pale in comparison to professional teeth whitening done by professionals like Dr. Henegar. An in-office professional teeth whitening procedure with dental supervision ensures the health of your teeth and gums, uses stronger whitening agents, and gets faster and more noticeable results.

How long does professional teeth whitening last?

The effects of your professional teeth whitening can be expected to last between 1 – 3 years, depending on your habits. Drinking dark liquids such as wine, tea, and coffee stain the teeth and will affect the longevity of your whitening procedure.

Does professional teeth whitening ruin your teeth?

There are no risks to your teeth from a professional teeth whitening procedure. Some patients may experience sensitivity and gum irritation afterward, but it is usually transitory. Dr. Henegar can go over all aspects of the procedure and give you some tips on aftercare during your visit.

Does professional teeth whitening hurt?

The actual procedure of professional teeth whitening causes no pain or discomfort. For some people, the whitening agents can result in teeth sensitivity, which Dr. Henegar can address during your visit.
