The Benefits of In-office Teeth Whitening

Benefits of in-office teeth whitening

If a whiter, brighter smile is one of your New Year resolutions, an in-office teeth whitening treatment is the most effective way to reach your goal. At the Seattle cosmetic dental practice of Drs. Don Jayne and Dean Kois, our patients can conveniently and comfortably whiten their teeth with the BriteSmile™ whitening system. Here, we outline some of the benefits you can expect from an in-office teeth whitening treatment.

Quick and Painless Treatment

At-home teeth whitening typically involves wearing bleaching strips or trays for several weeks before results become visible. On the other hand, an in-office teeth whitening treatment typically takes one hour or even less to complete. This is perfect for patients who are on the go and don’t want to wait weeks or even months to see whiter teeth.

In-office teeth whitening involves applying a gentle yet effective whitening gel to the teeth that is then activated by a blue light. Treatment is safe; our team will apply a shield over your gums to protect them from the whitening gel.

Professionally Supervised

At-home whitening treatments are safe to use. However, they can occasionally cause mild discomfort or tooth sensitivity. In-office teeth whitening is virtually painless, as our professional team controls the level of concentration of whitening agent used to prevent tooth sensitivity and other issues. During your professionally supervised whitening treatment, you will be free to sit back and relax while our team does all the work to whiten your teeth.

Immediate, More Noticeable Results

A downside to at-home teeth whitening systems is that the bleaching agent used is typically less concentrated. This means that it takes longer to produce results, which may not be as dramatic as results with in-office teeth whitening. The BriteSmile™ whitening system delivers noticeable, stunning results after just one treatment session.

Results with in-office teeth whitening can be long-lasting, so long as you practice good oral health habits. Our team can also provide you with a take-home teeth whitening kit so you can occasionally touch-up your lighter smile.
