Dr. Rifkin and Dr. Raanan understand having brighter, whiter teeth has become one of the most significant aesthetic concerns of many dental patients. Teeth whitening (sometimes called “bleaching”) is a simple and non-invasive dental treatment that can change the color of your natural tooth enamel. For individuals whose teeth are stained, or that have unattractive color, tooth whitening offers a relatively simple way to enhance and beautify your smile.
“My teeth and my smile are now just the way I want, and I can't thank them enough for giving me that confidence.”
Here are some of the reasons you might want to consider teeth whitening:
Professional teeth whitening will usually require two office visits. During the preliminary appointment, impressions are made of the teeth. This is necessary in order for Dr. Rifkin and Dr. Raanan to construct custom fitted, plastic trays.
The second appointment will entail trying on the trays for proper fit. If necessary, adjustments will be made to achieve correct fit. The trays are then used with special whitening solution according to your dentist’s instruction.
The most common uses involve using them either twice per day for 30 minutes, or overnight. In either case, the process will require daily application for about two weeks, depending on the severity of staining and the patient’s desired level of whitening.
You should understand that this method is likely to result in tooth sensitivity during the process of whitening your teeth, but that sensitivity will subside shortly after you have completed the bleaching regimen.
Dr. Rifkin or Dr. Raanan will give you instructions for proper care of your teeth and whitening trays. An important component of tooth maintenance is to schedule regular visits. Our elite team will work with you to help you achieve your Signature Smile.
The effects of teeth whitening are not permanent. It is likely that a touch-up will be needed every few years. Such procedures are needed more often for patients who smoke, and those who drink wine, tea or coffee.
Because teeth whitening is only effective on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, or other dental modifications. Replacement of such restorations will need to be done after bleaching, so they can be properly color matched to the newly bleached teeth.
