Teeth Whitening in Lebanon TN

What Are the Details of Teeth Whitening?

Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “bleaching” procedure.

It’s safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much of your teeth show when you talk and smile.

In only a day or two your custom bleach splints will be ready for you to pick up at Smile Solutions of Lebanon. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear splints. With only a few hours of wear per day, our special bleaching agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile. We will take “after” photos at your next appointment to demonstrate the difference that the whitening has done for your smile.

Dental bleaching can be used to correct tooth discoloration caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in dental bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, dental crowns or porcelain veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of teeth whitening treatments, tooth whitening is nearly always worth a solid effort.

Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening

  • Corrects brown, yellow, and spotted tooth staining
  • Works on people of any age
  • Is a near-permanent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and brings a smile alive

An impression is taken by Timothy A. Pfountz, DDS to make a specialized “mouthguard” or “stent” to hold the bleach against the teeth. The material is used each night for about 3-4 hours for a week or two, and at the end of this time, significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, teeth whitening technology allows us to promise improvements in yellowing, aging, or stained teeth. For severely stained teeth, dental crowns or porcelain veneers may be more appropriate.
