Is teeth bleaching safe and effective for Owensboro, KY patients?

Categories: Teeth Whitening

Teeth bleaching has become one of the most popular cosmetic treatments offered at Thompson and Frey Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Owensboro, KY. Our practice offers various methods including in-office power bleaching, take-home whitening trays, and professional-grade whitening strips.

Many patients have tried over-the-counter whitening methods. Whether they used strips, trays, or toothpastes, they are typically unhappy with the results. Using stronger, more effective whitening products available through a dental office is often more affordable and allows patients to see drastic results in a shorter period.

Many patients who undergo teeth bleaching procedures will ask their dentist if they are safe. The active ingredients used in whitening products through the practice of Drs. David Thompson and Vicki Frey are safe and are FDA-approved for the use of lightening the teeth several shades.

In-office whitening is done within one hour, and it allows patients to sit back and relax while the bleaching solution works hard at dissolving stains and discoloration deep within the enamel. Take-home whitening trays take longer to show results, but are just as effective as chair side whitening. The trays are fabricated to fit with the dental arch, custom-made for every individual. The whitening gel supplied with the trays is stronger and more aggressive than the over-the-counter solutions and allows individuals to see better results in a shorter period. Whitening strips can also be obtained at our practice to provide an alternative to whitening trays, and are easier to wear during the day.

Adult patients can enjoy whitening treatments to rejuvenate their beautiful smile. Most patients are candidates for whitening solutions, except for those with restorations. Crowns, veneers, and bridges will not respond to the whitening product and may need to be replaced if patients choose to go ahead with bleaching their teeth.
