Individuals with a less-than-white smile may be interested in the teeth whitening options their dentist offers. Over-the-counter teeth whitening treatments don’t offer the whitening capabilities that professional systems provide. Your dentist can apply the teeth whitening treatment and create a dazzling whiter smile within a few hours.
Having a stain-free white smile will restore your confidence and allow you to smile more freely. This added confidence will help you engage more freely with others in your professional and personal life. Many people suffer from confidence issues if they have a stained or yellow smile due to lifestyle habits, genetics, or medication.
Professional teeth whitening services offered by our team at Harmony Smile Dental is a straightforward process. If Dr. Ryan Zhuoran Zhao determines that you’re a good candidate for their teeth whitening system, they’ll schedule an appointment to perform the service.
Once you’re at the appointment, Dr. Zhao will prepare the area and apply the whitening solution that will sit on your teeth for a specific time. The longer the solution stays on your teeth, the more whitening you’ll receive.
Dr. Zhao will apply a numbing agent to protect you from discomfort during the procedure. Once the gel is on the teeth, he uses a special light to activate the whitening process.
He may recommend that you whiten for a shorter time for your first visit to gauge your tolerance for whitening and determine your ideal treatment length. You can opt for more time later for repeat visits. You would want to consider returning for further treatment a few times yearly to maintain your white smile.
Remember that your dentist will give you aftercare instructions to follow, and you may experience increased sensitivity right after your treatment, but that will fade in a few days.
