Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment in America. Many men and women have teeth that have become yellow and discolored due to years of drinking coffee, tea, and wine. In addition, the natural aging process means that teeth turn darker over time even if you’ve never touched a food or drink that could stain the teeth.
Here at Divine Smiles, experienced cosmetic dentist in Woburn, Dr. Ryan Clancy, offers both in-office and take-home whitening solutions for our patients. If you are interested in teeth whitening, call us at (781) 396-8558 today to schedule an appointment.
Get a Brighter Smile
We use the GLO Science Professional Whitening system for in-office teeth whitening or take-home bleaching. Whether you want to whiten your teeth in our office or in the comfort of your home, each whitening system can whiten your teeth up to 10 shades after completing treatment.
In-Office whitening takes less than an hour to complete. We use a specially formulated 30% hydrogen peroxide whitening gel to gently remove surface stains and brighten your teeth. After we apply the whitening solution to your teeth, we insert a universally-sized mouthpiece into the patient’s mouth. The mouthpiece then delivers a safe LED light and warming heat to accelerate the whitening process.
At-Home teeth whitening is similar to our in-office whitening. We provide you with everything you need to achieve a smile that 5x whiter in the convenience of your home. You will first apply the whitening solution from our uniquely designed GLO Vials onto your teeth. From there, you will insert the mouthpiece that delivers light and heat to expedite your whitening treatment. It will automatically turn off after 8 minutes. You can repeat this process up to 4 times a day until you achieve your desired results.
Revolutionize Your Smile
With Teeth Whitening Woburn patients can enjoy a number of benefits from the GLO Science Professional Whitening system we use, advantages that stand out over other retail and professional whitening systems. These benefits include:
At our practice in Woburn Teeth Whitening is a suitable option for those with mild to moderately discolored teeth looking for lightening. However, certain factors might limit candidacy. You may not be an ideal candidate for this treatment if:
Since teeth whitening can result in some tooth sensitivity, if you already have teeth that are very sensitive, you should probably not undergo the procedure. In addition, if you are a heavy smoker, you will not see long-term results. Teeth whitening can certainly lighten your teeth even if you are a smoker, but if you cannot quit smoking or reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke, your teeth will inevitably become stained again.
Gum disease and tooth decay will need to be treated before you can undergo teeth whitening. If your tooth decay is extensive, you may need a full restorative plan that includes dental crowns and fillings. It can be used to match the rest of your natural teeth to the shade of your restorative dentistry work, though.
Maintaining Your Bright Smile
Teeth whitening can last for a long time with proper oral hygiene and maintenance. For best results, we recommend following these tips:
For maintenance with an at-home teeth whitening tray, we recommend getting a custom tray created in our office over buying one over the counter. This is because a tray customized to your teeth will give more effective and even results, and lessens the chances of irritating your gums since it’s designed specifically for your mouth.
Safely Brighten Your Smile
Teeth whitening is perfectly safe when performed by an experienced cosmetic dentist using proven safe and effective professional systems. When performing this procedure, Dr. Clancy will:
It is a myth that teeth whitening will make your teeth brittle and weak. Professional teeth whitening does not harm tooth enamel when performed properly, and it does not alter the structure of the tooth in any way. The majority of our patients are very happy with their tooth whitening outcomes.
