Tooth Whitening Treatment in Kingsland, GA
For most patients, we recommend at-home teeth whitening trays. Our take-home teeth whitening treatment include custom-made teeth whitening trays, bleaching gel, and detailed instructions. Dr. Lassiter will create a set of custom bleaching trays that fit the contours of your teeth. We will provide you with a professional strength whitening gel that will gradually whiten your teeth over several days or weeks. Whitening trays are typically worn for a few hours each day or over night to break up stains and minimize discoloration.
Tooth Whitening FAQs
What can I expect from teeth whitening?
Most patients will see a dramatic improvement in the color of their teeth in about a week. Results typically look 8 shades lighter than before treatment. Teeth whitening can be used for teeth that have discoloration from foods, beverages, tobacco use, and/or age. If you have staining due to antibiotics, ask about alternative treatments such as porcelain veneers or tooth bonding. Teeth with deep black or gray coloring do not respond to traditional teeth whitening.
What’s the difference between over-the-counter whitening products and professional bleaching?
Over-the-counter whitening strips, brush-on gels, and toothpastes take weeks, and sometimes months, to lighten teeth a few shades. In addition, these products often cause elongated sensitivity to your gums and teeth. Our professional bleaching trays are custom designed to fit over your teeth, ensuring even application of the bleaching solution. Our products are safe and will not harm your teeth or gums.
Will bleaching make my teeth sensitive?
While our products are designed to minimize tooth sensitivity, it is normal to experience some mild sensitivity during treatment. Dr. Lassiter may recommend temporarily switching to a toothpaste for sensitive teeth during your treatment. Tooth sensitivity generally doesn’t last more than a few days.
