Teeth Whitening in Cary, NC
Professional teeth whitening in Cary, NC, is a safe and effective way to brighten your smile. It’s also the most economical cosmetic dental procedure. Teeth bleaching procedures offer a quick way to enhance your physical appearance and boost your self-confidence.
Dr. Leedy and his team offer in-office whitening and custom at-home whitening trays. This allows us to meet our patients’ varying lifestyle needs and smile goals. Both whitening treatments produce dramatic results but on different timelines. What is the best teeth whitening treatment in Cary? Let’s find out!
In-Office Teeth Whitening
Professionally supervised whitening treatments will work faster and protect sensitive gums and tooth-root surfaces better than over-the-counter teeth whitening products. It is important to have a consultation and examination before you begin. This allows us to determine if you are a candidate for whitening and ensure that your tooth discoloration is not resulting from a dental condition requiring restorative dental treatments.
In-office teeth whitening offers the fastest results with the most powerful whitening solution available. Before beginning the procedure, we will cover your gums and root surfaces with a protective barrier to ensure comfort and safety. Then, we will apply a professional-strength hydrogen peroxide gel to the teeth. This bleaching gel will remain on the teeth for 15 to 60 minutes. When the gel is removed, the results will be dramatic and immediately obvious.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening Trays
Another effective way to whiten your teeth is through take-home whitening. Take-home trays are often preferred by patients who want to whiten on their own time or who have sensitive teeth. With our custom trays, you can whiten in your home, office, car, or even at the gym. This process will take longer to achieve the best possible results, but when it is done, it is entirely up to you.
To prepare, your cosmetic dentist takes a mold of your teeth to create the top and bottom thin clear custom bleaching trays. Unlike over-the-counter whitening strips that slip and move, custom whitening trays fit your mouth comfortably to minimize movement or dripping of the bleaching gel. You will fill your trays with the whitening gel that is provided and place the trays over your teeth. You can wear your trays for 15 minutes or up to an hour per day, depending on the strength of the gel.
