Bleaching your teeth is one of the quickest and most affordable ways to enhance your smile. Even better, your team at Cook Family Dental offers two convenient options for professional teeth whitening in South Birmingham. You can brighten your smile quickly in our dental office with in-office teeth whitening, or you can bleach your teeth at home whenever it's convenient for you.
Here's what you should know about your teeth whitening options.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
An in-office bleaching appointment typically takes around 90 minutes. We complete a cleaning first to remove plaque and ensure the best results. Next, we'll place a protective barrier around your gum tissue before applying a high strength whitening gel. We use the Zoom! teeth whitening system, which utilizes a special light to cure the whitening gel and achieve a smile that is six to ten shades lighter than when you started.
If you have a wedding, reunion, or vacation coming up, you don't have to hide your smile in photos any longer. In-office teeth whitening offers immediate results that will have you camera-ready for your next big event.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
If you have a little more time on your hands and like the convenience of bleaching your teeth at home, then a take-home teeth whitening kit is an excellent choice. We'll create custom plastic trays for you using impressions we take of your teeth. Custom trays protect your gums and soft tissues from the bleaching gel and also ensure that you achieve the best results possible.
Another benefit of choosing a take-home teeth whitening kit is that you can purchase additional bleaching gel at our South Birmingham dental office whenever you'd like to brighten your smile in the future. Because you always have your custom trays, you can bleach your teeth whenever you want.
