AtPure Gold Professionals in Dentistry, we are excited to offer general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry solutions for patients to consider when it comes to enhancing the health, function, and appearance of the smile. We welcome patients in the community of Redlands, CA to learn about the ways in which the teeth can be whitening, and the methods and services provider in our professional office. Dr. Terry Vines and his team can provide patients with two different modalities for brightening the teeth.
IN-OFFICE POWER BLEACHING
Patients seeking immediate brightening of the smile can ask Dr. Terry Vines about the benefits of using in-office power bleaching services. Known as Zoom!, this treatment can provide same-day results for patients to enhance their smiles. This method is administered with the help of our dental team and is monitored throughout. Within approximately one hour, patients will have a brighter smile thanks to our highly concentrated bleaching ingredients that are not only safe, but effective. This particular method starts with an initial cleaning of the teeth by our dental hygienist. Then, barrier gel is applied to the gum tissue to protect it from the highly concentrated ingredients that are then applied to the surfaces of the natural teeth. Using a special light, the whitening gel is activated and then lifts the stains from deep within the natural tooth enamel.
TAKE-HOME WHITENING KIT
Another option for our patients to think about is the advantage of using our take-home whitening kits. These are kits that include custom-made trays along with our professional-strength whitening gels that are used to achieve a beautiful smile. Patients come into our practice and have impressions taken, which are used to create the long-lasting custom trays. These trays will fit precisely over the teeth within the dental arch. They are worn after patients put some of the professional-strength whitening gel into the tray. Patients can wear these trays for a specific period of time each day to obtain the results of whitening they desire to achieve. Most patients whiten for several weeks before they use the trays and gels for maintaining the results. Patients love the ability to use the whitening trays and gel as needed to keep the teeth looking white and beautiful, while others use it in conjunction with the in-office whitening to achieve even better results!
WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR PROFESSIONAL WHITENING SERVICES?
Dr. Terry Vines and the team at Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry want patients to have the opportunity to brighten their smile when dullness and discoloration occur. Unfortunately, not everyone is a proper candidate for these whitening services. It is important for patients to not have restorations in their smile if they want to brighten their smile with this method. This is because the restorations will not be affected by the whitening gel. This can cause them to stand out as dark and discolored against the newly brightened smile. Patients with restorations serious about whitening their smile and doing so for the long-term can ask about having these restorations replaced to match the brighter smile. However, this will involve more time and more expense. It is a decision that must be made with a dental professional to determine if it is the best option. If patients have specific teeth that are discolored, they may be better suited for solutions such as the placement of a dental crown or a porcelain veneer to disguise the issue.
