Medford, Massachusetts cosmetic dentist Ryan M. Clancy, DMD, MAGD, LVIF understands that no single teeth whitening treatment is ideal for every patient. We are pleased to offer both in-office and take-home whitening options, allowing us to meet the unique needs of every patient while providing the safest and most effective teeth whitening treatments available today.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
Our in-office teeth whitening is done with the In office power whitening teeth whitening system. This solution is most effective when applied following a dental hygiene and cleaning visit as this allows us to ensure minor surface stains are already removed.
Your in-office whitening procedure will begin with a short preparation in which your gums and lips are covered to prevent solution contact with sensitive oral tissue. Once you have been prepared, In office power whitening solution is evenly applied to the teeth being treated.
Take-Home Whitening Kits
As a supplement to your in-office treatment or, in some instances, as a standalone solution, we offer teeth whitening take-home kits. These kits come with customized application trays and a professional-strength solution that can be used as needed to maintain your teeth whitening results. Unlike over-the-counter whitening trays, the trays provide multiple benefits including the fact that they are customized to your teeth and can more effectively reach all surfaces of each tooth.
In addition to maintaining your results with take-home custom trays, you can further lengthen your results by taking simple steps such as:
- Not smoking
- Avoiding sugary snacks and drinks
- Minimizing your intake of coffee, tea, and red wine
- Brushing your teeth after every meal and snack
- Visiting our office twice yearly for professional cleanings
During your initial consultation we will be happy to discuss this in more detail as well as answer any teeth whitening questions you may have.
