Tooth whitening is a non-invasive way to change the color of your natural tooth enamel. This treatment is highly popular because it allows patients to transform their smiles without complicated or lengthy procedures.
Most patients know that over-the-counter toothpastes, mouth washes, or whitening strips won’t provide the stunning results they want. Fortunately, there are several safe and effective ways to professionally whiten your smile!
Dr. Erickson provides fast-acting whitening methods that you can complete in-office or at home. To learn more about how you can achieve that sparkling movie star smile, call our office today.
What Does Whitening Involve?
If you opt for in-office whitening, you’ll see a brighter smile after one hour in our office. We will make sure you can sit back and relax before the procedure begins. We will protect your gums while we bleach your teeth with our quality formula.
Dr. Erickson and his team will apply the formula in an amount and concentration customized to meet your needs. After one hour, your smile may be eight shades lighter or more!
For patients who choose at-home tooth whitening, you’ll need to visit us just twice. At your first appointment, we will take impressions of the teeth so that we can fabricate trays that fit your smile. At your next appointment, we will give you your clear plastic trays along with our professional whitening gel.
When you whiten at home, you’ll place the whitening solution in the trays and then wear them for about 30 minutes each session. After a few uses, you’ll see your teeth begin to brighten. After just two weeks, you’ll achieve your ideal shade of white!
We use Venus White at Jordan Landing Dental Care. Venus White is a special formula designed to minimize discomfort and whiten evenly. Some of the benefits of Venus White include:
- The gel contains potassium nitrate to reduce sensitivity and improve the whitening experience
- Take-home trays are custom-fit to brighten your teeth equally
- Venus White is available in three different strength levels, so you and Dr. Erickson can decide what is right for you
- Venus White can be used day or night
