Teeth Whitening In Macon, GA
Revitalizing the Appearance of Your Teeth and Brightening Up Your Smile
What is Teeth Whitening?
Over time, teeth can lose their naturally white hue due to staining. Although a strict at home dental regimen can greatly aid your smile's appearance, sometimes your teeth's natural color is still not quite as bright as desired. Whether completed in-office or at-home, whitening cuts through staining to unlock the natural splendor of your teeth.
The Benefits of Teeth Whitening:
1 Brighten your teeth by 5-7 shades.
2 Maximize the beauty of your smile.
3 Present a healthy and clean appearance.
4 Remove unappealing stains.
Determine the best whitening plan.
We offer two options for professional whitening: in-office and at-home trays. There are benefits to both choices so we will help you determine the whitening solution which best suits your lifestyle.
In-office Process: Maximize your comfort.
The whitening process is not painful, but we want your time in office to be a spa-like escape while undergoing your transformation. You will be presented with our full offering of spa services to enjoy while your teeth are being brightened.
Protect and transform.
The whitening process is possible through the use of peroxide. Since the peroxide should only make contact with your teeth, we will place protective coverings for your gums, lips, and cheeks.
The peroxide needs to sit for an hour so this time is a perfect moment to enjoy our amenities. Whether receiving a spa treatment, watching TV, resting under a warming blanket, or all of the above, embrace a moment of bliss while your teeth are brightening. Your teeth may require up to three visits to attain their brightest shade, but they will already be remarkably brighter after one visit.
At-Home Process: Make impressions.
The at-home whitening process is made possible through custom created trays filled with peroxide gel. We will take accurate impressions so your trays will fit snugly on your teeth, keeping the peroxide gel where intended.
Use your trays for 30-60 minutes a day.
By utilizing the trays filled with whitening gel every day for two weeks, your teeth will be brightened with the same intensity as in-office whitening.
Boost your whitening.
When your teeth are starting to show staining again from everyday wear and tear, we can provide more whitening gel for you to continue to use with your trays as needed.
