Teeth Whitening

Smoking, coffee, tea, red wine, certain foods and even aging can lead to discolored or dull-looking teeth. While good oral hygiene and regular dental cleanings will get rid of surface stains, deeper stains just don’t respond to brushing or over-the-counter whitening methods. Professional teeth whitening service is the safest, most effective way to address deeper stains and get dramatically whiter teeth. At our practice, we offer take-home and in-office teeth whitening service in Fryeburg to give you a brighter, more dazzling smile. Schedule a visit to get started!

What is Teeth Whitening?

Professional teeth whitening uses a higher concentration of bleaching gel than what is available over the counter. In-office whitening, for example, can make teeth up to eight shades whiter in a single hour! Professional treatment doesn’t just work faster and more effectively, it also doesn’t harm sensitive gums or tooth roots. The options for teeth whitening at Fryeburg Dental Center, include:

  • In-Office Teeth Whitening – In-office treatment utilizes the most powerful whitening solution and provides the fastest results. We start off by covering your gums and tooth root surfaces with a protective barrier and use a retractor to keep your lips and cheeks out of the way. We then apply a professional-strength hydrogen peroxide gel. The gel stays on the teeth for about an hour. When we remove it, you’ll notice dramatically whiter teeth right away.
  • Take-Home Teeth Whitening – Take-home professional teeth-whitening treatment is still much more effective than over-the-counter formulas. We’ll take impressions and use them to create two flexible, thin mouth trays that are custom-made just for your smile. You’ll fill the trays with the whitening gel and place them over your teeth, leaving them on for the prescribed amount of time. It can take a few weeks to reach your desired level of whiteness.

What to Expect

Dr. Harper or Dr. Pickerell will perform an exam before you begin professional whitening treatment. This way, they can ensure the discoloration isn’t from a dental issue that needs treatment. After examining you, they’ll chat with you to determine the best teeth-whitening option for your needs. Whether you opt for in-office or take-home whitening, you’ll get amazing results. With dedicated oral hygiene and a minor touch-up every so often, you can keep your smile looking white for years.
