Our innovative and high-tech office at York Dental Group is fully equipped with the latest in dental technology. With these tools, along with our highly skilled team of dentists and dental hygienists, we can provide the best cosmetic dentistry treatments in the York Harbor, ME area.
One of the most coveted and sought-after cosmetic dentistry procedures is teeth whitening. Even with good oral hygiene at home and regular checkups in our office, the enamel that covers our teeth is porous and absorbs stains more quickly than we’d like. It’s inevitable that over time, our teeth’s once bright white shade dulls and fades and even becomes discolored.
A great solution to tooth discoloration is a professional-grade teeth whitening treatment. We can provide this service both in our office in a single visit, or we can send you home with a personalized teeth whitening kit. Both offer brilliant results that will transform your smile and boost your self-esteem.
We’ll help you decide which option is right for you.
With in-office teeth whitening treatment, you’ll experience powerful results that can be enjoyed immediately. Before the whitening agent is applied, we’ll cover your gums to protect them from the bleach. Then, we’ll insert a retractor in your lips. The retractor will hold your mouth wide open so that your lips and cheeks cannot touch your teeth during the procedure.
Once you’re prepped, we’ll apply the hydrogen-peroxide gel. This powerful bleaching agent is only available to licensed professionals, and such incredible results cannot be achieved with over-the-counter teeth whitening kits. The bleaching gel will be left on the surfaces of your teeth for approximately one hour.
Don’t worry. We’ll make sure you’re comfortable while you wait. Bring along some reading materials or your headphones, just sit back, and relax.
After we remove the gel and the protective barrier from your teeth and gums, you’re bound to be impressed with your brand new white smile.
With our personalized take-home teeth whitening kit, you’ll still experience amazing results, but the process takes a bit longer. By taking impressions of your teeth, we’ll craft custom trays for your kit that you will fill with bleach in the privacy and comfort of your own home. These will need to be left on your teeth for an hour at a time. In just a few weeks, you’ll be pleased to have brighter, whiter teeth.
