We Offer Impressive Teeth Whitening in Bluffton, SC
Teeth whitening in Bluffton, SC, or in general has become a very popular way for patients to change the brightness of their teeth. It is less expensive than crowns, veneers, and fillings and can be done by the patient at home. Custom thin plastic trays are made by our dental team for each patient. A bleaching gel is placed inside the custom tray, which is then placed on your teeth. Typically, the tray needs to stay on the teeth for 1-2 hours each day. Patients usually see a change occur in as little as three days but can take longer depending on the severity of the stain you are trying to brighten. The main side effect is the sensitivity of teeth to cold, which is temporary. Once you stop bleaching, the sensitivity will go away. There are many over-the-counter and online products that will bleach teeth, but our experience has shown that custom trays made for each patient and a good-quality bleaching gel are the most predictable way to get the result we are looking for. It is important to consult with your dentist to see if a bleaching option is right for your particular case. Most patients want the front 6-8 teeth bleached. If crowns, veneers, or fillings are present, bleaching may not be the best option.
