Whether it’s in a social or business setting, a radiant, white smile can make a lasting impression on those around you. At North Scottsdale Dental Studio, our experienced cosmetic dentists—Dr. Todd Mabry and Dr. Anna Vaysman—offer two professional-grade teeth whitening options that can brighten your teeth by several shades with long-lasting, natural-looking results. Designed to diminish various stains and discolorations that can build up on the surface of the teeth over time, our in-office and at-home whitening treatments can greatly enhance the overall appearance of your teeth while helping you achieve a smile you feel confident to show off.
Advantages of Professional Teeth Whitening
Despite strict adherence to conventional oral care recommendations, many individuals still notice some degree of yellowing and/or staining on their teeth over time. These discolorations are generally the product of several different factors, including the consumption of particular foods and drinks (such as berries, coffee, and tea), the use of tobacco, and even the natural process of aging. While certain whitening products that are available over-the-counter may be able provide satisfactory results for some people, professional teeth whitening treatments usually prove to be significantly more effective. Consisting of the highest-quality bleaching formulas available, these advanced whitening methods can be customized to make your teeth several shades lighter, often helping you achieve a brilliant, beautiful smile in much less time than over-the-counter alternatives.
Venus White® Max In-Office Whitening
Venus White® Max is an in-office treatment that employs an innovative whitening gel containing specialized ratios of hydrogen peroxide gel and potassium nitrate, the latter of which helps to minimize any potential sensitivities. During the procedure, one of our doctors will first apply a light-activated gingival barrier to protect the gums. Next, the advanced Venus White® Max gel is spread onto the teeth, at which time the product’s whitening molecules attach to the surface of stains and penetrate into the enamel and dentin of the teeth. Once this occurs, the whitening molecules work to dissolve and lift the stain, ultimately revealing a brighter, whiter smile. For optimal results, approximately three to four treatments may be necessary, and the in-office procedure should typically be followed by the utilization of customized take-home trays.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
For patients who wish to whiten their teeth at home, our dentists can provide individualized take-home trays for use at their own convenience. This treatment involves a series of whitening trays that are to be worn for certain periods of time each day (as instructed by Dr. Mabry or Dr. Vaysman) until the desired outcome is attained. With this advanced technique, initial results often appear relatively quickly, and the desired shade of white can generally be achieved after a few weeks.
Interested in a More Permanent Whitening Solution?
While professional teeth whitening can create exceptional results for qualified patients, the staining properties of various foods and beverages will continue to discolor teeth over time. For this reason, periodical touch-up treatments may be necessary to maintain an ideal shade of white over time. If you are interested in a longer-lasting, more permanent whitening solution, check out our page on porcelain veneers to learn how this cosmetic treatment can conceal even the deepest of stains and yellowing for a beautiful smile that can last decades.
