A Smile You Can Feel Confident About
Teeth Whitening Procedures
There are different types of teeth whitening systems that Dr. Monica Patel provides at Smilebar.
Take home options:
Smartphone Activated Whitening Kit: WYT. The Smartphone activated whitening kit is great for patients on-the-go. It uses the same LED light technology used in the dentist office.
- iPhone and Android Compatible
- Clinical strength formula with no sensitivity
- FDA Approved formula
Bleaching Pens: Bleaching Pens come in many strengths and formulas. We carry a few types to ensure we can offer the best suited options for each patient. They are great to maintain whitening results, touch-ups or our Blanc Pens are a great alternative to messy strips at a great price point.
Whitening Flights: Dr. Patel will recommend in-office whitening, or what we like to call Whitening Flights, to patients who want immediate, long-lasting results with minimal sensitivity while maximizing results. We use a custom-combination of various whitening systems in rounds of 12-15 minute treatment intervals, evaluating tooth shade between each one. A whitening gel with a stronger concentration of peroxide is applied to your teeth. The gel will break apart the bonds between stained molecules. We continue the whitening process up to 6 rounds or until you are satisfied with the color outcome. This all takes place while you sit back, relax and watch Netflix in our private suite.
KoR Whitening: For patients with the most stubborn of stains, tetracycline included, we offer KoR Whitening on a case-by-case basis. KoR is a great alternative when traditional whitening solutions have failed. It combines in-office and at-home methods to achieve the most dramatic results. Patients can expect up to 8-10 shades whiter.
The Need for Teeth Whitening
Did you know that enamel erosion is irreversible? With every mistake you make with your dental hygiene, you lose a layer of your enamel, and the yellow core called dentin starts to appear brighter and brighter.
You can prevent the enamel from wearing off with good dental hygiene practice. As for yellow teeth that have already emerged, teeth whitening is your best solution.
Say Goodbye to Yellow Teeth
There are several ways to get rid of yellow teeth, from at-home whitening strips to in-office treatments, and toothpaste or gels to whitening rinses. Most of these treatments promise whiter, brighter teeth. But not every therapy gives you the results you desire. Toothpaste, gels, and rinses have minimal effects as they are not exposed to your teeth long enough. While at-home whitening strips may give you the result you desire, they can prove to be dangerous if the instructions are not followed correctly. Teeth whitening by a qualified dentist is your best solution because it is safe and gives proven results.
