What Can a Patient Expect if He or She Comes to Your Office for Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic procedure offered at Sequoyah Dental Arts in Knoxville. Dr. Foncea enjoys improving a patient’s smile with a procedure as simple as teeth whitening, which can whiten teeth up to eight shades lighter in as little as one appointment.
Dr. Foncea offers two types of teeth whitening procedures for his patients, each with their own expectations and experience. Both in-office teeth whitening and at-home teeth whitening are available options to patients who have not seen sufficient results from over-the-counter whitening and bleaching products.
For patients who want a fast, easy approach to teeth whitening with instant results, in-office teeth whitening at your local Knoxville dental office will probably be the procedure of choice. In just one hour, you can completely change the look of your smile. In-office dental whitening involves an hour in the dentist’s chair while professional grade bleach is applied to your teeth and a special whitening light is used to enhance the effect. Patients can enjoy a movie or listen to music while the gel works on lightening the color of the teeth’s enamel.
Dr. Foncea of Sequoyah Dental Arts will first have a patient come into the office to have impressions made of their teeth. These impressions are then used to create a custom whitening tray that fits over both the top and bottom arches of teeth. These trays are then taken home with professional grade whitening gel. The gel is placed into the tray and worn over the teeth for a specific period of time each day for several weeks. This is a slower alternative to in-office whitening, but is less expensive and gives the patient more control over the whitening results they want to achieve.
Sequoyah Dental Arts in Knoxville provides both teeth whitening options to allow patients to have a choice of treatments for their convenience. Together with Dr. Foncea, they can determine the best option to see the results they want to have.
