While over the counter teeth whitening bleaches are available to anyone, we recommend working with Balle & Associates for the most effective results. Unlike the over-the-counter whitening kits, we are able to use high-concentration bleaching gels that are much more effective at helping you obtain the whiter teeth you desire.
In-Office Whitening: Whitening your teeth in-office provides the fastest results as we use the most powerful whitening solutions available. In-office teeth whitening is performed by Dr. Balle or Dr. Nguyen to provide you with safe and reliable bleaching results. The results of professionally administered in-office whitening tend to be better because we are able to use high-concentration bleaching gels.
Before treatment, your teeth will be “prepped” to clear away plaque and debris. We will also perform a dental exam to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. To protect your gums from the bleaching gel, a liquid rubber dam or hardening resin will be applied. Once the gel has been applied and the treatment is finished, you’ll be able to see a noticeable difference immediately.
At-home teeth whitening is a do-it-yourself alternative to professional teeth whitening done in the office. While you can pick up over-the-counter whitening products, they have lower concentrations of hydrogen peroxide. This means they will not be able to provide you with as much of a difference in whitening. You can purchase higher concentration at-home whiteners from our office. With these professional at-home kits, you’ll beagle to achieve similar whitening results to that of in-office treatments.
There are various ways to apply at-home whiteners, but we recommend doing so after professional dental cleaning to help you achieve the best results.
