We are in the thick of the holiday season! This time of year generally involves lots of delicious treats, quality time with loved ones, generous gifting and photos to commemorate these special gatherings. Before the first flash of the camera goes off, take a minute to look in the mirror. Is your smile photo-ready? If not, don’t panic! North Dallas cosmetic dentist Darian Hampton has a quick and easy solution: teeth whitening.
There are several ways to lift stains and discoloration from the teeth and brighten your overall smile, making you more photogenic. But time is precious during the busy holiday season, and an in-office treatment with Dr. Hampton is perfect for achieving beautiful results quickly.
What Happens During Teeth Whitening Treatment?
Dr. Hampton performs in-office teeth whitening in Carrolton at our dental practice. To prep for treatment, Dr. Hampton or one of our dental technicians will place a rubber dam over your gums to protect them from the whitening solution. Then, a high-concentration peroxide gel is applied to your teeth. The gel will remain on your teeth for 15 to 20 minutes, where it penetrates your tooth enamel, breaking up and lifting stains.
The peroxide gel will be removed, and the process will repeat several times. Treatment is neither painful nor invasive. In fact, your appointment is a great time to delve into your favorite book or catch up on some emails on your smartphone. The entire session usually lasts an hour or less. Your teeth will be noticeably whiter and brighter when you leave our office.
If, for some reason, your teeth are resistant to the first treatment, we may advise you to return for an additional treatment session. Or, we may recommend you purchase an at-home whitening kit to refine your results.
You may wish to touch up your results in the New Year as the opportunities arise. We are happy to schedule additional visits at your convenience.
If you have other cosmetic dental concerns, such as crooked, chipped or misshapen teeth, we can review options to address them. Dr. Hampton offers dental bonding, orthodontic treatment and the placement of crowns and veneers — all designed to correct dental issues and improve your smile’s appearance.
