Get ready for a special event, prom, wedding, or a new job with a professional, in-office whitening session.
Teeth can become discolored or stained from a variety of sources: smoking, drinking coffee, tea, and red wine, even some medications. Whitening of the teeth can improve their appearance and your self-confidence.
At Barksdale Dental we utilize the in-office whitening system by GLO Science Professional. This procedure offers a game-changing, dual teeth whitening experience available exclusively from your dentist. Get your teeth white fast with one professional strength, in-office whitening session for superior results with minimal to no sensitivity.
In about an hour, your teeth can be three to five shades lighter. GLO Professional uses patented Guided Light Optics (G.L.O.) innovation combining heat-plus-light in a closed system mouthpiece, activating the professional strength GLO Professional Whitening Gel for fast, efficient, long lasting results.
Along with the in-office treatment, patients also receive an at-home touch up kit with gel and trays.
At-home bleaching trays and kits are also available. The whitening trays are custom made from impressions of your mouth to provide the best results. Custom made trays provide superior fit and comfort. They minimize the bleaching product from contacting the gums which is the main cause of sensitivity. On your first visit, dental impressions will be taken to create your trays. On your second visit, you will receive your custom trays, whitening gels, and instructions on how to use them properly.
If you are experiencing discoloration of one or two teeth due to root canals, trauma or intrinsic staining , talk to your dentist about other options available for treatment.
Make an appointment today to discuss which whitening options would work best for you.
Note: While whitening treatments are safe to use on veneers and crowns, whitening only works on natural teeth not any existing restorative work.
