Teeth Whitening & Iveri Whitening

Teeth Whitening

Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “bleaching” procedure.

What are the details of teeth whitening?

It’s safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much you show when you talk and smile.

In only a day or two your custom bleach splints will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear splints. With only a few hours of wear per day, our special bleaching agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile. We’ll want to take “after” photos at your next appointment.

Dental bleaching can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a solid try.

How is teeth whitening done?

An impression is taken to make a specialized “mouthguard” or “stent” to hold the bleach against the teeth. The material is used each night for about 3-4 hours for a week or two, and at the end of this time, significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology allows us to promise improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or porcelain veneers may be more appropriate.

Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening

  • Corrects brown, yellow and spotted tooth staining

  • Works on people of any age

  • Is a near-permanent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and brings a smile alive

Considerations for Teeth Whitening

Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available for purchase at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can cause harm to the gums and teeth, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends.

Iveri Whitening

With so many whitening products on the market, why should I choose Iveri Whitening?

Iveri solution is designed and backed by dental professionals. Iveri whitening uses a unique combination of ingredients which are safe on the enamel and provide maximum whitening results in the shortest amount of time.

Will Iveri Whitening cause teeth sensitivity?

Iveri solution is designed to virtually eliminate sensitivity. Potassium Nitrate, a key ingredient in Iveri Whitening, can be found in all major sensitivity toothpastes.

How long will the whitening effect last?

Teeth that have undergone the gentle Iveri Whitening procedure will remain lighter than their original state. They may, however, begin to lose their lustre depending on lifestyle. Smoking cigarettes and drinking tea/coffee will contribute to discoloration and stains. In these cases we strongly recommend you visit your dental professional every few months for touch up sessions. Iveri Whitening Personal Care is also recommended for intermittent whitening between visits.

How long do I need to wait before I can eat/drink?

We recommend you avoid any foods/drinks which are likely to cause stains for 24 hours following the procedure.

How often can I use the Iveri Personal Care take home kit?

We suggest initially whitening your teeth in-office with Iveri Whitening Professional Care. 1-4 sessions are recommended based on the condition of your teeth. This is something you can team up with your dental professional to determine. After the initial whitening session touch ups can be performed in office every 2-9 months depending on lifestyle, or at home as needed. Iveri Personal Care contains a milder solution that is safe for touch ups anytime.
