Cosmetic dentistry can give you the whiter smile you desire in no time at all. Dr. Kalambayi Kabasela offers professional, high-grade solutions for home whitening or in-office dentist whitening that surpass the strips and pastes you see in drug stores, which don’t contain the same amount of Carbamide peroxide needed to whiten teeth. Over-the-counter home whitening products only contain between 10 to 20 percent while dentist whitening solutions contain 15 to 43 percent carbamide peroxide.
Home whitening or dentist whitening from Dr. Kabasela can fix:
• Worn tooth enamel
• Yellow, brown, grayish teeth, including teeth that are stained from medications
• Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development)
Two Options for Home Whitening and Dentist Whitening
When you choose cosmetic dentistry with Dr. Kabasela for tooth whitening, it’s personal. The doctor will listen to your concerns, give you a full examination and talk with you about your goals, how home whitening or dentist whitening procedures work and which one is best for you. Here are your options:
1. Dentist Whitening in-Office
This non-invasive procedure takes about one hour to achieve a bright, white smile. The bleaching agent is applied to your teeth and a laser light is used to hasten the whitening process. Unlike store-bought whiteners, which can be messy and irritate your gums, dentist whitening procedures include precautions to guard your gum tissue with a protective, rubber covering.
2. Dentist Home Whitening
This procedure requires two office visits. During your first visit, impressions of your teeth are made so we can make customized whitening trays for you to take home. You will wear the trays for the recommended amount of time, usually several minutes a day until you achieve your desired result. Cosmetic dentistry whitening trays fit better than store-bought trays, because they are made just for you. No drips or leaks and no streaks.
Keep in mind that both home whitening or dentist whitening are designed to whiten natural tooth enamel. If you have fillings, crowns, veneers or other dental work, Dr. Kabasela will need to match those to your newly whitened teeth later.
