When a patient desires a whiter, brighter smile, Dr. Armstrong and Dr. Tant may recommend teeth whitening in Jacksonville, North Carolina. This cosmetic procedure is not recommended for all patients. Those with restorations like dental fillings and dental crowns should consider other options. This is because restorations will not be affected by the whitening product. Restorations will stand out against newly whitened teeth. Patients with darkly stained teeth may choose another option as well, as their teeth may not respond much, or at all, to teeth whitening.
Our dentists offer both in-office and at-home whitening. In-house whitening is the fastest way to whiten your teeth. Our dentists will apply the whitening product directly to your teeth and use heat, a special light, or a laser to enhance the bleaching results. Patients can see results after just one 30 to 60 minute treatment. However, to reach the results you desire, multiple treatments will likely be needed. With at-home teeth whitening, our dentists will supply you with a custom-made bleaching tray and a gel bleaching solution. Wear the tray with the bleaching gel as prescribed by our dentists. Usually, treatment time is a few hours a day or during the night for up to four weeks.
