Cosmetic Dentistry: Teeth Whitening

A professional in-office teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental procedures to receive. Unlike home-use whitening systems that incorporate low-dose bleaching agents, in-office whitening takes place under carefully monitored conditions to allow for the safe, controlled, pain-free use of a relatively high concentration of bleaching gel. To accomplish the whitening of your teeth, Dr. Richard Steinfeld, DMD, utilizes a tray whitening system.

The tray whitening system is completed in two steps. The first step is to make an impression of your teeth. With this impression, we’ll craft you custom whitening trays that you can use over and over again. In-office bleaching is not a permanent solution. Shortly after treatment is completed, the teeth resume accumulating stains. Dr. Richard Steinfeld, DMD, recommends home maintenance follow-up with a lower-percentage bleach that can be kept on the teeth for longer periods of time.
