If you’ve been thinking about getting your teeth whitened but aren’t sure where to go, visit Bell Family Dentistry! Our professional whitening services offer stunning results, are affordable and can be done at your convenience!
Why do our teeth turn yellow? The most common reason is because of what we eat and drink. Colored foods with strong dyes, for example, can leave stains as they sit on the teeth. Coffee, tea, wine, tobacco, and certain medications can also stain the teeth. Even genetics play a role in how our smile yellows with time.
So what can be done? The defense to combat yellow teeth is oral hygiene! A good, daily routine involves brushing and flossing at least twice a day, especially right after eating and drinking. However, even with regular maintenance, it is possible for stains to slowly build up over time. Fortunately, you can say goodbye to yellow teeth with professional teeth whitening! Many of our patients come in about every 6 months to keep their smile bright year-round.
There are a lot of whitening products available but not every product offers the same outcome. We use professional Glo Whitening at our practice because of it's long-lasting and dynamic results. The entire whitening session is about an hour long and completed right here in our office by Dr. Bell. The results are immediate and the process is a simple one!
How does in-office GLO Whitening work?
Glo Whitening begins with a hydrogen peroxide whitening solution spread over the teeth. A dental tray is then placed in the mouth over the whitening solution. This creates a closed environment in the mouth that will allow the whitening solution to work its magic! Once the gel and tray are ready, a professional heat lamp is placed over the mouth and the teeth are illuminated with a safe LED light. The light and heat coming from the lamp work together to vaporize stain molecules off of the teeth. In just one hour, Glo Whitening can simultaneously whitening the top and bottom teeth up to 12 shades whiter!
Are there at home options?
While in-office whitening treatment offers the most dynamic results, we understand that for some it can be more convenient to whiten teeth at home. We don’t want to eliminate that option for you, which is why we offer Glo Take-Home and Glo Vials.
Glo Take-Home whitening is a professional treatment that can only be supplied by a dentist. It offers better and more effective results compared to almost any over-the-counter whitening solution. Done in the convenience of your own home, this take-home kit can be used as a full whitening treatment or as a touch up solution between professional in-office whitening visits.
Glo Vials are another professional treatment that can be used at home or on the go. The whitening gel comes in a pocket-sized tube and can be used at any time to remove stains with little-to-no sensitivity. This option offers the most convenience because it works effectively without the need for whitening strips, whitening trays or an LED light. The gel is simply brushed on the teeth and then left to evaporate as it whitens — no spitting or rinsing needed!
