At Tafolla & Rikli Family Dentistry, our goal is to provide wholehearted care for the total health of our patients. This includes keeping your smile bright and healthy-looking through professional dental whitening treatments. A white smile can have a very positive effect on your self-confidence and even a single treatment can yield visible results. We strive to provide an extensive array of services to our patients can find all their needs met in one location. Therefore, we provide both in-office and at-home whitening options for your convenience.
In-Office Dental Whitening
In-office dental whitening is a popular choice for patients who are looking for a no-hassle, one-time treatment to give their smile a fresh appearance. Because the procedure is closely monitored by our professionals, we are able to use a stronger bleaching gel that is used for at-home treatments. Therefore, this form of whitening produces the fastest results out of any whitening treatment. In-office whitening also tends to cause slightly less sensitive than the alternative, at-home whitening options and requires fewer sessions for full impact.
At-Home Dental Whitening
At-home dental whitening is a good choice for patients who want to bleach their teeth in the comfort of their own home. For this treatment, you will need to make an appointment in our office where we will create whitening trays for you that are customized for your unique smile. You will also receive a few tubes of a low-intensity whitening gel. Then, on your own time, you can fill your trays with a small amount of gel, put them over your teeth for 15-30 minutes and see beautiful results in just a few sessions. Some minor tingling or sensitivity can occur in patients with sensitive gums, but these effects are almost always temporary.
