Illuminate Your Smile with One of Our Teeth Whitening Options
Over time, the color of our teeth can be affected by stain-producing foods and drinks. For patients interested in a whiter smile, Dr. Brian Tavoian, offers both in-office and at-home teeth whitening. Using the advanced Opalescence® whitening system, you will experience dramatic results that will make you want to enter every room with a smile. We also offer qualifying patients at our Cedar City, UT, practice free Whitening for Life to help maintain their results for years to come.
Benefits of Supervised Whitening
With Opalescence®, teeth whitening is a safe and comfortable way to achieve a bright, white smile. There are many over-the-counter options available for teeth whitening. However, Brian uses bleaching agents that contain higher concentrations, allowing faster, more effective results. The effects of dentist-supervised whitening treatments are more predictable than over-the-counter products and less likely to cause dental sensitivity.
Am I a Candidate for Whitening?
Ideal candidates for teeth whitening wish to address mild to moderate discoloration. For more severe discoloration, Brian may recommend porcelain veneers or dental bonding. There are a few conditions that disqualify patients from receiving teeth whitening treatment. Women who are pregnant should not undergo teeth whitening. Additionally, patients with gum disease, worn enamel, cavities, or exposed roots should seek treatment for these conditions before undergoing cosmetic dentistry services. Our team can help you restore your oral health first, and then work to achieve your cosmetic goals.
Our practice offers two types of at-home whitening treatments. Depending on your preferences, we can provide a set of pre-molded whitening trays, or design a custom set. If you choose custom whitening trays, we will take impressions of your smile during your consultation. Once you have your pre-molded or custom trays and are ready to begin at-home whitening, you will fill the trays with the whitening gel and place them over your teeth.
With a variety of options, we can customize your at-home treatment to meet your needs.
Opalescence® offers several concentration levels. The concentration of the bleaching agent will affect how long you wear the trays. Your treatment can last as little as 30 minutes per day, or you can choose trays that stay in place overnight. With a variety of options, we can customize your at-home treatment to meet your needs.
For patients who want to whiten their teeth quickly, we also offer Opalescence® Boost in our office. A typical Opalescence® Boost treatment session lasts 45 minutes. Brian will first use a shade guide to determine the current shade of your teeth. Then he will apply the bleaching gel using a gentle, brushed tip. The unique chemical formula of Opalescence® Boost allows you to achieve dramatic results without the use of a special laser or light, which helps to keep your gums hydrated.
Whiter Teeth for Life
Our free Whitening for Life program rewards patients who attend their biannual dental examination with Brian. Every six months, you are eligible to receive a free at-home whitening kit at your scheduled cleaning and exam. This program can help you maintain the results of your whitening treatment for years to come.
