What Are The Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening?
Many patients choose over-the-counter teeth whitening due to convenience. However, when compared to professional teeth whitening, over-the-counter whitening solutions offer inconsistent results.
Professional teeth whitening utilizes professional-grade bleaching agents that are designed to penetrate the tooth enamel and reveal a whiter smile. With professional teeth whitening, patients have the options of visiting our office for a whitening treatment. Greenway Dental Care can work with you to determine which solution is right for you.
Patients who choose professional teeth whitening can look forward to these key benefits:

Teeth Whitening FAQs
How long does the treatment take?
With in-office teeth whitening, we can actually brighten teeth by multiple shades in a single visit. Your dentist will first place a protective covering over your lips and gums before applying a powerful bleaching gel. The gel is then activated with a curing light, lifting the stains from your teeth in about an hour.
Will teeth whitening work for me?
We will first need to understand the causes of your discoloration, as well as the severity. In some cases, teeth stains may be so severe they don’t respond to in-office procedures. In these situations, we may employ dental bonding or a restoration, such as veneers or porcelain crowns, to mask the stains.
How do I avoid future teeth stains?
You can start by cutting back on foods and drinks that contain staining agents, such as berries, tea, red wine, coffee, and soda. Next, you can improve your oral hygiene. You should brush and floss daily to remove food particles and plaque from the teeth. This helps keep your teeth brighter in between dental cleanings and whitening procedures.
