Teeth Whitening Options

If you want to take your smile to the next level, teeth whitening can help. At St. Mary’s Dental, Dr. McCray and Dr. Demer will evaluate your smile to determine if “in-office whitening” or “take-home whitening” are options for you!

In-Office & At-Home Teeth Whitening

In-office whitening, also known as chairside bleaching or ZOOM whitening is performed by the dentist using a powerful light in combination with strong whitening gel. In-office whitening usually requires multiple one-hour visits to achieve optimal results. Consequently, “chairside whitening” is usually more expensive since it involves a significant amount of the dentist’s time. On the other hand, “at-home whitening” procedures are much less expensive and involve the use of custom-fabricated mouth trays that are loaded with 10-22% Opalescense whitening gel.

Both options work very well and may lighten teeth up to 10-12 shades lighter. If you want to whiten your teeth safely and effectively in a comfortable environment, you’ll love your whitening options here. Whether you choose in-office whitening or at-home whitening, you will be using a professional grade whitening gel that you can’t find over-the-counter. You can feel much more secure when you choose to whiten your teeth at the dentist office or using a professional kit.
