Teeth Whitening Bella Vista

For a brighter, whiter smile.

Do you want whiter teeth? The good news is you can achieve that with professional teeth whitening. Professional teeth whitening is a quick, easy way to achieve brighter whiter teeth. No wonder it’s become one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments in the world.

Over time our teeth naturally discolour due to age, lifestyle and issues beyond our control. Having discoloured teeth can negatively impact your self-esteem. At Lexington Dental we want our patients to feel confident when flashing their smiles. One way to get that confidence back is with professional teeth whitening.

Take-home or in-chair teeth whitening:
what's the difference?

You may have come across the terms in-chair and take-home teeth whitening. These are two types of professional teeth whitening options:

In-chair teeth whitening

In-chair teeth whitening allows us to take your teeth multiple shades whiter in just one session. It usually takes around 90 minutes in the dental chair. We use a bleaching agent and a special light. The light activates the bleaching agent turning your teeth whiter. In-chair teeth whitening is the fastest whitening option. We use a high concentration of the whitening agent only available to dentists. We can recommend further treatments where you need them.

At-home teeth whitening allows to get whiter teeth from the comfort of your own home. We take impressions of your teeth and make custom-fitted trays. We also provide a bleaching agent and instructions. simply apply the bleaching gel to your trays and wear them for around one hour a day for approximately two weeks.

Who makes a good candidate for teeth whitening?

Although teeth whitening is a safe and non-invasive treatment, not everyone is a suitable candidate. If you’re interested in teeth whitening we suggest speaking to one of our friendly dentists. In the meantime, here is a general guide for the best professional teeth whitening candidates:

  1. Adults with healthy teeth and gums
  2. Adults without extensive cosmetic works such as veneers or crowns (as these do not whiten, only the teeth around them)
  3. Adults with yellowing or stained teeth
  4. Adults who are NOT pregnant or breastfeeding

How long does it last?

With proper oral care habits your professional teeth whitening can last up to two years. This means brushing your teeth twice a day for two minutes and flossing once a day. You should eat a balanced diet and try to avoid food and drinks that may stain your teeth. You can get top ups to brighten your teeth every year or so if you wish.
