Teeth Whitening Teeth whitening is a great way to get a brighter, whiter smile in under 3 weeks! It is a safe and controlled way to lighten the outer enamel layer of your teeth, perfect for upcoming special occasions like weddings, family photos, and senior pictures. Here at Southwest Iowa Dental Associates, we are happy to offer at-home teeth whitening--also known as "bleaching"--to patients with healthy adult teeth.
The process is quick and easy and may be done at your regular cleaning: - We will take impressions of your teeth and evaluate for a target shade. - We will make a custom tray that fits your teeth with reservoirs to hold the bleaching agent. - We will see you quickly to deliver the trays and bleaching agent, assure correct fit and give usage instructions. - You may choose to follow up after 2 weeks for a shade check. - Maintaining your shade is simply a matter of using your trays and purchasing bleaching agent from us as needed. If you're someone who suffers from tooth sensitivity, the custom trays will also work as fluoride trays to reduce sensitivity!
