Are your teeth the color you want them to be? If not, whitening them may not be as difficult as you may think. Today’s whitening treatments are surprisingly fast and convenient. To learn more about the teeth whitening treatments offered by your Mansfield TX dentists, Dr. Blair Jones and Dr. Seth Harris, continue reading below.

In-Office Teeth Whitening Treatment

If you have always thought of professional teeth whitening as the treatment performed in shopping malls in front of many onlookers, don’t fret. Teeth whitening treatment performed in-office is done in a private setting. For the procedure, the lips and gums are covered before a whitening solution is applied to teeth. Once the solution has been applied, it is activated with a special light. This treatment is done in cycles (usually between three and four) for about one hour. Following the treatment, teeth can be as many as 10 shades lighter, and because the results of the procedure are instant, you can show off a brilliant new smile on your way out of the dental office.

At-Home Teeth Whitening Treatment

If you have a busy schedule, or if you prefer the comfort and privacy of your own home, at-home whitening treatment may appeal to you. This whitening method supplies patients with custom-fitted trays and a whitening solution. Patients can simply fill their trays with the solution and wear them for a specified duration. While wearing the trays, patients are free to watch television, work with a computer, or simply relax. Although significantly slower in producing results than in-office whitening—at-home whitening takes between two and three weeks—the added convenience of receiving treatment according to your own schedule, makes at-home whitening a desirable option for many patients.
