If you’re interested in a dramatically whiter smile in record time, our in-office whitening procedure might be your best option. The is usually a same-day procedure that can be scheduled in advance by calling Dr. Goldberg’s office.
Dr. Goldberg prefers to use Opalescence® whitening products exclusively, because they provide predictable results. But before proceeding, we will protect your gums and apply a desensitizing paste to your teeth. Next, we will apply the whitening gel to your teeth using a very small brush. The gel is chemically activated, so you don’t have to sit under a hot light for an hour. We will apply another coat of gel if needed. Most of our patients reach their ideal shade in about an hour to an hour and a half!
Teeth whitening treatments are often an essential part of a smile makeover, a treatment plan that incorporates several procedures to achieve a patient’s desired smile. For instance, many of our Invisalign® patients opt to have their teeth whitened once they complete their orthodontic treatment. For patients who have one or two porcelain veneers placed as part of their smile makeover, a tooth whitening treatment can result in a dazzling new smile.
