According to Statistic Brain Research Institute, 32 percent of Americans are concerned with the appearance of their teeth. Ninety-six percent believe an attractive smile makes members of the opposite sex more appealing. In-office teeth whitening adds dramatic sparkle. Patel & Dornhecker Dentistry brings this fast, economical service to patients throughout the greater Cincinnati and Fairfield Township area.
Even with good oral hygiene, teeth can become dingy. Coffee, tea, cola, and red wine leave pigments behind. Smoking and smokeless tobacco stain teeth. Enamel thins as we age, allowing the yellowish under-layer of dentin to show through. In-office whitening returns luster to teeth, and can improve brightness beyond the natural color.
The process is simple, painless, and takes only about an hour:
- You settle comfortably in the treatment chair. Headphones and television are provided for your relaxation.
- Cheek retractors keep lips and soft tissues out of the way.
- Medical-grade whitening gel (up to 40 percent peroxide concentration) is applied to teeth and left on for 20 minutes.
- Your eyes are protected, and the process is repeated two more times, using a special light to accelerate whitening.
- Teeth are rinsed, and you leave the office with a luminous smile.
A dazzling difference
The laser activated system we use safely brightens tooth enamel up to 14 shades whiter. If your teeth are very sensitive, we can take extra steps to ensure comfort during and after the procedure. To maintain results, you may choose custom-fit whitening trays for periodic at-home application of bleaching gel. Our dentists will talk with you about the cost and wearing schedule appropriate for your teeth.
There are many retail whitening products, but none offer the professional results of in-office treatment, or the oversight of a trained dental team. Patel & Dornhecker Dentistry has offices in Fairfield (513) 815-3166
, and the Western Hills section of Cincinnati (513) 815-3188
