Having a bright, white smile has become the number one cosmetic concern of most dental patients. At Dentistry by Design we use the Opalescence Tooth Whitening System to help you achieve the bright smile you desire. Opalescence offers safe, effective and long lasting results.
This type of tooth whitening requires two visits to our office (included in the $149 fee). At the first appointment a limited exam is performed to ensure the overall health of your teeth and gums*. During this visit you will also receive impressions (molds) of your teeth to create custom, clear plastic trays that you will wear at home.
At your second appointment, you will try on the trays for proper fit and adjustments will be made if necessary. You will also receive instructions on how to properly use the product to receive the degree of whitening you desire, as well as how to care for your molds and gel.
Tooth sensitivity may occur during the time you are whitening your teeth, but rest assured it will subside shortly after you have stopped bleaching.
To start your tooth whitening process, call and set up an appointment at one of our three locations! Be sure to check out our Whitening Program available at our Sturgeon Bay and Algoma practices only.
*In absence of gum disease. For new and current patients.
