It’s amazing how much a bright smile can boost a person’s look.

Having clean, bright teeth can influence your ability to win people’s trust and interest. It can also make you appear more youthful and energetic.

Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening in Tulsa is one of our most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures. This procedure is both safe and controlled. Best of all, the results are immediate! While traditional drugstore treatments can take several uses before any noticeable difference, in-office whitening takes the treatment to the next level. When you come to our office we’ll use our equipment and our expertise to administer a more intense concentration of bleaching gel so that you can enjoy a noticeable difference immediately.

What is the Procedure Like?

Before we begin the whitening process we’ll need to prepare your teeth. We’ll thoroughly clean the teeth you want treated, and we’ll get rid of any visible plaque. We’ll also analyze the health and the condition of your mouth to check for any potential risks, like gum disease or severe tooth decay.

Once your mouth is all ready, we'll proceed with the following steps.

  1. We’ll place a cheek retractor in your mouth. This will expose the teeth that show when you smile.
  2. A liquid rubber dam or hardening resin will be painted onto your gums. This will protect them from the bleaching gel.
  3. We’ll apply the bleaching gel. This will remain on the teeth for 15 to 30 minutes.
  4. When the first application of gel is complete, we’ll wash it off. We’ll check to see how well the teeth are whitening, and see if another dose of bleaching gel is required.
  5. If more is necessary, we will then put on a second application of bleaching gel for another period of 15 to 30 minutes.
  6. Depending on the circumstances, we may use a strong light to enhance the effects of the whitening. This takes place after removing the second gel application.
  7. Once done, we’ll remove the cheek retractors. You’ll rinse your mouth and we’ll measure the results. Out of the total of 16 shades of teeth, your teeth can whiten between two and eight shades after this procedure. However, if you haven’t obtained a satisfactory level of whitening we’ll work with you to get the results you hope for. This can likely be reached with take-home bleaching trays or another whitening appointment.

Generally these steps are completely comfortable and pain-free. Most of our patients doze or watch TV during the treatment. Let us know if there’s anything more we can do to make sure that your experience is pleasant and comfortable!

There are a few things you can do to help your whitened teeth last. The first thing you’ll want to do is practice good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing your teeth regularly. This will prevent complications from arising and preserve your whitened teeth for as long as possible by keeping plaque and bacteria under control.

Another thing you can do is avoid food and drinks that can stain your teeth. These substances have a strong color that can permanently rub off on your teeth. This staining is especially potent on a freshly-whitened smile. These substances include: Coffee, dark-colored soda, dark-colored tea, red wine, and dark fruit juices.

Regular checkups at our office will also help you maintain your brightened smile. When you come we’ll be able to professionally clean your teeth and ensure that all is going well.
