At AZ Dental Wellness, Dr. Rogel A. Carlos and his staff are pleased to provide patients in the area of Scottsdale, AZ with cosmetic enhancement services. Our dentist and his team can brighten your smile with professional-grade solutions such as teeth whitening.
What is teeth whitening?
The Hollywood elite are never shy in showing off their bright and beautiful smiles, but this doesn’t mean that patients in the area of Scottsdale, AZ are unable to obtain these enhancements as well. Our staff is excited to offer patient solutions such as teeth whitening to help them enjoy the brilliance and beauty of a stunning smile! Our practice offers two methods of professional teeth whitening that provides results far better than any over-the-counter alternative, including:
- In-office power bleaching – for patients who are seeking same-day solutions to their stained and discolored smiles, in-office power bleaching may be the option of choice. Dr. Rogel A. Carlos encourages patients to use this for faster results. This treatment is done right in the office under the care and attention of our staff. The soft tissues of the mouth are covered with a protectant gel before the whitening product is administered onto the surfaces of the teeth. Patients relax while a special light activates the whitening product and help in pulling deep stains from within the enamel. Within approximately one hour, patients will notice their smile up to eight shades whiter. The teeth are cleaned, and patients can go about their day with a beautiful new look! While this option is the more expensive solution, it is often chosen because of the same-day, dramatic results it can offer.
- Take-home whitening kits – patients interested in a more gradual enhancement of the smile and a more affordable alternative to in-office power bleaching may want to ask about our take-home whitening kits. The kit includes custom trays that are made for the patient to fit over the top and bottom dental arch. These trays are filled with whitening gel that is given by the dentist and they are worn for a specific period of time each day. Most patients will achieve eight shades whiter after a few weeks. Afterwards, patients can continue to whiten their smile on a regular basis to maintain the results and ensure that their smile is always photo-ready!
Which treatment is right for me?
When patients visit AZ Dental Wellness to learn about the cosmetic options available, they may be unsure as to which one to choose. Our professionals can help patients select the one that best suits their needs. If someone needs fast whitening for an upcoming reunion or wedding, they may be advised to consider the benefits of the in-office power bleaching. Alternatively, patients who are seeking a treatment that is affordable and provides more gradual changes to the teeth may be led to consider the take-home whitening kits.
How do these products differ from over-the-counter treatments?
Many patients ask our team about the whitening products that are available in their local drugstores. The oral care aisle may have several different selections that may be considered for smile enhancement. However, many of these are created with low concentrations of the active ingredients. This can cause poor results if any. Whether patients use the whitening strips or special whitening toothpaste, they will not achieve the same look as they would with professional-strength options.
Who is a candidate?
Patients are evaluated by our team before they undergo in-office or take-home whitening treatments to determine if they are appropriate candidates. Patients who do not have dental restorations such as crowns, bridges, or veneers may be able to undergo treatment. During an initial visit with Dr. Rogel A. Carlos, patients can be evaluated and can take the time to learn about these solutions.
