Many men and women strive for a brighter smile, but are often unsure of which products to choose from, or which methods are safe for their teeth. In the USA, approximately $1.4 billion was spent in 2016 on the over-the-counter teeth whitening products (American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry). Teeth whitening products offered in drug stores tend to be expensive and have limited effectiveness at whitening consumer’s smiles. At Hicks Dental Group of Prescott, we offer safe and effective teeth whitening for all of our patients.
Rather than spending extended time at the dentist’s office, Hicks Dental Group offers patients at-home teeth whitening trays. Our patients will book an appointment where we will take impressions of the patient’s teeth to create custom-made dental trays for using at home. The customized trays are filled with a special gel and are worn for a fixed period of time that is based on your specific whitening goals. Your dentist will assess the condition of your teeth to help you determine the best whitening routine. The gel that is used for whitening consists of carbamide peroxide, which breaks down into hydrogen peroxide that will remove stains and whiten your teeth. The take-home trays are ideal for patients with busy schedules who are looking for safe and effective whitening treatments.
At Hicks Dental Group of Prescott, our dentists will help each patient coordinate their whitening routine with their specific dental goals. Certain patients may only need short-term or minimal amounts of whitening time, while other patients may need to whiten weekly for longer periods of time. Each routine is catered specifically to the patient and will create effective, safe teeth whitening. Schedule your teeth whitening appointment today to get your smile ready for any event!
