Dr. Brad Pitts Family and Cosmetic Dentistry offers teeth whitening in Lexington, SC for patients who desire an easy smile enhancement.
Why Do I Need Whiter Teeth?
The color of our teeth makes a big difference in our appearance and whiter teeth instantly create a more dazzling smile.
Unfortunately, in today’s world, there are many factors that work against a white smile. Poor oral hygiene and diet are just two of the various factors that can cause discolored, yellow teeth. Other factors include:
- Certain Medications
When you choose our teeth bleaching procedure, however, you can reverse the discoloration and create a glowing smile!
Custom Tray Whitening
At Dr. Brad Pitts Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer custom tray whitening for your teeth. This procedure is pain-free, easy, quick, and offers dramatic change to the color of your teeth!
What to Expect
Our teeth bleaching process is an easy procedure. Patients who have it done first meet with Dr. Brad Pitts. During this consultation, the patient discusses the desired results.
Next, Dr. Pitts creates impressions of your mouth, which will be sent to our laboratory and used to create your custom trays.
These trays are custom designed to the shapes and grooves of your teeth and oral structures. The close alignment allows for maximum contact between our whitening gel and your teeth. This guarantees dramatically whiter teeth!
Once we receive your trays back from the laboratory, you are able to take them home to whiten your teeth in private and on your own time. The trays are crafted out of soft, flexible plastic and can be worn comfortably for long periods of time.
To use, simply apply our high strength, hydrogen peroxide based whitening gel into the trays and wear for our dentist recommended amount of time. While most of our patients opt to wear their whitening trays at night, the trays can be worn at any time of the day.
How Long Does It Take To See Results?
Most of our patients report seeing a dramatic change in the color of their teeth within the first 7-10 days of wearing their custom trays. Results can vary depending on the patient.
Results typically last up to 6 months. However, diet and oral hygiene habits can affect how long your teeth stay white. Patients can restore the look of their newly whitened teeth through touch-ups at our office.
