Do you have stained, yellowed, or discolored teeth? Are you looking for a quick and comfortable way to brighten your smile?
LUMIBRITE™ teeth whitening treatment gently whitens the tooth enamel easily and without the need for UV light. Waterford Family and Cosmetic Dentistry provide teeth whitening as a cosmetic dental treatment for patients in Leland, NC. The most common causes of tooth discoloration are staining foods and beverages, smoking and tobacco use, certain medications, and age. LUMIBRITE erases years of stains over time with take-home treatment or in just one visit for in-office treatment.
LUMIBRITE™ Whitening Treatment
Our office offers both in-office and take-home teeth whitening. We can work with you to determine which professional teeth whitening treatment fits your cosmetic goals, budget, and lifestyle. Patients will need to have healthy teeth to undergo professional teeth whitening treatment. Before creating your treatment plan, we will examine the teeth and gums and provide restorative or general treatments as needed.
If your teeth are severely stained and do not respond to whitening treatment, we may recommend porcelain veneers or dental bonding. These treatments cover the front of the tooth and immediately change its form and color,m also providing a permanent result.
Our in-office treatment uses light and a whitening gel to quickly brighten the tooth enamel. We will use a polishing paste to clean and prepare the teeth for treatment. Then, we allow our patients to choose the level of brightness they would like: natural, white, or supreme white. We coat the teeth with the gel and use the Sapphire® Supreme Plasma Arc Curing Light. Patients may see results in as little as 30 minutes in our office.
For patients who want to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own home, we provide LUMIBRITE™ Take-Home Whitening. We will take impressions of the teeth in our office and use those impressions as a basis for your whitening trays. Applying the whitening gel to these trays will whiten the teeth over time.
Teeth Whitening FAQs
Learn more about teeth whitening treatment below:
Is professional teeth whitening safe?
Yes, teeth whitening does not damage the teeth and uses a gel that is formulated with sensitivity in mind. In general, whitening procedures are widely performed and minimally invasive treatments that keep the dental structure intact. LUMIBRITE specifically does not use UV light that other whitening methods may utilize.
How is LUMIBRITE different from other whitening treatments?
LUMIBRITE provides long-lasting results with quick treatment. When performed in our office, this whitening treatment produces results in under one hour, usually after 30 minutes. Patients with sensitive teeth or those who prefer a more gradual treatment can customize their care with the strength of their whitening gel. Our take-home LUMIBRITE treatment is beneficial for patients who want more natural results.
