Bleaching solutions are a relatively inexpensive way to greatly improve the appearance of your teeth. When staining is due to coffee, tea, wine, or tobacco, teeth whitening using bleaching solutions can reduce the discoloration made by these products.
What are bleaching solutions created with?
Whether using bleaches in-office or at home, all tooth-whitening systems use peroxide-based bleaching agents. These agents can be either carbamide or hydrogen peroxides.
What is the difference between dental office and over the counter bleaching solutions?
Store bought bleaching systems contain anywhere from 3% to 20% peroxide-based agents, whereas our office provides 15% to 43% peroxide-based agents. These higher concentrations are more effective and faster at brightening your teeth. Additionally, we create flexible molds into which the bleaching gel is placed, thus holding it in contact with the teeth for a longer period and greatly increasing its efficacy. This allows you to use less material and swallow less material as well.
Are bleaching solutions safe?
While our bleaching solutions are more concentrated and effective, they meet ADA standards of safety and effectiveness and the ADA’s Seal of Acceptance.
Dr. Sackman, Leesa and the staff know how to take care of people. I have seen Dr. Sackman speak about the work he does and it is clear he is educated and committed to providing excellent care for his patients.
We’ve been patients at Redmond Family Dentistry for years. Mostly we see Dr. Sackman, who is pleasant and takes time to explain things. His staff are wonderful too. At the front desk, they take time to walk you through insurance, billing, and costs of recommended treatments. The hygienists do a good job with cleanings, which, let’s be honest, are nobody’s favorite way to spend an hour. They have been great with my daughter since she was little.
This office is AMAZING. I can’t say enough good things about them. I needed to have a root canal done pretty urgently and they did everything possible to fit me in within my timeframe. They referred me out to an endodontist for the actual root canal, but all the other work was done in their office. Dr. Whittle did most of my work and she was awesome. The assistants were really great as well. They were exactly on time, never a wait. They numbed me well and were concerned about my comfort. I really really really hate the dentist, hence waiting until I had to have a root canal, but I will definitely be going here again.
