At Macleod Trail Dental, we utilize the technologically advanced Chairside Lumibrite Whitening Solution in conjunction with take-home trays. The procedure is simple and minimally-invasive. Plus, it offers proven and incredible results.
The teeth whitening procedure involves:
Step 1: Consultation
First, one of our qualified dentists conducts a comprehensive examination of your teeth and gums to ensure proper health. Additionally, you will discuss oral hygiene and lifestyle habits to help you optimize results.
Step 2: Teeth Cleaning
One week prior to your appointment, schedule a dental cleaning and scaling. The dental cleaning removes calculus or plaque on your teeth. Otherwise, the whitening gel can’t penetrate tough layers of grime. As a result, we can ensure you receive maximum benefits from the treatment.
Step 3: Teeth Whitening
At last, it’s time for your teeth whitening appointment! First, your gums are covered with a ‘paint on dental dam.’ This prevents damage to soft gum tissues.Next, a lip moisturizer is applied to protect delicate lip surfaces. Then, a Lumibrite desensitizing enhancer is applied to your teeth. Lastly, the whitening gel is applied.
Once your teeth are coated, a Sapphire PAC light is positioned at your mouth. Depending on your aesthetic needs, a timer is set for 15 to 60 minutes.
