About Teeth Whitening

In a world where looks are everything, we know why the appearance of your smile is among the top of your cosmetic concerns. Fortunately, River Park Dental and Esthetics in Dublin, OH can help you tackle this concern with professional-strength teeth whitening. Although there are hundreds of store-bought whitening options, Dr. Phing Saurer proudly offers a product that has shown to be superior to current over-the-counter treatments. Our whitening treatments can lighten your teeth by several shades, helping you keep your amazing results for much longer than alternative options. We utilize professional-strength whitening solutions that reach beneath the surface of your teeth to remove deep stains, as opposed to consumer-level solutions that merely produce a brighter shade of yellow at best.

What to Expect with Teeth Whitening

If your teeth have deeper stains, you may be a good candidate to receive in-office professional teeth whitening at River Park Dental and Esthetics. If you would like home touch-ups, Dr. Saurer can also provide custom-made, at-home trays that are can be used with our whitening gels for maintenance. Since our practice provides multiple options for professional teeth whitening, the procedure selected for you will be determined after a consultation with Dr. Saurer. In most cases, your in-office teeth whitening treatments will be completed in under one hour through the application of a professional-strength whitening gel, along with the assistance of a lighting system that cures and whitens the teeth by several colors. Our at-home kits are also efficient but might provide a more subtle outcome over a few weeks and months. Following either treatment, you may experience some sensitivity to hot or cold beverages, but this should dissipate within a few days.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

The longevity of teeth whitening results depends on a number of factors. If you engage in maintenance activities, such as regular teeth cleaning/brushing, you may be able to see the effects of your results for as long as 2-3 years. Individuals who smoke, drink coffee or red wine, or who had more severe staining at the beginning of the process may need touch-up treatments sooner.

We personalize each treatment plan to the needs of each patient. The cost of Nightlase depends on the number of sessions that are needed to achieve the desired results. While most patients do well with 5 sessions, some require more sessions to achieve further therapeutic effects. Afterwards, maintenance sessions are every 6-12 months depending on the needs of the patient. We offer flexible financing options through iCreditWorks as well as Care Credit to help make your treatment more affordable.

The sensitivity surrounding teeth whitening will vary on an individual basis. Teeth whitening works by using certain chemicals which may irritate the tooth or the gum, and patients who are predisposed to sensitivity may notice flare-ups during or following treatment. If you react with an uncomfortable amount of pain, talk to your provider to discuss alternative methods of teeth whitening offered at River Park Dental and Esthetics.
