    Smile Perfected Whitening Treatment

    Smile Perfected is a professional teeth whitening treatment designed to make your teeth several shades whiter in just 20 minutes. This quick and efficient process is ideal for those with busy schedules or sensitive teeth.

    1. Preparation: First, your dentist will apply a special gel to protect your gums and other soft tissues in your mouth. This is important because it ensures the whitening agent only affects your teeth, reducing the risk of irritation.
    2. Whitening Gel: Next, a powerful yet safe whitening gel is carefully applied to the surfaces of your teeth. This gel is designed to break down stains and discolorations.
    3. LED Light: An LED light is then used to activate the gel. This light helps to accelerate the whitening process by enhancing the effectiveness of the gel, allowing it to penetrate deeper into the enamel and lift stubborn stains.

    The entire process is comfortable and straightforward, typically taking around 20 minutes. Many patients see noticeable results after just one session, making it perfect for anyone looking for a quick smile enhancement before special events like weddings, reunions, or job interviews.

    Custom Bleaching Trays

    For those who prefer to whiten their teeth at home, custom bleaching trays offer a highly effective and convenient option. These trays are specially made to fit your teeth, ensuring an even distribution of the whitening gel and consistent results.

    • Dental Impressions: Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth using a special mold. These impressions are then used to create custom trays that fit your mouth precisely, ensuring that the whitening gel covers all surfaces of your teeth evenly.
    • Whitening Gel: Along with your custom trays, you’ll receive a professional-grade whitening gel. This gel is stronger than over-the-counter options, providing better and faster results.
    • At-Home Use: You’ll be given detailed instructions on how to use your custom trays at home. Typically, you’ll fill the trays with the whitening gel and wear them for a specific period each day, usually for about 30 minutes to an hour. This process is repeated daily or as directed by your dentist until you achieve your desired level of whiteness.

    One of the great benefits of custom bleaching trays is that they offer a high degree of control over the whitening process. You can whiten your teeth gradually, which can result in a more natural look. Additionally, the trays are reusable, making this method a cost-effective solution in the long run. You can purchase more whitening gel as needed to maintain your bright smile.
