Teeth Whitening in Albuquerque, NM

Teeth Whitening in Albuquerque, NM

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that uses a safe, bleach-like chemical to remove tough stains from the surface of your teeth. There are many techniques available for whitening teeth. Every patient is different, so it's important to consult with our dentist to find the method and frequency that's most appropriate for you.

Teeth Whitening Options

In-office Whitening

This whitening method uses highly concentrated whitening gel. The gel is applied to the teeth by the dentist, and a laser light is also used to enhance and speed up the whitening process. This treatment is ideal for patients who want to whiten their teeth quickly.

Trays with Whitening Gel

This is an at-home kit for whitening teeth. The whitening gel is placed in a tray that is custom-made for the patient's mouth. Patients are instructed to apply the gel to the tray and wear it over their teeth for the amount of time recommended by the dentist every day.

Teeth Whitening Strips

This method uses thin plastic strips coated with whitening gel to brighten the teeth. The gel is applied to the teeth, and the plastic strip is placed over the teeth. The gel seeps into the teeth and whitens them.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

  • Teeth whitening is a simple, non-invasive treatment. If you choose the in-office treatment, it is administered by a trained professional and you can get instant results in as little as one appointment.
  • You can get whiter teeth that can make your smile look brighter and more attractive. 
  • Having teeth that are whiter and brighter helps boost your self-esteem and make you more approachable.
  • Teeth whitening can help improve your oral hygiene. When the surface stains are removed from your teeth, you’ll be more likely to want to keep them clean and healthy for longer. 

Aftercare for Teeth Whitening

  • Even after your teeth have been whitened, you should continue to refrain from consuming stain-causing foods and beverages. 
  • Avoid teeth-damaging habits such as chewing on ice or hard candies, and using tobacco products.
  • Brush your teeth twice a day and floss once a day. 
  • Don't forget to use fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash daily.
