Teeth Whitening in Scottsdale, AZ

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Teeth whitening uses chemicals called “peroxides” to remove stains from your teeth. Peroxides like carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide are very volatile. So when peroxide contacts stains on your tooth enamel, this “snaps” the chemical bonds that hold the stains in place. In turn, this removes them from your enamel, restoring its natural brightness. With teeth whitening from Omni Dental Studio, you can reverse years of stains and yellowing in just a single appointment with Dr. Nataliya Rozenfeld.

How It Works: The Teeth Whitening Process

Cosmetic consultation

First, Dr. Rozenfeld will meet with you to examine your mouth and discuss your smile goals. Together, you’ll decide if teeth whitening is right for you, and if you’d prefer in-office or take-home teeth whitening.

In-office whitening

At your in-office whitening appointment, Dr. Rozenfeld will clean your mouth, then prepare your gums by applying a special liquid to them. Then, she will use retractors to separate your cheeks and tongue from your teeth. Dr. Rozenfeld will apply a powerful whitener to your teeth, activate it with a UV light, and then rinse it away after a few minutes. She’ll repeat this process until your smile has reached your desired level of brightness.

Take-home whitening

In take-home whitening, Dr. Rozenfeld will begin by taking impressions and images of your mouth. She will work with a dental lab to build you a set of custom-fitted whitening trays, based on these impressions. You’ll come back in a few weeks to pick up your trays, and your whitening products. Dr. Rozenfeld will give you instructions on how to whiten your smile at home. You can take things from there, and whiten your teeth on your own schedule.

In-Office Whitening

If you’re in a hurry to get a brighter smile, we recommend in-office whitening. With in-office whitening, you can boost your smile’s brightness by 5-10 shades in just one appointment. As an experienced cosmetic dentist, Dr. Rozenfeld can help you get the smile you’ve always wanted at Omni Dental Studio.

Take-Home Whitening

Take-home whitening offers the same results as in-office whitening. But instead of getting your teeth whitened at Omni Dental Studio, you’ll be able to treat yourself in the comfort of your own home. This makes take-home whitening a great choice if you have a busy schedule, or if you just want to spend less time in the dentist’s chair.

Does Teeth Whitening Cause Sensitivity?

Yes. This is a common side effect of teeth whitening, but it usually goes away within a day or two after your treatment. To help with sensitivity-induced whitening, we recommend avoiding really hot and cold foods/drinks, taking over-the-counter pain medication, and brushing with an anti-sensitivity toothpaste such as Sensodyne.

How Long Does Whitening Last?

You can expect your results to last between 1-2 years. With proper oral hygiene, you may be able to maintain your bright smile for even longer. Brush twice a day, floss once a day, eat a tooth-healthy diet, and make sure you come to Omni Dental Studio twice a year for teeth cleanings and oral exams.

Even with your best efforts, though, your smile may eventually fade. If that happens, you can simply get a touch-up teeth whitening treatment from Dr. Rozenfeld. We’re always here to make sure your smile looks its best!
