Teeth whitening methods available
Are you interested in brightening your smile? Have you tried over-the-counter teeth whitening methods and been unhappy with the results? If so, you’re not the only one, and Dr. Munira Lokhandwala believes that patients who have had no luck improving their smiles with drugstore whitening products are better suited for professional treatments for satisfactory results.
Dr. Munira Lokhandwala of StarBrite Dental is a quality dentist who offers two primary methods of teeth whitening in her practice – take-home whitening kits and in-office power bleaching. Both are effective at providing superb results without patients wasting their money on subpar results with over-the-counter offerings.
The first method, known as in-office power bleaching, is done using the Zoom! advanced whitening system. This method of whitening is done within one appointment. Patients relax as their teeth are whitened with professional-grade bleach, which is safely administered and monitored by a dental professional throughout. Patients will notice that their smile is up to eight shades whiter after just one treatment.
The second method is our take-home whitening kit. This method is similar to the take-home whitening kits available through drugstores but with stronger ingredients and custom-made whitening trays for more precise fit and function. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala takes impressions of the teeth to fabricate these trays and make them specifically for each patient. They are given whitening gel, which is applied inside the trays and worn for 30 minutes to an hour a day for best results. Patients may also want to have a professional cleaning done before undergoing tray whitening as this can reduce the plaque and tartar on the surfaces of the teeth, which can greatly affect the results. Within a few weeks, patients will have achieved a more beautiful smile.
Dr. Munira Lokhandwala works closely with new and existing patients in her office to give them the opportunity to achieve the beautiful smile they’ve always wanted. Using quality whitening products, her team can provide true, long-lasting results.
