SLC Dental’s Comfortable Teeth Whitening Experience
Teeth Cleaning and Exam
SLC Dental uses an industry-leading whitening system for fast, comfortable treatments right in our dental chair. Before whitening, Dr. Palmer will perform a comprehensive dental exam and cleaning to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy.
Dr. Palmer will place soft tissue protectors over the gums to shield them from the whitening gel. Then, he’ll customize a lightweight, vacuum-formed tray to your teeth to hold the teeth-whitening gel against them. The powerful whitening gel will be applied to the tray and teeth, and you’ll wear special glasses to protect your eyes.
Our professional teeth whitening treatment system employs blue-light technology to accelerate and activate the hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. Treatments take about an hour, during which you can relax and enjoy our comfortable office environment. A member of our dental team will periodically check your results to ensure we achieve your desired results.
Finalized Teeth Whitening Results
Once we’ve determined your teeth are as white as you hoped, we’ll rinse the carbamide peroxide whitening gel from your teeth. You can now enjoy your stunning smile!
Some patients experience temporary tooth sensitivity or gum irritation from the bleaching agents, so Dr. Palmer will advise you on proper aftercare. Avoiding staining foods and beverages after teeth whitening will help preserve your bright new smile.
