Teeth WhiteningFARMINGTON, CT

How would you like to dazzle your friends and family with a brighter, whiter smile? According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, nearly all Americans (99.7% to be precise!) believe a smile is an important social asset, while nearly 75% believe an unattractive smile can actually hurt your chances for a successful career. One of the simplest, quickest, and arguably most effective way to make your smile more attractive is to whiten or "bleach" your teeth. Farmington Village Dental Associates provides a number of convenient options to brighten your smile.

Not sure where to start? No problem! As part of our affordable dental care options, we offer FREE tooth shade analysis to help you better understand your whitening options.

Deep Bleaching™

Deep Bleaching is widely recognized as the most effective teeth whitening system available today. It provides a solution to unpredictable whitening results and acute tooth-sensitivity, both of which are common with other bleaching systems. Additionally, Deep Bleaching has been shown to whiten tetracycline-stained teeth in a short time. Tetracycline is a broad-spectrum antibiotic prescribed for use against many bacterial infections and even to treat acne. One of its side effects is that it can cause permanent stains to teeth. Since tetracycline stains are often dark and deep in teeth, they don’t respond very well to most whitening techniques, so porcelain veneers are many dentists’ corrective treatment of choice. Deep Bleaching offers another solution before our doctors recommend more extensive smile makeover procedures.

Farmington CT Professional Teeth Deep Bleaching

The Deep Bleaching professional teeth whitening process involves two in-office bleaching sessions as well as at-home whitening with custom bleaching trays that are worn while you sleep for several consecutive nights between the two in-office visits. The bleaching trays fit closely and compress against your teeth at the gumline, creating a seal that keeps the special bleaching gel in the tray and prevents you from swallowing it. While you sleep wearing the trays, the bleaching goes deeper and deeper through the layers of stain (hence “deep” bleaching), which allows the final in-office bleaching session to reach levels of white you never thought possible!

One-Hour In-Office Professional Teeth Whitening

Our dentists also offer an in-office procedure that is a clinically proven, safe, and gentle way to get teeth whiter in one hour with results that can last years! A professional-strength whitening gel is applied to your teeth, and is then activated by a special light for three 20-minute sessions while you relax, listen to music, or even sleep. Our busy patients really appreciate this one-time, one-hour treatment.

Take-Home Tray Whitening

If you’d rather whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, we also offer a couple of take-home whitening options. We provide professional strength preloaded whitening trays that fit comfortably over your teeth right out of the box, or, if you’re looking for a custom fit, we’re happy to create a customized whitening tray just for your mouth! Either way, these trays are used to apply a gel made from a safe concentration of hydrogen peroxide, allowing the tray to remain safely on your teeth for extended periods of time (sometimes overnight). Take-home whitening can achieve the same stain-free look as our in-office whitening, it just takes a little longer.
