Teeth WhiteningIn-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments from your dentist’s office can help you get a whiter smile easily. In-office whitening treatments provide the fastest results, while take-home whitening kits are convenient, allowing you to whiten your teeth according to your schedule. Dr. Dennis Lockney and Dr. Tyler Lockney are your dentists for professional in-office and take-home teeth whitening in Concord, NC.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening treatments applied in-office provide the fastest means of achieving a significantly whiter smile. A professional strength hydrogen peroxide whitening gel is used that whitens the teeth by several shades in a single treatment session with the results lasting for several years before additional treatments are needed. The whitening results achieved with in-office treatments are far superior to what is possible with over-the-counter whitening products that do not contain professional strength bleaching agents.

During in-office teeth whitening treatment in Concord, a plastic retractor is used to hold the mouth open. Then a protective gel is applied over the gums to protect against the whitening gel, which can be a bit too harsh for the gums. The hydrogen peroxide whitening gel is then carefully and evenly applied to the surfaces of the teeth. The whitening gel remains on the teeth for approximately one hour while it penetrates to remove deep stains. When the whitening gel is removed, the teeth will be several shades whiter.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening take-home kits are a convenient alternative to in-office whitening for individuals whose schedules make in-office appointments challenging to arrange. Take-home teeth whitening kits contain a professional strength whitening gel and comfortable plastic trays custom-made to fit perfectly over the top and bottom rows of teeth. When you are ready to whiten your teeth, simply add the whitening gel to the trays and place the trays over the teeth for about an hour. The teeth will be visibly whiter within just a few sessions.

Get a whiter smile easily with professional in-office or take-home teeth whitening treatments. Professional whitening treatments from a dentist are the most effective way to quickly whiten your teeth by several shades.
