Brighten Your Smile With Professional Teeth Whitening.

Professional teeth whitening is one of the fastest and most noticeable ways to brighten your smile. Dr. Emma Y. Wu offers both in-office treatments and professional take-home teeth whitening kits in North Andover, MA. In-office teeth whitening can lighten your teeth by up to eight shades in under an hour, and the professional take-home kits we offer are much more effective at removing deep stains than over-the-counter kits.

Professional Teeth Whitening Candidates

Virtually any patient desiring a brighter smile is a good candidate for professional teeth whitening. Candidates should also be in good oral health, free of gum disease, tooth decay, worn enamel, and exposed tooth roots. These conditions must be addressed before moving forward with teeth whitening.

If you are considering a cosmetic procedure such as porcelain veneers or bonding, undergoing a preliminary teeth whitening treatment can provide a beautiful complement. Many Invisalign® patients also choose to undergo teeth whitening at the end of treatment to illuminate their new, symmetrical smile.

In-office Whitening

Before teeth whitening can begin, you will receive a regular dental cleaning to clear your teeth of plaque and other obstructions. Your teeth need to have clean surfaces to achieve the maximum benefits of a whitening treatment. Dr. Wu uses the advanced Philips Zoom!® line of teeth whitening products, which uses a safe and powerful hydrogen peroxide formula.

When treatment begins, your lips and gums will be covered, leaving only your teeth exposed for the application of the gel. A specially designed light is used in combination with the gel to intensify the whitening effects. The highly concentrated gel is applied to teeth three times in intervals of about 15 to 20 minutes. Results are immediate, and can be maintained with at-home whitening, daily brushing and flossing, and regular checkups.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Dr. Wu will take impressions of your teeth to make custom trays for your take-home whitening kit. A lower concentration of the gel is placed in the trays, which are worn for a prescribed amount of time each day. Dr. Wu will explain the timeline of your at-home treatment during your in-office treatment. Many choose to wear their trays overnight, making this treatment an easy fit for even the busiest schedules.
Often, patients who undergo in-office whitening will also undergo at-home treatment to maintain a bright smile. Dr. Wu can recommend an ongoing treatment plan to keep your smile brilliant.
