Why Choose In-Office Whitening?

You’re barraged with ads almost everyday about whitening toothpastes, whitening gels, and whitening strips, that it can be intimidating to pick one on your own. How do you know that you’re getting the results you want? Here in Lincoln, NE, you can get results you can rely on, thanks to the help of Dr. Hoffman at Family and Implant Dentistry.

What is In-Office Whitening?

In-office teeth whitening is exactly what is sounds like: instead of wrestling with over-the-counter kits, patients can receive more targeted and reliable treatment in-office with their dental care provider. At Family and Implant Dentistry, we want our patients to feel confident in their teeth whitening procedure. We don’t use just any teeth whitening, but have invested in products that simply work. In addition, we can help you control what shade of white you want and how you can reach that.

Your whitening treatment is also discussed right here in our comfortable office. You’ll be able to speak with Dr. Hoffman one-on-one about the treatment and what additional steps to take when you get home. We also want to ensure that your teeth don’t become extra sensitive as a result of the whitening treatment, which is apt to happen with some patients.

Over-the-Counter Whitening Treatments

When you don’t consult with a dental care provider about the teeth whitening treatment you’re interested in, you could run the risk of using it incorrectly or not seeing the results you expected. Whitening toothpastes can remove surface stains, and tend to brighten gradually. But it most likely will do little to remove hard stains that have set into the enamel.

Whitening gel strips are another option commonly found in stores. These strips are stuck to your teeth with an adhesive and are left on for a few hours or so. It can also take 10 days or more to see a difference.
