Your Teeth Whitening Treatment in New Orleans, LA
We offer a number of whitening options, including KöR whitening systems. If you opt for our in-office whitening treatment, you can plan on the process taking just over an hour. In the time it takes for your lunch break, you can have teeth that are several shades whiter!
Most patients whose teeth and gums are healthy will find they are good candidates for teeth whitening in New Orleans, and they can expect predictable results from the treatment.
Using one of our tooth whitening systems—depending on your needs—Dr. Rathke will prepare you for the procedure by covering up the soft tissue of your lips and gums to keep bleaching agents away from these sensitive areas.
After applying the bleaching gel to the teeth, he’ll use an ultraviolet lamp that enhances the lightening process. The bleaching agent will remain on the teeth for about 15 minutes before being removed, and we will repeat the full process two more times.
Most of our patients report feeling no sensitivity after professional teeth whitening in 70130.
Maintaining Your New White Smile from Downtown Dental
After you’ve made the investment in professional teeth whitening with your cosmetic dentist in New Orleans, you’re going to love the way your smile looks. Here are some ways to keep it bright and white.
- Think about any habits you might have that are contributing to the staining of your teeth. If you are a smoker or tobacco user, keeping your teeth whiter is just one of many reasons to quit.
- If you indulge in beverages such as coffee, tea, and red wine, think twice before consuming them. If you decide to indulge occasionally, rinse your mouth with water afterward, and be sure to brush regularly. Some foods, such as curries and berries, can also cause staining. You can also follow up in-office treatment with an at-home kit to give yourself touch-ups every so often. Dr. Rathke can provide you with custom trays and professional-grade gel that you can use at home to touch up your smile.
