Teeth whitening treatments are one of the most commonly requested procedures at Duncan G. Howard DDS. Dr. Howard and our staff believes that West Covina patients should have smiles that they love to show off. While we offer a range of cosmetic dentistry services to makeover any smile, teeth whitening is the most popular because of the quick and noticeable results.
Benefits of Teeth Whitening at Duncan G. Howard DDS
There are many over-the-counter products that are designed to be used at home without the need for supervision by a dentist. However, these over-the-counter products cannot provide the same level of whitening strength as the professional-grade treatments provided at Duncan G. Howard DDS. Additionally, the products available in stores take a longer time to garner noticeable whitening.
At our West Covina office, our teeth bleaching products have concentrations of hydrogen peroxide ranging from 25% to 40%. Teeth bleaching products sold in stores typically have concentrations of 3.5% or less. Before the bleaching product is applied by Dr. Howard or a member of our dental staff, a protective gel is applied to the gums. Whitening procedures in our office often only take one hour and only need to be repeated if the desired level of whitening is not achieved.
