• Teeth Whitening

  • Many people are interested in whitening or brightening their smile. It seems like we¬†receive¬†more questions about bleaching than just about any other topic. At Prairie Orthodontics we offer three different options to meet the needs of our patients:

    Custom Trays

    With this option, impressions are taken and whitening trays are custom made in our on-site lab. Our staff verifies the fit of the trays and demonstrates how to load the tray with whitening agent. Custom whitening trays allow the user to whiten their teeth at their own pace. It also gives the user the ability to touch up the whiteness or brightness of their smile before special occasions. Custom whitening trays are a great option for those who are willing to put in the time to wear them.

    In-office Whitening or 1-hour Whitening

    One hour whitening allows for fast, dramatic results. The system used at Prairie Orthodontics has been shown to brighten smiles up to 14 shades in as little as 60 minutes. Our patients have been very pleased with the results they have achieved in such a short period of time. We give our patients the option of spending a little bit more time with the whitening agent if they want to achieve a little extra brightness to their smile. Custom trays can be made as well so the beautiful shade of white can last for as long as the patient likes.

    Permanent Whitening

    With the permanent whitening option, minimal prep veneers are used. In other words, we use thin pieces of porcelain to cover the front side of the teeth. The process may take several appointments but the results are fantastic. With this process, not only can we brighten smiles, but we can also make cosmetic changes if desired.
