Dr. Fulop-Goodling offers several different whitening systems. When trays with bleach are used, impressions are taken and the resulting trays are filled with a bleaching agent. Results can be seen as early as 3 days. Varying agents can be used and this method is an extremely effective way of whitening sensitive teeth. This method can be used on patients after the full eruption of their second molars, around 12 years of age.
When the in-office bleaching method is used, a stronger agent is painted on the teeth and then activated with a plasma light. Depending on the strength used, the agent can whiten teeth up to 8 to 10 shades lighter. This method is wonderful for patients who can not tolerate wearing a tray or who have a special occasion coming up soon.
