Teeth Whitening SmileWant That Glamorous Smile?

Dr. Timothy Bui offers teeth whitening in his Garden Grove and Newport Beach, CA, offices. Read below to learn of the three types of teeth whitening procedures provided by his practice!

At-Home Teeth Whitening

This form of whitening utilizes custom-made upper and lower trays made for you to take home. Dr. Bui will instruct you to place bleaching gels in these trays and to wear them after dinner for an hour. You should do this every evening for 2-3 weeks, depending on how much work your teeth need.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

For this method, Dr. Bui will begin by placing a device in your mouth that is designed to keep the cheeks and lips open, while also preventing soft tissue from coming in contact with soon to be applied bleaching gel. Your dentist will then administer the gel on your teeth and begin exposing them to ARC light to accelerate and amplify tooth whitening. While this is happening, relaxing music will be played to create a sense of comfort.

You may find his procedure better than the at-home teeth whitening kit because there is a lessened possibility of teeth sensitivity and gum discomfort. Additionally, the procedure is quicker and provides more immediate results.

Laser Teeth Whitening

During laser teeth whitening, Dr. Bui will isolate your teeth from the gums and lips using a specialized retractor. He'll then apply powder or liquid gel on the teeth and use a pulsating laser beam to whiten them. This process can be repeated 2-6 times.

Similar to the in-office method, this procedure is advantageous because there's a lessened possibility of teeth sensitivity and fast results.
