Professional in-office teeth whitening is a successful, effective treatment that our dentist, Dr. Sara Sheikh, is proud to offer at Kennebunk Center for Dentistry. This treatment can help many patients, including you, achieve the smile of their dreams. To help you know more about this treatment, our dentist is happy to share some facts about it. Those facts are:

-Professional in-office whitening involves the use of a rubber dam, special whitening solution and an activating light. Your dentist will first protect the gums with the rubber dam. Then, she will paint the solution onto your teeth. Finally, she will activate the solution with the dental light. Your dentist will likely repeat these steps multiple times to fully whiten your smile.

-Professional in-office whitening should only require one appointment at our office.

-The results of this treatment can last 12-18 months, depending on how well you can maintain the whiteness of your smile.

-Certain habits can make the whitening results dissipate quicker, like consuming dark foods and beverages and smoking.
