Interested in brightening up your smile? Professional whitening is a simple, safe, and effective way to restore your smile to its original luster. In this blog post, we’ll go over some of the basics of professional whitening that our patients often want to know before committing to the procedure.

How Does GLO Whitening Work?

Here at Signature Smiles Dental, we’re proud to offer GLO Whitening. GLO works by applying a gel to the teeth that is then chemically activated. That means you don’t have to sit there under a bright light for the duration of the procedure.

How Long Does Professional Teeth Whitening Take?

Probably as not as long as you’d think! An experienced team member here at one of our offices will paint the whitening gel onto your teeth, and then you’ll sit comfortably for just a short period of time. The exact duration will depend on your treatment plan. Within the hour, you’ll see a smile that’s shades lighter!

How Can I Keep My Teeth White?

If you’re thinking about getting professional whitening done, you’re probably wondering how long the results will last and how you can maximize them. While the treatment isn’t permanent, the results are long-lasting. You’ll notice the effects will last for many months, even years. And you can take some easy steps to make sure your smile stays white for as long as possible. Avoid stain-causing foods and drinks like citruses, coffee, and red wine. At-home oral care is important, too. Be sure to brush at least twice daily, floss, and use an alcohol-free mouthwash.
