There are various factors that can dull the color and overall appearance of your teeth. Several foods and drinks are particularly tough on the enamel. As time goes by, our teeth will lose some of their radiance. Teeth whitening in our Tulsa office is the solution that many people turn to address stains and discoloration to help restore beauty and brightness to their smile. Dr. Frank Henrich, dentist in Tulsa, OK at Henrich Dental can help you discover the best solutions for your cosmetic needs and goals.
How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?
The effects will vary from patient to patient. In-office professional teeth whitening can last from a few months to a few years depending on patient maintenance and oral care routine. Daily oral hygiene is very important to help your teeth remain whiter longer. Frequent visits to your dentist for exams and cleanings can help, as well as avoiding foods and drinks that can stain teeth. To extend the life of your treatment, we offer at-home touch-up kits.

Teeth Whitening Treatments
The in-office whitening process takes about an hour or so. A special bleaching agent will be expertly painted onto your teeth. We avoid your gums and the agent won’t harm your enamel. Once this is done, a light is put onto your teeth that activates the bleaching agent in the gel. Your teeth will get multiple shades whiter throughout this process.
At-home whitening kits can enhance your whitening experience. They are customized for your specific needs and mouth concerns. Bleaching trays are fitted to your smile to make sure they don’t irritate the soft tissues of your mouth. Your dentist will give you instructions on how to use them for optimal results.
