If your smile has lost a bit of its luster, the excellent news is that enhancing it with a teeth whitening treatment is easy, quick, and affordable. Bleaching your teeth is one of the least expensive and fastest ways to boost your smile. Here's how teeth whitening in Lincoln, NE works. 

Teeth Whitening Options at Antelope Creek Family Dentistry

Your team at Antelope Creek Family Dentistry makes it simple and convenient to brighten your smile. If you need fast, immediate results, we offer in-office teeth whitening that delivers a brighter smile in as little as an hour. This is ideal for the patient with an upcoming wedding, vacation, or another significant event.

If you have more time on your hands and want to bleach your teeth at home, we also offer customized take-home teeth whitening kits so you can whiten your teeth whenever it's most convenient for you.

Here are the details.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Antelope Creek Family Dentistry uses Opalescence Boost for our in-office bleaching treatments. We'll start by applying a barrier around your gums to protect them and ensure they're not irritated by the whitening gel. Then, we'll use a high-strength whitening gel for 20-minute increments. Depending on your smile goals and level of tooth staining or discoloration, you may have one to three gel applications during your in-office treatment.

When your treatment is finished, you'll leave our Lincoln, NE, dental office with teeth that are six to ten shades lighter than when you started!

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

For take-home teeth whitening, we create custom plastic bleaching trays with impressions we take of your teeth. Custom trays provide better results since they fit snugly against your teeth and prevent the bleaching gel from escaping.

Most patients achieve their desired results by whitening their teeth 30 minutes a day for seven to ten days. As a bonus, you'll have your trays at home if you need to enhance your whitening in the future!
