If you’re about to enhance your smile’s appearance with teeth-whitening treatment, then our Lighthouse Dental & Orthodontics team would like to tell you what to expect so you are prepared in the dental chair!

When you come into our office to meet with your dentist, Dr. Samuel Richey, you can expect to undergo the following steps:

Step 1: First, your dentist will cover your gums to protect them from the whitening solution. Sometimes the solution can severely irritate them, resulting in red and swollen tissues.

Step 2: Then, Dr. Samuel Richey will paint the whitening solution onto your teeth, covering their entire surfaces.

Step 3: Once the solution completely covers the teeth, your dentist will activate the solution with a special ultraviolet light. This will make the solution penetrate deep into your teeth and break up the stains and discoloration. For the best results possible, your dentist will repeat these three steps three times, making the appointment a total of 45 minutes.

As you can see, teeth whitening is simple, easy, and painless. So, there’s no need to be nervous about your appointment. If you would like to know more about teeth whitening in Riverton, Utah, or if you have any questions, please call our office at 801-871-3499 and talk to a member of our dental team. We are thrilled to help you!
