VENUS WHITE is a chairside bleaching process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin. The bleaching agents are administered by our staff in several stages in the course of just over an hour.
There are many causes. The most common include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea or tobacco. Our teeth accumulate stains over time and any food or beverage that would stain a white shirt will stain our teeth.
Just about anyone can benefit from tooth whitening. However, treatment may not be as effective for some as it is for others. With an oral exam, Dr. Browning can determine if you are a candidate for this procedure, including a shade assessment.
Absolutely! A bright, beautiful smile can make a big difference. The Venus Whitening System makes it easier and faster than ever before.
Yes, research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, many dentists consider whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. As with any tooth whitening product, Venus White is not recommended for children under 13 years of age and pregnant or lactating women.
By following some simple post whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before. We recommend flossing, brushing twice daily, and touch-ups with Venus take-home gel. These are professionally formulated products designed specifically to keep your teeth their brightest. They are only available through our office or you can order online through our Venus Smile Store.
Yes! Consulting Dr. Browning is always the first step to whitening your teeth safely. Over-the-counter tooth whitening strips, brush-on gels and toothpastes take weeks or months to whiten your teeth just a few shades. Venus is clinically proven to whiten your teeth up to eight shades* in an hour.
Venus White whitening gel's active ingredient is Carbamide Peroxide. The two components are mixed together and activated at chairside. This causes oxygen to be realeased. The oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching any colored substance while keeping the structure of the tooth unchanged.
No. During the procedure, patients can actually watch television or listen to music. Many fall asleep.
Some people experience temporary increased tooth sensitivity to cold during treatment. These symptoms disappear within 1-3 days after treatment.
The entire procedure takes just 90 mins. The procedure begins with a preparation period followed by one hour of bleaching. A fluoride treatment completes the procedure (we recommend a dental cleaning prior to the actual Venus White session).
