Brighten Your Smile with Advanced Sapphire Teeth Whitening

If you’re like most people, your teeth are probably not be as bright as you’d like them to be. You might have tried the whitening toothpastes and the in-home whitening kits sold at the local pharmacy, only to see barely noticeable results after weeks of use. Fortunately, you have don’t have to settle for slow whitening methods that produce mediocre results. As a licensed provider of the Sapphire Teeth Whitening System, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry of the Rockies can safely brighten your smile by 8 to 12 shades in just one office visit.

Sapphire Teeth Whitening is a fast, safe and gentle treatment that uses a specially formulated whitening gel and the patented Sapphire Plasma Arc Light to efficiently brighten your teeth. This whitening treatment is the perfect restorative dental solution if:

  • You have discolored and stained teeth
  • You are seeking significant results in a short amount of time
  • You have a busy schedule with no time for multiple office visits
  • You have sensitive teeth and gums

The Restorative Dental Solution for Stubborn Stains and Discolorations

Tooth discoloration can be caused by a variety of factors, which can change the efficacy of most tooth whitening procedures. Usually, teeth stains are caused by a lifetime of consuming stain-prone food and drinks like coffee and tea. Smoking and chewing tobacco are also common culprits, as are certain prescription medication. For others, it’s not a matter of bad habits but a combination of age and genetics.

Sapphire Whitening can effectively lighten even the most persistent stains in less than an hour, while minimizing any irritation to your delicate oral tissues. The Sapphire whitening gel is purposely formulated to prevent tooth sensitivity, which should relieve discomfort during the brightening procedure. In contrast to other professional whitening treatments, Sapphire Whitening is preferred by dentists and patients because it works faster, brightens better, and is less irritating to the teeth and gums.

What Should I Expect from My Teeth Whitening Procedure?

Sapphire Teeth Whitening is a fast and simple procedure, and should take no more than 30 minutes to an hour. Your dentist will perform a preliminary dental exam, to make sure that the treatment will be beneficial for you. You will be given protective eye gear to wear, to shield your eyes during the procedure. Your gums will also be protected, to prevent exposure to the bleaching gel and plasma light. During the treatment, you can continue to relax by taking a nap, watching TV, or listening to music.

Unlike other whitening treatments that only use bleaching chemicals, Sapphire Whitening is able to produce brighter results in a shorter amount of time by combining light therapy with advanced chemistry. The brightening effect is amplified when the Plasma Arc Light is applied to the whitening gel, which triggers a chemical reaction that lightens the tooth almost immediately.

Discomfort after the procedure is usually minimal or nonexistent, though some patients may experience enhanced tooth sensitivity to the cold. These temporary symptoms should last between 1 to 3 days, and can be relieved by over the counter medication. Though Sapphire Whitening is overwhelmingly safe for the vast majority of patients, it is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women, children younger than 13 years of age, and patients taking light sensitive medication. Results can be maintained by following proper dental hygiene and brushing occasionally with Sapphire take-home whitening gel.
