Teeth Whitening for Your Dream Smile
A smile has many meanings. For Estee Lauder “beauty, health, and happiness reside in your smile.” For Yves Saint-Laurent “a smile is the most important thing you wear.” For TLC Dental Group, the home of “Gentle Dentistry,” professional teeth whitening is essential for our celebrated “Dream Smiles.” Unlike drugstore dental whitening our direct and indirect teeth whitening methods are personalized for optimum protection and brightness. Indeed, patients call our professional tooth whitening “dental magic” for safely, comfortably, and quickly transforming stained and discolored teeth into a dazzling smile.

Safe Teeth Whitening Procedure
TLC professional tooth whitening is either directly supervised with the Polus Whitening Accelerator or indirectly supervised with custom-fitted teeth whitening trays. In both approaches the first step is a thorough examination of your teeth and gums to determine their suitability for tooth whitening and an appropriate method for treating surface (extrinsic) and interior (intrinsic) teeth stains. Our careful teeth whitening procedure assures your dental health and safety.
Teeth Whitening with the Polus Whitening Accelerator
If the dental examination is favorable for teeth whitening, we roll out the Polus Teeth Whitening Accelerator by Beyond Dental, the ultimate in tooth whitening technology. Its distinctive LightBridge system combines halogen and LED light sources for superior teeth whitening power while advanced filtration ensures your safety by removing all harmful heat and ultraviolet output. Three flexible settings tailor the treatment to your tooth sensitivity level and a detachable LED curing light enables spot whitening of a single tooth.
A Polus Teeth Whitening Treatment consists of three safe and successive 10 minute sessions. It begins with a hygienic cleaning and polishing of your teeth. This is followed by setting the Polus for your tooth sensitivity level, securing your gum and lip tissue with a protective gel, and then applying a specially formulated whitening gel to your teeth that is activated by the Polus LightBridge system. After each of the first two sessions we remove and then reapply the tooth whitening gel. We monitor your three 10 minute sessions while you relax and watch a selection of your choice on a Panasonic HDTV while your teeth stains and discoloration dissolve into a “Dream Smile”.
Custom-Fitted Tray Activated Dental Whitening
If the dental examination is favorable for teeth whitening and you prefer indirectly supervised tooth whitening, we begin with a hygienic cleaning and polishing of your teeth. This is followed by taking a detailed impression of your teeth to create individualized, custom-fitted trays for your upper and lower teeth. We then give you the personalized trays, properly formulated whitening gel, and detailed teeth whitening treatment instructions for two hour daily or nightly applications during a period of about two weeks. At the end of this period, you will have a bright and shining smile.
TLC Teeth Whitening vs. Drugstore Whitening
Drugstore and supermarket shelves hold an array of tooth whitening products in the form of toothpastes, tooth whitening strips, tooth whitening pens, dental rinses, and tooth whitening kits. They far surpass us in marketing. We far surpass them in bright and healthy smiles.
- 90% of TLC Dental Group teeth whitening procedures are successful. Drugstore tooth whitening success is questionable.
- TLC Dental Group carefully determines the optimum tooth whitening gel calibration, ranging from 20% to 45%, for each patient. Drugstore tooth whitening gel is a one-size-fits-all 3%.
- TLC Dental Group tooth whitening can lighten teeth by 3 to 8 shades; drugstore tooth whitening by 1 shade.
- The results of one 30 minute TLC Polus teeth whitening treatment far surpass those of drugstore teeth whitening products lasting weeks or months.
- TLC Dental Group tooth whitening will not jeopardize your health. Our thorough dental exam disqualifies from treatment those patients whose health would be at risk including patients with tooth cavities, cracked dental fillings, unduly thin tooth enamel, active gum disease, exposed dental roots, allergy to peroxide, and patients who are under suitable age, pregnant or lactating. Drugstore teeth whitening products do not examine you for these risks and can be harmful to your health.
- We custom fit your teeth whitening trays or mouthpiece to maximize tooth whitening gel exposure to your teeth and minimize any exposure to your gums and soft tissue. Drugstores offer ill-fitting, “one-size fits all” tooth whitening trays that allow bleaching gel to seep into and inflame dental gums and soft tissue.
In sum, TLC Dental Group professional teeth whitening gives you a far more dazzling and healthy smile than drugstore tooth whitening. And your stunning TLC smile is achieved in far less time than your token drugstore smile.
