How white is white?
In clinical studies, Rembrandt has been able to achieve 9+ shades whiter on average. Your results of course will vary as your starting point maybe different and everyone’s teeth respond a little differently, but in virtually all cases, the results are dramatic. Ultimately, the goal will be to achieve your optimum, natural whiteness. During your first consultation for tooth whitening, your dentist will go over what you personally can expect for your individual situation.
Severe discoloration can be treated and yield good results in many instances. However, the more difficult cases can sometimes require a more lengthy treatment than the standard one-hour treatment. Some enhanced results may also be achieved when whitening materials are additionally used at home over a week or so. An important note – The degree of whiteness will vary from patient to patient, depending on the structure of the teeth, the brand of material that is used, the duration of time that the system is used and on the way that the material or system is administered by your dentist.
How long do the results last?
Rembrandt:The long-term results depend primarily on the individual. Certain habits, such as the use of tobacco products, drinking a lot of coffee, tea, dark soft drinks, and infrequent visits to the dentist for regular cleanings, etc., can work against the results. Regular professional care will help maintain the Rembrandt up to 2 years. Some people may prefer to do the Rembrandt whitening treatment more frequently.

This will vary from individual to individual.
How’s it done?
Rembrandt: Your dentist will first examine your teeth and gums for good oral health. Next as you relax in the chair, a proprietary whitening gel is applied to your teeth and the revolutionary, proprietary Rembrandt light will be positioned over your teeth to activate the gel. As you watch TV, listen to music or nap, your teeth will lighten to their optimum, natural whiteness in about an hour. At home whitening: An impression is taken of your upper and lower dental arches and custom fitted clear trays are fabricated. These trays will closely conform to your teeth and allow a minimum amount of material to come in contact with your teeth. Your dentist or dental hygienist will provide an overview of the quick and easy procedure and you’re on your way to brightening your Smile! In office procedures will generally yield results within 30 minutes with most patients. Using a take home kit will generally improve the results and again these results will vary from patient to patient. Follow-up visits beginning the day after first usage and continuing onto the first and second week and third weeks may be suggested and comparisons and evaluations of your tooth shade will be done at that time.
Will it be uncomfortable?
The majority of our patients experience no pain or sensitivity after the Rembrandt Professional Teeth Whitening treatment. A very small percentage of patients may experience a minor dull “ache” following the procedure. Taking an over-the-counter analgesic like Tylenol™ or aspirin almost always resolves the feeling. In moderate cases, a clear dentist dispensed fluoride rinse my help as well. It is best to avoid very hot or very cold drinks for the first 24 hours if there is any tooth sensitivity.
