Your dental health is important, and our patients’ safety is our top priority. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern. We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation and all CDC guidelines very closely.
If you have discolored teeth, you can receive whitening treatments from a teeth bleaching dentist to enhance the beauty of your smile. Professional whitening is a quick, affordable treatment that can whiten your teeth by several shades.
What Are the Benefits of In-Office Teeth Whitening?
In-office whitening offers many benefits compared to do-it-yourself teeth whitening. Professional whitening in our office gives you the peace of mind and comfort of knowing that our experienced dentists closely monitor your safety. Unlike whitening products purchased over-the-counter, we can have your teeth looking whiter and brighter after just one visit, and the results are much longer lasting. After thoroughly examining your teeth, our dentists will design a custom teeth whitening plan to ensure your satisfaction.
Professional whitening treatments are the most effective for patients who have tooth discoloration and staining from smoking or from consuming certain foods and beverages. Some forms of tooth discoloration won’t respond to professional whitening, such as staining from tetracycline and discoloration deeper within the tooth caused by defective fillings or decay. In addition, restoration materials, including fillings, veneers, and crowns, do not respond to teeth whitening.
How Does Teeth Whitening at Home Work?
With our take-home whitening kits, it’s possible to receive professional results at a time that’s most convenient for you. Impressions of your teeth are taken to create a customized whitening tray, which is used with teeth whitening gel. Your teeth can become several shades whiter by wearing your whitening trays for about an hour a day for two weeks.
What Does Teeth Whitening Cost?
The severity of your tooth discoloration, the type of whitening system used, and how many whitening treatments you need can affect the total cost of teeth whitening. Schedule an appointment with our dentists for more information about teeth bleaching cost.
Which Teeth Whitening Products Are Available?
Compared to do-it-yourself whitening products, our professional teeth whitening gel is a quick, painless procedure to remove stains and whiten your smile. Your options for over-the-counter teeth whitening products include toothpaste, dental whitening trays, rinses, and strips, but it may take months before you see any noticeable improvement, and if these products are used incorrectly, you can experience gum irritation and uneven results. For reliable results in a carefully controlled setting, we recommend receiving treatment from an experienced teeth bleaching dentist.
