Have your teeth lost their natural radiance? It happens to all of us as we age, but you can have a naturally white smile with a teeth whitening session at our dental office. There’s no reason people should be able to guess your age just by looking at your teeth. A more attractive smile will give you a boost of self-confidence and you will radiate health and vitality.

Why Should I See a Dentist for Teeth Whitening?

Unlike products with weak bleaching agents advertised to whiten your teeth at home, dentists use professional grade bleaching agents in a carefully monitored environment. With in-office whitening, you have a pain-free experience. Additionally, in-office teeth whitening offers you immediate results that make a dramatic difference in the color of your teeth.

In-office whitening is ideal for removing yellow or brown stains from tobacco, food and beverages. The bleaching agent will not remove stains deep inside your tooth, such as tetracycline stains and darkening from an injury. Whitening treatments also do not affect porcelain or ceramic crowns or veneers. If you have a tooth stained on the inside, ask our dentist about covering the tooth with a veneer. One darkened tooth will stand out more in a mouth full of bright, radiant teeth and our goal is for you to have the attractive smile you deserve.

When you see a dentist for a teeth whitening treatment, you’ll have an examination first to ensure you will have the results you expect. Call us today to schedule a consultation to learn how we can enhance your smile.

Is Teeth Whitening at Home an Option?

We offer you the option of whitening your teeth at home with a professional-grade bleaching agent. You’ll come in for a consultation and our dentist will determine if you are a good candidate for teeth whitening. If so, our dentist will take an impression of your teeth and supply you with a custom-made whitening tray that resembles a retainer. It will keep the bleaching agent off your gums. Our dentist will supply you with a pre-measured bleaching agent as well. You can whiten your teeth by wearing the tray for an hour a day for two weeks.

What Does Teeth Bleaching Cost?

Factors that affect your teeth whitening cost include the whitening system used, the amount of staining on your teeth, and whether our dentist has to match your existing restorations. Unfortunately, dental insurance will not cover whitening treatments. To learn more about your teeth whitening cost, call our office to request a consultation. Our dentist can provide you with your cost after evaluating your needs.

How Does Professional Teeth Whitening Compare to Whitening Toothpastes and Strips?

Do-it-yourself products cost less than visiting a teeth bleaching dentist, but they are less effective. Whitening toothpastes, strips, pens and whitening tray kits cannot compare to chairside teeth whitening because they contain a weak peroxide solution. If you have very slight yellowing, these products may work for you. People with moderate to severe staining are going to be disappointed. Why waste your money on a variety of teeth whitening products when you can see our teeth bleaching dentist and get real results in about an hour.

What Is the Procedure for a Teeth Bleaching Treatment?

Chairside teeth whitening steps vary depending on the system our dentist uses. The following steps are typical:

  1. You’ll start with an examination by our dentist and a dental teeth cleaning to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth.
  2. Our dentist will take a photo to use as a reference for your starting color. Afterward, you’ll see how many shades whiter your teeth have become.
  3. A cheek retractor goes in your mouth to expose more of your teeth and to keep the bleaching agent off of the insides of your cheeks.
  4. A gel goes on your gums to keep the bleaching agent off of them.
  5. Our dentist oversees coatings of bleaching gel, which are left on for a specified time and then removed. A light may shine of your teeth during this time, depending on the teeth whitening system our dentist uses.
  6. When your teeth have reached their desired shade, our dentist will determine if an at-home treatment is needed to enhance the whiteness.
  7. You’ll learn how to keep your teeth as bright as possible by quitting tobacco use and avoiding foods and beverages that can stain your teeth.

After your whitening session, you teeth will become a shade darker as they rehydrate. Don’t be alarmed if your teeth look too white at first. Your dentist plans for this when deciding on the number of applications you have during your session.
