Why Should I Choose Professional Teeth Whitening?

If you would like a substantial increase in the whiteness of your teeth, dental whitening can produce dramatic results in your teeth if they are stained from smoking or drinking coffee, tea or other dark beverages. Teeth whitening safely bleaches the enamel on your teeth; however, it will not work on intrinsic stains, such as discoloration from an injury, decay or a defective filling. Talk to our dentist about your options for covering a discolored tooth.

If you have veneers, white fillings or crowns, the bleaching gel will not affect their color. If you are interested in teeth whitening, contact our office to request a consultation. A teeth bleaching dentist will let you know what to expect from the treatment.

Can I Get Teeth Whitening Products from a Dentist to Use at Home?

A dentist can create a kit for you with a customized tray and dental grade bleaching gel that you can use for an hour a day for about two weeks, or as directed. You will see a significant difference in the brightness of your teeth.

What is the Typical Teeth Bleaching Cost?

Your cost depends on the number of treatments that you will need to achieve your desired whiteness. Our professional whitening dentist may also send you home with a tray and whitening gel to help maintain the results for longer. The price also depends on whether you have any restorations that need to be adjusted in color. If you call our office and ask for a consultation, our dentist can determine your teeth whitening cost after assessing your needs.

Can I Get the Same Teeth Whitening Results Without Going to a Dentist?

The teeth whitening at home products sold in drug stores can lighten your teeth by one or two shades in a few weeks, while an in-office teeth whitening treatment can lighten your teeth by seven or more shades in one day. If you are whitening your teeth for an upcoming event or job interview, don’t count on drug store teeth whitening toothpastes to give you noticeable results.

How Does Chairside Teeth Whitening Work?

In-office teeth whitening generally takes an hour to an hour and a half to have completed. While there are various teeth whitening systems our dentist may employ, the basic steps include:

  • An examination
  • A dental teeth cleaning treatment
  • A before photo
  • A cheek retractor goes in your mouth to expose your teeth and protect your cheeks
  • Protective gel or a rubber dam protects your gums
  • The teeth bleaching dentist applies the bleaching gel
  • Some teeth whitening systems use a bright light
  • After a predetermined amount of time, the gel is removed
  • You and your dentist will evaluate the results
