What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a procedure for removing stains and discoloration from the teeth. Over time your tooth enamel dulls and may develop a yellow or brown tint. This can happen due to age as well as the foods and beverages we consume. To give our patients the opportunity to brighten their smile, we provide professional teeth whitening treatment that gives you dramatic results in a short period of time.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening treatments offer many benefits:

  • Effective. Professional whitening products offer more dramatic results than over the counter products.
  • Safe. Professional grade whitening treatments contain an active ingredient that is safe as well as effective, preventing damage to your enamel.
  • Lasting results. Your teeth will stay whiter longer after professional whitening treatments. Periodic touch-ups at home can help maintain your results.
  • Affordable. Although over the counter products tend to cost less, professional products give you longer lasting results so you don’t have to keep buying more of the same product.
  • Fast. You’ll get faster results from professional treatment than from over the counter products. In-office whitening requires just one appointment to give you a noticeably whiter smile.

Types of Teeth Whitening

We offer two different types of teeth whitening:

  • ZOOM! in-office whitening. In just one appointment, ZOOM! In-office whitening treatment can give you the results you’re looking for. We apply the whitening agent to your teeth ourselves so you can trust that it is done right.
  • Opalescence take-home trays. We also offer Opalescence take-home whitening treatment for your convenience. We’ll create your custom tray for you to use at home when you apply the whitening agent. In just a week or two you’ll have a noticeably brighter smile.

Are You a Good Candidate for Whitening?

Do your teeth seem dull or discolored lately? If your teeth are healthy but don’t look their best, professional teeth whitening provides a safe and effective solution. We recommend teeth whitening for patients who have good dental health because if your teeth need restoration, those procedures should be taken care of first. Once your teeth are fully restored, whitening treatment can be applied. It is important to note that teeth whitening only works on natural enamel, meaning it doesn’t work on crowns, veneers, or fillings.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will teeth whitening make my teeth sensitive?
Professional teeth whitening contains an agent that is effective but gentle, meaning it won’t damage your tooth enamel. Some patients experience mild sensitivity following treatment. If you do, we recommend using toothpaste for sensitive teeth. Sensitivity should subside a few weeks after treatment.
How long do teeth whitening results last?
On average, the results from in-office treatment last anywhere from 1-3 years. Take-home treatments last anywhere from 9 months to a year or more. You can keep your teeth looking whiter longer with periodic touch-ups.
Will teeth whitening irritate my gums?
During in-office treatment a protective gel or a rubber shield is applied to your gums to protect them from potential irritation from the whitening agent. The whitening agent in take-home treatments is milder and your custom trays make it easy to apply it to the teeth and avoid the gums.
Does dental insurance cover teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening is considered to be a cosmetic procedure, so insurance does not cover it. If cost is a concern, there are financing and payment options to make it more affordable.
How can I help my results last longer?
You can keep your teeth looking white by practicing good oral hygiene habits, going to the dentist for regular dental cleanings, and avoiding common teeth staining foods and beverages, such as red wine, coffee, tea, tomato sauce, and dark berries.
