What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a treatment where professional-grade gels, treatments, and other whitening agents are used to help lift the color of your teeth multiple shades in just a short amount of time. This fast and easy treatment can help you lift your teeth up to eight shades. These whitening treatments can be customized to best fit what you are trying to accomplish with teeth whitening. Our practice offers both in-office and at-home treatments to best work with your schedule. These results are long-lasting, but you can also receive maintenance treatments to help keep your teeth looking great.

How does teeth whitening work?

The first step to getting professional teeth whitening done is having a consultation with our team so that we can plan the best treatment course to meet as many goals you may have as possible. Our office offers two teeth whitening products: KöR® Whitening and Opalescence™ Boost™ Whitening. These products offer consistently successful results with little dental sensitivity. Both of these systems also offer at-home treatments to be used in coordination with your office treatment to provide brighter, whiter results. Teeth whitening sessions typically take an hour and a half.

What should I know about teeth whitening?

Our products are chosen by us due to their proven track record of patients experiencing no sensitivity at all. Opalescence Boost Whitening is water-based, so sensitivity if any is very minimal. Consistent dental exams and cleanings are an important step in maintaining your teeth whitening results. Immediately following your procedure, there may be some foods or drinks you should avoid. Our talented staff will review things to avoid before and after you treatment, which may include dark drinks like coffee or wine. Before your teeth whitening can begin, you will need to have overall healthy teeth. This means that you will need to treat any dental or gum issues you might have, including:

  • Gum disease
  • Tooth decay
  • Cavities
  • Infections
  • Other harmful diseases and conditions that could affect your dental integrity

If you would like to make touch-ups to your teeth whitening, our office also offers at-home teeth whitening trays so that you can do any minor upkeep in the comfort of your own home.
