We Are Open – Safety is Our Top Priority!
We’ve reopened in accordance with CDC, O.S.H.A., and State Dental Board guidelines to responsibly resume seeing our patients for regular dental appointments and treatment. 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.
Discolored teeth are a common cosmetic dental concern. Many people are self-conscious of their stained teeth. However, a visit to a teeth bleaching dentist can easily solve this problem. Teeth whitening treatments are a popular and affordable way to immediately brighten up your smile.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening treatments performed by a teeth bleaching dentist work best when a patient has discolored teeth due to the consumption of certain types of foods, drinks, or the use of tobacco products. These activities frequently stain the enamel of the teeth, causing them to become yellowed over time. Due to the highly concentrated bleaching gel used by the dentist, this type of teeth whitening procedure provides the patient with immediate results in a safe and pain-free manner.
If issues like tetracycline stains, severe tooth damage, or severe tooth decay are behind your discoloration issues, then whitening treatments will not work to whiten your teeth. The whitening process also does not work on veneers, crowns, and fillings.
At your first visit with one of our dentists, your teeth will be examined so that we can determine what is causing the discoloration of your teeth. Your dentist will then formulate a detailed treatment plan that will meet all of your teeth whitening needs.
How Can I Whiten My Teeth At Home?
In addition to offering in-office teeth whitening, we are also able to offer you the option to pursue teeth whitening at home. Our take-home professional kits provide you with custom trays and bleaching gel that will help you to lighten your teeth up to six shades over the course of a two-week period.
What Is the Price for Teeth Whitening?
Teeth bleaching cost is a concern for many people. At our office, we always provide our patients with a detailed estimate of the cost of their treatment. Your bill for teeth whitening will be determined by factors like the number of treatments needed, the type of treatments pursued, and whether or not you need any follow-up treatments.
Why Are Professional Whitening Treatments Better Than Teeth Whitening Products You Get At the Store?
Teeth whitening solutions that you can buy at the store may seem like a convenient option, but they rarely work as well as professional whitening treatments. Over-the-counter dental whitening trays, gels, rinses, toothpastes and strips also come with the risk of being used improperly. To ensure that you receive the best whitening treatment possible, contact your dentist.
What Will My Dentist Do During My Teeth Whitening Procedure?
Your teeth whitening procedure will consist of your dentist performing a series of steps that will be based on the type of whitening treatment you decide to utilize. Many treatments follow the same steps. If you would like an example of what to expect, continue reading.
- The patient’s dentist will examine and clean the teeth.
- The dentist will take photos of the teeth.
- A cheek retractor will be placed in the patient’s mouth to expose the visible teeth.

- Many coatings of bleaching gel will be placed on the teeth. The gel will be removed after a predetermined amount of time.
- The dentist may choose to use an intense beam of light to enhance the whitening results.
