Teeth Whitening

Do you get nervous talking to people because your teeth aren’t as white as they could be? We want our patients to look their best, which is why we offer professional teeth whitening treatments for you and your family.

Over time, teeth may become stained or yellowed for many different reasons. Sometimes coffee, wine, and other highly pigmented foods cause staining. Tobacco also contributes to yellowing teeth. Other causes include aging, trauma, and certain medications.

Many people have tried retail whitening products, like strips or gels. These techniques might cause tooth sensitivity, and they might only lighten your teeth a shade or two. In-office whitening is usually more effective in producing the stunning whiteness people want.

What is the Teeth Whitening Process?

At White Center Smiles, the teeth whitening process is easy. Our whiteners contain one of two bleaches, hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. The bleach breaks up the stains in your teeth and leaves you with a brighter, whiter smile. The process is done in one appointment, leaving you free to return to your normal schedule.

Another option is to order a take-home professional-grade whitening kit. When you come into our office to order a kit, the dentist will check the size of your mouth so you can get a tray made just for you. After your tray arrives, the dentist will give you specific instructions on how to use your whitening kit from the comfort of your own home.

Whitening does not work on all teeth. If you have periodontitis the chemicals are too harsh and can complicate gum disease. Sometimes fillings in the front teeth won’t whiten, making them stand out. Fortunately, other options for creating a beautifully white smile exist. For example, Dr. Osundeko might recommend veneers instead, in certain situations.

Preventing Stains After Whitening

To keep up your glowing smile after a teeth whitening, use a stain-removing toothpaste, especially after eating or drinking darkly pigmented foods. Try to avoid the things that cause stains on your teeth. Most importantly, brush and floss daily.

Do you want to put this one worry behind you? You can have whiter teeth in one day, and a stunning new smile to show off wherever you go. Call our office today!
