Make Your Smile Look Brighter Than Ever With Teeth Whitening

One of the easiest and most effective ways to transform how your smile looks, is to brighten it. Even if you grew up having naturally whiter teeth, there’s a good chance that time or your favorite foods have caused them to pick up some stain over time.

In fact, one of the first steps to any successful smile makeover is lightening the overall coloration of your teeth, so that new veneers, bonding, or crowns can be made to match your smile’s new hue.

What Causes Teeth Stains?

Whether you realize it or not, your smile is exposed daily to factors that can change the way it looks. Perhaps the most common complaint we receive at Alaska Dental Arts is dissatisfaction with tooth color, with patients experiencing stains, discoloration, dark spots, or darkening. These can be caused by:

  • Age
  • Smoking and tobacco use
  • Fluorosis
  • Poor dental hygiene habits
  • Coffee, wine, tea, and sodas
  • Sugary and acidic foods
  • Certain illnesses and medications

No matter the reason for your stains or discoloration our team is proud to offer a simple and effective treatment known as teeth whitening right here in our office. As long as your teeth and gums are free of disease, you’re a candidate for this cosmetic dental treatment!

Investing in Effective Results

Purchasing teeth whitening kits at the grocery store may seem like the cheaper option, but it could wind up costing you more money. The solutions are far weaker (because prescription strength is only available through your dentist) and thus they take a longer amount of time to produce not as good results.

Instead, investing in a professional whitening treatment can brighten your teeth in half of the time with less product. You’ll find that your results are easier to maintain and that you wind up spending less money out of pocket over time. For most of our Alaska patients, the results are far more dramatic than anything an over the counter product can deliver.

What is Professional Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that can be completed in our office or at home. It works by applying a safe, concentrated whitening gel directly to the surface of your smile. The gel is absorbed deeply into the microscopic pores of your tooth enamel to gently bleach away stains and discoloration.

Two Options to Choose From

Jump start your smile with our in-house treatment, or on your own time from the comfort of your home. When you visit our office for laser whitening, this in-house process can be completed in as little as 45 minutes. Just lay back and we’ll do the rest. Or, use our professional teeth whitening at home and our dentist will make you custom plastic trays to be filled with gel and worn snugly over your teeth. This puts the power in your hands, with results usually occurring within a few weeks. You can use your trays to touch up results after each of your six month cleanings to keep your teeth white for life.
