Discolored teeth can knock your confidence and leave you finding ways to hide your smile. Most of the time, discoloration does not reflect your oral hygiene habits. Most people experience a degree of discoloration with age or through lifestyle habits such as drinking coffee, smoking, or even taking certain medications. Luckily, thanks to advancements in cosmetic dentistry, we can now brighten your smile by several shades with professional teeth whitening!
Teeth whitening is ideal for a wide range of individuals, but it's especially beneficial for those who:
We are aware that when it comes to cosmetic dentistry, there should never be a cookie-cutter approach for all patients. That's why we offer various whitening options to help you achieve your desired results in a way that fits your lifestyle and budget. Here are your options
On the day of your treatment, we'll apply a desensitizer to the gums to protect them from the whitening product. This will ensure you don't experience any discomfort during the procedure. Once you're prepped, we'll apply the whitening agent to your teeth and leave you relaxing under a special light for around 20 minutes. We'll repeat this process 2 to 3 times, depending on how discolored your teeth are. At the end of the procedure, you can leave our office with a radiant smile, ready to be shown off to the world!
Yes, when performed under the guidance of a professional like Dr. Varkey, it is a safe and effective procedure. We only use tried and tested whitening products with proven efficacy and clear safety records.
The results can last several months but vary based on lifestyle and oral hygiene practices. Brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing at least once daily is important. You can use whitening toothpaste if it is fluoride - our team will happily recommend which brands are best. You should limit staining foods/beverages like coffee and red wine or try brushing your teeth after consuming them to preserve your results.
Some patients may experience temporary sensitivity, which usually subsides shortly after the treatment. To ease sensitivity, you can use toothpaste specially formulated for sensitive teeth for a few days after whitening.
Dr. Varkey recommends at least 6-12 months intervals, depending on your dental health and whitening goals. However, you will need to come in for a maintenance treatment at least once a year if you hope to maintain your results long-term.
It's generally recommended for adults, but teenagers can undergo whitening with parental consent and under professional guidance.
