Teeth Whitening Options for Everyone

To help you get a smile you want to show up, we offer offer several teeth whitening options. For fast and long lasting results, in-office teeth whitening may be the solution you’re looking for. For a more affordable solution, consider custom, take-home bleaching trays to whiten your teeth at home over several treatments. Both options work well for most patients but we find a custom plan for each individual patient works best.

What Causes Stained Teeth?

Tooth discoloration can be caused by a number of things including drinking coffee, tea or wine, smoking, aging, illness, certain medications and even some foods like apples and potatoes can stain your teeth. But as long as your enamel is still healthy and intact, in-office or at-home whitening solutions should be able to restore a more pleasing shade of white. However, if you continue with the same habits that stained your teeth, your teeth can become stained again even after whitening.

What to Do Before You Whiten Your Teeth

To get the best results from whitening your teeth, they should be healthy prior to starting the bleaching process. Untreated cavities can become very painful as a result of the chemicals used to whiten the teeth. Professionally cleaned and healthy teeth will respond best to whitening. Tooth-colored fillings and crowns will not be affected by bleaching and may need another solution if they are darker.

How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?

If you choose a high-quality whitening solution from Dr. Judy, either in the office or at-home, your results should last two years or more. This affect can last even longer if you have touch up whitening done. Also, avoiding food, drinks and habits that stain your teeth can help the results last longer.

What Teeth Whitening Method Is Most Effective?

In-office bleaching are much stronger, than at-home bleaching solutions. Over-the-counter products that you can pick up at the drugstore are cheaper, but are much less effective and take much longer to work. All methods can be effective, however, it is important to have Dr. Judy evaluate you so you can achieve the best results. Dr. Judy recommends Opalescence professional tooth whitening products for the best results.
