Nearly every adult who is struggling with stained or discolored teeth can be eligible for dental cosmetic whitening treatment. Of course, our team will need to first evaluate your oral health and situation so that we can minimize any risk of complications. During your initial consultation, we will screen your mouth for any underlying problems such as gum disease, decay, cavities, or infection, which will need to be addressed before moving forward with your treatment.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

At Dalton Hunt Dentistry, we are proud to provide two types of professional teeth whitening solutions to brighten our patients’ smiles. Regardless of which option you choose, you can be sure to enjoy incredible and dazzling results.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

If you would rather brighten your smile in the comfort of your home, we can provide you with customized whitening trays along with professional-grade bleaching gel to get the job done. The bleaching agent is designed to blast away dental stains from the enamel and dentin layers, creating whiter teeth. This process can typically take a couple of weeks to complete, which will involve wearing your trays for a certain amount of time every day. Afterward, you’ll be free to show off your brand-new pearly whites.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

For patients who want quicker results or have an upcoming event that they want to prepare for, in-office teeth whitening can be an incredibly convenient and effective solution. This treatment involves applying a high-grade bleaching agent to your smile before using a UV light to help eliminate discoloration in your smile. The process also only takes about an hour to complete, meaning you’ll be able to walk out of your appointment with a brighter grin that can last several months to a couple of years with proper care!

Tips for Maintaining Your Brighter Smile

While teeth whitening is a reliable way to improve your smile, the results will not be a permanent cosmetic solution. To make the most of your treatment results, you’ll want to implement the following measures:

  • Minimize how often you consume dark-colored foods and drinks
  • Avoid smoking or using other tobacco products that can discolor your teeth
  • Practice good oral hygiene every day such as brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash
  • Visit our team for regular checkups and teeth cleanings
