What Is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening, also called teeth bleaching, is a dental treatment that lifts surface stains from your teeth to reveal a brighter smile. Many of the foods we enjoy are highly pigmented and leave behind stains over time that even a robust daily oral hygiene routine can't remove. We offer professional in-office and take-home whitening treatments to visibly freshen your smile. While teeth whitening is considered a cosmetic dental treatment because it addresses an aesthetic issue, it often results in a boost in your confidence and overall quality of life.

Our Effective Teeth Whitening Treatments

Our friendly team will take the time to talk with you about our teeth whitening treatment options and what results you can expect. If you want to see results in a single visit, we suggest our in-house whitening option. We use Philips Zoom to noticeably brighten your smile, and we include take-home custom trays and brightening gel so you can perform touch-ups as needed. Our dentist offers special pricing on additional whiting gel for those who faithfully maintain their biannual preventive dental appointments.

For those who have a busy schedule, we offer Philips Zoom Day White take-home kits. This option is more powerful and effective than over-the-counter options, and it's safe for your teeth. We will provide helpful instructions and tips so you can brighten your smile confidently in the comfort of your own home.

How Can I Maintain My Brighter Smile?

It's natural to want to keep your smile sparkling for as long as possible. Regardless of whether you choose our in-house brightening treatment or our at-home whitening kits, there are a few things you can do to make your smile stay whiter longer.

Highly pigmented foods like tomato sauce, curry, and berries leave stains on your teeth. If you avoid these foods, then your teeth will remain brighter longer. When you eat foods that are dark, you can swish water in your mouth or brush your teeth immediately after to help prevent staining. Dark drinks like tea, coffee, and red wines also leave stubborn stains on your teeth. You can protect your fresh smile by using a straw when you enjoy dark beverages. Tobacco is a significant factor in discoloring your teeth. If you avoid smoking and other tobacco products, then you can keep your smile shining longer.

Teeth Bleaching FAQs

Whether you're protecting or improving the appearance of your smile, it's normal to have questions about the services available. Our team encourages you to share your questions and concerns, and we are happy to provide the answers and information you need to feel confident in your treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about teeth whitening in Independence.

How long does teeth whitening last?
Professional teeth whitening removes years of accumulated stains from your teeth. That is why most people brighten their smiles once every 12-16 months.

Does teeth bleaching hurt?
Our professional brightening gel is safe for your teeth. Some people do experience a slight sensitivity in their teeth or gums for a day or two after treatment, but the sensitivity goes away.

Can teeth whitening remove all stains?
No. Teeth whitening removes surface stains but not discoloration below the surface. If your teeth have internal discoloration due to age, genetics, or certain medication, then a brightening gel won't alter those stains. For those issues, the dentist may discuss alternative solutions such as porcelain veneers or crowns.
