Teeth Whitening

As part of our cosmetic services and smile makeovers, Dr. Elizabeth Kilpatrick-Fox offers professional teeth whitening services to their patients. Though not as fast as Zoom! Teeth Whitening, it is as effective in helping you regain the beauty of your smile to gain confidence and build stronger relationships.

Advantages of Professional Teeth Whitening

As convenient as purchasing over the counter teeth whitening kits can be, you should know that the American Dental Association (ADA) has deemed these “dangerous” because they are not supervised. Therefore, to ensure your oral health and overall wellbeing, professional teeth whitening is the best option for healthy-looking teeth. Other advantages of getting this cosmetic procedure at the dentist’s office are:

  • Better Looking Smile – Teeth whitening will remove persistent stains and brighten your smile. As a result, you will gain more self-confidence and become less embarrassed about your smile. You will actually begin smiling with an open mouth without having to shield your teeth while laughing or talking.
  • Affordable Makeover – Getting this procedure is one of the simplest and most affordable ways to improve your appearance. It can change your appearance more prominently than a wardrobe makeover. Moreover, as whiter teeth are associated with a healthier lifestyle, you can make better first impressions on others.
  • Youthful Appearance – You can look younger with teeth whitening. After all, the treatment removes the stains accumulating after years of smoking and/or drinking wine, coffee, tea, etc.

The Procedure for Teeth Whitening

First off, Dr. Fox will examine your teeth to learn more about your oral health. At times, patients may have discolored teeth due to the lack of proper dental care, too much fluoride consumption, or certain medications. In those instances, we can recommend other methods to help you get a healthy, white smile.

If you are a candidate for teeth whitening, a dental hygienist will clean your teeth since plaque and tartar should be removed before beginning the process. Next, Dr. Fox will take molds of your teeth so that custom whitening trays can be made for the individual patient. Dr Fox will apply the whitening gel onto your teeth and activate it using a special light. This treatment will take approximately two hours to complete.

If you take proper care of your oral and dental hygiene, the effects of this treatment can last for several years. However, personal behaviors such as smoking, smokeless tobacco, and certain foods can stain or discolor the teeth without proper brushing, flossing, and rinsing.
