Teeth Whitening in Denver
One of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures available is teeth whitening - a quick, easy, and cost-effective way to improve your appearance. Our teeth naturally become darker over time. Anything that would stain a white T-shirt will stain our teeth over time as well. It is a constant process to keep our teeth white.
If a white smile is what you desire, three options exist:
Over-the-counter whitening systems from your local drug or grocery store are somewhat effective as long as the directions are followed closely.
Custom Tray whitening. We can make you a customized, take-home whitening kit consisting of trays and gel. It only takes 45 minutes per night for approximately two weeks to see substantial results. Some smiles may whiten more quickly and some may take a little longer. Every six months you can purchase another tube of whitening gel and keep your teeth the whiteness you desire. If you are interested in this option, please contact one of our offices to schedule a New Patient Comprehensive Visit it includes your comprehensive exam, IO Images, x-rays, VELscope oral cancer scan and cleaning and we will give you this Custom Tray Whitening option FREE! (Dependent upon your gums being healthy and no decay).
In-office teeth whitening can be performed in one visit, usually in about an hour and a half. A peroxide-based gel is applied to the teeth, which penetrates the tooth enamel and whitens deeply-embedded stains. By removing these deep stains, the entire tooth gains a lustrous white appearance. This beautiful and brilliant white color can last years, depending on your dental hygiene routine and the foods you consume. You will need to "touch up" your whitening with custom trays every six months or do in-office whitening again as needed.
