Teeth Whitening Services in Johns Creek & Alpharetta
Are you noticing that your teeth look yellowish and stained? Are you unable to "brush away the gray" from your tooth enamel? You may be a candidate for teeth whitening. This safe and affordable cosmetic dental treatment maybe used to remove years of staining from coffee, tea, tobacco products and discolorations related to medications so you can enjoy a brighter smile.
Professional Teeth Whitening ProductsProfessional teeth whitening products are available in 2 forms: in-office power whitening and custom take-home tray whitening kits. Both are equally effective; in-office power whitening provides immediate results and home teeth whitening takes about 2 weeks of continual use to see a dramatic difference.
To schedule an in-office whitening treatment in our Johns Creek dental practice, we ask that you plan to spend about an hour with us. After the dentist checks your teeth to make sure there are no signs of disease or infection, we will apply the whitening treatment to lift away old stains and make your teeth several shades lighter right away.
Our professional whitening services include an ingredient to help reduce post-whitening sensitivity. We will also provide you with a touch-up kit to use at home when you notice any new staining.
- If you prefer to whiten at home… After your dental examination, we will take impressions of your teeth to make custom whitening trays. These are worn to apply a small amount of whitening gel for 20-30 minutes a day to gradually whiten your teeth.
Sometimes deeply stained teeth (such as with certain medications) will require multiple whitening treatments, or, cosmetic dental procedures such as porcelain veneers may be the right solution for you. Your dentist will advise you on the recommended approach to help you have a beautiful, bright smile.
An Important Note: It is important to always obtain teeth whitening services from a dentist; over-the-counter products are not the same strength as those that can be provided by a dentist, making them less predictable and often ineffective.
