What is Teeth Whitening?

Smiling Made Easier: Experience the Dental Difference with Us!

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure designed to lighten the color of your teeth and remove stains or discoloration. It is a non-invasive and safe way to enhance the appearance of your smile, leaving you with a brighter and more youthful-looking grin. We offer professional teeth whitening services, ensuring optimal results and minimal sensitivity.

What Causes Teeth to Discolor?

Several factors can contribute to tooth discoloration, including:

  • Food and Drinks: Certain foods and beverages, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and berries, contain pigments that can stain the enamel of your teeth over time.
  • Tobacco Use: Smoking or chewing tobacco can cause surface stains on your teeth and contribute to yellowing or discoloration.
  • Poor Oral Hygiene: Inadequate brushing and flossing can lead to the buildup of plaque and tartar, which can cause your teeth to appear dull or discolored.
  • Aging: As we age, the outer layer of enamel on our teeth naturally wears away, revealing the yellowish dentin underneath, which can cause teeth to appear darker or more yellow over time.

Our Teeth Whitening Services

We offer two convenient teeth whitening options to suit your lifestyle and preferences:

  • Take-Home Custom Trays: Our take-home teeth whitening kits include custom-made trays that fit comfortably over your teeth. Simply fill the trays with our professional-grade whitening gel and wear them for a specified amount each day, allowing you to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your home.
  • In-Office Zoom!: For fast and dramatic results, our in-office Zoom! Teeth Whitening treatment can brighten your smile by several shades in just one visit. Using advanced LED technology, Zoom! targets deep stains and discoloration, leaving you with a noticeably whiter and more radiant smile in as little as one hour.

What are the Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening?

Choosing professional teeth whitening at Lake Hickory Dental offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Effective Results: Professional teeth whitening treatments use higher concentrations of whitening agents than over-the-counter products, delivering more effective and long-lasting results.
  • Customized Treatment: Our teeth whitening services ensure optimal results and minimal sensitivity.
  • Safe and Comfortable: With professional supervision, you can undergo teeth whitening safely and comfortably, minimizing the risk of side effects or damage to your teeth and gums.
  • Boosted Confidence: A brighter smile can enhance your confidence and self-esteem, allowing you to smile more freely and feel better about your appearance.
