Teeth Whitening

Do you wish your teeth were free of coffee stains or a yellowish tint? Having a stained smile may make you feel self-conscious about your smile. When you have white, bright teeth, you can feel more comfortable and confident being yourself and sharing your smile with the world. 

Fortunately, professional teeth whitening can erase the effects of tooth stains and give you a flawless smile. White, radiant teeth will also make you look healthier and more youthful, and you can enjoy newfound confidence in your smile’s appearance.

Reasons for Tooth Discoloration and Staining

Several factors can contribute to tooth stains, discoloration, and yellowing teeth. Certain foods and beverages we consume can change the color of our teeth, such as dark berries, red wine, coffee, and brown carbonated drinks. Over the years, our teeth can look dull and dark if not properly cleaned or maintained with professional teeth whitening. 

Some common reasons why people can have stained or yellow teeth include:

  • Foods and drinks 
  • Poor dental hygiene 
  • Smoking and tobacco use 
  • Genetics 
  • Aging 
  • Medical conditions
  • Certain medications
  • Excessive fluoride use
  • Trauma
  • Metal restorations

If you are unhappy with the color of your teeth, professional teeth whitening may be the cosmetic dental treatment for you. Dynamite Smiles Dentistry offers effective tooth whiteners that are safe for tooth enamel and sensitive teeth. Dr. Saba Heday offers in-office whitening sessions and at-home whitening kits for convenient touch-ups. 

Professional Teeth Whitening vs. Store-Bought Whitening

Over-the-counter teeth whitening kits may seem popular, but they are not nearly as safe or effective as professional teeth whitening. Kits you can buy at the store are one-size-fits-all and can result in splotchy whitening, tooth sensitivity, and gum irritation. Whitening strips and other teeth whitening products may also be too abrasive on the teeth and have unwanted side effects.

Dynamite Smiles Dentistry creates customized treatments for each patient who desires brighter, stain-free teeth. With our professional in-office whitening sessions and at-home kits, you can maintain a flawless, white smile. 

Our Teeth Whitening Treatments 

We tailor each treatment to satisfy your individual needs, and Dr. Heday will determine what type of whitening method is best for you. She typically uses a combination of in-office whitening and take-home whitening to deliver dramatic results. 

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Dr. Heday will choose a safe, professional-grade whitening gel with your whitening goals and level of sensitivity in mind. She applies the gel with custom-made applicator trays, which we design for maximum comfort and gum protection. Your teeth can dramatically lighten by several shades in a single whitening session at Dynamite Smiles Dentistry. 

At-Home Teeth Whitening 

We often prescribe custom at-home whitening kits so patients can maintain their white, blemishless smile. At-home kits allow you to whiten your teeth at your own pace and in the comfort of your home without needing to schedule a dental appointment. The applicator trays in your at-home kit will be customized to fit your teeth. Dr. Heday will give you specific instructions on how to use the whitening kit safely. 

After your whitening treatment, we will schedule a follow-up appointment to check your progress.
