Bright White Teeth and a Stunning Smile Await You

Even if you brush regularly, years of accumulated staining can leave your teeth less-than-sparkling. Good news – there’s an easy solution. Harmony Family Dentistry offers professional teeth whitening services. Our whitening services are far more effective than the whitening strips available in stores, and it’s easier too, since we take care of the whole process for you.

If you’re ready to revitalize your smile, call us today and schedule a free consultation.

Is Professional Teeth Whitening for You?

With age, teeth tend to fade or yellow. Drinking coffee and red wine, smoking, and even genetic factors are common causes. If you want your brilliant white teeth back, our teeth whitening services might be the perfect option for you. 

This is a safe and highly effective treatment performed in our comfortable Vancouver WA office, but it may not be the right choice for everyone. We don’t recommend professional teeth whitening if you have:

  • Sensitive teeth or gums – Teeth whitening uses a high concentration of hydrogen peroxide, so we recommend alternative treatment if you have sensitive teeth or gums.
  • Crowns or restorative dental procedures – Teeth whitening will not affect these.
  • Intrinsic staining – If discoloration is the result of tooth decay or medication use, teeth whitening will not work. Teeth whitening provides outstanding results for extrinsic (or surface) staining.

How Does Professional Teeth Whitening Work?

  1. We start with a thorough cleaning to remove any lingering plaque and food particles so they do not obstruct the whitening process. We also check for any outstanding dental issues like gum disease or tooth decay which the bleaching process can aggravate. If you have any issues, they should be resolved before doing this cosmetic treatment.
  2. Next, we’ll provide a lip retractor to wear so that your lips don’t touch your teeth. 
  3. We will rub a protective gel along your gums to protect them from the bleaching agents. 
  4. Then we will apply the whitening agent to the teeth directly. This triggers the oxidation process to help strip staining off your teeth. 
  5. Finally, we shine a blue light onto the teeth to enhance the effects of the oxidation. 
  6. This process is repeated a few times in the hour-long session to maximize the whiteness of your teeth.

What Kind of Results Can You Expect from Teeth Whitening?

Your results will be relative to your starting point – this is not like putting dental veneers on your teeth and it’s suddenly completely different. Your teeth should appear between five and 10 shades whiter than before your treatment. If your teeth have significant staining, you may need more than one whitening session to achieve the level of whiteness you want. Yes, you can come back and repeat the process – it is safe to undergo teeth whitening every few months.

After whitening, your teeth may become stained again. Typical results last approximately one year, but you can elect another session to maintain your desired level. 

To ensure that your teeth stay as white as possible:

  • Limit consumption of beverages that stain like red wine, cola, coffee, and tea. 
  • Do not smoke either, since tobacco stains your teeth. 
  • Be steadfast with your brushing and flossing to prevent surface stains from developing on your teeth.
