Teeth Whitening

Your teeth can discolor through the years due to the foods you eat, the beverages you drink (coffee, tea, red wine) or the habits you have such as smoking.   Teeth whitening can brighten your smile, revealing a healthier more appealing appearance.    There are teeth that are discolored for reasons that make whitening not a viable option.  Dr. Rhodes will be happy to evaluate and discuss with you the best approach to acheive the result you are looking for.

Teeth whitening methods

At Timeless Smiles Dental, we believe that the best result in whitening is acheived by patients with the customized take home whitening trays.   These whitening kits are purchased from your doctor for use at home. The strength of the gel used in these kits is lower than that used for in-office bleaching, and thus the gel can be applied for longer periods of time. Usually the trays are worn a couple hours a day or overnight for a few days or weeks depending on the product.
The procedure is simple and requires three visits.  At the first visit, which can be combined with any visit to our office, impressions are taken of your teeth for the making of customized bleaching trays.  This visit is no longer than 15 minutes.  Your trays can be ready within 24 hours.  When your trays are delivered on your second visit, our staff  will assure the fit is comfortable, provide you with your bleaching product and personalized instructions.  At this time, we also take an intra-oral picture of your teeth and determine the orignial shade, prior to whitening.  A two week follow-up appointment is scheduled  to check the progress of your whitening, re-take an intra-oral picture, update the tooth shade and answer any additional questions.
For many patients, whitening is a wonderful gift they give themselves after completing all their restorative procedures.  Your smiles is your calling card, and we at Timeless Smiles Dental believe that it should be healthy AND beautiful.
