It’s hard to conceive anything more alluring than a sparkling, white smile. However, our teeth seldom stay as bright as we would like them to without a little professional assistance. Fortunately, that help is available at Sedro-Woolley Family Dental Center. We provide different teeth whitening options that will help you to smile with greater confidence.

What Is Teeth Whitening?

If the teeth are discolored, stained, and dull, it might affect your confidence. You might refrain from smiling or even talking to people because of your teeth imperfections. Thankfully, professional whitening can be of great help when it comes to getting rid of discolorations and stains.  Your teeth could become whiter and brighter, giving you a flawless smile.

Why Is Teeth Whitening Needed?

Teeth whitening may be needed for various reasons. Our teeth can become dull and yellow, affecting the appearance of the smile. Whether you are a chronic smoker, consume teeth-staining beverages, take specific medication, or just beginning to grow older, your teeth may not be as white and brilliant as you want them to be. You could be planning to participate in a social event and want to look your best. Whitening is beneficial when it comes to enhancing your appearance and taking years off your face.

Who Is Eligible for Teeth Whitening Procedures?

Teeth Whitening works best on patients with their original natural teeth. Professional whitening methods will not be able to whiten your dental restorations, which include crowns, veneers, dental bridges, tooth fillings, and bondings.  However, essentially all the people who want to whiten their teeth professionally can take advantage of the procedure.

What Is the Process For Teeth Whitening?

There are two chief categories of teeth whitening solutions available to you.

  • In-Office Teeth Whitening

In-office whitening can be performed in our office to transform your smile quickly. The bleaching solution used is more potent than other whitening options. This is extremely helpful for patients who want speedy and instant but dramatic whitening effects.

  • At-Home Teeth Whitening

Alternatively, you can opt for our take-home whitening process, which could be undertaken in the comforts of your home. It involves using dental trays that we have customized to fit you. These trays have to be filled with a professional-quality whitening gel that works to erase and dissolve stains. The results from this whitening method can take a couple of weeks to become visible.

Whitening is a great way to boost up your smile and improve your overall appearance.
