Everyone wants a bright, white smile. Unfortunately, what we eat and drink and our genetics can make our teeth look dull and discolored. Teeth whitening is a convenient cosmetic dentistry treatment for brightening the appearance of your smile.
Meadows Dental Group offers both in-office and professional-grade whitening treatments for our patients. Please call 303-790-2323 for more information or to schedule an appointment. Our cosmetic dentists serve patients in Lone Tree, Highlands Ranch, Centennial and nearby areas of Colorado.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening at our Lone Tree office takes less than an hour. It is fast, effective and performed by an experienced professional, which gives us the ability to ensure your comfort and safety.
During a tooth whitening session, one of our cosmetic dentists will apply the whitening gel to your teeth and activate it with a special light. The whitening gel contains hydrogen peroxide, which penetrates the enamel on your teeth and breaks apart stubborn stains.
Meadows Dental Group performs in-office whitening with the Zoom! 2 system. With the proven efficacy of this treatment and our dentists’ experience, patients may enjoy a smile that is up to 8 shades brighter after whitening.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
For patients who prefer to whiten their teeth at their own pace, our cosmetic dentists offer Colgate Optic White. This professional-grade take-home kit is perfect for busy patients who want a brighter smile but can’t make it into the office for touch-ups.
Professional at-home whitening is not the same as the over-the-counter products you see at the drug store. Benefits of seeing our dentists about take-home teeth whitening include:
- You will receive a custom-made mouthpiece that fits comfortably and minimizes the risk of discomfort to your gums
- Wear for just 30 minutes once a day
- Results are visible after only a few uses, with best results appearing in less than 2 weeks
- Contains potassium nitrate, which reduces tooth sensitivity
- Strength of whitening is higher than OTC products, making Colgate Optic White an effective at-home whitening option
Our dentists will discuss which whitening treatment is best for your specific needs and goals. We are committed to your comfort, safety and achieving your best smile.
Is Teeth Whitening Right for Me?
Patients with sensitive teeth and gums or chronic stains that don’t respond to whitening treatment might benefit from alternatives like porcelain veneers. Before undergoing cosmetic treatment, it’s important to be free of cavities, gum disease and other oral health issues.
If you are considering multiple cosmetic treatments as part of a smile makeover, it’s best to do teeth whitening before veneers or other restorations are placed. Your whitened teeth will create a baseline shade that our dentists and lab will reference to create materials to improve your smile.
If you have sensitivity issues or get nervous sitting in the dentist chair, Meadows Dental Group provides sedation dentistry to help you relax. Teeth whitening is a fast, stress-free appointment, during which you can sit back, watch our ceiling-mounted TVs and just unwind.
