Teeth Whitening Treatment in Atlanta, GA

Teeth whitening is a simple, effective cosmetic dental treatment that we offer to enhance your smile in as little as one treatment. Our professional teeth whitening treatments utilize a powerful yet safe whitening gel applied to your teeth’ surface.

This gel lightens the appearance of stains, discoloration, and yellowing on the tooth enamel. Teeth whitening is often available in both in-office and take-home systems. Professional teeth whitening can give you a noticeably whiter smile that will boost your self-esteem and help you smile with pride.

What Causes Staining?

If you have ever wished that your smile was whiter and brighter, teeth whitening might be right for you. Through professional teeth whitening, we can lighten staining and discoloration caused by various factors, such as:

  • The natural aging process
  • Poor dental hygiene habits
  • Consumption of certain drinks and foods, including tea, wine, coffee and soda
  • Smoking and other forms of tobacco use
  • Illness
  • Certain medications
  • Fluorosis

Our dentist will work with you to determine the right treatment type and length to achieve the smile aesthetic you desire. To learn more about professional teeth whitening and to set up your consultation at our office, please call us today.

How to Maintain Teeth Whitening Results

To maintain the results of teeth whitening and prolong the brightness of your smile, it is crucial to adopt good oral hygiene practices and make lifestyle choices that support dental health. 

First, you should continue to brush your teeth at least twice a day with a whitening toothpaste that contains fluoride. This helps to remove surface stains and prevent the buildup of plaque and tartar, which can dull the appearance of your teeth. 

Also, flossing daily is equally as important. This is because it removes plaque and food particles from between the teeth and along the gum line, where toothbrushes cannot reach. You may also consider incorporating a whitening mouthwash into your routine. 

Furthermore, you need to avoid foods and drinks that are known to stain teeth, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and dark-colored berries. If you do consume these items, rinse your mouth with water afterward. Or you can brush your teeth if possible. Similarly, you must refrain from smoking or using tobacco products. This is because they can cause yellowing and staining of the teeth. 

Regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings are crucial for a white smile. Your dentist can monitor the health of your teeth and gums. They can also remove surface stains and provide touch-up treatments as needed to keep your smile looking bright and radiant.
