Everyone wants a bright, sparkling smile. But over time, teeth can become dull and discolored from foods, drinks, medications, aging, and more. Fortunately, Roots & Crown microDentistry’ professional teeth whitening options are a quick and easy way to get the sparkling smile you want within a timeframe and budget that work for you.

Aesthetic dentistry is considered an integral part of restorative dentistry due to the increasing demand from patients for such type of treatment for a healthy and attractive smile. Tooth discoloration is becoming a greater concern as more emphasis is placed on esthetics. With the growing awareness of esthetic options, there is greater demand for solutions to such unsightly problems as food staining, fluorosis, and tetracycline staining. Tooth bleaching (tooth whitening) has become increasingly popular in the last 15 years because of the introduction of simple, conservative, and effective ways for treating stained and/or discolored teeth.1

Bleaching systems have been received by the public as a more conservative and economical method of improving the appearance of the dentition. Bleaching is one of the corrective measures used to treat discolored teeth. It can be performed internally on non-vital teeth or externally on vital teeth. The term in-office tooth bleaching refers to tooth whitening procedures that are completed in a dental office under the close supervision of a dentist. In-office bleaching is done by applying a concentrated bleaching agent, typically a gel, to the affected teeth for several minutes. The application can be repeated a few times at the same visit, and several visits are usually required to achieve the desired result, depending on the nature and severity of the discoloration

We at Roots and Crown microDENTISTry provide In-Office teeth whitening with the latest techniques and bleaching kits. We take care of the post-operative sensitivity caused by the teeth whitening systems. We are using teeth whitening kits that do not or cause little sensitivity post-operatively.

The results using these In-office teeth whitening techniques are faster and more predictable. In one visit only 2 or 3 shades lighter can be achieved when opting for teeth whitening at Roots and Crown microDENTISTry.

How much does teeth whitening cost?

The cost of teeth whitening depends on the treatment you choose, your unique needs, and how deep your tooth stains are. We offer a variety of financial options to help you get a brighter smile without breaking the bank. Our team will work with you to choose a whitening option that’s right for your smile and your budget.

Is teeth whitening permanent?

Professional teeth whitening can last long if you properly care for your teeth after your treatment. Avoiding foods, drinks, and other factors that can stain your teeth and practicing good dental habits can help you enjoy your whitening results longer!

Is teeth whitening safe?

Professional teeth whitening treatments are safe. Some patients may experience slight tooth and gum sensitivity from the bleaching gel. This sensitivity is temporary and should reside shortly after your treatment.

Is professional teeth whitening more effective than over-the-counter teeth whitening products?

Over-the-counter teeth whitening methods like whitening strips and trays vary in effectiveness, safety and abrasiveness. Professional whitening treatments reliably provide comprehensive -both intrinsic and extrinsic- whitening; resulting in safer, better and longer-lasting results.

What foods or drinks can darken my teeth?

Foods like tomato sauce, grapes, blueberries, and balsamic vinegar are very acidic which can leave your teeth more vulnerable to stains. Beverages like coffee, dark teas, and sodas can also stain your teeth. Avoiding or limiting these foods can help your teeth whitening results last longer.

Will teeth whitening effect my crowns or fillings?

The teeth whitening methods that we use are not harmful to other cosmetic enhancements or restorations, but if you have questions about your specific crowns, fillings, or veneers our team is more than happy to answer them!
