Teeth Whitening

Is tooth staining and discoloration preventing you from smiling with confidence?

Even people who are conscientious about oral health care and hygiene will gradually notice over the years that their smile is losing its youthful luster. In some ways, this is inevitable because of the lifestyle choices we make such as using tobacco or choosing staining foods and drinks.

At the office of Andrew Cole DDS, we offer teeth whitening options designed with your busy lifestyle in mind. There are numerous professional products to choose from, and we have selected those that deliver the fastest, most consistent results for our patients.

Benefits of Professional Whitening

Take a walk down the dental care aisle of your local supermarket, and you will be overwhelmed by the sheer number of whitening products that claim to produce amazing results. Unfortunately, the reality is that you can spend a lot of time and money only to be disappointed by less than stunning results.

But the professional-strength whitening products we use quickly and safely lift discoloration and stubborn stains from your teeth. Depending on the whitening method you choose, you can see dramatic results in as little as an hour with an in-office treatment.

Opalescence Whitening Products

A common complaint about teeth whitening has always been tooth sensitivity. For this reason, we have chosen Opalescence products because they comfortably deliver stunning results.

The secret is the addition of potassium nitrate and fluoride. Potassium nitrate helps calm nerves in your tooth that cause discomfort, and fluoride helps provide relief from sensitivity because it increases the hardness of dental enamel.

Customized Teeth Whitening Options

We have two options for your convenience:

  • In-office whitening is perfect if you have a deadline coming up for a special event like a wedding or reunion. If you want to see fast results, in-office whitening is an excellent choice because treatment takes only an hour and brightens your smile by as much as six shades.
  • Professional take-home kits are vastly superior to the store-bought versions for several reasons. First, your dentist oversees the procedure which allows us to offer prescription-strength whitening gel. And instead of generic one-size-fits-all trays, teeth whitening at our Chehalis dental office uses customized trays made using impressions of your teeth. The result is trays that conform closely to the contours of your teeth and reduce sensitivity because it keeps the gel on your teeth and away from your gums.

We will instruct you to wear the trays every day for about an hour over a two-week period. Though the at-home process takes a little longer, you can expect to see a brightening of about six shades at the end of the two weeks.
