Teeth Whitening

Do you find yourself avoiding family photos? Has your smile lost a bit of its luster?

It’s natural for teeth to discolor over time, and perhaps you’re just in need of a quick boost. Whitening your teeth is a fast and cost effective way to do this, and Appleton Dental Care can help!

Why Are My Teeth Discolored?

Many different factors play into your teeth losing their natural whiteness, including:

  • Certain medications, which cause staining
  • Lifestyle choices, such as tobacco use
  • Beverages such as coffee, tea, red wine, and colas
  • Certain foods such as berries, tomatoes or red sauce, soy sauce, and curries

Unfortunately, it’s also natural for your teeth to discolor as you age, so even if you’re careful about your lifestyle choices, you’re still likely to notice a change in the brightness of your smile. The good new is that we can help you reclaim and maintain your bright and beautiful smile.

Customized Take-Home Whitening

At Appleton Dental Care, we offer customized take-home whitening trays. This gives you the freedom to whiten your teeth at your leisure, based on your own schedule. You’ll also be able to update whenever you like.

We start by creating plastic whitening trays based on impressions we take of your teeth. These trays are designed to fit snug and protect your gums and soft tissues from excess whitening gel. Our doctors will determine which strength whitening gel is right for your needs, and we’ll teach you how to apply it correctly to your trays.

We recommend that most patients whiten for two weeks initially in order to achieve their desired results, and then you’ll be able to purchase additional gel from our office to update anytime you like. Patients love their amazing results and the freedom they have to whiten when it’s convenient for them.

Why Should I Choose Professional Whitening?

It may seem more convenient or cost effective to purchase your whitening products at your local drug store; however, there a few benefits that professional whitening offers that over-the-counter products cannot.

First, the whitening gel we have access to at Appleton Dental Care is much stronger and more effective than the products you can purchase at the store. This means that you’re more likely to achieve your desired results in a timely manner.

Over-the-counter products are “one size fits all,” which means they may not fit correctly, leaving you at risk for injury from the whitening gel. Many generic whitening systems are also only designed to whiten your front six teeth, or sight line, which may not allow you to achieve your desired results.
