Teeth WhiteningAn Overview
Teeth whitening is a highly effective and efficient way to improve the aesthetics of your smile. Patients with bright, white smiles are more likely to share their smiles, feel confident, and enjoy an improved quality of life.
Teeth whitening has become one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments, providing you with a quick, economical smile makeover for that special occasion, wedding or other special events. Dr. Perkins offers take-home and in office teeth whitening options so patients can choose how they whiten their smiles. Dentists recommend professional teeth whitening systems for the superior results and high-quality whitening gels. Professional whitening gels reduce tooth sensitivity and customized trays will help to protect the gums from irritation.
Professional teeth whitening can be used as a singular cosmetic treatment, or as part of a total smile makeover. Patients who recently had braces removed, finished Invisalign treatment, or who have quit smoking often choose to reward themselves with whiter teeth and a brighter smile.

Teeth Whitening What to Expect
Prior to any cosmetic dental treatment, Dr. Perkins will evaluate the patient’s oral health for optimal results. Dr. Perkins will discuss the patient’s teeth whitening treatment options with them prior to their procedure. The patient’s cosmetic goals, time line, and budget will also be considered.
Some patients may have tooth stains or marks caused by medications or trauma to the tooth. These stains may be resistant to bleaching gels. Dr. Perkins offers cosmetic alternatives to teeth whitening for improving the aesthetics of damaged teeth. Dental veneers, bonding, or Lumineers can all be used to restore the appearance of a discolored tooth.
Take Home Whitening Kits
Perkins Dentistry provides take-home whitening kits as a cost-effective and convenient way for patients to whiten their teeth. At-home teeth whitening kits give patients the flexibility and freedom to whiten their teeth on their own schedule. Dr. Perkins will create custom fit whitening trays for each patient. The trays will be worn for a few hours every day. Patients enjoy the subtle results they develop gradually.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
In-office teeth whitening can whiten teeth up to 8 shades in just 1 hour. Patients looking for immediate and dramatic results enjoy in office teeth whitening. A professional grade whitening gel is applied to the teeth. The gel is activated using a non-invasive special light. This process may be repeated 2-3 times depending on the patient’s whitening goals.
