Teeth whitening options at our clinic

Teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in our clinic. And because we understand the demand, we provide the below services to whiten your teeth:

  • Laser teeth whitening: This treatment uses a special lightening gel activated by a LED laser. During the treatment, Dr. Richard Blackburn protects your lips and gums from the laser before applying whitening gel on your teeth. This gel breaks up teeth stains when exposed to a laser, giving you a white smile in less than one hour!
  • In-home teeth whitening: We offer Opalescence® teeth whitening system, which uses custom-made trays that you can use at the comfort of your home.

Are you worried about the cost of teeth whitening? Teeth whitening price depends on the method used, the condition of your teeth, and the number of sessions. However, cost shouldn’t bar you from whitening your smile. We are ready to discuss with you options that meet your budget.

How to maintain your teeth after teeth whitening

While teeth whitening gives you a bright smile, how can you maintain the shine now and for days to come? Here is what you need to do.

Avoid stain-causing foods

Foods like tea, coffee, wine, and soda cause teeth discoloration. Avoid these foods if you want to maintain your white smile for long. However, if you must use them, use a straw to avoid contact with teeth. Rinse off your mouth immediately after ingesting these substances.

Maintain excellent oral hygiene

Brushing at least twice a day, flossing daily, and using a mouthwash now and then are critical to maintaining a white smile.

Avoid smoking and tobacco chewing

Tobacco isn’t a friend to your white teeth. Nicotine causes deep stains on your teeth. So, if you want to continue flashing your bright smile for long, stay away from tobacco.

Visit your dentist for a checkup and cleaning

Dentist visits are not only good for maintaining a healthy smile, but they are critical for your overall oral health. Besides, dental cleanings and polishing can enhance the shine of your teeth. You can also talk to your dentist for a whitening touch-up.
