Whiter Teeth for a Brighter Smile

Whiter teeth have become a must-have accessory to the grooming routines of both women and men. It is expected that professional people will have attractive smiles.

Dr. William Harper offers a variety of procedures that will make your smile whiter, brighter and more beautiful. Whitening is often combined with restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures to produce a complete smile makeover.

Teeth naturally darken as we age. Certain drinks and foods can leave stains on teeth. Sometimes medications, such as childhood tetracycline use, tobacco use or improper oral hygiene can result in unattractive staining or coloring.

Every smile can improve. If someone has very significant staining, dental veneers or dental crowns improve the appearance of any smile.

In-Office Whitening
The quickest route to white teeth, Dr. Harper applies a high-concentration peroxide gel to the teeth, which is then activated by heat, a special light and/or a laser. Good results can occur in only one treatment, taking 30 to 60 minutes.

When you see Dr. Harper for teeth whitening, he customizes the treatment for you. The product he uses maximizes results while minimizing side effects like tooth sensitivity. The bleaching tray will be custom-fitted to your mouth.

At-home Whitening
You can use these at home on your own time. The bleach is not as strong as the dentist’s, so it will take more treatments. Usually, you must use the kit once a day for a few weeks.

How long will one treatment last? It depends a lot on your lifestyle, whether you smoke or use other tobacco products, and what foods you eat. Side effects such as tooth and gum sensitivity can occur. Our in-office products are specifically formulated to minimize these effects.
