Our experienced dentists will learn about your smile goals, and together we can create a treatment plan to whiten your teeth to your liking, leaving your smile natural-looking and as white as you’ve always wanted.

What Can Cause Stained Teeth?

Healthy teeth aren’t always dazzling white. Even with excellent oral hygiene care, your teeth can still have staining. There are many reasons for stained teeth: red wine, coffee, and tea can all leave your teeth discolored. Smoking cigarettes promotes bacterial growth, which also stains the teeth yellowish-brown. The natural aging process can cause staining, and some antibiotics or medications can contribute. At W Dentistry, we want you to have the confidence to show off your beautiful smile, and we would love to help you achieve the smile you’ll love!

The Initial Dental Whitening Consultation

During our initial consultation for dental whitening, we will discuss any lifestyle factors that might affect your teeth’ color, like drinking coffee, wine, or eating darkly pigmented foods. We will also discover whether decay or other dental health problems may affect the color of your teeth and which tooth whitening option is right for you. Some issues must be corrected before whitening begins for a healthy outcome. Then, we will create a treatment plan in the company of our professional teeth whitening dentists to achieve a natural, white, and healthy smile for a lifetime.

The Methods We Frequently Use for Dental Whitening Are:

In-Office Teeth Whitening Option

For patients who want a quick whitening treatment to achieve flawless, bright white results, our in-office teeth whitening option may be right. These treatments are safe, simple, and effective. We protect soft tissue using rubber shields. Then, we apply a thin coating of professional-grade whitening gel and allow it to work for about twenty minutes. After the first twenty minutes, we’ll examine the results, and we can reapply as necessary to achieve the desired brightness.

Our At-Home Whitening Treatment Option

One of our most popular dental whitening options is our custom-made whitening trays that are made just for you! First, we will make a model of your teeth. Then we’ll create customized whitening trays that fit perfectly around your teeth and provide you with potent whitening gel to take home. For an hour each day, or while you sleep, you’ll wear the trays and gel, and you will see dramatic results in 1-3 weeks! To maintain these results, you will need to repeat the whitening process to keep your achieved results. The custom-made trays will last for years, so you can continue to whiten at home as needed.

Combination At-Home/In-Office Whitening Treatment Option

For the best results, we offer a combination option that involves whitening your teeth at home for two weeks with custom trays and gel, followed by an in-office session to boost and lock-in those results. Maintenance whitening is then continued at home once or twice per month.

Removal of White Spots After Orthodontics

If you have white spots remaining on your teeth after wearing braces for a while, there is a procedure that can help to remove those white spots from your teeth. It can be accomplished in one to two visits, and is a painless procedure where a resin material is absorbed through your tooth’s surface, making the white spot disappear almost instantaneously and completely.

FAQ's About General Dentistry

Below are some of the most frequently asked questions patients have about dentistry and oral health issues. If you have any other questions, or would like to schedule an appointment, we would love to hear from you.
Why do regular dental visits matter?
Regular dental visits are important because they can help spot tooth decay or gum disease early on, when treatment is likely to be simpler and more affordable. They also help prevent many problems from developing in the first place. Visiting your dentist regularly is also important because some diseases or medical conditions have symptoms that might appear in the mouth.
What can I expect on my first visit?
During your first dental appointment, we will begin by gathering all of the necessary information to determine your dental health. We'll take X-rays and examine your mouth for any problems that might need treatment. After cleaning you up, it's time to discuss all your dental solution options.
What insurance companies are you contracted with?
Although we do not contract with any insurance providers, we are able to accept most dental insurance on an indemnity basis. We will check with your insurance company to determine your out-of-pocket cost, and then get the claim started for you.

Because we accept dental insurance on an indemnity basis, you will need to pay for your services before we can begin any dental work. We accept cash, credit or one of our convenient financing options. Your insurance company will then reimburse you within a few weeks.
