Dental Whitening at Gentle Family Dentistry & Dental Implants

Dramatically improve your smile in a single visit with office dental whitening. Your smile is one of the first things people notice. A brighter, whiter smile is beautiful and can help you feel better about yourself.

A smile can often be improved by simply whitening teeth that have become stained and yellowed over time. Zoom in-office whitening can change the color of a smile eight shades of white in an hour. At-home whitening can help keep that smile white.

Office whitening and home whitening gel provide temporary results that require maintenance to keep your beautiful white smile. Dental whitening and home bleaching gel are often used together.

Teeth whitening options include:

Dental Whitening Choices

Dental laminates / porcelain veneers

Not all teeth respond the same way to bleaching. Some teeth may be stained deep below the surface. Dental laminates or porcelain veneers can provide patients with a permanent dental whitening alternative. A dental consultation is the first step in achieving your goal.  During your consultation, Dr. Clausen will explain which method is most likely to meet your goals.
