Teeth Whitening

Family 1st Dental holds all of our offices to a high standard of excellence in personalized dental care.

When our teeth become stained or discolored due to aging or lifestyle habits, many people make a trip to the store and get an at-home teeth whitening kit. Unfortunately, many of these patients do not get the results they wish and, in some cases, they even experience unwanted side effects. Here at Family 1st Dental, we recommend you skip these cheap, quick fixes and get the professional, effective teeth whitening service you deserve to restore your smile.

As the enamel of your teeth is worn away by the result of food, beverages, and tobacco, the darker tissue of your teeth, also known as the dentin, can become visible. Products like soda and coffee, citrus fruits and potato chips, are infamous for discoloring teeth. Over time in fact, teeth become more absorbent and susceptible to staining from food and other substances. In return, more and more people today are choosing teeth whitening procedures to reverse the effects.

Professional teeth whitening completed by our offices is believed to be the most effective and harmless method; done correctly, teeth whitening can last as long as five years. Over-the-counter whitening systems are somewhat effective as long as the directions are followed closely.

Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

Whiter Teeth

Professional teeth whitening usually takes less than an hour, and the results are immediate. When you visit our dental office for a teeth whitening appointment, we will help return your smile to its former beauty, leaving with a whiter, brighter smile.

No Side Effects

At-home teeth whitening kits can have damaging results on your teeth, removing the enamel that is critical to protecting your teeth. Professional teeth whitening services performed by a licensed dentist are much safer.

Preventative Care

When you come to our dental offices for professional teeth whitening, your dentist will examine your teeth before the whitener is applied. If there are any cavities or other issues with your teeth, the dentist will notice them, making an appointment for you to get the problem fixed.

Affordable

Professional teeth whitening services are remarkably affordable. While they are more costly than at-home teeth whitening kits, they are far more effective and are needed less often.

Family 1st Dental wants to give you the brighter, whiter smile that YOU deserve. If you are interested in teeth whitening or any of the other services we offer at Family 1st Dental,  click here  to find the nearest dentist office to schedule an appointment.
