Teeth Whitening

Improving your smile doesn't have to be difficult! Teeth whitening has incredible popularity as a cosmetic dentistry procedure because it is a quick and affordable way to make your smile brighter and more attractive. Within an hour, discolored or stained teeth can go from dull to dazzling. Uptown Dental provides in-office and at-home whitening options to create your sparkling smile safely and effectively. We recommend whitening shortly after a regular dental cleaning for optimal results.

How Teeth Become Stained

Do you live with a coffee or tea mug in your hand? Do you spend your afternoons sipping on a soda or energy drink? The enamel of your teeth can become stained due to eating and drinking habits. Foods and beverages that are acidic and deep in color can cause stains on your tooth enamel. In addition, tobacco use such as smoking and chewing affect the color of your teeth. Even if these vices don’t apply to you, your teeth can change color over time. Teeth whitening helps bring back their brilliant color, taking years off of your appearance.

Safe & Effective Teeth Whitening

With several over-the-counter and home remedy teeth whitening treatments on the market, how do you know which ones are effective or safe for your teeth? Trust the experts at Uptown Dental. We use professional Zoom Whitening treatment and also offer at-home whitening options.

In the office, our trained hygienists apply Zoom treatment so you have the peace of mind that you'll be treated safely and correctly. We also offer an at-home Zoom whitening treatment kit, which allows you to choose when to whiten your teeth while watching TV or reading a book. We will make sure you understand how to use the treatment properly before sending you home with the whitening trays and gel.

Another at-home whitening treatment called Opalescence Go provides another easy and disposable kit. The disposable trays conform to any smile and provide fluoride as well as whitening.

This short video, presented by Philips, provides a step-by-step guide of what to expect from a Zoom Whitening treatment. The video covers both the office and in-home treatments and the various settings available for the brightness you prefer.
