Teeth whitening solutions from Orem dentist, Dr. Damon Swenson

Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with a simple whitening procedure. Tooth discolorations may have been caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful, brilliant smile.

“teeth whitening is the top cosmetic procedure in the U.S.”

Bleaching or whitening teeth is safe, quick, and relatively inexpensive. With our focus on being the best Orem cosmetic dentist, we offer a wide range of professional whitening products. With in office whitening, or take home whitening solutions, we can help you find the best fit to meet your individual whitening preferences and needs. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to begin whitening. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on your smile type and personal preferences. In office teeth whitening solutions can provide results that are beautiful and immediate, and are ideal to help you look your best for special occasions or events.

If you prefer take home solutions, we can provide options that are customized to your preference. In only a day or two your custom whitening trays will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special whitening agent that you put into the clear, nearly invisible splints. With only an hour or so of wear per day, the special whitening agent will remove stains from your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the level of whiteness you want, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile.

Key Benefits

  • Corrects brown, yellow, and mottled tooth staining
  • Works on people of all ages.
  • Restores brightness and brings a smile alive.

How Is It Done?

An impression is taken to make a specialized “mouthguard” or “tray” to hold the bleach against the teeth. The material is used each night for about an hour two weeks, after which significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, whitening technology offers improvements in yellowing, aging, or stained teeth.

Considerations

Over-the-counter whitening agents are available at drug stores and pharmacies; however, since these products can harm the gums and teeth, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends. For very severely stained teeth, crowns, or veneers may be more appropriate. Dr. Swenson’s experience and status as a respected Orem cosmetic dentist enables him to help you find the best whitening solution based on your situation.
