Many patients wish they could enhance the color of their smiles in time to take family photos or attend an important occasion, and our dentist and team at Smith & Stahr, P.S.C. are happy to offer in-office teeth whitening treatment to help them! If you are considering professional teeth whitening to improve yellowing and tooth stains, we invite you to learn more about the procedure.

On average, a dental professional can provide a much more effective and long-lasting teeth whitening procedure than the results you would receive from using a store-bought whitening product. This is because we utilize advanced and high-end materials and techniques that are tailored to your specific cosmetic needs. In as little as an hour at the first whitening appointment, we can whiten your smile up to eight shades with our whitening treatment, providing stunning results that last months at a time.

The first step in the procedure is to create a dental tray that is shaped like your unique mouth to ensure you are comfortable during treatment and each tooth can be safely whitened without harming the gum tissue. One the tray is full of hydrogen peroxide or another powerful whitening agent, we can place it in your mouth and have you bite down. The bleach then coats the teeth and works on breaking down tooth stains so that they become less visible. To further improve tooth color, we can activate the whitening solution with a potent dental laser.

If you are interested in achieving a whiter smile through in-office teeth whitening in Lexington, Kentucky, we invite you to call and schedule with one of our experienced dentists, Dr. David C. Smith and Dr. Gregory V. Stahr at 859.278.9391 today!
