Professional Teeth Whitening Can Work Wonders For Your Smile

October 29, 2023

One of the features of a sensational smile is bright, white teeth! These days, teeth-whitening procedures have become a relatively easy way to instantly improve aesthetics, create a positive first impression, and achieve a more youthful and radiant look. 

At the office of Apple Dentistry, our trained staff is highly skilled at performing professional teeth whitening techniques to help you look your best.

It’s no secret that life can do a number on the teeth. Despite your dedication to brushing and flossing regularly, food, beverages, advancing years and tobacco use can discolor teeth. Your formerly pearly whites are tainted with yellowish-brown stains that do no favors to your appearance. 

Professional teeth whitening performed by a dental office offers several advantages over over-the-counter teeth-whitening products: It’s easier and more convenient for the patient, and it produces better, more long-lasting results. The process is relatively simple and takes from 60 to 90 minutes to complete. Whitening products have hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. 

These bleaches break stains into smaller pieces, which makes the color less concentrated and your teeth brighter. When the lighter shade you want has been reached, the dentist or dental technician rinses your teeth and may put fluoride on your teeth to diminish any tooth sensitivity that may follow. 

Bear in mind that whitening products don’t work on all kinds of stains. For example, whitening won’t lighten up crowns, veneers or fillings. It’s also ineffective on teeth that have been tinged by injury or by the antibiotics tetracycline, ciprofloxacin and doxycycline when taken as a child.  


At the office of Apple Dentistry, we pride ourselves on being attentive to your every need and delivering the care you expect from our state-of-the-art practice. For more information about our teeth-whitening procedures and many other services, please don’t hesitate to call us today to schedule an appointment.
