If you have noticed your teeth darken or become dull and discolored, no doubt you are looking for a solution to whiten your smile. There are many tooth whitening treatments you can choose from, and Dr. Brian J. Waggle can help you choose a tooth whitening experience that best fits your needs and preferences.

Teeth whitening is achieved when whitening agents containing carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide break down stains on your smile to make them less visible. All whitening treatments include this feature, and each varies in their benefits and levels of efficacy.

Whitening toothpastes are the most basic method to lighten your smile and are available through your local drugstore or supermarket. They include abrasives that whiten your teeth by reducing the appearance of stains. While high-quality whitening toothpastes are inexpensive and easy to find (make sure the box includes the ADA Seal of Acceptance), they only reduce mild surface stains and cannot change the color of the tooth.

Our team at Northpointe Dental can provide you with a flexible and powerful tooth whitening option with our take-home teeth whitening kits. These include custom-made trays and whitening gel. After pouring the gel into the trays, you then wear the trays over your teeth for a certain amount of time to achieve the desired level of whiteness.

If you are looking for a dramatic and immediate change in your tooth color and are willing to spend some time at our dental office, we can provide you with chairside bleaching. This in-office service is performed in a single visit, and Dr. Brian J. Waggle applies a bleaching solution to your smile whiten your teeth several shades. In-office teeth whitening is the most powerful option you can choose.
