Professional Teeth Whitening

Your smile may not be as bright as you want it to be, thanks to years of coffee and red wine consumption, age, or even an injury. However, there’s good news – professional teeth whitening treatments at Dental Depot in Blue Springs and Independence can restore your smile and brighten it by up to 10 shades. These treatments can remove surface stains as well as deeper ones below the enamel. You can choose from our in-office chairside treatment or take-home whitening kits to achieve the perfect smile you’ve always wanted.

Professional Teeth Whitening Options

Professional teeth whitening treatments come in two types: take-home or at-home kits and in-office or chairside whitening. Take-home kits involve prescription-strength whitening gel and silicone trays that you can use in the comfort of your own home. This option delivers more natural results since teeth are whitened gradually, and the stronger bleaching agents can effectively whiten teeth compared to over-the-counter products. On the other hand, in-office whitening requires a visit to the dentist for application of special whitening chemicals to avoid damaging oral tissue. In-office whitening produces fast, dramatic, and instantly visible results, often achievable in just one visit.

Is professional teeth whitening expensive?

Although professional teeth whitening is more expensive than standard over-the-counter whitening products, it delivers faster, brighter, and more reliable results. Additionally, the concentration of professional whitening gel is stronger and is applied under the supervision of a dental professional to ensure the safety and health of your teeth and gums. A dental professional can also determine whether any crowns or veneers will not respond to the whitening and ensure that the gel won’t cause any harm to the oral tissues. At Dental Depot, we provide a variety of affordable professional teeth whitening options and flexible financing and payment plans to make sure that a beautiful smile doesn’t have to cost a fortune.

Are there side effects with teeth whitening?

Professional teeth whitening is a safe and non-invasive cosmetic dental treatment that typically has minimal side effects. While the chemicals used in the whitening process may cause temporary sensitivity or gum irritation, these symptoms usually resolve within 48 hours of treatment. If discomfort persists beyond this period, it can often be managed by making temporary dietary changes such as avoiding hot, cold, crunchy, or acidic foods, and using a toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth.

How long does professional teeth whitening last?

Professional teeth whitening is a restorative cosmetic procedure that does not prevent staining, so its results are not permanent. The longevity of professional teeth whitening results depends on several factors, such as the degree and type of stains, and your lifestyle. By practicing good oral hygiene and scheduling regular professional cleanings, your teeth can remain brilliantly white for anywhere between 6 months to 2-3 years. However, consistent use of nicotine and regular consumption of dark or acidic beverages such as coffee and wine will gradually diminish your smile’s brightness.
