Welcome to Holmes Dental, your trusted family dental practice dedicated to providing comprehensive dental care. We’re happy to offer teeth whitening, a popular cosmetic dental treatment that can help you achieve a brighter, whiter smile. Our experienced dental team utilizes professional techniques and advanced whitening products to ensure safe and effective results.
Understanding Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that lightens the color of your natural teeth and removes stains or discoloration. There are various causes of tooth discoloration, including aging, lifestyle factors, and certain medications. At Holmes Dental, we offer professional teeth whitening options that provide superior results compared to over-the-counter products. Our customized treatments also reduce the risk of sensitivity, ensuring a comfortable experience.
Professional Teeth Whitening Options
We offer two professional teeth whitening options at Holmes Dental to cater to your preferences and needs.
- In-Office Whitening: Our dental team performs a professional whitening treatment in our office using a high-concentration bleaching agent and advanced technology. This allows us to achieve immediate and noticeable results in just about an hour. We take extra care to protect your gums and enhance the whitening process using advanced light or heat, ensuring a safe and effective treatment.
- Take-Home Whitening Kits: If you prefer to whiten your teeth at your own convenience, we provide custom-made whitening trays and professional-grade whitening gel for you to use in the comfort of your own home. These custom trays ensure an even application of the whitening gel, and you can achieve gradual whitening over a period of several weeks.
The Teeth Whitening Process
The teeth whitening process at Holmes Dental involves the following steps:
- Initial Consultation: Our dental team evaluates your oral health and discusses your desired level of whitening to determine the most suitable treatment option. We consider your unique needs and goals to create a personalized whitening plan.
- In-Office Whitening: If you choose in-office whitening, we will protect your gums and apply the bleaching agent to your teeth. Advanced light or heat may be used to enhance the whitening process. The treatment typically takes about an hour, and you can leave our office with a noticeably brighter smile.
- Take-Home Whitening: For take-home whitening, we will create custom trays that fit your teeth perfectly. During your appointment, we will provide you with instructions on how to apply the whitening gel and how long to wear the trays each day. You can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, following the prescribed treatment plan.

- Reduced Sensitivity: Our professional-grade whitening products are formulated to minimize tooth sensitivity, ensuring a comfortable treatment process. You can achieve a brighter smile without discomfort or sensitivity.
Maintaining Whitened Teeth
To maintain the brightness of your newly whitened teeth, we recommend the following tips:
- Practice Good Oral Hygiene: Brush your teeth twice a day with a whitening toothpaste, floss daily, and rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash. This helps remove surface stains and maintain the whiteness of your teeth.
- Avoid Staining Substances: Limit consumption of foods and beverages that can stain your teeth, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco products. If you do consume them, rinse your mouth with water afterward or brush your teeth to minimize staining.
- Regular Dental Visits: Schedule routine check-ups and cleanings at Holmes Dental to monitor the health of your teeth and maintain your whitening results. Our dental team can provide touch-up treatments or recommend additional maintenance procedures if needed.
