Your smile is one of the first features people notice about you, so make sure it’s just as impressive as you are! Professional teeth whitening is an effective, fast-acting solution to brighten the color of stained and discolored teeth. Whitening your teeth can help to enhance the beauty of your smile as well as boost your self-esteem and confidence. Your teeth may be stained or discolored by a number of factors, including:

  • The natural aging process
  • Medications
  • Certain foods and drinks
  • Illness
  • Injury
  • Tobacco use
  • Fluorosis (white streaks due to excess fluoride intake as an infant)

At Holmes Dental, we’re pleased to offer the convenience of brightening your smile in the privacy of your own home. Your take-home custom trays are created to fit comfortably and optimize the effects of whitening.

We offer whitening solution that’s either 20% or 35% hydrogen peroxide, and will gladly discuss with you the benefits of each option. Plan to whiten your teeth for 30 minutes each time. You may choose to whiten every day, or every other day, and it may 2-3 weeks before you reach the desired brightness.

That said, everyone’s tooth enamel is unique, so your results will be individual to you. Your diet also makes a difference, as materials that stain your carpet will also stain your teeth! We recommend staying away from highly pigmented foods like blueberries, spinach, beets and red wine, and tea and coffee while going through the whitening process. (Straws work perfectly for bypassing your teeth during your daily caffeinated beverage!)
