Teeth Whitening

Professional-Strength Teeth Whitening

A bright and stain-free smile isn’t difficult to maintain with good hygiene and regular preventive dental care. But even with excellent care, teeth can gradually stain and lose their youthful glow. Fortunately, professional teeth whitening can erase even stubborn teeth stains to restore your smile’s shine, as well as your overall self-confidence. For your convenience, we offer a choice of teeth whitening treatment options, including an in-office procedure and a custom-designed take-home kit.

In-Office Treatment

When you need a brighter smile in a hurry, Dr. Lawson may recommend in-office teeth whitening, which can be performed during just a single visit, usually in just over an hour. Dr. Lawson will carefully and evenly apply the safe but potent brightening agent to your teeth, carefully covering your gums and oral tissues to protect them. The gel works to erase stains and brighten your teeth quickly and effectively, without the need for an uncomfortable, glaring light (the solution is chemically activated).

Take-Home Treatment

Despite the convenience of in-office teeth whitening treatment, many of our patients prefer the more casual pace of our custom, take-home whitening kit. The kit includes a set of custom-designed trays that fit securely and comfortably over your teeth so you can apply the whitening gel evenly over their surfaces. The trays also reduce tooth sensitivity and gum irritation. Take-home treatment usually requires about two weeks, during which you’ll wear the trays for one to two hours a day at a time that’s most convenient for you.

If your teeth are starting to show their years and lose their luster, brighten your smile with professional teeth whitening! Schedule a cosmetic consultation today by calling Lawson Family Dentistry in Urbandale, IA, today at 515-278-4366.
