Teeth Whitening Port Townsend

Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with a simple whitening procedure. Tooth discolorations may have been caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful, brilliant smile.

Bleaching or whitening teeth is safe, quick, and relatively inexpensive. We offer a wide range of professional whitening products. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to begin whitening. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on your smile type and personal preferences.

In only a day or two your custom bleach trays will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear, nearly invisible splints. With only an hour or so of wear per day, the special bleaching agent will remove stains from your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the level of whiteness you want, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile.

 

Key Benefits

  • Corrects brown, yellow, and mottled tooth staining
  • Works on people of all ages.
  • Restores brightness and brings a smile alive.

 

How Is It Done?

When you come to our practice for teeth whitening, the process is straight forward.  We place a protective layer around your gums and apply the tooth whitening gel to your teeth.  Then a special light is shown on the teeth and after an hour the process is complete. 

 

Over the counter bleaching vs In-office?

Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available at drug stores and pharmacies; however, since these products can harm the gums and teeth, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends. For very severely stained teeth, crowns, or veneers may be more appropriate. Dr. Fordham’s experience & status as a respected dentist enables him to help you find the best whitening solution based on your situation.
