Teeth Whitening

Are you unhappy with the shade of your smile? You might be curious about how you can whiten your smile efficiently and effectively. 

Patients may be happy to know that we offer professional teeth whitening at Topeka Dentistry.

Many people may not realize how easy it is to get pearly whites without spending a lot of money on dental treatments like dental crowns and veneers. Professional teeth whitening can lift yellow or severe stains and make your smile dazzling using bleaching trays and gels. Your cosmetic dentists, Dr. Carrie Peterson and Dr. Ben Rutherford, can provide brilliant results in a short amount of time. 

What Does Teeth Whitening Look Like in Topeka, KS?

Your journey to a whiter and brighter smile begins when you schedule an exam in Topeka for professional teeth whitening with your cosmetic dentist. Drs. Rutherford or Peterson will examine your teeth and gums to check your oral health. We will go over any dental restorations, previous oral work, and the health of your teeth and gums. 

If your cosmetic dentist establishes that professional teeth whitening is a great option, we will go over your desired results. 

Why Do My Teeth Appear Yellow?

You may see celebrities and models with perfectly white, pearly teeth. In comparison, a yellow or stained smile can appear dull and unappealing. Many factors can influence the color and shade of your teeth, which can make people feel self-conscious about their smile. 

  • Medication
  • Inadequate brushing
  • Smoking
  • Illness
  • Drinking coffee, tea, or wine
  • Genetics
  • Age

Custom Teeth Whitening Trays at Topeka Dentistry

Patients may decide to whiten their smile at our Topeka dental office for many reasons, including before a big event, or for a quick and cost-effective way to improve your appearance. We recommend having our office fabricate custom whitening trays. These trays are made to fit the patient's teeth securely and allow the whitening gel to properly distribute over the tooth.

Patients find they have less sensitivity after whitening and they are able to use the custom trays in the future for "touch-ups."

It's Better to Have Your Teeth Whitened by a Professional

At Topeka Dentistry, we recommend not wasting time, effort, and money with store-bought whitening kits. Over-the-counter teeth whitening will never have the same professional-grade strength that you can find with your cosmetic dentist. Inexperienced users can cause tooth sensitivity or damage to the gums if the gel is misapplied or for too long. 

We also recommend seeing our cosmetic dentists in Topeka before you have any dental procedure so that we can check the state and health of your teeth and gums. 

While professional teeth whitening is not permanent, you can expect to enjoy your beautiful results for more than a year after practicing a good oral hygiene routine.
