It’s easy to underestimate the importance of a great smile. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, 96 percent of adults believe that a healthy smile makes a person more appealing to members of the opposite gender.

A bright, white smile is synonymous with a healthy smile. Many people seek to achieve this appearance of a bright, healthy smile through the wonders of teeth-whitening, an effective process that’s ideal for patients who have yellowed teeth and no dental restorations. If you have ceramic fillings or dentures, the whitening process does not affect the synthetic materials.

Of all the cosmetic dental procedures there are, teeth-whitening is the safest. Even under the proper care of Dr. Peterson, teeth-whitening is absolutely safe.

Whitening is a great option for just about anyone, and patients who have reasonable expectations enjoy the results. A candidate for teeth-whitening is determined by Dr. Peterson with an oral exam and a shade assessment.

Dr. Peterson offers both the in-office and the take-home teeth-whitening systems. If you opt for an in-office teeth-whitening, Dr. Peterson will apply the whitening solution to your teeth, then use the heat from a special light (or laser) to enhance the whitening. If you are looking for the quickest and easiest way to whiten your teeth, then the in-office teeth-whitening is the best way to brighten your smile.

We also give you the option to whiten your teeth at home. Dr. Peterson can give you instructions and prepare custom-made bleaching trays for you, as well as a gel bleaching solution.

So, if you’ve noticed that your teeth have become stained or discolored, you might consider professional teeth-whitening. It could give you a brighter smile and improve your self-confidence.
