Tooth Whitening

A Whiter, Brighter Smile is Just Around the Corner

According to an American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry survey, almost 100% of adults believe that beautiful smiles are important social assets. When these same respondents were asked what they would most like to improve about their own smiles, the majority said they wanted whiter and brighter teeth.

Teeth Whitening in Colorado Springs, CO

Teeth whitening is a simple procedure involving the bleaching of the teeth, and is one of the most common treatments performed in cosmetic dentistry today. It is non-invasive way to change the color of your natural teeth and correct the discoloration caused by food and drink, smoking, antibiotic use, etc.

There are several types of teeth whitening procedures.  Some are performed in the office, however at Lehman Drive Dental we usually complete tooth whitening in two visits. At the first appointment, our cosmetic dentist will take impressions of your teeth so that clear plastic trays can be made. At the second visit, these trays will be adjusted so they fit comfortably before being filled with a special whitening solution and worn at home for approximately half an hour a day, every day for two weeks. Yes, you can achieve a long-lasting, whiter, brighter smile within just two weeks!

Only Natural Teeth Can Be Whitened

It is important to remember that tooth whitening only works on natural teeth, so any old crowns or fillings will need to be replaced and the new ones matched to the color of the whitened teeth. It is also not a permanent treatment and will likely need touching up periodically depending on the amount of coffee, tea, etc. that is consumed.  Your whitening trays will last for years to come allowing you to always keep your smile looking bright and fresh!
