Teeth Whitening

Whitening your teeth is one of the fastest and easiest dental cosmetic procedures that you can do to have a large impact on the look of your teeth. We can remove years of wear and tear, helping you look fresher, brighter, and even younger. At Woodland Family Dental PC, we know that you want to look your best, put your best foot forward, and make a great first impression. Whitening your teeth can significantly help your look, and your self confidence. We offer both in office whitening procedures, and prescribed take home whitening kits. By choosing to have your teeth whitened under the direction of Dr. David Welton or Dr. Sunnshine Welton, you can have larger results, done more quickly, and safely, versus attempting to whiten on your own with an over the counter product. The difference is clear.

Over the Counter Whitening Products

We are asked all the time if an over the counter tooth whitening product will actually work. The short answer is yes, the long answer is yes, but, it will take a longer period of time, there is chance of burning your gums, and you may not get the results you are hoping for. This is due to peroxide. Peroxide is the chemical that is used to whiten the enamel of your teeth. Over the counter products have a very limited amount of peroxide, we are able to prescribe a much higher dosage for a take home kit, and an even higher dosage when used in our office under our direction and care. This decreases the length of time needed, and increases the end results.

How did my teeth get so dirty looking?

Dirty or dingy looking teeth comes from normal daily use, even with regular brushing and flossing. Many of the foods and drinks we love can darken and stain our teeth. Tobacco products also darken and stain our teeth as do a large variety of medications. We recommend that our patients consider whitening their teeth, with yearly touch ups to maintain a clean and healthy looking mouth. Some of the most common staining offenders include:

•  Drinks with tannic acid. This includes coffee, tea and cola products.
•  All berries can cause staining. The deep color or hue in berries, including raspberries, blueberries, cranberries, and blackberries can cause staining, this is true whether you are eating them, drinking them in juice form, or eating them in jellies and jams. Red wine has also proven to cause teeth staining.
•  Sauces have been noted to cause teeth staining. This includes soy sauces and tomato based sauces.
•  Smoking and chewing tobacco has been noted to cause yellowing and staining of your teeth.
•  A long list of medications, most notably the antibiotics called tetracycline and doxycycline can cause teeth staining.

In Office Teeth Whitening

We can whiten your teeth with significant results in our office in about one hour. Under the direction and control of Dr. David Welton or [[[CLIENTEX:DOCNAME2]], we can use a powerful dosage of peroxide, using caution to not burn the soft gum tissue, getting you instant results. Our patients love the ease and speed of this whitening service.

At Home Whitening

For patients who want more control over their whitening process, we can prescribe a customized whitening kit to do at home. Patients can take more time with their results, getting the look they want.
