Our Littleton Cosmetic Dentist Whitens & Brighten Smiles!

Teeth Whitening Before and After.

At Columbine Dental, we believe that everyone deserves to have a smile they’re proud to show off. That’s why we offer a wide range of family and cosmetic dentistry services to the residents of the Littleton, CO area. Drs. William Meyer and Donald Hobbs always personalize treatment to suit the unique needs of each patient they serve.

While everyone would love to have a dazzling white smile, the reality is that our teeth become dull, stained, and discolored over time due to many factors like foods & drinks we consume and tobacco usage. One of the most popular, cost-effective, and convenient treatments we offer for enhancing smiles is professional teeth whitening.

If your teeth are stained, dull, and discolored, we can help you achieve the whiter and brighter smile you need for more self-confidence. Depending upon the whitening method you choose, the results can be dramatic, as it’s possible to whiten your teeth up to ten shades lighter.

Professional Teeth Whitening in Littleton

Professional in-office teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to enhance your smile. Using a professional, high-concentration bleaching formula, professional teeth whitening can achieve much better results than what can be achieved with the various teeth whitening products found on drugstore shelves. Plus, we make sure to protect the sensitive gums and tooth roots, making the whitening process safer and more comfortable for you.

Your Teeth Whitening Options

We only use professional strength whitening agents that are not available over-the-counter. This means you can rest assured that you’re getting the best possible treatment. Our practice offers two teeth whitening options:

In-Office Teeth Whitening.
  • In-Office Whitening – For the fastest and most desirable results, in-office teeth whitening is the best method available for dramatically improving the appearance of teeth. We begin by performing an oral exam to make sure your gums are healthy. Then we’ll cover your gums and tooth root surfaces with a protective barrier. A thin plastic device called a retractor will be used to keep your lips and cheeks out of the way as your Columbine cosmetic dentist applies a professional strength hydrogen peroxide gel to your teeth which will be left on for about one hour. During this time, you can sit back and relax. When we remove the gel, you’ll immediately notice that your teeth are whiter and brighter.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening.
  • Take-Home Whitening – While it will take longer to achieve your desired level of whiteness with our take-home teeth whitening option, you can still dramatically improve how your teeth look. If you choose this option, we’ll start by taking an impression of your teeth to create two thin plastic whitening trays that perfectly fit over your teeth.

When you’re ready to whiten your teeth at home, you’ll simply fill the trays with a whitening gel, then slip the trays over your teeth, leaving them be for about an hour. We’ll be sure to give you all the detailed instructions and tools you need when you drop by our office to pick up your at-home whitening kit.

How to Maintain Your Newly Whitened Teeth

While results vary from one patient to the next, most patients can enjoy their whitened smiles for six months to two years or longer. The best way to get the most out of your professional teeth whitening treatment is to do a great job with your oral hygiene. It’s also important that you visit us regularly for routine checkups and professional cleanings to keep your teeth healthy and beautiful.

We also recommend avoiding foods and drinks that are known to stain teeth like coffee, tea, red wine, beets, tomato sauce, and other colored foods and beverages. Smoking will stain and discolor your teeth, so consider kicking the habit so you can maintain your newly whitened smile for as long as possible.

We can provide you with whitening touch-ups now and then to keep your new smile white for years to come, so just ask!
