Teeth Whitening Options For Your Best Smile!

Teeth Whitening in Atlanta: What are your best options?  The ADA did a survey, and 90% of the people who participated were interested in how they could whiten their teeth, and it's the same in my practice as well. Keep in mind when it comes to teeth whitening, there are several options for you.


  1. Cosmetic Dental Teeth Whitening
  2. Over-The-Counter Teeth Whitening Kits
  3. In-Office Teeth Whitening or Bleaching
  4. At-Home Teeth Whitening Trays
  5. Do You Have Questions About Your Teeth Whitening Options?

Cosmetic Dental Teeth Whitening

Don’t let tooth discoloration ruin your smile. The things that you eat and drink every day affect your teeth. Teeth whitening is a safe, easy and effective way to brighten your teeth to restore that clean, even tooth color that you used to have.


Did you know? Some over the counter whiteners can actually damage your teeth? Before you start any whitening program, you should consult your dentist!


Getting married soon? Have a job interview, an important date coming up? A big event you need to attend? Want to look and feel your best? Want to take years off your face and smile? For your whitest teeth and a beautiful smile, we offer take-home whitening trays that will noticeably whiten your teeth.


Brushing your teeth and flossing your teeth every day is a good way to brighten your smile and keep your teeth healthy and clean.


Although we first want to focus on healthy teeth, we always want to brighten that smile as well.  Brushing your teeth and flossing your teeth every day is a good way to brighten and keep your teeth healthy and clean.


Many of our patients just want a little extra sparkle for a special occasion such as getting married, class reunions or even an upcoming vacation.  Some people have stains that may be caused by tobacco, food, medication, or aging which all play a role in your teeth changing in shades because the enamel is thinning.


If you have any of those issues where you'd like to brighten your smile, then the teeth whitening process is a simple one, and there are a few options available to you these days. The process of teeth whitening is a bleach that has two components in it that act to break down the stains and brighten the enamel.

Over-The-Counter Teeth Whitening Kits

One option to help you achieve a brighter smile is over-the-counter teeth whitening kits. There are lots of product lines out there that have a whitening element or component to them. The key to using these products is consistency in order to get or obtain a result that you're happy with.

Often, patients get to a stage where they've seen some changes or see some brightness in their teeth, and then they stop. Then, the fading comes back, or the stains come back, or you haven't changed your habits.

If you want to use these products and achieve an optimal result, you have to continue to use them consistently.   It's not a one-and-done.

In-Office Teeth Whitening or Bleaching?

The second option is in-office bleaching or chairside bleaching. It's a higher concentration of the bleach, and it's done for a short, focused amount of time.

One of the disadvantages to all of the bleaching techniques, and especially this one, is a sensitivity that occurs in the tissues and the teeth.

Dentists will often use Dental or liquid dams to isolate your teeth and provide protection for the gum tissue around them.

At-Home Teeth Whitening Trays

The other technique that I want to highlight is the one that we promote here at Peach Valley Dental, at-home teeth whitening trays.


Custom trays are made to fit your teeth, top, and bottom, and you're given a kit of syringes with the bleaching gel in them. You add the whitening gel into the trays and use it consistently until you've achieved a change in shade or a shade that you're comfortable with.

As you achieve that shade with the at-home bleaching kit, you can then use it less frequently. But do not stop using it, or else the shade will fade again.


Again, with all of these techniques, there are the disadvantages of some sensitivity.  It may be mild or moderate, and not everybody experiences it.


That's why it's important if you're not used any kind of bleaching technique to try the over-the-counter first.   Over the counter teeth whiteners have the least concentration of the bleaching additive. They also tend to be less sensitive to your tissues and your teeth.
