Teeth Whitening Can Reveal a Brighter and More
Youthful Smile

When you look in the mirror, do you notice a smile with dark, yellowed, or dull-looking teeth? At Elite Dental Care, our dentists provide in­-office and take­-home teeth whitening at our Germantown, Trenton, and Jackson, TN, offices. Teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment that uses a special gel to remove mild to moderate stains, brightening and restoring the sparkle to your smile. Whitening can be completed in one to three 
appointments, although it is not recommended as a one-time procedure. For optimal results, we recommend periodic maintenance treatments.     

Are You a Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a near-perfect solution for patients experiencing mild to moderate discoloration and yellowing from surface stains. This type of dental staining is typically found in patients who do not practice good oral hygiene or consume:

  • Coffee
  • Black tea
  • Red wine
  • Dark-colored colas
  • Tobacco products
  • Berries and other staining foods

Dental staining and darkening of the teeth may also result from the consumption of tetracycline antibiotics, your genetics and age, or trauma to the tooth.  In cases where your tooth has experienced some type of trauma or is stained from tetracycline, we generally recommend another type of cosmetic procedure, such as porcelain veneers or dental bonding. These stains are typically intrinsic, or deep-set, making professional teeth whitening gels ineffective.

In-office Treatment vs. Take-home Kits

With in-office treatment, your dentist will use a stronger whitening gel and specialized light to accelerate the chemical reaction. This allows the gel to work faster with longer-lasting results. In most cases, your treatment will take about an hour, and we recommend coming in for up to three office visits to achieve optimal results.

Whether you choose in-office or take-home teeth whitening treatment, we will provide you with practical instructions to help you experience the longest-lasting results.

The severity of your dental staining will determine how many treatments you will require. Each patient is different, and certain types of surface stains respond differently to bleaching. During your initial consultation, your dentist will discuss the options available to you and the recommended treatments involved.

Once your trays are designed, your dentist will first check that they fit comfortably over your top and bottom teeth. You will receive a whitening gel to place inside your trays before fitting the trays over your teeth. After wearing your trays for at least 30 minutes each day for two to three weeks, your smile should be several shades lighter.
