Teeth Whitening Strongsville, OH

Teeth Whitening An Overview

Teeth whitening can be a quick and economical smile makeover for an upcoming wedding, reunion or special event. A whiter, brighter smile will boost your smile confidence and take years off of your appearance. A local cosmetic dentist in Strongsville, OH, Dr. Leah Butler offers experienced care for whitening teeth with superior results.

Why choose the dentist for teeth whitening?
Many patients ask this question when faced with the choice of many over the counter options or a professional treatment administered in our office. While over the counter options can offer results for many patients, Dr. Butler can work with you to maximize results and ensure the safest outcome. Professionally administered teeth whitening uses superior quality bleaching products, offers consistent results and will address tooth stains and discoloration below the surface enamel.

Dr. Butler will meet with you to discuss your cosmetic goals and to evaluate your dental health before recommending a teeth whitening treatment. It is always best to start with a healthy oral foundation for the best result. Professional whitening treatment will also minimize side effects such as increased sensitivity or irritation of the gums and soft tissues.

Am I a candidate for teeth whitening?
Dr. Butler will evaluate the condition of your teeth and identify the cause of your tooth stains or discoloration. There are certain types of tooth stains that are considered resistant to teeth whitening agents, including changes in tooth color as a result of certain medications, medical conditions or genetics. For patients with tooth discoloration considered resistant to bleaching, Dr. Butler can offer alternative cosmetic treatments. Tooth bonding, dental crowns, and dental veneers can change the color and appearance of your smile with permanent results.

Teeth Whitening What to Expect

A professional teeth whitening can be completed both in-office or using a custom take-home kit. Both options can whiten your teeth up to 8 shades brighter and offer results that can last a year or more, especially with periodic touch-ups. Dr. Butler will discuss the expected results based on your dental exam.

An in-office treatment is typically completed in about 90 minutes with immediately visible results. We will protect your gums and adjust the level of bleaching to meet your needs. A custom take-home kit will require a brief visit to take dental impressions which are used to create your personal bleaching trays. Made to fit over your unique smile, the custom bleaching trays will offer consistency of results, less sensitivity, and more comfortable treatment. Dr. Butler will go over the instructions for using your home teeth whitening kit so that you can enjoy the best possible result.
