We’ve all dreamed of a pearly-white smile, free from flaws and disease.

Safe and effective, our teeth whitening treatments with Niveous Professional Tooth Whitening will give you a gorgeous smile.
Why seek a brighter, whiter smile? For most, it’s purely for aesthetic reasons. A confident smile and outlook can take you a long way, and it can all start with the appearance of your teeth. Studies have shown that most people look more favorably on individuals with straight teeth and a bright smile. Teeth whitening can bring about a renewed confidence, brightening your appearance along with your teeth. Many of our patients in public-oriented careers, report feeling more confident about their smiles when giving speeches, presentations, or meeting clients and fellow politicians now that they have whiter teeth. Let us help you make a great first impression with teeth whitening. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Ross, and discover your candidacy for teeth whitening.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Before starting any teeth whitening treatment, a thorough examination is conducted by the dentist to assess the patient’s mouth, including the condition of the enamel. Based on the exam, the appropriate method is discussed with the patient and chosen. It’s important for patients to understand that if the enamel is in overall poor condition, the teeth will be too sensitive for teeth whitening to work. The dentist may recommend porcelain veneers, which achieves teeth whitening by bonding a custom-made veneer over the natural tooth. For patients whose mouths are in good condition, there are several teeth whitening options available.
While no teeth whitening option is permanent, results can last several years. The results of laser treatments last the longest at 3-4 years. In some cases, results can last more than 5 years. With in-home treatments, patients can expect results to last a couple of years. Whitening is extended through proper care such as regular brushing with recommended kinds of toothpaste, flossing, and appropriate mouthwashes. Regular check-ups should be part of this routine since regular professional cleanings can remove plaque and tartar. In addition, patients should limit foods and drinks like berries, tea, coffee, and soda that stain teeth.
Several factors determine the cost of teeth whitening such as the whitening method used, the number of treatments needed, and the patient’s desired whiteness of the teeth. The dentist can provide further details on all costs involved during the consultation.
