Consultation and Planning

Before proceeding, Dr. Turner will review your current state of oral health and identify any existing dental work such as crowns that won't respond to whitening. During your consultation, Dr. Turner will answer any questions you have about whitening treatment. 

Dental Cleaning

To ensure you experience the best results, a regular dental cleaning is recommended before beginning the whitening process. 


The process begins by placing a plastic guard or applying a gel to your lips and gums that acts as a barrier against the powerful hydrogen peroxide whitening solution. This helps protect the soft tissue in your mouth and minimizes sensitivity during treatment.

Whitening Sessions

Following preparation, the hydrogen peroxide whitening gel is applied to your teeth. The whitening gel remains in place for 15-20 minutes and removed. This process is repeated up to 4 times to achieve your desired brightness and your treatment is completed.

Final Results

Following your treatment, you will immediately see the results of a smile that is up to eight shades whiter than when you arrived at our dental practice. You may experience sensitivity in the days following treatment, but this side effect generally disappears within a couple of days. The use of anti-sensitivity toothpaste when brushing your teeth can help lessen this sensitivity.

Stained and discolored teeth can keep you from putting your best smile forward in social interactions. Teeth whitening is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that can help you look and feel your best.

Managing Tooth Sensitivity After Whitening Treatment

Tooth sensitivity is a potential side effect of teeth whitening and is most often a result of the bleaching solution used. Typically, tooth sensitivity after whitening is temporary and resolves within days of treatment. Still, there are steps you can take to alleviate the discomfort of sensitive teeth in the meantime, including:

  • Use sensitive formula toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush
  • Rinse with a fluoride-based mouthwash
  • Avoid acidic, sweet, or sour foods
  • Stick to room-temperature foods and beverages

If you have sensitive teeth or want to learn more about any sensitivity you might experience after teeth whitening, Dr. Turner is happy to consult you on what you can expect.

Aftercare Tips To Keep Your Teeth Sparkling

In addition to following the tips above to minimize discomfort and sensitivity, follow these tips to keep your smile looking dazzling:

Watch What You Eat and Drink

You've spent time and money to whiten your teeth, so don't backslide by staining the enamel all over again. Limit dark-pigmented foods and drinks, brush and floss regularly, and don't hesitate to rinse your mouth with a drink or two of water after enjoying a glass of wine.

Don't Use Tobacco

Smoking or using tobacco in other forms is a leading cause of yellow, discolored teeth. A nicotine patch can help you curb the habit. It's best to quit using these products entirely to maintain both your health and the results of teeth whitening.

Avoid Colored Dental Products

Be aware that some dental products you use could stain your teeth. For instance, charcoal toothpaste is known to naturally detox the mouth, but using these dark products immediately after your procedure can result in stained teeth.

Other Solutions For Stained Teeth Are Veneers Right for You?

Teeth whitening can eliminate surface stains, otherwise known as extrinsic stains. These are stains you get from smoking, drinking and eating dark drinks and food, and other factors you can control. Intrinsic stains discolor your tooth on the inside, making them resilient to teeth whitening treatment. Intrinsic stains can result from an injury, be a symptom of certain medications, or even be a part of your genetics. 

Veneers can help conceal these intrinsic stains that can't be properly concealed with teeth whitening treatments. Veneers can also help correct minor misalignment and crowding in your smile much faster than orthodontic treatment.
