Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Your smile makes an important first impression, and sometimes, toothpaste alone is not enough to whiten your teeth. Having a luminous smile thanks to bleaching treatment at our Charlotte, NC, practice can be extremely beneficial to you:

Improved Appearance

Studies show that a white, attractive smile can make a person more appealing to others in both casual and professional situations.

Confidence Booster

Having a bright smile can make you feel better about yourself, boosting your self-esteem.

Simple, Affordable Treatment

Whitening treatment is simpler and more affordable than more involved procedures like porcelain veneers. Alternative procedures may be suggested if your teeth are damaged or severely discolored.

Excellent experience. The staff and doctors treat you like a person and not a number. My dentist spent a long time getting to know me before doing the dental work. Very satisfied with the results.

Am I a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

  • Dr. Pinnix or Dr. Betancourt can examine your smile during a comprehensive exam to determine whether you are a good candidate for teeth whitening. In general, patients should be over 16 and not be suffering from tooth decay or gum disease.
  • If our experienced dentists determine that your tooth discoloration is too severe for whitening treatments, alternative options like porcelain veneers may be recommended, which can be performed at our practice as well.

Wonderful!! They took such good care of me and I have had WAY too many bad experiences to count that were horrible with dentists. I was petrified and postponed my visit much longer than I should have. I'm not that way any more.... thank you!!

How Do I Keep My Whitened Smile Bright?

Many of our patients choose to combine in-office and take-home whitening for the most comprehensive results. Once you have undergone in-office treatment, touch-ups with take-home kits can maintain a bright, white smile. Healthy habits and lifestyle adjustments like these can keep your smile lustrous for years to come. 

Minimize staining foods and drinks like dark berries, wine, coffee, and cola

Quit smoking or using chewing tobacco.

Brush with toothpaste at least twice a day and floss daily

Rinse your mouth after meals when a toothpaste and toothbrush are not available
