Professional Teeth Whitening For A Brighter Smile
Professional teeth whitening offers several advantages over the counter whitening methods. At Advanced Dental Health we use Venus MAX as our preferred method of in-office whitening. This powerful bleaching treatment whitens your teeth multiple shades in just one office visit. Using professional grade bleaching agents allow us to create predictable, buildable results as well as limit the effects of tooth sensitivity and gum irritation.
Benefits of teeth whitening include:
- Fast, effective results
- Minimizes the risk for complications
- Long lasting results
- Safe to use in the office or at home
- A non-invasive way to enhance your natural smile
Teeth Whitening Options
Professional teeth whitening is the ideal for solution for patients who have stained or discolored teeth due to factors like coffee, wine, tea, and smoking. For patients with stains caused by poor oral hygiene, certain medications, or dental trauma, we may recommend porcelain veneers or another cosmetic solution to help you achieve your desired smile. Not all types of stains respond to teeth whitening treatment, so we will evaluate your smile and build a treatment plan based on your specific needs.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
In-office teeth whitening is fast, effective, and safe to use, making it the ideal solution for patients who want dramatic results in a little amount of time. We use Venus Max, a unique whitening solution, which is activated using a unique syringe to syringe mixing method. This solution also contains potassium nitrate, which helps decrease sensitivity that is commonly associated with teeth bleaching. To achieve beautiful, dramatic result, the whitening solution is applied to the teeth in 15-minute increments over the course of an hour. Once the treatment is completed, patients can enjoy their beautiful, bright smile. To maintain your results, we offer custom take-home teeth whitening trays.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
If you would like the convenience of whitening your teeth at your own discretion, we recommend take-home teeth whitening. Whitening your teeth at home can yield long-lasting, beautiful results as long as the proper steps are followed. Whitening solution and trays provided by your dentist office are typically more effective than over the counter solution. Take home teeth whitening combines the effectiveness of in-office teeth whitening with the convenience and controlled results most patients desire. Dr. Izadi or Dr. Rafat will create custom-made whitening trays and discuss the specifics of your treatment.

Tooth Whitening FAQs
Does professional teeth whitening ruin the teeth?
No, and professional teeth whitening is often better for your teeth than over the counter options. Professional whitening formulas are designed to minimize sensitivity and give you the best results.
Is teeth whitening permanent?
No, teeth whitening is not a permanent solution. If you avoid staining food and beverages, you can lengthen the benefits from your teeth whitening procedure. Depending on your oral healthcare routine and the things you consume, teeth whitening can last anywhere from six months to three years.
Do my teeth stain easier after getting them whitened?
Immediately after getting your teeth whitened, you should avoid smoking and things like coffee that may stain. The pores of your teeth are more open after whitening, so things can get in there to stain easier.
