Teeth Whitening in Jenks

Teeth Whitening at Casler Dental Group

When you smile, one of the first things another person will likely notice about you is the color of your teeth. If you have dull, discolored, or stained teeth, letting Dr. Conrad C. Casler, Jr. D.D.S. assist you with an in-house teeth whitening procedure may be highly beneficial. Even healthy teeth can become discolored over time due to genetics, eating certain foods, or using tobacco. Teeth can also become darker as part of the aging process. Receiving a whitening procedure is a highly effective way to create a brighter smile. Once it's applied, you'll feel more confident and want to flash your smile more frequently.

How Does the Whitening Procedure Work?

Here at Casler Dental Group, we use a professional solution for teeth whitening. It's essential to distinguish between our in-house procedure and the kits in retail stores. The ones you'll find at the retail level aren't as strong as a professional-grade kit and won't produce the same results. One of the main reasons for the difference is that the retail versions typically can't handle deep stains. They are only strong enough to remove stains from the surface of your teeth.

Who Is Eligible for Teeth Whitening?

Using a whitening solution to brighten your smile is typically performed when you're an older teen or adult. The procedure usually isn't done or needed for children. At Casler Dental Group, Dr. Casler will determine if you are a candidate for teeth whitening by examining your teeth to assess their current condition. If you have any cavities, he will likely recommend getting them cared for before implementing this cosmetic dentistry procedure. He does this to ensure that all your oral health needs are fully taken care of, as you don't want to expose a tooth with a cavity to the solution used to whiten teeth. Having a thorough examination should also help safeguard you from any discomfort you might experience if one or more of your teeth have a cavity.

How Long Does the Whitening Procedure Take?

Visiting our office to receive a whitening procedure will likely require you to spend 30 minutes to an hour in our dental chair to receive the best results. Depending on the type of treatment used, Dr. Casler will protect your gums and lips appropriately and prepare your teeth for the procedure. Then, the solution will be applied to your teeth and given time to activate fully. When the solution is placed on your teeth, it starts the process of oxidation. This action helps the molecules inside your teeth to reflect less light. Once it's completed, your teeth will look whiter.

Now that you've learned more about this procedure, you may be more interested than ever in enhancing your smile. Contact us online today or call us at 918-477-7677 to get started. Dr. Casler will be happy to discuss the available options and answer any questions you might have.
