Teeth Whitening

Want to Look the Years Younger?

Fact: A yellowed, dull, and dingy smile can appear aged.

Fact: Teeth whitening could make you look ten years younger.

We all want a bright smile straight off the red carpet. Unfortunately, over time our teeth often lose their luster. Smoking, injury, and even the foods and drinks we consume can lead to embarrassing discoloration of our teeth. To remove teeth stains and help our patients obtain a stunning, vibrant smile, we offer professional teeth whitening.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

You shouldn’t be surprised to learn, teeth whitening is the single most popular cosmetic dental procedure across the globe. One study reports that after teeth whitening, job applicants were more likely to receive a job offer and higher rate of pay. We also know that a person’s smile is the second feature people notice, next to the eyes. Furthermore, an American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry poll tells us that people with an attractive smile seem more intelligent, successful, and friendly. If you would like to brighten your smile with professional teeth whitening and improve your quality of life, contact Cornerstone Dental today.

You Have Choices

Dr. Hussong recommends teeth whitening systems that he believes cause the least sensitivity and produce the most dramatic, long lasting results. With home and chair side whitening, you can obtain a brighter smile on your timeframe, offering a beautiful smile at your convenience. Dr. Hussong offers these advanced teeth-whitening options:

  • Kör Deep Bleaching:
Kör whitening combines in-office and take-home whitening and is recommended for people with tricky stains that have been non-responsive to other whitening treatments. This system takes a bit longer than others, but the results are amazing.
  • In-office Whitening:
If you want immediate results, visit Dr. Hussong for in-office teeth whitening. In about an hour, your teeth could become up to 10 shades brighter. Also called chair side whitening, in-office teeth whitening is a popular option for brides and grooms, as well as busy professionals. We use a powerful bleaching gel activated with a special light to remove discoloration fast.
  • Home Whitening:
If you prefer to whiten your teeth gradually, consider home whitening. Dr. Hussong will create a custom-fitted bleaching tray and provide prescription-strength whitening gel. He’ll also provide detailed instructions about how long you should wear the trays each day. Complete treatment usually takes between two and four weeks. Keep and reuse your whitening trays whenever your teeth begin to discolor. When you need more whitening gel, just call our office.

Other Cosmetic Solutions

In some cases, intrinsic, or permanent teeth stains, may require more than teeth whitening to address. A permanent tooth stains form below the surface, often the result of trauma or the use of certain medications, such as tetracycline. While teeth whitening may do little to remove these stains, we offer another cosmetic solution: porcelain veneers. Using lifelike shells of dental porcelain, we can mask stubborn teeth stains and rejuvenate your smile.
