Teeth Whitening

Has your otherwise healthy smile lost its bright, vibrant appearance? Do you wish you could turn back the clock to the time when your bright smile turned heads?

At the office of Trung Pham, DMD, we offer professional teeth whitening options that restore the youthful vibrancy of your smile and take years off your appearance.

What Happened to My Bright Smile?

The whiteness and brightness of your teeth depend on many factors, and the aging process is one of them. Over the years, microscopic holes open up in your dental enamel and trap stains from coffee, red wine, colas, and dark teas and dull your smile. At the same time, your enamel thins, and the yellowish layer of dentin beneath it is more apparent.

How Can Teeth Whitening Help?

Professional tooth whitening or bleaching is designed to penetrate the surface enamel and lift out stains and discoloration that dull your smile. At our dental practice, we offer both in-office and take-home whitening options for your convenience. You can choose the treatment option that best fits your needs, timeline, and preferences.

What Teeth Whitening Options Do You Offer?

Before you decide which is right for you, Dr. Pham will talk to you about your concerns, answer your questions, and check to see if you have had any issues with whitening sensitivity in the past. One of the benefits of having your teeth whitened professionally is that we can adjust the potency of the whitening agent to address your sensitivity level.

Since our patients have diverse needs, so we offer three types of whitening from which to choose.

  • In-office treatment – If you want to see stunning results in the shortest time possible, in-office whitening is the way to go. Dr. Pham oversees every step of your treatment, and in an hour or less, you will see dramatic whitening of four to six shades.
  • Opalescence Go – If you prefer a take-home whitening option, consider Opalescence Go. Comfortable trays are pre-loaded with the whitening agent so you can use the product right out of the box. Dr. Pham will choose the appropriate concentration for you, and the whitening agent contains potassium nitrate that reduces tooth sensitivity.
  • Custom take-home trays – Our custom whitening trays are made using impressions of your teeth for the ultimate fit. Since we customize the trays for your smile, the whitening agent covers all tooth surfaces evenly and prevents the gel from seeping out and irritating your gums.

Is a Brighter Smile in Your Future?

If you have given up on your smile because you think you’ll need expensive cosmetic treatment, you might be pleasantly surprised to see how easily professional whitening can transform your appearance. Dr. Pham and our team would love to explain the benefits of professional teeth whitening and determine which approach is most appropriate for you.

We always recommend a professional dental cleaning before teeth whitening to deliver the brightest, most uniform results, so please call us to arrange your appointment to get started.
