Teeth Whitening An Overview
Teeth whitening is a quick, painless and economical cosmetic dental treatment that can take years off of the appearance of your smile. Teeth that have become stained, yellow or darkened can be made whiter and brighter for a smile that looks more youthful and healthy.
Dr. Moore offers professional teeth whitening in our Charlotte, NC dental office for patients seeking a quick smile makeover for an upcoming wedding, reunion, special event or to boost their smile confidence. We recommend teeth whitening for a range of tooth discoloration concerns that are not related to a dental health issue or the result of certain factors that are considered resistant to bleaching products.
Teeth whitening can be performed in the comfort of our dental office or in your own home using a customized take-home kit.
Why choose a dentist for teeth whitening?
Dr. Moore can oversee the process for the safest, best possible result with minimal side effects. Over the counter options can often cause unnecessary sensitivity and inconsistent results when compared to a professional process.
Am I a candidate for teeth whitening?
Dr. Moore will meet with you to evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums and to discuss your cosmetic goals. Most patients will be considered candidates for professional teeth whitening, but there are several types of tooth stains that can be resistant:
- Tetracycline stains which can make teeth look gray
- Stains from certain medical conditions or medications
- Genetic tooth discoloration
