Why Choose MJM Family & Cosmetic Dentistry for Teeth Whitening?

Who is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

If you are unhappy with the shade of your teeth, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Murray to find out! Typically, patients who have experienced discoloration due to the natural aging process, coffee consumption, genetics, and certain medications are candidates. In fact, even if there is initially an oral health issue standing in your way, like tooth decay, we can easily start your treatment plan with the necessary restorative care so you can still have the bright, beautiful smile you deserve.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

At MJM Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer ZOOM!, Opalescence, and Day White and Nite White to lift stubborn stains. Of course, the whitening process will look a bit different depending on if you choose in-office or take-home teeth whitening as well. Here’s a bit more information on each:

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

With our take-home teeth whitening treatments, you can transform your smile from your very own home! Of course, you will first need to come in so we can make sure you’re a candidate. If you are, then we will give you all of the tools you need as well as detailed instructions on how to use them. Typically, you can expect to see results within a week or two.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Since our talented and meticulous cosmetic dentist will be applying the brightening gel and supervising your entire treatment, in-office teeth whitening is considerably faster. In fact, it’s possible that we can lighten your teeth by up to eight shades in a single visit! That’s why this is a popular treatment option among patients who have a milestone event coming up, like a wedding.
