Teeth Whitening

A Bright Smile Provides a Great First Impression

Having a bright and beautiful smile is guaranteed to give a great first impression. It may be a first date, a job interview or an important presentation, or maybe a high school reunion in which you want to make a memorable impression on others. Having a beautiful smile will boost your confidence as you interact with others. Teeth whitening will help to improve that smile and give you the confidence to face the world!

Teeth Whitening Options

Dr. Mark Knight and his staff at Knight Dental Care would be delighted to help you achieve that bright smile. There are several possibilities for you to consider depending on the results you are wanting. Call today so we can schedule you a consultation and provide you with the information you need to choose the best option. Here are those choices:

  • Teeth whitening toothpaste – Advertised as a teeth whitening treatment, is actually only a polishing treatment
  • Teeth whitening strips – A simple and effective treatment, but takes several days to see improvement
  • Teeth whitening gels/trays – A less expensive option but is not immediate. The whitening solution used is not as strong as the solution Knight Dental Care can provide. Because there are not different size trays available, this may not be a comfortable choice.

Advanced whitening is achieved in a few simple steps: We take impressions of your smile and create custom trays for you. We provide two strengths of whitening solution and record a starting shade to track the your results. Patients usually start to see results in just a few days! We monitor the progress, checking results after one month.

All effective tooth whitening options very likely will use peroxide as the active whitening ingredient. Tooth whitening bleaches your teeth and is not permanent but can be a beautiful improvement over just a polishing treatment. Your results will give you an obvious and dazzling smile!
