Our teeth are exposed to many factors that cause discoloration and fading over time. When your teeth are not as white as they once were, and you’d like to improve the appearance of your smile, professional teeth whitening is a quick way to give you the smile you’ve been looking for. At Woodlake Family Dentistry, we offer both in-office and take-home whitening options.
In-Office & Take-Home Whitening
Our in-office option can brighten your smile up to eight shades in only one hour. Our dental team helps reduce discomfort by protecting the sensitive areas of your mouth during your treatment. Our in-office tooth whitening solution can give a dramatically brighter smile!
We also offer whitening trays so you can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home. To complete a whitening treatment, you fill the tray with the professional-strength whitening gel and wear it for the recommended amount of time. At-home whitening gives you the results you desire at your convenience.
Professional Teeth Whitening FAQ
What are the different types of professional teeth whitening?
There are two ways to professionally whiten your smile — in-office whitening and take-home whitening trays. We use the dental industry’s best teeth whitening products for our patients that are both safe and effective. Some of the products used include Discus Dental (the makers of ZOOM® in-office whitening), Ultradent (makers of Opalescence®), and other high-quality professional products.
Is teeth whitening safe and effective?
At Woodlake Family Dentistry, the take home and in-office teeth whitening products we use have received the ADA seal of acceptance, which indicates that the products have met the ADA guidelines for safety and effectiveness. Contact our office to schedule your appointment!
Is teeth whitening safe for teeth with fillings or bonding?
Teeth whitening products are safe to use with dental restorations and will not damage them. However, keep in mind that whitening your teeth will lighten your natural teeth but can’t a filling, crown or other restoration. That’s why it may be recommended by Dr. Molina for you to have your teeth whitening done in-house, so they can help ensure that all your smile is evenly whitened to match the color of your existing dental work.

Does Professional Teeth Whitening cause Tooth Sensitivity?
The teeth whitening gel may cause sensitivity in your teeth and and gums. However, the sensitivity isn’t permanent and will fade shortly after your treatment. If you choose an in-office whitening treatment, our team can help minimize tooth sensitivity and adjust the treatment to meet your individual needs.
What to do before a professional teeth whitening treatment?
Whitening treatments can produce better results when your teeth are cleaned beforehand. If you’re in need of a dental cleaning before you have your teeth whitened, we’d be happy to help. Contact our office to schedule your appointment!
