Your Apex, NC dentist determines whether professional teeth whitening is right for you. If you are a good candidate, the next step is whitening your smile! The type of whitening and the method chosen depends on your exam and conversation with Dr. Prusik.

Professional teeth whitening can dramatically brighten your smile—in many cases, up to eight shades! Our take-home kit means that you can do periodic touchups to maintain your results or whiten on the eve of an event like a wedding or vacation.

Maintaining your results may also mean minimizing certain tooth-staining activities like drinking red wine, sipping coffee, or smoking tobacco.

Whitening your teeth can transform your smile—more so than you might think—and it’s one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry options in Apex, NC. However, to ensure a safe experience that does not harm your enamel, we strongly encourage whitening under the supervision of a dentist.

When you whiten your smile with your dentist’s approval, our dental office deems the ingredients safe for your teeth and gums. However, when you whiten on your own, this is not knowable.

Other reasons to stick with the professionals include even and predictable results.  

Your cosmetic dentist in Apex, NC, starts with a consultation, especially if you’re a newer patient and don’t have relevant or current information on file. The dentist can gauge whether professional teeth whitening is safe for you at this visit.

If it is, we typically start you with professional teeth whitening. This approach clears plaque and tartar, encouraging the whitening to better adhere to the teeth and lift stains.

A whiter smile improves confidence and allows you to choose lighter restorations like crowns and tooth-colored fillings.
