When you whiten your teeth professionally, you can expect to have our dentist use bleaching gel that is applied to your pearly whites and then “activated” by a special light. Teeth whitening is an ideal way to lighten deep stains on your teeth, while not damaging the teeth in the process. Let’s take a look at your options when it comes to having your teeth whitened!

— Professional Teeth Whitening: Professional teeth whitening is done using whitening trays and potent gel by our dentist in our office. These are the safest to have done because our dentist is carefully monitoring your teeth and protecting your gums in the process while giving you a whitened smile tailored to your unique needs.

— Store-Bought Teeth Whitening: These whitening treatments are commonly found online or at a local grocery store or drugstore. These treatments can be unregulated, which means they can be harmful to tooth enamel and gums.

— In-Home Teeth Whitening: In-home whiteners can be provided by our dentist which you can use in the comfort and convenience of your own home, but which is proven to work, safely, when you follow our directions.

Depending on your needs, teeth whitening might be the perfect summer pick-me-up for your smile! If you would like to speak with Dr. Donald Brown III and our team about your teeth whitening options, we invite you to schedule a consultation with our Knollwood Dental Group team in Mobile, Alabama, by calling 251-666-3982.
