The most common and requested cosmetic dentistry procedure in the United States is teeth whitening – and for good reason. Because of dietary, health, and other reasons, it’s tough to maintain brilliant white teeth. From coffee stains and sweets to medication, alcohol and other outside factors, our teeth become stained over time making us uncomfortable to share our smile with others. That doesn’t have to be the case. By visiting with Dr. Gary Moore and his staff of trained experts, you can alleviate discolored teeth by five shades or more. In just a single visit you’ll experience dramatic results that will last upwards to two years with proper maintenance – far longer and with much whiter teeth than at-home remedies.


Step-By-Step Teeth Whitening at Stetson Hills Arrange a time and day to meet with the staff at Stetson Hills to determine the extent of the discoloration you’re experiencing and if teeth whitening is best for you. Not everyone is cut-out for teeth whitening procedures – if you suffer from overly sensitive teeth, have severe discoloration, or other ailments, you may opt for other cosmetic procedures, like dental veneers. Rest assured that no issue you have with your teeth is beyond the scope of expertise for Dr. Gary Moore and the staff at Stetson hills. If you do wish to undergo in-office teeth whitening, you can expect the following:


Step 1: Cavities

If any of the teeth being whitened are suffering from cavities, Dr. Moore and his staff will fill those before continuing. This is to ensure you won’t suffer further damage from the peroxide gel which is applied later in the procedure.


Step 2: Teeth and Gum Cleaning

Before undergoing teeth whitening treatment, you want to ensure that the teeth in question and surrounding gums are free of plaque and other bacteria.


Step 3: Applying Peroxide

Gel The last step in the process is applying a peroxide gel to the problem areas, which helps remove deep-set stains from the enamel of your teeth. There will be three different applications, each running about 15 minutes each. In severe cases, additional applications may be needed, but all-in-all the process of applying the peroxide gel to your teeth takes roughly 45 minutes to an hour. After, you will see a dramatic difference in the whiteness of your teeth!


Why In-Office Teeth Whitening?

In-office teeth whitening, as opposed to at-home procedures, is dramatically more effective in removing discoloration for longer periods of time. While we recommend whitening your teeth with store-bought products as a means of maintaining the work Dr. Moore and his staff perform, it should not be the primary method with which you address discoloration from soda, coffee, and other causes. When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, you always want to have the assistance of a skilled professional like Dr. Gary Moore and his staff. There are any number of potential issues that may arise, and in just a single consultation we can determine what method is best for your teeth.


How Much Does Teeth Whitening Cost?

There are a number of potential factors that go into determining the cost of a teeth whitening procedure – like cavities, teeth and gum cleaning, and other factors. However, it is safe to assume that when meeting with the staff at Stetson Hills that our professional teeth whitening procedure will range anywhere from $600 – $1000. It’s important to note, too, that most dental insurance policies will not cover teeth whitening, but we do offer financial assistance and cost-saving plans to help pay for the procedure.
