Teeth Whitening

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a safe, noninvasive cosmetic dental procedure that Dr. Herzog uses to whiten and brighten discolored teeth. He and his team offer in-office or at-home products that enhance your smile’s beauty by making teeth multiple shades whiter.

What causes teeth staining?

Teeth can stain over time due to normal wear and tear, aging, tobacco products, poor oral hygiene, and foods and drinks such as:

  • Red wine
  • Dark-colored juices
  • Berries
  • Beets
  • Sodas
  • Coffee and tea
  • Popsicles
  • Soy sauce
  • Tomato sauce
  • Balsamic vinegar

Many of the foods and drinks that stain teeth provide nutritional and health benefits, so you don’t necessarily have to avoid them. Simply brush your teeth after consuming stain-causing foods and drinks and consider teeth whitening to remove stains.

What should I expect during teeth whitening?

Dr. Herzog and his team offer numerous teeth whitening options at Issaquah Dental Health, so you’re sure to find one that matches your needs. Examples include:

In-office whitening

To get your teeth shades whiter after a single dental visit, Dr. Herzog offers professional-strength, in-office teeth whitening. During the procedure, he preps your mouth and applies a layer of advanced whitening gel or varnish to your teeth. He may use an LED lamp to accelerate whitening.

After your session, Dr. Herzog applies a post-treatment gel or sealant to protect your teeth and reduce sensitivity. The procedures might take 30-45 minutes. Before you leave, Dr. Herzog gives you custom trays with a take-home whitening kit, so you can touch up and whiten your smile at home as needed.

At-home whitening

At-home whitening kits can also make your teeth shades whiter. Dr. Herzog provides you with quality whitening products and custom trays so you can achieve the whiter, brighter smile you desire from the comfort of your home.

The trays are fabricated especially for you so only your teeth, not your gums, are in contact with the whitening solution. At-home whitening may take 10-14 days, but you should notice results in as little as 3-5 days.

At Issaquah Dental Health, all new patients receive free teeth whitening services.

When you’re tired of unsightly stains and ready for a beautiful white smile you’re proud of, book an appointment with Dr. Herzog and his team today or schedule online.
