Teeth Whitening

couple hiking | fort collins dentistStained, discolored, or yellow teeth can have a huge impact on your smile’s appearance and your feelings of confidence. Fortunately, professional teeth whitening is a fast and affordable cosmetic dental procedure that can dramatically brighten your teeth in as little as one hour at our Fort Collins dental office.

Who Should Whiten Their Teeth?

Teeth whitening is a great choice for you want to:

  • Enjoy the confidence boost that comes from a great-looking smile.
  • Present a brighter, fresher, or more youthful appearance.
  • Look your best for a wedding, reunion, or job interview.
  • Create a positive first impression with everyone you meet.
  • You’re tired of seeing your stained or yellow teeth in the mirror.

Types of Teeth Whitening We Offer

We offer three ways to whiten your teeth so that you can choose the one that best meets your needs.

Opalescence™ Boost™ In-Office Whitening

For in-office whitening, we use chemically-activated Opalescence Boost teeth whitening. After carefully protecting your lips and gums, we apply the Boost gel directly to your tooth surfaces.

We then let the product sit on your teeth for 20 minutes, then remove it so we can evaluate the whitening results and repeat the process if necessary. Everyone is unique, but most patients see the brilliant results they want with three 20-minutes sessions, for a total of one hour.

The benefits of using Boost are that we don’t use any hot LED lights and the gel contains potassium nitrate and fluoride for patient comfort. Best of all? You’ll walk out of our dental office the same day with a noticeably brighter, whiter smile!

Opalescence Go™ Pre-Filled Whitening Trays

The trays conform perfectly to any smile and come in two strengths; the 10% hydrogen peroxide solution is worn for 5-10 days for 30-60 minutes a day and the 15% concentration is worn for 5-10 days for 15-20 minutes a day.

Custom Take-Home Whitening Trays

We create your custom take-home whitening trays by taking comfortable, no-mess digital impressions of your teeth. We’ll provide the gel you need and recommend how long and how often to whiten. Wearing the trays for 20-30 minutes a day for 2-3 weeks works well for most patients and delivers bright, beautiful results.

The benefit of our custom whitening trays is that you can continue to use them to whiten at home whenever you want.

Schedule a Dental Cleaning to Get Started!

Before any type of whitening treatment, it’s crucial that your teeth are free of plaque and tartar. Both can affect the outcome of whitening and deliver uneven or inconsistent results.
