Are your teeth looking a little dull? As adults, many of us will notice discoloration in our smiles. This can be due to a number of factors, including bad habits and neglect as well as natural aging.

We proudly offer a host of professional teeth whitening services designed to remove years of staining and discoloration safely and effectively. We offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments to meet your needs.

In-Office Teeth Whitening
Professional, in-office teeth whitening is considered one of the most popular and successful cosmetic dental procedures today. At Euclid Dental Center, we make the whitening process as simple and painless as possible. Our whitening specialists use a cheek retractor to make sure all the “esthetic zone” teeth (teeth you see when you smile) are visible. We then paint a hardening gel onto your gum tissue to protect them from any irritation. For the whitening substance, our specialists use a highly concentrated bleaching gel under carefully monitored conditions to give you immediately visible results. In addition to giving you the most immediate results, in-office whitening is the safest form of bleaching and is perfect for those with gum and tooth sensitivities.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
Prefer to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home? At home whitening options come in a variety of forms and can take anywhere from 30 minutes per day to overnight. All our recommended products guarantee a convenient safe, effective and customized brighter smile. Our office has custom-fitted dental trays and professional in-home kits that contain either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. For custom-made trays, our specialists will take an impression of both your upper and lower teeth using non-toxic dental impression material to make the mold. After one week, your trays will be ready and we’ll make an appointment with you to show you how to effectively use your home whitening product. The process takes about fifteen minutes to an hour a day for two weeks to reach your personal optimal results, and we’ll monitor your shade changes to make sure you’re on the right track for the smile you want.
Maximizing Whitening Effectiveness
Although there are so many whitening methods out there, there are some you want to avoid. Whitening mouthwash is a commonly used product that does not whiten your teeth. While it contains the right whitening ingredient, it doesn’t stay in contact with your teeth for long enough to produce a color change. In addition, every time you rinse, you are exposing sensitive areas like your mouth and gums to harmful bleach. Another whitening method to avoid is laser, LED or halogen whitening. These devices are usually run by non-professionals and can permanently damage your teeth and gums. At Euclid Dental Care we make sure to use only the safest and most effective procedures to give you the best results for your smile and health.
Caring for Your Newly Whitened Teeth
Whether you decide to go with an in-office treatment or opt for a home treatment, you will need to take care of your teeth post-treatment. One of the most important steps to caring for your whitened teeth is to brush and floss daily to ensure your mouth stays clean, healthy and stain-free. For coffee and wine lovers, brush with special toothpaste that protects against teeth discoloration. In addition to daily care, make sure to visit your dentist’s office for regular check-ups. Still noticing a change in your teeth color? Keep in mind that whitening is not a one-time procedure. If you want to maintain the desired level of whiteness, the process will need to be repeated from time to time.
