Teeth Whitening 

One of the most high-valued cosmetic dental treatments that can enhance the appearance of your smile, is teeth whitening. Everyone is looking for that sparkling, white smile and here at Affordable Dental Care, we offer both in-office and take-home whitening methods. We are dedicated to helping you gain a smile that gives you confidence. If you are in the Tumwater, Washington, area, we encourage you to keep reading about our professional whitening services and how they will benefit you. 

Whitening Process

If you have been wanting to learn more or even take advantage of our whitening services, our first step would be to sit down and have a consultation with our dental professional. We will review your oral history, speak with you about the goals for your smile, and ultimately decide if whitening would be a good treatment option for you. With whitening, we take your wants and desires into account, so please tell us what your hopes are and we will figure out the best treatment plan for you. 

We offer two methods of professional whitening, our in-office and take-home whitening, both excellent treatments that in one way or another accommodate your schedules. 

Our in-office whitening consists of just one, single hour, appointment to our office. First, the dentist will clean your teeth and will apply a gum and surrounding tissues protectant. After, a whitening bleach substance containing hydrogen peroxide will then be applied to the outer surfaces of your teeth. To activate the dental bleach to whiten your teeth, we expose your teeth to 3, 15 minute blue light sessions. Whitening bleach, while being activated by the blue light, will seep into the enamel of each tooth allowing for the tooth to change shade. 

This 1-hour whitening session will have your smile looking multiple shades whiter and brighter. 

We also offer take-home whitening kits for convenient at-home whitening. When deciding this is the best plan for you, we will take impressions of your smile to make you personalized whitening trays. These trays are clear, soft, retainers that will hold the dental bleach through whitening treatments. 

To whiten with the take-home kits, you apply a small amount of bleach in the trays and then wear the trays, allowing them to whiten, for the designed amount of time given to you by the dentist. Whitening kits can be done at any time that is convenient for you and the kit can be used multiple times, however, the results will not be as immediate as in-office whitening. 

Why Whiten? 

Over time, due to the different beverages, food, and alcohol that we consume, our teeth will begin to stain and lose their brightness. Even with many over-the-counter whitening options, it can still be difficult to maintain a white smile. Professional teeth whitening is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to help you gain a smile that you love. Professional whitening is guaranteed to give you a lasting, brighter smile.
