We all want a bright, sparkling smile for winter festivities! However, if your teeth are less than lustrous, you might consider teeth whitening to get your smile photo ready.
Before you choose a teeth whitening solution, there are a few important things you need to know:
Before you decide to whiten, it’s a good idea to visit our Highlands Ranch dental office, Cottonwood Dental Group, for a thorough cleaning and exam. It’s a good idea to treat any existing problems with your teeth and gums before you whiten(such as cavities). You’ll want to be sure there are no unseen dental problems needing treatment. Additionally, Dr. DeLapp and Dr. Parsons, can help you choose the best whitening solution for your specific goals and desires.

3. At home whitening: our team at Cottonwood Dental Group, will take custom models to make precise whitening trays that you can whiten at home at your convience.
According to the American Dental Association, “A thorough oral examination, performed by a licensed dentist, is essential to determine if bleaching is an appropriate course of treatment. The dentist and patient together can determine the most appropriate treatment.”
Is teeth whitening safe?
YES! The active whitening ingredient in most whitening treatments is usually hydrogen peroxide, which is considered to be safe.
If you decide that at home whitening is the right choice for you, please consult with our team on the right amount of whitening gels to use in the custom trays. Over filling your trays with whitening solution could irritate your gums or cause tooth sensitivity. Professional bleaching solutions are stronger than over-the-counter options, meaning you can achieve a whiter, more stunning smile in less time.
We do not recommend the use of whitening products if you are pregnant or nursing.
