Teeth Whitening

Having dull or yellowed teeth can make some people hesitant to smile, and decrease their self-confidence in social and professional settings. Alatorre Dental provides safe and sensitivity-friendly teeth-bleaching products that can give you a white, radiant smile to keep you beaming!

Should I Whiten My Teeth?

Teeth whitening is a great and non-invasive option to feel like you have brand-new teeth. Some of our other patients have excitedly reported these benefits of the whitening process:

  • Boosted Confidence: Walk out of our office door adding another great part to your look! Teeth whitening can help you see your smile in a whole new way.
  • Greater Professionalism: Our patients enjoy how whitening helps them better present themselves at work! Level up your LinkedIn look with teeth-whitening tools!
  • Low Cost: Do you want to improve your teeth but would rather not break the bank? Teeth whitening can be a great way to help your teeth cost-effectively.

Why Do Teeth Whitening In the Office?

Nowadays, there are a lot of different teeth whitening kits at grocers that advertise teeth whitening kits on their own. Here’s what makes Alatorre Dental a great decision for teeth whitening techniques as opposed to these options:

  • Custom-Made Treatment: Our office can customize your treatment method based on your measurements, comfort level, and other personal needs.
  • Long-Lasting Treatment: On average, professional dental teeth whitenings tend to last much longer than over-the-counter whitening treatments.
  • Less Work for You: Teeth whitening strictly at home can be a lot more uncomfortable and time-consuming compared to the office.
  • Professional Care: Teamwork makes the dream work! Office treatments make it easy to help manage your health in case something goes awry with your whitening treatment.

The Teeth Whitening Process

Because our patients want quick and noticeable change, we use the most efficient teeth-whitening products in the business. Our sensitivity-free in-office teeth whitening treatment usually takes under one hour to complete with stunning results. If you’d like a whiter smile in an hour or less, then this might be the service for you.

While your teeth are being bleached, you can relax in our office and enjoy a variety of amenities and entertainment. Afterward, of course, you’ll go home with a gorgeous smile. We’ll also tell you how to perform maintenance on your teeth at home using a GLO™ take-home whitening kit.

Take Home Whitening

In addition to your in-office whitening session, our teeth-whitening bundle includes at-home teeth whitening. Unlike many at-home teeth-whitening options, our GLO™ bundle offers light-activated whitening—without trays! This is a user-friendly option that allows you to conveniently maintain your teeth-whitening treatment in the comfort of your own home.

Why Do Teeth Discolor?

Tooth discoloration or staining is common, and can be caused by many things, such as:

  • Aging: As the human body gets older, the enamel on your teeth will inevitably dissolve.
  • Smoking: with the use of nicotine and tobacco comes a brown staining.
  • Colorful Foods and Drinks: You may not be aware, but certain colored foods and beverages like blueberries, coffee, red wine, and even chocolate can discolor your teeth with time.
  • Certain Medications: The use of some vitamins, as well as prescription and over-the-counter drugs like tetracycline, can darken your teeth.

Whitening Sensitive Teeth

You can whiten sensitive teeth! Teeth whitening requires a lot of direct contact, which can make tooth whitening a little bit uncomfortable.

In these cases, be sure to let Dr. Alatorre know about your condition! We are happy to make accommodations to the treatment and during your whitening to help you feel better about the process. We are also happy to offer sedation dentistry to help you feel more comfortable during the procedure.

How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?

Unfortunately, every teeth whitening method is designed to help minimize stains, not eliminate them. However, a quality in-office treatment can help your smile last for as long as possible!

Teeth whitening treatments usually last for about 6 months to 2 years. However, the time varies widely depending on your diet and dental habits.

Brighten Your Smile!

If your teeth are discolored, have no fear! No matter what the cause, our teeth whitening kits can turn yellow and brown to dazzling white. Be proud of your smile and call Alatorre Dental to schedule your appointment here in Las Vegas today!
