Teeth Whitening

teeth whitening Summerlin, Las Vegas, and Henderson Nevada

White teeth often means good health and excellent oral hygiene. As a Las Vegas cosmetic dentist, Dr. Matthew Wilson offers great teeth whitening treatments that can be completed in one office visit or spread out over several visits depending on your desired results.

There are a couple of options for teeth whitening. You can have your teeth whitened in our dental office or at home using an at-home teeth-whitening kit that you can buy from our office.

Sometimes, stains on your teeth may be too deep in the enamel and dentin for teeth whitening to provide the results you hope for. For these cases, Inspire Dental of Summerlin offers more lasting options for beautiful, whiter teeth.

Teeth Whitening at Our Las Vegas Dental Office

Teeth whitening treatments offered at our Summerlin dental office are the most effective and quickest way to whiten and brighten your teeth. This professional whitening option is perfect for anyone with a busy schedule and anyone who wishes to have the whitest smile possible in the fastest manner.

In-office whitening treatments involve applying a whitening gel over each tooth. A special light activates the gel, allowing the whitening solution to penetrate each layer of the tooth as it removes difficult stains. The procedure takes about an hour with additional time needed for preparation and application of the gel.

At-Home Teeth Whitening Kits

Teeth whitening kits are a way to whiten your teeth without leaving your home. The kit comes with the whitening gel and custom fit trays that match the shape of your teeth. The trays need to be worn for about an hour each day. A detailed set of instructions come with the kit, and you are more than welcome to contact Dr. Wilson with any questions or to schedule follow-up visits.

Why choose professional teeth whitening

Walk into any grocery store or big box store, and you will see a ton of teeth whitening kits, different kinds of whitening toothpaste, and mouth rinses. But, do they really work? Advertisements for all of these over-the-counter whitening treatments promise to brighten your teeth shades whiter, but they don’t work for most people. Instead, they end up wasting their time and money.

A professional teeth whitening treatment not only offers the best results but is also safer. Professional teeth whitening treatments can be designed to fit your unique whitening needs. Also, the at-home kits use custom trays that hold the whitening gel in place, which means less chance that the gel will touch your gums or be swallowed. Following your professional teeth whitening procedure, we can also apply a sensitivity-reducing gel to safeguard against any potential sensitive teeth.

Why do my teeth stain?

Teeth become stained from a many different reasons. From foods we eat and beverages that we drink to certain medicines we take, all cause teeth to stain. Teeth becoming stained are even part of the natural aging process. To reduce the chance of your teeth becoming stained, try to limit or avoid coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco (all forms). At the very least, remember to rinse your mouth out with water after consuming these beverages or foods that typically cause teeth to stain.
