Teeth Whitening in Shawnee, KS

Do you look in the mirror feeling dissatisfied with your smile? Is it because your teeth are yellow, gray, or even brown from stains that just won’t come off? If so, then you can see us at Dental Care Shawnee for comprehensive teeth whitening near you in Shawnee, KS.

What Is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a process where stains are removed from your dental enamel, creating a brighter smile. During the process, we clean your teeth and then apply a peroxide solution. The peroxide breaks down, releasing pure oxygen, which lifts stains, leaving behind clean enamel.

The treatment takes as little as an hour and can leave your smile up to 8 shades brighter than it was before.

If you do not want in-office care, we also offer several at-home treatments you can do yourself, which have been approved for safety. It is safer to use our at-home whitening kit rather than one bought off of the internet because the ingredients have been tested and approved.

How Long Does Whitening Last?

When you whiten your teeth, you are eliminating surface stains that build up over time. These stains are caused by your behaviors and habits. The longevity of your whitening is, therefore, directly affected by your personal behaviors.

To maximize how long your whitening lasts, avoid the following:

  • Drinking coffee, tea, brown soda, and similar colored beverages
  • Chewing tobacco
  • Smoking substances of any kind
  • Not brushing your teeth on a regular basis

If you do so, your treatment can last up to three years.

Is Whitening Painful?

The process of teeth whitening is not painful and will not damage your teeth. The only potential side effect you might experience is minor sensitivity to heat and cold for 24 to 72 hours after the treatment. If it lasts longer, please contact us for an exam.
