It is our goal to give you a smile that makes you confident and happy to show your teeth. If whitening improves your confidence, we are glad to help.

How Does It Work?

Teeth whitening is a simple procedure but needs to be done with the proper materials for safety. During treatment, our dentist will clean your teeth and then place a shield over the gums to protect the soft tissues. We paint a peroxide solution on the surface of your teeth and then use a special light.

The light is pointed at your teeth and breaks down the peroxide into its base components, including pure oxygen. The oxygen penetrates your dental enamel and removes stains left behind by soda, coffee, and other activities.

For maximum effectiveness, we perform teeth whitening in 3 rounds of 15 minutes. In the end, your teeth will be up to 8 shades lighter than before.

Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

When performed by a skilled dentist, teeth whitening is perfectly safe and effective. We recommend you avoid using kits bought online or through social media because many of the ingredients are not regulated and tested.

If you would like to perform whitening at home, our office has kits available with comprehensive instructions and ingredients tested for safety.

Who Can Get It?

Our teeth whitening near you is available for most of our patients in Rifle, CO. However, we recommend it for individuals who are above 16 and do not have a medical condition which caused the discoloration. Unfortunately, whitening is not effective if your teeth have become discolored from medication or an issue like fluorosis.
