Tooth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.
Having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients and there are a number of ways to achieve a brighter smile. The most popular method is using the Zoom whitening system that can quickly and dramatically whiten teeth using a light-activated acceleration process. Callahan & Klein Dental is proud to offer this advanced teeth whitening system at our Lakewood, CO office.
Zoom tooth whitening treatment only works on natural tooth enamel so it is important to evaluate replacement of any veneers, implants, crowns, etc. If necessary, the replacement of any restorations can be done after whitening so they will match the newly bleached teeth.
Tooth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up may be needed every several years, and more often if you drink coffee, red wine or you smoke.

Reasons for professional tooth whitening:

  • Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development).
  • Normal wear of outer tooth layer.
  • Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).
  • Stained or discolored teeth due to ageing or food intake.
  • Improvement in your self confidence and self esteem.
  • A brighter smile will encourage good oral health habits.

What does tooth whitening with trays involve?

This type of tooth whitening usually requires two visits to your Lakewood, CO dental professionals. At the first appointment, impressions (molds) will be made of your teeth to fabricate custom, clear plastic trays.
At your second appointment, you will try on the trays for proper fit, and adjustments will be made if necessary. The trays are worn with a special whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a couple of weeks depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening. It is normal to experience tooth sensitivity during the time you are whitening your teeth, but it will subside shortly after you have stopped bleaching.
You will receive care instructions for your teeth and trays, and be encouraged to visit your Lakewood dentist regularly to help maintain a beautiful, healthy, white smile.
