The Path to Smile Enlightenment

Teeth Whitening ChattanoogaBright, white teeth project an aura of health and charisma. If genetics, medication, drinks like coffee and tea, or other circumstances have decreased the luster of your teeth, teeth whitening treatments available at our Chattanooga practice can help you.  We offer the Opalescence® whitening system, a simple, fully customized take-home treatment that can give you a dazzlingly white smile in as little as a week. Dr. Armstrong approaches cosmetic dentistry as an art form, and he will tailor a treatment specifically to your needs to achieve a brighter smile that looks natural and attractive. If you are dissatisfied with the shade of your teeth, contact our Chattanooga office to learn how our teeth whitening treatment can give you a smile you'll love to share.

Candidates for Teeth Whitening

Virtually anyone with all their permanent teeth who would like a brighter, more dazzling smile is a candidate for teeth whitening. And because our treatment achieves incredible results in a relatively short amount of time, it's a fantastic treatment for brides- and grooms-to-be, or anyone who needs to look their best for an upcoming event. Teeth whitening is also recommended to patients considering a porcelain veneer. Veneers are custom-designed to fit the shape and color of your smile. Therefore, you can achieve an even more dramatic cosmetic enhancement by whitening your teeth before having a veneer placed. 

The Opalescence® Method

Your journey to a brighter smile begins with a visit to our office, where Dr. Armstrong will take an impression of your mouth. This impression will be used to create a customized bleaching tray. This tray is designed to hold your prescription-strength carbamide peroxide whitening gel and apply it to your teeth, without letting any of the gel migrate to your gums. These whitening gels are available in a variety of strengths, and Dr. Armstrong will prescribe the strength that will best meet your needs. We even offer three different flavors (regular, mint and melon) to make your experience as pleasant as possible! Meanwhile, the gel is available with potassium fluoride, which decreases tooth sensitivity, strengthens enamel, and helps prevent cavities. 

At night, after brushing and flossing, you will place a single dose of whitening gel into the mouthpiece, which you will wear while you sleep. You may see results after just one night of treatment. The full results are typically achieved after one week. 

After Care

Teeth whitening is not a permanent solution, but with proper care, you can make the effects of your treatment last a long time. Quitting tobacco use is always advisable, and it is especially effective in keeping your teeth bright and healthy. If you drink coffee and tea, try and do so in a single session, rather than drinking coffee throughout the day, and brush when you're done. If you drink red wine, don't run straight to your toothbrush afterward, because the acidic properties of wine temporarily weaken tooth enamel. Instead, try chasing your next glass with broccoli or cauliflower, which can gently scrub your teeth, or having a drink of seltzer - as with your rug, seltzer can prevent red wines stains on your teeth!
