Bright, white teeth can make you feel more confident and give you an extra boost of self-esteem. Plus, having whiter teeth is an affordable way to instantly improve the appearance of your smile. Let’s explore some of the benefits of getting your teeth whitened.

The Benefits Of Professional Teeth Whitening
If you’ve ever tried a store-bought whitening kit, you know that it’s not always as effective as it claims to be. Professional teeth whitening done at the dentist office in Federal Way can provide far better results. In fact, in-office teeth whitenings can lighten your teeth up to eight shades in a single session! It’s also much safer than over-the-counter options since dentists use special gels and lasers to help break down stains on the enamel and brighten your pearly whites. Plus, they’ll check for any underlying issues like cavities or gum disease before beginning any treatment.

What Causes Teeth Discoloration?
Teeth discoloration can be caused by many different factors including aging, smoking and drinking coffee or tea. Certain medications can also cause tooth staining, especially if they contain tetracycline antibiotics. Fortunately, professional whitening treatments are specially formulated to help remove all types of discoloration from your teeth so that you don’t have to worry about uneven results or spots that won’t go away with store-bought kits.

Maintaining Your Results
To help maintain your newly whitened smile, be sure to brush after every meal and floss regularly to remove food particles from between your teeth where they may become lodged and cause further staining. Avoiding foods like berries which are known to stain teeth is also a good idea if you want to keep your smile looking its best for longer periods of time. Additionally, avoid sugary drinks like soda and instead opt for water or unsweetened tea when possible as these beverages are less likely to stain your enamel over time.

A bright, white smile is a beautiful asset and impacts your overall appearance. Not only will you see a noticeable difference in the shade of your teeth right away but in-office teeth whitening will also last much longer than any store-bought kits could provide! However, if you are interested in an at-home teeth whitening product, our office also offers professional grade at-home teeth whitening products that providing safe and effective results for long-term smile maintenance.

  • Susan C.

    I absolutely LOVE Dr. Nguyen! She was kind, compassionate, and exactly what I need in a dentist! She made me feel comfortable right away and genuinely cared about me as a person, AND the health of my teeth!

  • Terry H.

    From the time my husband and I walked in the door to walking out it was absolutely amazing!! The care from the receptionist to the technician to the dentist was without a doubt the most professional caring understanding staff. I am not one who enjoys the dentist but they made it so that I was very relaxed and look forward to going again.

  • Kyle G.

    Top of the line customer service from the front desk to the dental chair. Really happy with not only the doctor, but her assistant and everyone that worked there. The cleaning was expertly done, all photos and decisions were thoughtfully explained and I learned new things about my teeth that I did not know before.

  • Teo T.

    AMAZING! The best dentist I have ever been to! I felt well taken care of. I was greeted right when I walked in. The Center is very clean. Dr. Nguyen and her staff are very nice and they pay attention to detail to make sure you get the best dental care! I would definitely recommend to anyone who needs dental care to come to this place for excellent service.
