Teeth Whitening and Cosmetic Dentistry in Northgate, Serving Greenwood, Ballard, Fremont, Shoreline, Seattle, WA, & Surrounding Areas
Seattle’s Family Dentistry is the right choice for teeth whitening in the Seattle area. We serve patients from all neighborhoods, including Greenwood, Ballard, Fremont, Shoreline, and Northgate, WA. There are many different underlying causes of tooth discoloration. Stained teeth are common among people that utilize tobacco or drink coffee, tea, red wine, and certain sodas regularly. Poor dental hygiene, diet, age, and genetics can also contribute to tooth yellowing or darkening. Gradual staining can reach an unacceptable point as you start to age.
Many years ago, people simply had to live with discoloration, but in the late 1980s, teeth whitening solutions were introduced. At the present time, they are highly advanced, and we provide state-of-the-art teeth whitening for Seattle area patients.
Before teeth whitening begins, we will evaluate your teeth and gums to make sure that you are a suitable candidate. After it has been determined that professional teeth whitening is a good option for you, the procedure can begin. First, we will apply a protective layer of gel or a rubber shield to protect your gums. A custom-crafted tray will be fitted to the contours of your teeth, and the whitening solution will be applied to the inside of the tray.
It will be positioned onto your teeth and remain in place for about 30 minutes. Afterward, you can repeat this procedure from the comfort of your own home. Depending on the extent of the discoloration, the teeth whitening process should take about 2 to 4 weeks in all.
We believe it is important to develop a relationship with our patients, and your comfort level means everything. Many people that are reluctant to go to the dentist due to fears or past negative experiences often have more dental problems. We fully understand this dynamic, and we take our relationships with our patients to heart. Everyone that works here at Seattle’s Family Dentistry is kind, empathetic, and fully committed to the well-being of our neighbors in the Seattle area. You can be absolutely certain that you will feel completely comfortable at all times when you work with our practice.
