Finally, teeth whitening that really works! The power of professional treatment

Are you frustrated by the lack of results from store-bought products that claim to whiten your teeth? Are you tired of spending money on toothpaste, kits, and other so-called whiteners? At best, they make a subtle and temporary difference in the color of your teeth. At worst, OTC kits can cause irritation and damage to the teeth and delicate supportive tissues.

You are at the right place for teeth whitening that really works! Furthermore, our approach to removing stains at Dentistry at Golden Ridge is safe, comfortable, and personalized to your unique needs, goals, and features. Patients from Golden, Colorado, and beyond seek out the expertise of our dentist, Dr. Jamie Irwin Richard, for treatment that gets their desired results.

Custom care for unique smiles

Each patient has a different starting point; some patients’ teeth may be more stained and yellowed than others. Likewise, each individual we partner with has one-of-a-kind characteristics, like skin tone, which are considered when designing treatment plans that get flattering results. Additionally, some patients with a history of tooth sensitivity may not tolerate certain concentrations of professional whitening gels well. 

Lastly, patients may seek a more subtle and gradual boost to the color of their teeth or a dramatic transformation in the shade of their teeth, as well as near-instantaneous results. Here again, Dr. Richard and the team account for all the factors that can influence the product and method used to bring out or restore the natural brilliance of your teeth.

That word, professional, really makes the difference. As dental professionals at Dentistry at Golden Ridge, we have the knowledge of and access to powerful products designed to break up and lift stain molecules from the teeth. Furthermore, we can customize all steps in the process, including the strength of the whitening gel, how the gel is applied, and how long the gel is in contact with the teeth. In doing so, we tailor treatment to support the most comfortable, safe, risk-free, and efficient experience and the results and level of whitening you are after.

Generally, dentists like Dr. Richard have access to two clinically-proven effective and safe whitening methods. These options are:

  • In-office or chairside bleaching involves applying professional whitening gel to your teeth. The surrounding gums and tissues are protected for your safety, and comfort and to achieve even application of the gel to the teeth. Patients who choose this treatment can whiten their teeth by several shades in one office visit. This method is particularly appealing to those patients who are under a “time crunch” and want to drastically improve the appearance of their smile for an upcoming event.
  • Home bleaching involves making a custom oral appliance or whitening tray to fit your mouth. Filled with whitening gel, the tray slips over your teeth. You wear these trays every day as instructed by your dentist. Some patients may wear their trays for a short time, once daily, for around two weeks. Other patients may be required to wear their trays overnight or for a few hours each day, again for around two weeks. “Wear time” depends on the strength of the whitening gel and your tolerance for stronger, more concentrated gels. Since the trays and the gel are all customized to your needs and characteristics, you avoid the risks of unsightly results, irritation, sensitivity, and even damage associated with off-the-shelf or one-size-fits-all whitening trays. It may be appropriate for patients who desire gradual whitening and more subtle improvements in the appearance of their teeth.

We use the Zoom! system by Philips. This is one of the most well-regarded and popular professional whitening systems available to today’s dentists. Zoom! has an array of both office and take-home whitening options. What is the best option for you? We won’t know for sure until after we sit down with you and evaluate your teeth and smile.
