Whitening Your Smile With Powerful & Fast Results

Tooth whitening is the No. 1 requested and performed cosmetic dental procedure. Tooth whitening is a procedure that lightens teeth up to nine shades by removing stains and discoloration.

A thin coating forms on your teeth throughout the day, which attracts stains. The tooth's enamel contains pores that hold stains. Cavities need to be treated before teeth are whitened because the whitening solution can penetrate decay and reach inner areas of the tooth, which can cause tooth sensitivity. Receding gums can cause roots to become exposed. Whitening will not work on exposed tooth roots, because roots do not have an enamel layer. Whitening also does not work on tooth restorations, such as crowns or veneers.

Whitening can be done in the dental office or at home.

Powerful Home Whitening Kits

The most common type of home tooth whitening involves placing a gel-like whitening solution, which usually contains hydrogen peroxide, in a tray that resembles a night guard or mouth guard. Over-the-counter mouthpieces are unlikely to fit correctly and can cause gum irritation if the whitening agent seeps out. The tray is then placed over the teeth for a certain period of time, anywhere from an hour or two to overnight.

Single Visit Whitening vs. Home Whitening

Today, whitening your teeth can be done using a variety of products and services. Do-it-yourself at-home whitening kits are available at your local supermarket and are an effective way to whiten teeth, but they require frequent applications for weeks at a time to achieve a whiter smile. Our whitening system uses a specialized concentrated whitening gel that you can't find in supermarkets and is activated by using a powerful whitening light that is also not available to the general public. Single-visit whitening is done in the dental office and only requires one dental visit compared to nightly whitening applications from an at-home whitening kit.

Any form of teeth whitening can achieve great results. Single-visit whitening enables those with time-sensitive occasions such as a wedding, reunion, etc. to whiten their teeth quickly. However, home whitening is an extremely affordable whitening method you can do yourself!

I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Andrea Ball and Brooke. They did a wonderful job of correcting my issue and I'm couldn't be more happy with the service and care they have consistently provided me. They always make going to the dentist a great experience and they truly care about their patients. I highly recommend Ball Dentistry to anyone.

Had braces twice because of a mutant tooth, vacations always meant long trips to have them tightened and pain, so 40 years later I still have a problem with most dentists. Read reviews for Ball Dentistry and had to switch. They are wonderful! Major excavation to deep clean below the gum line was painless and we have a plan for long-term health of my teeth. First time I can say I know what to do every day and I am looking forward to my next visit to Dr. Rachel and Ball Dentistry East staff!!

My daughter (age 13) had a tooth extracted. It was our first experience with Ball Dentistry and they were AWESOME! They helped her feel so at ease and we were so appreciative. My daughter said ‘they were so nice’. She didn’t have a great experience at our last dentist office and I’m so glad we made the switch. Thank you Dr. Rachel and Jessica!

In-Office Whitening Procedure

  1. Preparation - We start the whitening process by covering your lips and gums, leaving only your teeth exposed. At this time, we can usually estimate how white your new smile will be by matching your teeth with a whitening shade and estimate approximately up to eight shades whiter from here.
  2. Application - Next, a high-strength whitening gel is applied to the surfaces of your teeth. This special gel is specifically designed to work with the whitening light.
  3. Whitening - The whitening light is placed directly in front of your teeth to maximize exposure to the gel. The special light activates the gel, which gently penetrates the outermost (enamel) layer of your teeth, breaking up stains and discoloration during the process.
  4. Smile - Smile with confidence as you leave the office with a brighter, whiter smile!
