Teeth Whitening in West Seattle, WA
West Seattle Family Dentistry
At West Seattle Family Dentistry, we make custom teeth whitening trays that allow you to lighten you teeth in the comfort of your own home.
Your teeth naturally darken over time. The outer layer of your tooth, the enamel, gets thinner from normal wear and lets the inner layer, the dentin, show through. This inner layer is naturally darker and more yellow than the enamel you are used to seeing.
West Seattle Family Dentistry uses carbamide peroxide to lighten this inner layer. Whitening toothpaste and brushes will remove surface stains, but have trouble getting deeper into the tooth. A 30 min application of teeth whitening gel is the best way to achieve long-term results. However, most people notice a gradual darkening after initial bleaching and you will want to touch up your smile every 12-18 months.
