Teeth Whitening Services in Twin Falls, ID

Millions of people complain of dulled or yellowed teeth that take away from their smiles. Discolored teeth can be associated with poor hygiene, but they are also associated with old age and frailty of the teeth, which can be caused by a few different things.

Professional teeth whitening treatments make it easier to achieve a bright smile, sometimes in just one treatment. The treatment works by treating the teeth with peroxide-based solutions and activating the solutions to release oxygen ions. These oxygen ions flood your teeth and break down interior and exterior staining to achieve a bright look. This bleaching process is extremely effective and safe while causing little to no discomfort.

We offer two options for teeth whitening: in-office teeth whitening and take-home teeth whitening.

Frequently Asked Questions About Teeth Whitening

  • What are the benefits of teeth whitening?

    Teeth whitening brightens your smile, which can raise confidence and help you appear healthier and more energetic. This can go a long way in improving your overall appearance and can sometimes be achieved in just one treatment, though maintenance is required to maintain that appearance.

    A major benefit of professional teeth whitening treatments, compared to over-the-counter methods, is your ability to achieve the same results faster and for the same price. The upfront cost is one of the most common causes of hesitation in our patients surrounding teeth whitening. The fact is that compared to months of over-the-counter treatments with weaker solutions, the price for one highly effective treatment and instructions on at-home care come out to about the same.

    We offer two options to help whiten your teeth, and we are happy to help you choose the best one for you, even if that means pointing you to over-the-counter products to try first. We match the need to the product because we recognize that all our patients are different.

  • How do I whiten my teeth at home?

    If you’re looking for a teeth whitening remedy without coming to the dentist, there are a few simple things you can try at home, like brushing with baking powder, using hydrogen peroxide to brush or rinse (cut the peroxide in half so you are using a 1.5% solution and not a 3% solution, which is common for over-the-counter), brushing or rinsing with apple cider vinegar, eating more fruits and vegetables, limiting foods that stain your teeth such as soda, coffee, and wine, limiting your sugar intake and building habits to support daily brushing and flossing.

  • Does teeth whitening damage teeth?

    No, teeth whitening does not damage your teeth and is completely safe. Teeth whitening can cause temporary increased sensitivity, but with proper oversight and instructions and a desensitizing toothpaste, it is easy to reduce or eliminate that side effect. We recommend patients use sensitivity-formulated toothpaste before, during, and after treatment. Sometimes, we also recommend fluoride treatments to help strengthen enamel.
