Teeth Whitening Lexington, KY

Teeth whitening is one of the most economical ways to make over your smile. Get a confidence boost, or prepare for a special occasion with a quick smile makeover. While a teeth whitening treatment alone will not guarantee lasting oral health, the bright white smile you see in the mirror each day can be the inspiration you need to maintain a healthy oral hygiene routine.

Teeth Whitening Treatments in Lexington, KY

A single quick and painless teeth whitening treatment can take years off of your appearance. Dr. Freano offers both in-office teeth whitening and take-home professional teeth whitening, featuring Phillips Zoom! for professional results. Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry services we provide.

Teeth whitening can reduce the gradual darkening of teeth and tooth discoloration that occurs over time. Common reasons why your teeth darken over time include:

  • Coffee and tea consumption
  • Drinking red wine regularly
  • Aging
  • Consuming soda every day
  • Lifestyle choices
  • Tobacco use and smoking
  • Certain medications

Dr. Freano will recommend a professional cleaning (if it has been over 6 months since your last visit) before administering a teeth whitening treatment. He will ensure that your smile makeover is both healthy and beautiful.

Dramatic Results With Zoom! In-Office Teeth Whitening

Quick and painless, the Zoom in-office treatment typically begins with a dental cleaning. Next, Dr. Freano and his staff prepare your mouth for the whitening procedure by isolating the lips and gums. We will apply the proprietary Zoom Whitening gel to the teeth.

Teeth typically become at least six to ten shades whiter – sometimes more! A five-minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure. You will be amazed at the results. In most cases, your teeth will continue to whiten in the first few days following the procedure.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening in Lexington, KY

Some patients choose the convenience of take-home teeth whitening custom trays. Custom-made to fit precisely over your teeth. Dr. Freano will provide instructions on how often and when to apply the professional bleaching products.

Although not as immediate of an effect as an in-office treatment, the Zoom take-home kits will provide noticeable results within a few days. You can maintain results with periodic touch-ups, avoid tobacco products, and refrain from eating dark foods and beverages.

Frequently Asked Questions

Teeth Whitening Lexington KYHow does professional teeth bleaching compare to over-the-counter options?

There are many over-the-counter options, including whitening toothpaste, whitening strips, and gels. For patients who want the best results, professional treatment is still the best choice. Dr. Freano offers teeth whitening systems with custom-fit trays to ensure even whitening of the teeth.

Can I whiten dental restorations such as crowns or dentures with teeth whitening?

No. Unfortunately, dental restorations such as dental crowns, dentures, and porcelain veneers can not be whitened with traditional teeth whitening treatments. Whitening gels or dental lasers do not affect the dental restorations and prosthetics that dentists provide.

Will bleaching cause my teeth to be more sensitive?

One of the more common side effects is temporary tooth sensitivity. Dr. Freano carefully supervises teeth whitening treatments to ensure minimal side effects. The products we use virtually eliminate sensitivity.

How long does whitening last?

The results of teeth whitening services will vary based on each individual. Most patients can expect your treatment to last up to a year or more. Touch-up treatment every four to six months can help extend the results of your treatment. Visiting the dentist regularly and avoiding smoking and dark foods will also help to keep your teeth white and bright.

Will teeth whitening fix deep dark stains?

Dr. Freano will assess your dental health and discuss expected results. Our dentist can address most tooth stains and color changes due to age with a teeth whitening treatment. But there are certain situations where dental veneers or other cosmetic options are necessary to achieve your goals.
