Let Your Smile Shine with Teeth Whitening

A young man smiles after his teeth whitening treatmentYour smile is often the feature that others notice first. If your teeth have become discolored or stained, you may feel hesitant to express yourself with confidence. Dr. Timothy Messer of Southwind Dental Care provides both in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments in his Memphis office. Lightening your teeth can make your smile look healthy, rejuvenated, and more beautiful. Learn more or schedule a consultation by contacting us today.

Zoom! In-office Teeth Whitening

Dr. Messer uses the Zoom!â in-office whitening system to dramatically lighten your smile in a single appointment, making this popular treatment a great option for patients with fast-paced lifestyles.

The procedure begins with the placement of a special guard to protect your gums and the soft tissues of your mouth, while isolating the teeth. Next, a hydrogen peroxide whitening gel will be applied to each tooth. A special light is then used to intensify the effect of the bleaching agent. After 15 minutes, the whitening gel is removed, and this process is repeated two more times. In just under an hour, you will see a noticeable difference in the brightness of your teeth.

Take-home Options

Would you prefer to whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home? At Southwind Dental Care, we offer a number of different take-home teeth whitening options. Although there are countless over-the-counter whitening kits available in pharmacies, we can't overemphasize how important it is to choose a dentist-supervised treatment. Over-the-counter options make it difficult to apply the correct amount of bleaching gel, and too much or too little can result in uneven or unsuccessful results.

Whitening your teeth from home involves first visiting our office to be fitted for a customized whitening tray. Once the tray has been fabricated, Dr. Messer will bring you into the office for a consultation. He will provide you with detailed instructions for applying the gel.

Combining Treatments

One of the greatest benefits of teeth whitening is the way it can complement other restorative and cosmetic treatments. Some treatment combinations that deliver amazing results include:

  • Dental crowns and teeth whitening: Dr. Messer restores teeth with dental crowns and uses color-matching technology to ensure the natural appearance of your smile. If you first undergo a teeth whitening treatment, your crowns can be matched to a lighter shade, so you can experience maximum practical and aesthetic results.
  • Orthodontics and teeth whitening: Whether you're just finishing an Invisalignâ treatment or have had orthodontic work done in the past, whitening a straightened smile can make your teeth even more aesthetically pleasing.
  • Smile Makeover : A smile makeover combines several treatments to achieve an overall enhancement, and whitening your teeth is an almost universally essential part of this process.

Schedule a Consultation

If you are interested in a brighter, whiter smile, Dr. Messer and his Southwind Dental Care team can schedule a consultation to help establish which teeth whitening treatment will best suit your needs. Whether you want to see virtually immediate results with Zoom!â in-office care, or enjoy the comforts of home as you whiten, we have the solution for you. Contact us today to make an appointment.
