In-Office Teeth Whitening

teeth whitening in kirkland Store-Bought Products May Not Be Effective

We understand that people are always looking for ways to save money and still look good, and you've probably eyed the whitening strips, gels, and other products on store shelves and wondered how effective they are. 

The quick answer to this is – compared to professional teeth whitening, store-bought products are not very effective. 

So why is this? 

Essentially, it comes down to the fact that professional whitening treatments are customized to your needs and use a more powerful whitening ingredient (which is safe to do because you're under the care of your Kirkland dentist, Dr. Jen Kim). With professional in-office whitening, you can have a much brighter and whiter smile in just one session. With over-the-counter products, you are looking at six weeks (or longer) to achieve a lesser result. 

We Create The Perfect Application for You

We apply the whitening gel to your teeth precisely, which ensures even whitening and no spillage (great news for sensitive gums and lips), and we can choose a strength that is right for the results you want. Despite what is often portrayed in TV comedies, you can't "over whiten" your teeth; your results will always look natural and attractive. 

We can start off your whitening treatment with a cleaning, too, to make sure that no plaque or tartar gets in the way of your results.

If you want an easy way to upgrade your looks, you should consider starting with your smile. Your teeth play a significant role in how people perceive your overall appearance, and even a small change can make a big difference to your looks.

  • Sparklier
  • Bigger

At Jen Kim Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, you can count on your dentist in Kirkland, WA to fix problems like yellow teeth and crooked teeth. We offer treatments such as professional teeth whitening, crowns for teeth, tooth-colored restorations, and dental veneers to help you improve your smile. 

Cosmetic dentistry can help you feel:

  • Younger
  • More self-confident
  • Happier with your smile
  • Unafraid to show your teeth in public or have your picture taken

These feelings, in turn, can help you improve your life in ways you might not expect. A more beautiful smile can help you perform better at work or land a new job, have greater confidence in the dating world, and even inspire you to make other changes to your health or your appearance.

Sensitive teeth can make teeth whitening with over-the-counter products completely out of the question. This sometimes leaves patients wondering if whitening their teeth is possible at all.

We have good news, though!

Many professional teeth whitening options have added desensitizing ingredients to make it easier for everyone – even those with sensitive teeth – to enjoy whiter, brighter teeth!

In addition to making it possible for people with sensitivity, professional products have a number of advantages over OTC whitening kits. Your whitening treatment will be customized for your needs so that you can reach your whitening goals safely and comfortably. Plus, you have the added benefit of professional guidance every step of the way.

Whitening is one of the cheapest and simplest ways to improve the appearance of your smile, and our patients are often amazed at the transformation that occurs just from whitening alone! Of course, if you do have other aesthetic concerns that you’d like to address, we are happy to discuss additional cosmetic dentistry options as well.
