Professional Teeth Whitening

Dr. Lindsay Essenmacher, your cosmetic dentist in Northeast Heights, NM, and her team want you to have a smile you can be proud of, and professional teeth whitening is a great starting point.

Additionally, professional teeth whitening can set the stage for other cosmetic dentistry options, providing you with a fantastic outcome.

Learn Whether Professional Teeth Whitening is Right for You

Before any cosmetic dentistry gets the greenlight, Dr. Essenmacher makes sure your teeth and gums are in shape for the option you’ve chosen and that the treatment will provide the desired outcome.

Considerations include the health of your teeth and gums and any prosthetics. If you have a dental crown placed, for example, the whitening product will not lighten this restoration.

In many cases, she recommends teeth cleaning before whitening. This helps our product lift away stains better because the plaque and tartar are cleared from your tooth enamel.

If you’re a candidate for professional teeth whitening, we take impressions of your teeth, create custom trays with the results, and provide you with prescription-grade whitening gel.

You take your kit home and whiten on your own time. This convenient option has long been a patient favorite.

Why You Should Whiten Your Teeth Under the Directions of a Dentist

There are many over-the-counter whitening products on the market, but the ingredients may not be safe for your enamel. You could end up with lingering tooth sensitivity and results that are unflattering or uneven.

Also, over-the-counter products do not lighten restorations, and they can even do damage. If you’ve undergone cosmetic dental bonding in Albuquerque, NM, for example, you may damage the resin material.   

Dr. Essenmacher and her team always want you to be safe and enjoy an excellent teeth whitening experience.

Professional Teeth Whitening as Part of a Smile Makeover

With multiple treatments, we typically recommend starting with teeth cleaning, followed by teeth whitening treatments.

If you choose veneers in Northeast Heights, NM, you’ll note that they reflect light, and it is always a good idea to have a lighter tooth underneath your veneer to avoid the darker color shining through.

If you’re considering restoring missing teeth as part of your makeover, whitening your smile prior to tooth replacement allows you to choose lighter-colored implant restorations or dental bridges in Albuquerque, NM.

Our cosmetic dentistry options include:

  • Dental veneers for a symmetrical smile
  • Tooth-colored restorations
  • Cosmetic dental bonding
  • Tooth replacement
