Teeth Whitening services offered in Canby OR

Have you noticed your smile is less bright than it used to be? If so, professional teeth whitening can help and is available through the care of Natalie Ballas, DDS, Steven Langford, DMD, and the team at Holly Street Dental in Canby, Oregon. To explore the possibilities, call the office to set up a visit or spend a few moments with the easy online booking tool. 

Why has my smile lost some of its brightness?

Many things can change the color of your teeth, but the aging process is the primary culprit. To understand why, it helps to think about the structure of a human tooth. 

The outermost layer of your teeth is a thin shell of enamel that is naturally white. Just beneath lies a thicker layer of hard tissue called dentin, which is naturally yellow. Over time your enamel thins, revealing more of the yellow dentin beneath. 

Many additional factors can cause or contribute to tooth staining, including:

  • Eating or drinking foods that stain, such as coffee, wine, or berries
  • Excessive exposure to fluoride 
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Using tobacco products
  • Certain medications 
  • Traumatic tooth injury

Regardless of what led your smile to lose some of its sparkle, professional teeth whitening can help.

How does professional teeth whitening work?

In-office professional whitening can boost your smile by several shades in just one visit. When you arrive, Dr. Ballas or Dr. Langford isolates your tongue and other soft tissues before carefully applying a powerful whitening solution to the front surfaces of your teeth. Our practice uses the KöR® brand of whitening, a superior solution that will brighten almost any smile.

Just a short while later, the solution is rinsed away, and you can begin to appreciate your brighter, whiter smile. 

At-home whitening is also available. This method uses custom-fitted trays that fit snugly over the surface of your teeth. Simply apply a thin line of the provided whitening gel inside the trays and wear them for a period of time.

 At-home whitening takes longer than in-office treatments but allows you to control the shade of your smile. When you decide you need a whitening boost, simply use your trays again for a couple of days.

What about over-the-counter teeth whitening products?

Many over-the-counter products promise to whiten your smile. However, none of these options can match the power of whitening solutions only made available to dental professionals. Holly Street Dental proudly offers whitening products by KöR® Whitening. 

Professional teeth whitening allows you to safely and effectively brighten your smile without damaging your teeth or soft tissues. If you’d like more information about what professional teeth whitening can do for you, call Holly Street Dental today to set up your visit. Online booking is also available and is fast and convenient.
