Do you have stained or yellowed teeth? Are you looking for a professional solution to brighten your smile?

Dr. Gregory Hillyard and Dr. Alexandra Monroe use professional teeth whitening, one of the quickest and most economical ways to enhance the appearance of your smile. In-office and take-home teeth whitening can fit even the busiest of schedules. We will meet with you to evaluate your needs and your dental health and to discuss your cosmetic goals before recommending the most suitable option.

Do you have tooth stains that are resistant to teeth whitening products? We offer restorative and cosmetic dental treatments that can provide permanent results. Dental crowns, porcelain veneers, and tooth bonding are all options that can address discolored or stained teeth with beautiful results that will last far longer than teeth whitening.

Benefits of Whitening Teeth Professionally

As compared to over-the-counter whitening systems, professional teeth whitening delivers predictable and noticeable results faster and with little effort. Our team makes sure you get great results from the whitening agents we use without damaging the enamel or irritating the gums. Over-the-counter tooth whiteners advertise that they can create whiter teeth quickly and easily.

However, these whitening strips, toothpaste, and gels cannot provide the same quality of brightness that you would experience from having your teeth whitened by a professional dentist. Some over-the-counter products may even contain chemicals that can cause damage to your teeth and gums.

Before and After Whitening

Over-the-counter products are also designed to be one size fits all. Using drugstore whitening solutions can often lead to an uneven whitening result. It may be blotchy and not take on certain parts of your smile. If you are really interested in having your teeth whitened, it is best to visit a dentist and have the procedure done by a professional.
