Who doesn’t want a whiter, brighter smile? As we age, the color of our teeth naturally darkens. Exposure to dark colored foods and beverages or tobacco can leave teeth stained and discolored. Dr. Gauthier provides his patients with state of the art professional teeth whitening options that are both safe and effective. The teeth whitening treatments offers at Apex Dental can give you remarkable improvement in the brightness and whiteness of your teeth.
Professional teeth whitening can effectively treat tooth discoloration caused by age, certain lifestyle habits and some medical concerns. People are instantly attracted to a white, bright smile. Whether you choose to have your teeth whitened in-office or at-home, trust the professional care that Dr. Gauthier provides with products that are proven safe and effective.
There are many teeth whitening products on the market today that cost less than professional teeth whitening. It is highly recommended to visit a dentist office for whitening treatment though. It allows for the dentist to monitor the process to ensure the safety of the patient while using strong chemical agents around soft oral tissues. Apex Dental only uses carefully selected professional tooth whitening brands that yield maximum results with minimal sensitivity to teeth and gums. Using a dentist to whiten your teeth will produce the best result.

Teeth Whitening What to Expect
We offer both in office and take home options to suit your needs and your budget. Both options offer results far superior to over the counter options readily available. Dr. Gauthier will evaluate your dental health and determine the cause of your discolored teeth to ensure that your expected results and cosmetic goals can be achieved with a teeth whitening treatment.
Immediate Results With Zoom® Teeth Whitening
Dr. For patients seeking immediate results, the Zoom® chair side teeth whitening is the best option. In just one visit, you can improve the whiteness of your teeth by up to 8 shades. The Zoom® teeth whitening system is fast and convenient with low sensitivity. The results are long lasting and they have been proven safe and effective.
At-home Teeth Whitening
Another option is professional, at-home teeth whitening. Popular among patients because of its affordability and at-home convenience, this system utilizes custom made trays and professional quality tooth whitening gel. In about one to two weeks, you will see results. Unlike over the counter teeth whitening options, the professional at-home systems are made to fit perfectly with your teeth ensuring that you whiten all of your teeth and designed for maximum comfort and minimized tooth and gum sensitivity.
Other Whitening Options
Some patients have stains on their teeth that will not respond to professional teeth whitening. In this situation, Dr. Gauthier may recommend a more permanent option such as porcelain veneers, tooth bonding or dental crowns. With CEREC Technology, Apex Dental can give you porcelain veneers or dental crowns in just one visit for an instantly brighter smile
No. Dentures can not be whitened with Zoom Whitening treatments. Dentures and other artificial dental prosthetics can not be whitened with products like whitening gels and dental lasers meant for natural tooth enamel. You can however try removing surface stains from your dentures at home with a mix of baking soda and water. Call our office for tips.
Teeth whitening can fix teeth with surface stains. Zoom teeth whitening can not fix deep discoloration due to medications or other issues. For this reason, we can offer cosmetic dentistry to hide the imperfections that are not causing functional issues. Porcelain veneers are a great option for gray teeth.
No. Your teeth become sensitive after teeth whitening because fresh tooth enamel is exposed after surface stains have been removed. It takes a little time for your teeth to get used to the new atmosphere. Tooth sensitivity after whitening is only temporary.
