Teeth Whitening

Healthy Smiles Dental is pleased to offer several options for lightening the color of your teeth. Teeth whitening is not damaging to your teeth or enamel, and years of stain can be erased with simple treatment. If you have naturally dark colored teeth, they can be made brighter and whiter in most cases. Dr. Kingston uses Venus White professional products, which have been shown to have improved results over other teeth whitening systems that are on the market today. (Heraeus Kulzer donates a portion of sales for all of their Venus White products to support breast cancer research.)

Dr. Kingston's in-office Venus White treatment does not use the hot, blue light to lighten teeth that other systems use. Often, patients who undergo the light-activated whitening treatment experience an elevated level of tooth sensitivity following the procedure. This can last days or weeks. By eliminating the light, which can over-dry the teeth, less tooth sensitivity can be achieved.

Prior to starting tooth whitening, Dr. Kingston will perform an examination of all your teeth to be sure your teeth are healthy and that whitening is right for you. Dr. Kingston may also recommend a regimen of prescription fluoride toothpaste prior to whitening your teeth to reduce the potential for tooth sensitivity.

Take-Home Whitening

Healthy Smiles Dental uses Venus White Pro, a simple method of lightening the teeth that you perform at home. In only 20-30 minutes a day, you can have lighter teeth in about 2 weeks. Dr. Kingston's team begins by making impressions of your teeth. Using this unique mold, we create soft, custom fitting whitening trays for you. You will be shown how to fill these trays with Venus White take-home gel for each at-home whitening treatment. Dr. Kingston's team will give you specific instructions on how to use the trays to attain the best results.

In-Office Whitening

If you're looking a brilliant smile with quick results, you can have whiter teeth in just about an hour and a half with our in-office Venus White Max treatment. Dr. Kingston's team will prepare soft, custom fitting whitening trays, and a trained professional will apply a more concentrated Venus White solution directly to your teeth. Two to four applications are performed in a series until the desired level of whitening has been achieved.

Max Plus Whitening

For the most dazzling results, Dr. Kingston recommends a combination of at-home and in-office whitening that has been proven to whiten even the most stubborn teeth. Dr. Kingston's team will prepare soft, custom fitting whitening trays for you, and you will use them with the Venus White Pro gel at home for two weeks, followed by a 1.5 hour in-office Venus White Max whitening session, and then finish with two more weeks of at home tray use.

For patients selecting Max Plus Whitening at Healthy Smiles Dental, Dr. Kingston includes as a bonus, at no extra charge, two in office Fluoride treatments and complimentary prescription Prevident 5000 toothpaste. Our system of using Fluoride and Prevident toothpaste will help decrease sensitivity both during and after treatment.

Whitening Maintenance

Maintain your brighter, more radiant smile by using your custom whitening trays for at-home touch-ups! You can purchase your Venus White gel refills at Healthy Smiles Dental. (We also have refills of the NiteWhite, DayWhite, and Colgate Whitening products for patients that have used and had success with them.)

Veneers

Do you have dark, undersized or mal-aligned front teeth? Don't want to go through years of orthodontics to straighten your front teeth? Perhaps porcelain veneers would be a great option for you!

Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain facings that bond to your own teeth. Often minimal to no tooth preparation is needed. You can brighten your smile or straighten your teeth in just 2-3 weeks! To schedule a consultation to discuss whether porcelain veneers are the right solution for you, give Dr. Kingston's office a call!

Bonding

Do you have chipped, discolored front teeth? Cosmetic bonding is an inexpensive method to repair shape and esthetics to your front teeth. Dr. Kingston and his team will match the color of your teeth, and bond tooth colored composite to your own teeth to restore the ideal size and shape of your teeth. This conservative technique allows you to maintain as much of your own tooth structure as possible.
