At Lane Family Dental, we offer professional teeth whitening with in-office and take-home systems, so you can feel confident about your dazzling smile! After years of consuming coffee, wine, and tea, a person’s teeth will start to discolor. Using tobacco makes stains even worse. Not only are yellow or dingy teeth embarrassing, but trying to resolve stains with over-the-counter whitening products can produce less-than-desirable results and cause frustration. Dr. Jason Lane’s teeth whitening system is strong, safe, and overseen by Dr. Lane himself, so you can trust the procedure, as well as the results.
Book an appointment today so that we can give you a vibrant smile with professional-grade teeth whitening, in our office or with a convenient take-home kit. Call Lane Family Dental in Wasilla, AK at (907) 373-2200.
Why go to the dentist for whitening if over-the-counter systems are available? Good question and we have a great answer! Not all tooth stains are alike, and whitening systems vary greatly. Tooth discoloration ranges from minor to major and can be topical or embedded. Traditional chemical whitening, or bleaching, works well on topical stains. Embedded stains may never respond to whitening, but they can be addressed with cosmetic restorations, like bonding or veneers.
At your cosmetic consultation, Dr. Lane will determine the type of dental stains your teeth present, how significant they are, and the most effective method for erasing them. The chemical whitening systems he uses contain a higher percentage of active ingredient than over-the-counter treatments, so they’re stronger than anything you can purchase in a pharmacy or by mail.
We offer two distinct teeth whitening options: KoR Whitening and Opalescence.
KoR is a potent treatment that incorporates a few strategically-scheduled whitening sessions in our office with a series of home treatments, for optimal results. We’ve seen KoR erase dark stains that didn’t respond to other chemical whitening products. You’ll notice results after the first application, and enamel will continue to whiten throughout treatment.
Opalescence is the home whitening system Dr. Lane prescribes. Patients receive custom-fitted dental trays and a strong, safe chemical potion. Used as directed, Opalescence can produce stunning results that rival in-office treatments. Keep the whitening trays and order additional whitening gel from our office to touch up your smile whenever you like.
A study conducted by the AACD in 2004 revealed that an overwhelming 99.7% of American believe a smile is an important social asset, and 96% believe an attractive smile makes a person more appealing to members of the opposite sex. It’s no wonder people want a beautiful smile.
The American Academy of Cosmetic Dental reported that teeth whitening was the most popular cosmetic procedure in 2015, and that percentage included a 29% increase over the previous year. Now, years later, whitening remains an extremely popular treatment because it makes patients look healthier and younger, and it’s a non-invasive procedure that takes mere minutes (in most cases).
