Teeth Whitening

How does professional teeth whitening work?

Whether you have a special event coming up or you simply just want whiter teeth, Dr. Mudd offers professional grade whitening treatments that you can apply safely in the comfort of your own home.

At your whitening treatment, Dr. Mudd fits your custom whitening trays designed from a mold of your teeth. When the trays are ready, you’ll get your whitening gel and take-home kit and be ready to begin the process. But don’t worry, you won’t have to go it alone!

Dr. Mudd will give you detailed instructions explaining how to apply the gel and trays at home and for how long. Dr. Mudd will be available to answer all of your questions and concerns so that you feel confident and comfortable with your treatment.


Are teeth whitening treatments right for me?

Anyone can benefit from whiter teeth. In fact, most of the brilliant white smiles that you see around you — whether it’s a family member, co-worker, friend, or your favorite celebrity or politician — are probably the result of professional teeth whitening.

As one of the first things that people notice when they meet you for the first time, your teeth are ground zero for first impressions — good or bad. Dr. Mudd is dedicated to making sure you feel confident in your own smile.

If your teeth are stained or discolored, or you simply wish they were whiter, you can benefit from teeth whitening. Dr. Mudd will discuss your concerns and goals with you at your appointment and help you find the treatment that’s right for you.


How long does a teeth whitening treatment last?

Results will vary from person to person, but on average, a professional teeth whitening treatment can last for up to three years. Keep in mind that you will still have to take precautions to prevent further staining and discolorations just like with your natural teeth.

This means that the same factors that stain your teeth — smoking, drinking coffee, tea, and red wine, and eating certain foods like dark berries and sauces — can affect how long your whitening treatment will last.

Dr. Mudd will give you detailed and personalized instructions on how to care for your teeth after a whitening treatment, and how to prolong the results for as long as possible.
