What is professional whitening?
Bleaching the teeth is a popular way of brightening the smile quickly and easily while still maintaining safety. Dr. France Chevalier finds that many patients are unhappy with the results they have obtained using over-the-counter bleaching products. Instead, she offers a professional solution with an at-home advantage! Patients can visit the practice to learn about the benefits of using at-home kits, which include custom trays.

Are you a candidate for teeth whitening?
Many patients visit the practice seeking cosmetic solutions such as professional teeth whitening and are unsure if they are a candidate for treatment. Dr. France Chevalier encourages all patients to visit her practice to learn about the ways in which they can enhance their smiles. The best candidates for professional teeth whitening are patients who do not have restorations such as dental crowns, bridges, or veneers. These restorations do not respond to the whitening treatment, causing them to stand out after whitening is completed. Patients serious about their whitening results may want to ask about the replacement of these restorations once they have brightened their smile. The new restorations can be made to match their new smile, ensuring a complete transformation! Candidacy can be discussed during the dental evaluation and consultation visit.
Is teeth whitening safe?
Dr. France Chevalier ensures that all treatments available in her practice are not only effective and affordable but also safe. Patients who use over-the-counter products may experience sensitivity, and if the products are not used properly, they may burn gum tissues. This is not the experience patients have at the practice of Dr. France Chevalier. Patients are educated by their dentist on how to use their trays before they are sent home with their whitening kits. This reduces the risk of problems that may otherwise be associated with misuse of the products.
What causes teeth to become discolored?
It is important for patients to learn about the cause of their discoloration, so they can reduce their chance of yellowing their teeth in the future. Some discoloration is natural and caused by genetics. Patients are sometimes born with teeth that are not nearly as white as others. In some situations, staining is caused by habits such as smoking or drinking of teas, coffees, and red wines. Knowing the cause of discoloration can help patients maintain a brighter smile.
