If the appearance of your smile is a major cosmetic concern, City of Oaks Dental in Raleigh, NC can help you tackle this common concern with professional-grade teeth whitening. Although there are various supermarket whitening alternatives, we offer a product that has proven to be superior to any over-the-counter treatments currently available. Our whitening services, highly recommended by leading dentist Dr. Vivian Throop, can whiten your teeth by quite a few shades, helping you keep your beautiful results for much longer than alternative products. We use professional-strength gels that truly do the job, reaching beneath the surface of the teeth to remove deep stains, instead of consumer-level solutions that just scrape the surface (quite literally) and provide a brighter shade of yellow at best. With the iTero Element™ 5D intraoral scanner, our digital technology replaces traditional impressions and instead digitally scans for whitening trays.

Bright white teeth can give you a beautiful smile and improve self-esteem. With either in-office or at-home teeth whitening available at City of Oaks Dental, pearly white teeth and a more radiant grin are attainable. Benefits of teeth whitening treatments at our Raleigh, NC office include:

  • Teeth can become a few shades whiter
  • Reversing surface stains
  • Fixing significantly discolored teeth
  • Safe for your teeth and gums
  • Treatments are typically fast
  • No discomfort
  • More effective than over-the-counter whitening treatments
  • You can get multiple treatments to maintain your results
  • Can be administered in the comfort of your own home

What to expect for your teeth whitening treatments depends on the process chosen by Dr. Throop. Our clinic provides a few treatments for effective and professional teeth whitening so the method chosen for you will be determined after a consultation to discuss your aesthetic goals. We also take your lifestyle into consideration. In most circumstances, our in-office teeth whitening treatments can be carried out in under an hour through the application of a prescription-strength whitening gel, along with the assistance of a light system that immediately cures and whitens the teeth several shades. At-home kits are equally effective but may provide a more subtle result over a few months.

Whitening can create fast and dramatic improvements to your teeth, and possibly, your total appearance. If you want a brighter, more radiant smile but are unsure whether over-the-counter or professional options are the appropriate solution, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Throop to explore the benefits and disadvantages of each procedure before you make your decision.

I’m an anxious patient when it comes to the dentist and city of oaks has the friendliest, most attentive, gentle staff. Jodi handled my annual cleaning and she talked me through every step and always asked how I was doing throughout the entire process. Highly recommend!

My family and I have received excellent care from Dr. Troop and her very competent team since she first took over the practice from our old dentist, Dr. Makely. Both my husband and I have experienced dental issues after-hours, and Dr. Thrips always responded quickly and with concern. We both highly recommend City of Oaks Dental.
