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

While contemplating the pros and cons of professional-strength vs. store-bought whitening solutions, you should think about what you are really attempting to do. If your smile has been white your whole life and is only recently starting to become discolored, a grocery store-purchased product could create great but temporary results. If your teeth have deeper discoloration, you might be a good candidate to receive professional-grade teeth whitening at City of Oaks Dental.

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.

City of Oaks manages to make a visit to the dentist pleasant! Their entire staff is very welcoming and thorough. I have learned a lot about my dental health but also holistically about what causes my snoring and grinding. They make it clear that they care about your entire wellbeing as a patient.

I have been going to City of Oaks Dental for a handful of years and they’ve always provided excellent care and service! The team is great. I leave each visit more confident with my smile following the dental work (Invisalign, etc.) and their helping to keep my oral hygiene in check! They also have a beautiful new office. 😁
