If your teeth are stained from coffee, wine, smoking or aging, then you no doubt feel self-conscious about your smile. Everyone loves a bright, dazzling white smile and nothing beats the convenience of going to the dentist for a teeth whitening treatment. In-office procedures include gels, power bleaching and laser whitening – each one is fast and more effective than at-home kits. If your teeth are yellow and you are less than satisfied with the look of them, why not invest in your smile? These local dentists offer a variety of options to help you get the smile you want.

The professionals at Arden Dental Care offer the latest techniques in cosmetic dentistry and teeth whitening. There are times when gel treatments or bleaching do not effectively remove stains, making veneers a great option. Thin strips of porcelain are bonded to the surface of teeth to create a brilliant, white smile. Similar to veneers, Lumineers are contact-lens thin “smile shapers” that are bonded to teeth. Porcelain veneers can run as much as $2,500 per tooth but will last 10 to 25 years and won’t stain over time. Payment plans are available.
