Teeth Whitening – Conway, SC

Lift Stubborn Stains, Transform Your Smile

The last time you saw your smile in a photo or in the reflection, did you notice that your teeth were starting to yellow? This could be the result of the natural aging process, frequent coffee consumption, or certain medications. Whatever the root of the problem is, there is some good news: Dr. Tommy Murph offers both in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments at our Conway dental office! If you want to learn more, keep reading or schedule a consultation with us!

Who is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Although teeth whitening is suitable for a wide variety of patients, there are some that aren’t candidates – at least not right away. For example, if you have a cavity or another oral health problem that needs to be addressed, then we will need to restore your oral health first. Additionally, if your dental discoloration is permanent, then teeth whitening may not deliver the results you desire, which means we need to explore the other cosmetic dental services we offer. With all that said, in most cases, patients who are unhappy with the shade of their teeth are candidates for teeth whitening.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

At American Dental Care, we offer in-office and take-home treatments with Polar Teeth Whitening. To learn a little more about what you can expect with each, read on!

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Take-home teeth whitening treatments typically take two weeks. After we provide you with everything you need – from the brightening gels to the trays – you’ll return home and use them as instructed. One of the best parts of this approach to lifting stubborn stains is that you can do so at your convenience, like while you’re doing chores or watching Netflix!

In-Office Teeth Whitening

In-office treatments, on the other hand, take place at our office with Dr. Murph. He’ll handle the entire process for you, so all you need to do is settle comfortably into the treatment chair. In about an hour, you’ll have a noticeably brighter smile. In fact, we can often lighten your teeth by eight shades in a single visit!

Tips for Maintaining Your Brighter Smile

Fortunately, preventing stubborn stains from resurfacing quickly is relatively easy. You probably already have adopted a lot of the habits we recommend too! Here are a few examples:

  • Brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash consistently
  • Using a straw when drinking coffee, red wine, and other dark-colored beverages
  • Eating lots of light-colored foods, like egg whites, oatmeal, and plain yogurt
  • Avoiding unhealthy habits, like smoking
  • Coming in for a dental checkup and teeth cleaning twice a year
