Teeth Whitening in Brentwood, TN
Dr. Haley E. Schmitt is a cosmetic dentist in Nashville who’s passionate about creating beautiful smiles that help patients look as confident as they feel. If the passing years have left you with dull or stained teeth that you want to hide, we would love to show you how professional teeth whitening can transform your appearance.
What Happened to Your Bright Smile?
You remember when you had a bright, fresh, youthful-looking smile, but now all you see in the mirror are dull, stained teeth.
Many factors contribute to tooth discoloration and staining. Time and wear diminish the brightness of a smile as stains accumulate and create a dull appearance. Certain foods and beverages like coffee and red wine are major culprits, but poor dental hygiene and some medications also cause tooth staining. If you use tobacco products, you already know about the ugly brown tooth stains that the habit leaves behind.
Professional Teeth Whitening vs. OTC Kits
Professional teeth whitening at our Brentwood, TN, dental office can reverse these effects and give you back a brighter, more appealing and youthful smile.
There are plenty of over-the-counter whitening products available, but the results can’t compete with professional whitening offered by a cosmetic dentist. Many patients who see us for teeth whitening have tried OTC products only to be disappointed with the lackluster results.
The safest and most predictable way to see your brightest smile is to visit a trained dentist to handle the whitening procedure properly. When it comes to your teeth, it’s best to leave it to the pros!
Because your treatment is professionally supervised, your dentist can also prescribe a much more potent whitener than you can get with an OTC kit. This means brighter, longer-lasting results and more predictable and consistent whitening.
If you are prone to tooth sensitivity, whitening with a dentist is really the best choice because they can adjust the potency of the product to meet your comfort level.
We Offer a Wide Variety of Teeth Whitening Options
Dr. Schmitt is pleased to offer a wide variety of teeth whitening options tailored to each person's specific needs and individual goals. We can recommend all-in-one take home trays, custom whitening trays, Zoom! in office, and KöR teeth whitening. KöR is unique because it is the only whitening system designed for people with sensitive teeth, and the only treatment that works on tetracycline staining.
Immediate Results with In-Office Whitening
An in-office power whitening treatment is fast and effective. In less than two hours, our cosmetic dentist can brighten your smile significantly. Your treatment starts with professional teeth cleaning, and we complete the whitening process while you relax and listen to music.
Convenient, Customized Take-Home Whitening
We recommend a customized take-home whitening kit if you prefer a more gradual improvement instead of an immediate change. Unlike OTC products, your kit includes custom whitening trays that fit perfectly because we create them using impressions of your teeth.
Our dental team provides instructions for whitening at home, and we typically recommend 20–30 minutes a day for two weeks. The gel we provide with your kit also has much greater whitening power than store-bought, so you can be confident that the results will meet your expectations!
You can also keep your custom trays and leftover whitening gel to perform monthly at-home touchups.
