Dental Design Studio offers professional Teeth Whitening in each of our four metro Phoenix locations. In office whitening is a procedure where teeth whitening gel is applied on the teeth in a controlled environment in order to brighten a smile by several shades in just one appointment. It’s a great way to boost your appearance or jump-start your future cosmetic dentistry procedures.
Sometimes it’s best to whiten your teeth before starting cosmetic dentistry treatments like porcelain veneers, dental crowns, or bridges, so that your new restorative dentistry or aesthetic procedures can be matched to the shade of your surrounding teeth.
In some cases, whitening your teeth can also reduce the extent of other cosmetic treatments that are needed! When combined with therapies such as Invisalign braces, Teeth Whitening can give you a straighter, whiter, healthier smile in no time.

Because Professional In-Office Teeth Whitening works so quickly, it’s perfect for that last-minute smile makeover when you don’t have time to make multiple appointments with our general and family dentists. In fact, we offer same day treatments so that you can get started at any time.
Now that your teeth have been whitened,we recommend booking a preventive dentistry appointment every six months, so that you can have your teeth professionally cleaned and any stain buildup buffed away.
Brush your teeth daily. If your smile is sensitive, you can use an anti-sensitivity toothpaste to combat any symptoms. When you drink something such as iced tea or soda, try to use a straw, so that the dark liquid can pass by the front of your smile instead of instantly coming into contact with the enamel and re-staining it.
Depending on your situation, you may also want to have a set of professionally fitted whitening trays made to wear at home. These trays allow you to use our prescription grade whitening gel, so that you can keep your teeth bright for years to come.
If you would prefer to whiten your teeth in the convenience of your own home, you can bypass the in-office whitening treatment that we offer and elect to have custom trays made. Like your touch-ups after a In-Office whitening treatment, you will wear your trays filled with prescription strength gel for an hour a day.
What do you need to know when you’re getting ready for Teeth Whitening treatment?
What should you expect during your Teeth Whitening appointment? First, we’ll lay you back in the chair so that you can relax. You can even watch the TV if you want! Then we’ll apply a protective coating along your gums, so that they don’t get irritated during the solution application. Next, we pain the whitening gel onto the teeth and apply a bright light to activate the stain-release process. We’ll repeat this process three or four times, until our general and family dentists feel that we’ve reached the optimal results of your treatment.
A treatment with our dentists is an affordable way to enjoy a smile makeover that fits your budget. Plus, it saves you time by giving you drastically brighter teeth in just 60-90 minutes. We offer amazing deals on whitening so that we can introduce patients to our offices

A white bright smile can be a confidence booster and a great way to get noticed. Depending on our everyday choices, we may not have the smile we always wanted. Wine, smoking, tea, soda and other foods and beverages can cause teeth staining.
There are numerous types of teeth stains; some are genetic, environmental or pharmacological in nature. The most common are surface stains on the enamel or beneath the enamel in the dentin. Surface stains are caused by foods, beverages and lifestyle behaviors, like smoking. Over time, surface stains may penetrate the enamel and change the color of the dentin, which darkens the overall appearance of the tooth due to the translucency of the enamel layer. When this occurs, the tooth often appears yellow.
There are many whitening options, from OTC toothpastes, rinses and strips, to professionally supervised solutions such as Philips Zoom in-office and take-home whitening.
Certain products may remove surface stains by using abrasion or through a chemical reaction. Whitening toothpastes may contain silica molecules that polish the enamel. Rechargeable toothbrushes such as Philips Sonicare Diamond Clean use the action of the bristles on the tooth surface to remove the stains.
Whitening products including hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, which cause a chemical reaction that breaks apart the carbon bonds that create yellow stains. Once the bonds are broken, they no longer reflect a yellow color.
As you would with any product you use on your body, be sure to follow the teeth whitening directions carefully. Some whitening products can irritate your gums or cause undue sensitivity if used improperly or too often.
The safest way to whiten your teeth is under the supervision of your dental professional who will assess your overall oral health, the health of your teeth and know the history of your teeth. For example, if your dental professional knows that you are prone to sensitivity, he or she may recommend a gentle formulation to ensure you get the results you are looking for with a treatment that you will enjoy.
Most whitening services are designed to last for a long period of time, but relapse is not uncommon due to personal behaviors that restain your teeth.
