Teeth Whitening: What To Expect And How It Works

smiling woman

Brighter teeth can sometimes be harder to maintain as we get older. Years of eating and drinking certain foods can take a toll on the natural color of our teeth. Certain habits, such as drinking coffee or smoking, can also make teeth look darker. Luckily there are ways to remove stains and discoloration to give you a whiter more attractive smile.

How Teeth Whitening Works

Whitening, or bleaching, removes stains inside our tooth enamel. The stained molecules are oxidized by a concentration of hydrogen peroxide. There are different concentration of gel, allowing us to determine the best one for your smile’s current color.

What To Expect From Teeth Whitening Treatment

At Dental Care Center at Kennestone, we offer our patients two types of whitening methods. You can choose to have in-office whitening with us or take your kit home where you can do it yourself. When choosing in-office whitening, the gel is applied to your teeth and activated with a special light to quickly oxidize the stain particles. You are monitored by our trained staff during the process, who will make sure you are comfortable and happy with your results.

The take home kit includes custom made trays that fit snuggly against your teeth for maximum whitening with the least amount of product possible. Simply apply the whitening gel and then wear them an hour a day for 10-14 days. Once your desired shade is reached, you will only need a few touchups during the year to keep your smile bright.

  • I absolutely love this dental experience. I used to dread having to make dental trips but since finding this office 4 years ago that took the dread away. From making the appointment, to visiting with the office staff. It's great. The Hygienist is very friendly. But that Dr. O,
    she is a ray of sunshine. Perfect bedside manner, concerning, caring, helpful, and so very positive. I do not have dental insurance and could go somewhere else that may be a tad cheaper but I wouldn't trade this dental office for the world. They feel more like family. Give them a try you won't regret it!

  • I am very happy I came to this dental office! I tend to avoid going to the dentist because of past experiences, but my visit today was 10/10!! The dental hygienist, Kelly, and Dr. Buffington were so nice and thorough. I highly recommend! So happy I found a good and nice dental office finally!! :)

  • Always a great experience when I come in for cleanings or any work that has to be done. Special thanks to my hygienist Kelli for a good cleaning today and making me feel comfortable. Dr. Buffington is also terrific and very attentive. The entire staff will make you feel welcome and comfortable.

  • I have been a patient here for many years. I’ve always had positive experiences. I especially like the Dental Hygenist “Callie”. She is just the best, always smiling and cheerful, just what you need at the Dentist. She is very experienced and I’ve learned a lot from her. All the Staff is very nice and polite and Dr Buffington is great also. I’ve had a lot of dental work done by her and never had a problem. She is very gentle and painless too!

  • The dentist, Dr. Buffington, hygienist, and staff were professional and efficient. Dr. Buffington provided an excellent explanation to my question so that I understood the situation. High recommend this dental practice.

  • Dr. Buffington has to be the kindest, most patient dentist in the world. The staff is amazingly attentive, non-judgemental and offers a very comforting experience. I appreciate how patient they are with me, a 44-year old that still cries and would rather give birth (without medication) than have dental work. I hope you catch my drift😉

  • I really like Dr. Buffington. She gave me a plan that gives me hope about a TMJ issue. Everyone on the staff was professional and seemed genuinely caring. I would highly recommend the office.

    It’s a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and they don’t try to sell you on things you don’t need.

  • I highly recommend this dental practice. They took prompt and amazing care of me to address a TMJ episode. Dr. Buffington and all employees I encountered were professional, friendly, caring and knowledgeable. They set me on the path of recovery and have earned my respect and business going forward. How refreshing to engage with a business that truly understands customer service.
