About Our Teeth Whitening Services

At Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry, we specialize in transforming smiles with our professional teeth whitening services. Brightening your smile can dramatically enhance your overall appearance and boost your confidence. Our state-of-the-art teeth whitening procedure is designed to safely and effectively remove stains and discoloration, restoring the natural brilliance of your teeth within just 40 minutes. Whether you're preparing for a special occasion or simply want to refresh your smile, our experienced team is dedicated to helping you achieve the luminous, radiant smile you've always desired.

How Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry Whitens Teeth in Just 40 Minutes

At Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry, we utilize the advanced Ultradent Boost system for teeth whitening, a specially formulated bleaching process that is chemically activated. This innovative method allows us to achieve significantly whiter teeth without the need for intense light treatments, which can sometimes be harsh on your teeth and gums.

The Ultradent Boost system is designed for efficiency and effectiveness, offering noticeable results in just 40 minutes. During the treatment, a high-strength 40% hydrogen peroxide gel is carefully applied to the teeth. This powerful gel initiates a chemical reaction upon application, which rapidly begins the process of lifting stains and whitening the enamel. The process is not only quick but also thoroughly effective, providing you with a brighter, more radiant smile in less than an hour.

This method is ideal for patients looking for immediate results, whether you’re preparing for an upcoming event or simply short on time. With Ultradent Boost, you can enjoy the benefits of a whiter smile without the discomfort or prolonged exposure associated with traditional light-activated systems. Choose Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry for a safer, faster, and more comfortable teeth whitening experience.

What To Expect From A Teeth Whitening Appointment

Choosing to enhance your smile with teeth whitening at Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry is an exciting decision. To ensure optimal results and a smooth experience with our Ultradent Boost whitening treatment, here's what you can expect


Pre-Treatment Guidance

Before your appointment, our team will advise you on the types of foods and drinks to avoid 48 hours prior to your treatment. This preparation is crucial to prevent immediate re-staining of your teeth. Adhering to these guidelines will help maintain the longevity of your newly whitened smile.

Initial Assessment

Upon arrival, we’ll take a photograph of your teeth to record the original color or starting shade. This initial image is important as it will allow you and Dr. D’Alfonso to clearly see the effectiveness of the whitening treatment by comparing the before and after results.


Preparation for Whitening

Dr. D’Alfonso will use cheek retractors to ensure that the whitening gel is applied evenly across your teeth. To prepare your teeth for the whitening process, they will be given a quick rinse and air-dried. Ensuring the teeth are dry is key for the best application of the whitening agent.


Gum Protection

Before applying the whitening gel, a protective substance called OpalDam Green will be placed around the base of your teeth on your gums. This step is vital to shield your gums from the strong 40% hydrogen peroxide gel used in the whitening process, which could otherwise cause sensitivity.


Application of Whitening Gel

The Ultradent Boost gel will then be meticulously applied to each tooth. The gel remains on your teeth for about 20 minutes in the initial application. After this period, the gel will be carefully suctioned off, and the process may be repeated at least once more, depending on the level of whitening desired. Multiple applications may be necessary to achieve the optimal shade.


Final Steps and Inspection

Once the desired whiteness is achieved, your teeth will be rinsed, and the OpalDam Green will be removed from your gums. Dr. D’Alfonso will perform a final inspection to ensure that the results meet your expectations. The entire session typically lasts about 40 minutes, although additional time might be required for more extensive whitening cases.

Maintaining Newly Whitened Teeth After Treatment

Maintaining the brilliant results of your teeth whitening treatment is crucial for keeping your smile sparkling long after you've left Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry. Here are some effective tips to help you preserve your newly whitened teeth.

Practice Good Oral Hygiene

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day using a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Floss daily to remove plaque and food particles between teeth.
  • Consider using a whitening toothpaste once or twice a week to remove surface stains and regular toothpaste on other days.

Rinse After Eating and Drinking

  • Rinse your mouth with water after having meals, coffee, wine, or other staining substances.
  • This simple habit can help minimize the buildup of stains over time.

Limit Staining Foods and Beverages

  • Coffee, red wine, tea, and dark sodas are notorious for staining teeth. Try to consume these in moderation.
  • Use a straw when drinking beverages that stain, to bypass your front teeth.
  • Avoid tobacco products, which can yellow your teeth.

Regular Professional Cleanings

  • Schedule regular dental cleanings every six months.
  • Professional cleanings help remove plaque, tartar, and surface stains.

Touch-Up Treatments

  • Depending on your personal habits and the type of whitening treatment used, you might need a touch-up every 6 months or after a year or two.
  • Discuss with your dentist the best touch-up schedule for your teeth.

Avoid Acidic Foods and Drinks

  • Foods and drinks with high acidity can erode tooth enamel, increasing the risk of stains.
  • Coffee, soda, tea, and pasta sauce are all examples of foods you want to reduce consumption of after teeth whitening

Dr. D'Alfonso is absolutely amazing! He came in the room with so much energy. He made me fell as if I've known him for a very long time. From check in to check out every one made me feel comfortable.

Toni, Patient

“Would highly recommend!!”

“Dr. D'Alfonso and his entire staff are a real pleasure to work with. I received excellent care and attention for all of my visits for my recent work - everyone greets you like a friend, treats you like family, and shows they value your business. Dr. D'Alfonso called me on 2 separate Sunday afternoons to check on me, and to make sure I didn't have any pain - I've never had a dentist do that for me. This shows how much they care. The work I had done was exceptional. They take pride in doing a great job. Would highly recommend!! :)”

About Post Teeth Whitening Sensitivity

Teeth whitening treatments are effective because they use small bleach molecules that penetrate the teeth. However, this process can sometimes irritate the nerves inside your teeth, leading to hypersensitivity. This sensitivity is often triggered by stimuli such as temperature changes or physical pressure, which can cause pulpitis—an inflammation of the tooth's pulp.

The whitening process typically involves removing a protein layer that covers the "pores" of your teeth, exposing the dentin beneath. Dentin is the core of your tooth, and its exposure is necessary for the whitening agents to work effectively. However, this exposure is also what can lead to increased tooth sensitivity during and after the treatment.

What Can You Do to Prevent Sensitivity?

Avoid Immediate Brushing

Do not brush your teeth immediately after whitening. Brushing can further open the pores of your teeth, increasing sensitivity. If you need to remove any residual whitening gel, gently dabbing with a wet washcloth is a safer option.

Follow Directions Precisely

Always adhere strictly to the instructions provided with your whitening kit. This includes not exceeding the recommended duration for leaving the treatment on your teeth, as overexposure can increase sensitivity and cause damage.

Use Desensitizing Products

Incorporate a desensitizing gel into your oral care routine. These products can help mitigate sensitivity by blocking the pathways through which sensations travel to the tooth nerve, offering relief from discomfort.

Benefits of In-Office Teeth Whitening

While there are numerous teeth whitening options available today, in-office treatments provide a host of unparalleled advantages:

Speed and Efficiency: In just one visit, our in-office whitening procedures can yield results that are several shades brighter, a feat at-home kits struggle to match.
Reduced Sensitivity: The products and techniques used in our office are designed to minimize tooth and gum sensitivity, a common concern with many over-the-counter whitening products.
Safe and Supervised: Under the watchful eyes of our dental professionals, the entire process is managed to ensure safety, addressing any concerns immediately.
Tailored Treatment: Everyone’s teeth are unique. Our in-office procedure allows us to adjust the process according to the specific needs and goals of each patient
