Brighten Your Smile with Teeth Whitening

Even patients with the healthiest dental habits can have yellow, stained, or discolored teeth, making them look older and affecting their self-confidence.

Within a single teeth whitening visit to Dr. Byron W. Wall at Cosmetic Dentistry of New Mexico, you could walk out the door with brilliant pearly whites.

Why should you consider professional teeth whitening at our Albuquerque, NM, practice?

A Professional Teeth Whitening Treatment Can Have Dramatic Results

Transform Your Smile

Dr. Wall uses advanced whitening products to provide stunning results. Whitening your teeth can make you look younger, healthier, and happier.

Achieve Results Fast

The whitening products we use can create dramatically whiter teeth in a single appointment.

Raise Your Confidence

When you love your smile, you are much more likely to show it off. 

Take a look at how teeth whitening works...

Ever feel self-conscious about dental stains?

It's important to understand that teeth whitening only works on certain types of stains...

Intrinsic vs. Surface Stains

Look at your smile in the mirror. What aspects of your teeth bother you? 

If you have yellow or stained teeth as a result of your oral hygiene routine or years of consuming wine, coffee, or tea, then teeth whitening at our Albuquerque office may be a great option for you. 

However, if you have permanent discoloration or tetracycline stains that reside underneath your enamel, we may recommend porcelain veneers or dental bonding.

Dr. Wall conducts thorough screenings to ensure you are a good candidate...

Candidacy Checklist for Teeth Whitening:

Good Oral Health

As with any cosmetic treatment, teeth whitening is only appropriate for patients with a healthy smile. Patients with gum disease or tooth decay must resolve these issues first. 

Extrinsic Stains

Most teeth whitening treatments are only designed to eliminate extrinsic stains, which affect the outer layers of a tooth. For deeper stains, other alternatives may be necessary

Color of Restorations

Porcelain crowns, veneers, and other restorations will not respond to whitening. If you have restorations that have become stained, you should consider replacing them before whitening.

Do you still want to stick with at-home whitening toothpaste or strips?

Store-Bought Treatments Simply Cannot Give You the Same Stunning Results

With the increasing popularity of whitening strips, activated charcoal, and other do-it-yourself solutions, many patients are trying to whiten their smiles at home. But the results are often disappointing

Professional dentists like Dr. Wall use powerful whitening agents that are not available over-the-counter. While store-bought treatments can take several weeks to show slight differences, in-office whitening solutions can boost the shade of your smile by several shades in just one appointment

If you prefer treatment on your schedule, our Albuquerque also offers the take-home Sinsational Smile whitening system.

We work with trusted materials and manufacturers to ensure the best possible results...

Now Offering Philips ZOOM! at Our Albuquerque Practice

Philips ZOOM!® is a trusted professional treatment that can provide many benefits: 

  • Safe treatment monitored by a dentist
  • Fast, easy, and comfortable procedure
  • Customized to avoid dental sensitivity and other issues
  • Dramatic, immediate results
  • Enhanced self-image due to a brighter, healthier-looking smile

Best of all? This treatment can brighten your smile by up to eight shades in under one hour.

If you opt for in-office whitening, here is what you can expect...

Three Simple Steps in the Teeth Whitening Process

Consultation

Before we recommend the best solution for your unique needs, Dr. Wall will review your cosmetic concerns and determine whether whitening can work for you. 

Preparation

A member of our Albuquerque team will begin by cleaning the surfaces of your teeth to remove any particles that might block the whitening agents from working effectively.

Application

The procedure is simple: a special gel is first painted onto the teeth, the ZOOM! light is applied, and about an hour later, your teeth will appear up to eight shades whiter.

Teeth whitening has virtually no recovery time...

Begin Enjoying Your New Smile Immediately

Because teeth whitening is a non-invasive procedure, it does not require any downtime. You can immediately return to your normal routine after your appointment. 

However, because you can still develop dental stains, your results will need regular maintenance. You should also take care to limit foods and drinks that can cause staining, including:

  • Coffee
  • Tomato sauce
  • Soda
  • Red wine
  • Soy sauce

If you cannot brush immediately after a meal, rinsing your mouth with water can help you avoid further staining.

Dr. Wall can also provide custom-fitted trays and whitening gel for minor touch-ups to boost the effects of your whitening treatments in between visits to our office. These comfortable, customized trays hold a thin layer of gel against the teeth, and are worn overnight or for 30 minutes a day until your desired results are achieved. 

Are the effects really that impressive?

A Significant Boost in Confidence & More

It might seem like the effects of teeth whitening need no explanation. After all, a brighter smile can certainly make you look more attractive and even younger. But patients may experience further-reaching benefits, as well. A study conducted by Crest analyzed the perception of patients before and after their teeth were whitened. Post-whitening, the findings included:

  • 58% were considered more likely to be hired for a job
  • 61% were perceived as being more confident
  • 65% were viewed as more professional

Is professional whitening expensive?

Whitening Is One of the Most Affordable Cosmetic Procedures Available

Like most cosmetic dental procedures, teeth whitening is not covered by insurance. However, it is a relatively low-cost treatment and can still achieve dazzling results. While over-the-counter products may be cheaper than in-office options, you'll likely find yourself disappointed with the outcome. If cost is a concern, you might opt for take-home trays, which are generally more affordable than in-office teeth whitening.
