Dr. Ronald Morse and his Team offer patients in Lakewood, Teeth Whitening services to help improve the appearance of their smiles. When choosing a whitening procedure that is best for your smile, seeking professional advice from our Lakewood office through proper dental diagnosis is the best way to achieve the long-lasting results you have always wanted.
In-Office Teeth Whitening in Lakewood
If you wish to experience significant color change in a short period of time, in-office whitening performed by your dentist is an appropriate solution for your smile enhancement. This is the most popular of dental procedures in the world today. Unlike at-home whitening systems, in-office whitening takes place under carefully monitored conditions which allow for the safe, controlled, pain-free use of a relatively high concentration of bleaching gel, which yields immediate results.
Stains that are best removed with in-office whitening are discolorations caused by aging, consumption of certain foods and tobacco use. No other teeth whitening procedure produces faster, safer results than in-office whitening because it is closely monitored and performed by your dentist. Gum and tooth sensitivity are more controllable, as well, due to the thicker peroxide gels and the use of desensitizers during treatment.
Take-Home Custom Teeth Whitening Trays
Many dentists offer the option for professionally dispensed take-home whitening kits. Professionally dispensed trays are much more controlled, easier to use and produces better results than over-the-counter whitening. The whitening trays give the most flexibility to patients and are easy to use for touching up your teeth every few months to maintain a sparkling smile.
Whitening trays dispensed by your dentist work similarly to over-the-counter kits, but in order to start the process, your dentist will make a custom mold of your teeth so that the tray is custom-fitted to your mouth. This lessens the likelihood of irritation and keeping contact between the bleaching agent and your gums to a minimum.
Teeth whitening results are subjective, varying considerably from person to person. Before beginning your whitening process, consult Dr. Ronald Morse for a realistic idea of the results you are likely to achieve and how long it should take to achieve them. Your expectations play a significant role in the teeth whitening process.

Before getting the family Christmas photos taken, consider a whiter smile this year!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Or at least that’s how the popular Christmas song goes. However, while you are taking down your Halloween decorations and beginning to plan your Thanksgiving menu, your thoughts might be slowly going to the Christmas holiday. You may already be planning your next family photo sessions so you can start sending out those yearly Christmas cards to friends and family.
However, before you stand in front of that camera, take a second to think about how confident you feel with your smile. Has a love of coffee over the years left you with yellowing teeth? If so, you certainly don’t want that to show in your festive photos. If this is the case, it might be time to consider teeth whitening in Lakewood.
“But there isn’t time to get my teeth whiter before my photos!”
That’s certainly not true! Sure, we know you have a hectic schedule, and the holidays often make it even more stressful and busy; however, in-office teeth whitening only takes about 45 minutes. If you’re looking for a quick way to whiten, then put down those whitening pastes, gels and trays and turn to our professional teeth whitening system. At-home products might offer a minor change, but you certainly won’t see it right away. However, in one in-office whitening session, your smile could be up to 10 shades whiter. That’s certainly a whiter smile you will notice!
How does teeth whitening work?
We will apply a highly concentrated whitening gel onto your teeth. Then we will shine a laser on your smile to activate the gel. Of course, we will use a separator to keep your mouth open during the procedure; however, don’t worry; the separator is not uncomfortable or painful.
We will leave the activating gel on your teeth for about 15 minutes. After the 15 minutes are up, we will remove the gel, reapply a new layer of gel and use the laser once more to activate it. We typically perform three 15-session whitening sessions in one visit.
What stains will teeth whitening remove?
Teeth whitening works on external stains only, which are often yellow. Our system is strong but it will not help with internal stains that are caused by antibiotics or trauma. Internal stains are often brown, blue or gray in color. Also, teeth whitening will not brighten dental work like crowns or fillings.
So, what are you waiting for? With the holidays fast approaching and your photo shoot on the horizon, let’s get you a more radiant smile as soon as possible. Call our office today to schedule your next teeth whitening in Lakewood.
