Best Teeth Whitening in Mesa
The most common Cosmetic Dental procedure that patients ask for in our practice is teeth whitening. A brighter, more vibrant smile is as easy as having your teeth professionally whitened. Whitening is a very safe procedure that can be completed in our office or at home, depending on your time and budget. Keep in mind that no whitening system will yield permanent results, and you may require regular maintenance or touch-ups to keep your smile bright.

Professional Teeth Whitening Dentist Gilbert
Chairside whitening or ZOOM! Whitening is an excellent option for whitening teeth, but tends to be the most expensive option for professional teeth whitening. It can range from $250-$800 per session, depending on the system and your needs. A patient may require 1-3 sessions to achieve the desired shade they want. ZOOM! Whitening is typically the fastest way of whitening your teeth. Many patients combine chairside whitening with at-home systems for maintenance. We feel that ZOOM! is the most effective means of whitening in a single visit. If you’re looking for the laser teeth whitening, Mesa AZ residents, give us a call today!
Home Teeth Whitening
Take home custom whitening trays is the leading option for teeth whitening Mesa locals favor because it is convenient and cost-effective. The price for this system is usually $150-$500, depending on what is required to get the desired results. It usually requires 2-3 weeks of whitening with trays to reach the results obtained with one session of chairside whitening using the ZOOM! Whitening system. The process involves dental impressions to make molds of your teeth, which will be used to make you whitening trays that resemble clear Invisalign retainers. The whitening trays we fabricate have more space than an Invisalign retainer in order to hold the whitening gel. You will place a small amount of the whitening gel into the reservoir in your whitening trays and wear for the recommended period of time. The major benefit to take home trays is you can use the system frequently to brighten your smile at your own pace and when it’s convenient for you.
Many patients choose to start their whitening process with a single session of chairside whitening to get an immediate boost, and then continue to whiten at home with this method. So, if you’re looking for the best at home teeth whitening kit in Mesa or Gilbert, call us today.
Teeth Whitening – What to Consider
There are a few things to consider if you’re interested in teeth whitening in Mesa:
- Existing restorations – If you have existing restoration, especially on the front teeth, you may not be a candidate for whitening. If you have crowns, veneers, or fillings on the teeth visible when you smile, you need to keep in mind that the restorations will not lighten as you bleach. Often it is better to replace dingy restorations on teeth in your smile line with newer, more aesthetic restorations. We can discuss with you veneers and crowns that can be placed on the front teeth that will make your smile more uniform and will instantly brighten all of the teeth that are restored.
- Sensitivity of teeth – Do you have sensitive teeth? If so, we may need to recommend a special type of bleach that is formulated to accommodate sensitivity. The last thing we want to do is to aggravate any dental sensitivity. We can also recommend toothpaste and other topical applications that can ease sensitivity.
- Your diet – If you drink a lot of red wine, smoke, or have a highly acidic diet (citrus or tomatoes), you may need to adjust your diet prior to bleaching. Red wine, black coffee, and cigarettes/cigars all stain teeth, and may undo the work you’re doing with bleaching. Acidic food may make your teeth more porous and won’t react as well to the bleach. Talk with our staff member about how you should adjust your diets as you’re preparing to bleach, or if you’re maintaining a whiter smile with a bleaching system.
Our office staff can review all of these things with you and make a recommendation based on your feedback for the best type of whitening system for you and the duration you will use the system. If you’re interested in teeth whitening in Gilbert or Mesa, contact us today!
