Teeth Whitening – Burien, WA

Remove Stubborn Stains to Reveal a Stunning Smile

Teeth are exposed to a lot over the years, and a few decades of use can leave them with unsightly stains and discoloration. Luckily, our team in Burien can provide you with treatments that can eliminate stubborn stains and take a few years off your smile. We offer teeth whitening in the form of a take-home kit or an in-office procedure, both of which can leave your smile up to ten shades whiter.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Lady thinks something over

If you're worried about a few minor marks or troubled by widespread discoloration, teeth whitening treatments may be able to eliminate stains and leave you with a whiter and brighter smile. Before we can recommend one of these treatments, we’ll examine your mouth to determine the source of the stains and check for any infections. Any tooth decay or gum disease will have to be resolved before we can perform any teeth whitening treatments. Once your smile is in shape, your teeth will be ready for our high-quality teeth whitening treatments.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Dentist explains something to her patient

Dr. Vincent Lam is a skilled cosmetic dentist who has helped countless patients achieve brighter smiles through teeth whitening. Our office offers two superb options:

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Lady smiles at home

Our team offers Opalescence take-home whitening kits to deliver superior results to our patients. These kits include dental trays customized to fit the patient’s teeth as well as a tube of professional-grade whitening gel. All the patient must do is apply the gel to the trays and wear them over their teeth for an hour every day for two weeks. This offers many people a convenient, flexible option that produces results far superior to those of store-bought products.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Dentist Smiles

Using GLO in-office teeth whitening procedures, Dr. Lam can easily brighten your smile in an hour-long appointment. After placing barriers in your mouth to protect your soft tissues, he will apply several coats of whitening gel to your teeth before treating them with a special light. Since this option can produce incredible results so quickly, it’s great for those who have special events or ceremonies on the horizon!

Tips for Maintaining Your Brighter Smile

Dental Floss

While you’ll certainly want to show off your newly whitened smile after treatment, you’ll need to take certain precautions to preserve the results. A few ways to ensure your smile stays shiny and bright for as long as possible include:

  • Steer clear of foods and drinks that are high in acids and pigments like wine, coffee, and pasta sauce.
  • Brush at least twice and floss at least once every day at home.
  • Eat calcium-rich dairy products like yogurt to keep your teeth healthy and strong.
  • See us at our Burien office for biannual dental exams and cleanings.

Have your teeth touched up as needed.
