A quick trip to your local supermarket can provide you with multiple options for whitening your teeth. Toothpastes, mouthwashes, and take-home kits are all readily available. However, you will get what you pay for. In order to achieve the results you desire in the safest, most effective manner possible, you will need to use a professional tooth whitening kit.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Opalescence Go take-home whitening system is recommended for patients looking for professional whitening to go or as an alternative to over-the-counter whitening products. This is a great change from our previous whitening system. There is now no messy impressions, no lab time required, and you can leave our office the same day, and whiten your teeth as soon as you get home! These new trays have a unique fit and conform to any patient’s smile. These trays are prefilled with the whitening material to ensure no material is wasted by overfilling, and is a quick and easy clean up. We offer a Mint flavored 10% system that has awesome results with little to no sensitivity. Trays may be worn 30-60 minutes at a time and are single use. We offer a full kit (10 upper/10 lower trays) and a mini kit (4 upper/4 lower trays). Dr. Barton feels that a professional strength take-home whitening kit is the ideal option to deliver the results you desire while maintaining optimal levels of comfort.
Dr. Barton does not offer in-office whitening. He has found that in-office procedures, while faster, are more likely to cause sensitivity.

What Teeth Whitening can Do
Professional teeth whitening can remove stains left by beverages, smoking, age, and genetics. It can make your smile appear brighter, and much more attractive. By reducing the dingy appearance of yellow, stained teeth, a professional teeth whitening kit can make you look younger and improve your confidence in your smile.
For severe staining underneath the enamel, such as chemical stains caused by medications like tetracycline or heavy mineralization in water, Dr. Barton may recommend porcelain veneers as a better option to address your aesthetic goals.
