Stained or yellow teeth can lessen the luster of your smile and lower your confidence when you pose for pictures or talk to others.
Professional teeth whitening can address virtually any external discoloration far more effectively than over-the-counter options.

Teeth Whitening Is an Extremely Popular Procedure And With Good Reason
Professional Teeth Whitening vs. Over-the-Counter Products
In-office treatment at our Charlotte, NC, practice can significantly lighten a discolored tooth or multiple stained teeth in about an hour. Whitening toothpastes, rinses, or strips can take several weeks or even months to whiten your teeth.
Store whitening products, especially whitening toothpastes, use a much lower concentration of hydrogen peroxide than our professional tooth whitening services. Our treatments contain a much stronger (but still safe) hydrogen peroxide formula to bleach away tooth discoloration.
Customized to Your Needs
Our knowledgeable dentists know exactly how much hydrogen peroxide to use based on your whitening needs. With store products, you might use too little, leading to limited results, or too much, which can cause gum and tooth sensitivity.
Comfortable and Secure
Our take-home whitening trays are precisely fitted to your smile so the bleaching gel stays where it's supposed to: on your teeth. Store-bought trays might not fit as snugly, causing the bleaching solution to leak out. This can reduce its effectiveness, cause tooth sensitivity, and irritate delicate gum tissues.
More Affordable Long-term
Since store-bought tooth whitening products are not as effective as our professional ones, your results might not last as long. Just one in-office treatment can whiten your teeth for several months, while you could end up buying the same store products over and over again every few weeks without noticeable results.

Choose From These Professional-grade Whitening Options
In-office tooth whitening is performed in just one visit to our Charlotte, NC, dental practice. This is a great option if you want significantly whiter teeth as quickly as possible. During your appointment, a light-activated whitening gel is applied to your teeth. When exposed to UV light, a chemical reaction breaks down deep stains and discoloration. You can achieve a smile that is up to eight shades whiter in about an hour or more, depending on your individual case.
At-Home Whitening Trays
This treatment is great for patients who want to gradually whiten their teeth on a more flexible schedule. After impressions are taken of your smile, your dentist will provide you with snug-fitting, customized teeth whitening trays for use at home. This safe, effective dentistry treatment uses a bleaching gel similar to the one used in our in-office treatments, only with a milder hydrogen peroxide formula. You should see dramatic results in two to three weeks.
4 Tips To Make Your Brilliant Smile Last
Limit staining beverages and foods like coffee, tea, red wine, tomatoes, soy sauce, and berries. Always rinse or brush after consuming these color-rich beverages and foods.
Continue to brush and floss at least twice a day. Rinsing with an antiseptic mouthwash can keep plaque from collecting on your teeth.
If you are a smoker, quit. Smoking is one of the fastest ways to stain your teeth yellow.
Most importantly, have regular checkups and cleanings with our dentists every six months. That's the best way to keep your teeth healthy and bright.
"Top notch dental practice! Very professional and friendly! The place is clean and the atmosphere is great. The entire staff is friendly and does a great job running the practice. My wife and I have been going for years and have always had nothing but good experiences and excellent results! Thank you Dr. Porter and staff for being great at what you do!" Kirk Martin
Can Anyone Get
Their Teeth Whitened?
- Dentists don't recommend teeth whitening for anyone under 16.
- Patients with gum disease or tooth decay need to have these issues treated at our Charlotte, NC, practice before whitening can begin. We offer a wide range of dentistry treatments to improve your oral health.
- Finally, if you have veneers, crowns, or dental bridges, whitening is not recommended as your natural teeth will not match the shade of your restorations.
