Over the years, many habits can cause your teeth to take on a darker hue, such as tobacco use and frequent coffee or wine consumption. Additionally, the white enamel of your teeth thins as you age, allowing more of the yellowish underlying dentin to be exposed. If you’re ready to enjoy a brighter, more youthful smile, you might be interested in our professional teeth whitening treatment. This take-home kit can dramatically brighten your smile by several shades in record time.
After a consultation in which Dr. Mosby determines that teeth whitening is the right solution for you, he’ll take impressions of your teeth and use those molds to create personalized trays. Their custom-made fit ensures none of our ultra-potent bleaching gel irritates the soft tissues in your mouth.
For half an hour or so a day, you’ll fill your trays with the gel, which is exponentially more effective than the whitening strips and toothpastes you can find at the drugstore. We recommend brushing your teeth before putting the trays in for maximum effectiveness. You can wear the trays at any time of day, whether you’re getting ready for work in the morning or unwinding with your favorite show before bed.
Most patients report their smile being up to eight shades whiter after just two weeks of daily treatment.
In addition to providing more drastic results that last longer, professional teeth whitening has many advantages over store-bought whitening products, such as:
If you are unhappy with the color of your teeth, you may be a good candidate for teeth whitening. For most people, teeth whitening is a safe and effective treatment. However, it may not work if you have restorations such as veneers or crowns on your front teeth. These restorations do not respond to the active ingredients in our bleaching solution. To make sure your smile stays all the same shade, you may need to get the restorations replaced after your whitening treatment.
Also, some types of tooth discoloration may not be removable even with our incredibly effective whitening gel. If that’s the case and you still wish to whiten your smile, we can discuss a few other options that may be right for you.

Are you ready to remove years of stubborn stains and discoloration? Dr. Mosby would love to help with a take-home teeth whitening treatment in Kingswood! We know many of our patients like to do their research before giving us a call, which is why we have answered a few frequently asked questions below. If you can’t find the answer to your specific question or you would like to schedule your initial consultation, then contact our office today.
Absolutely not! Although sensitivity the day or two following your treatment is completely normal, the sensation will dissipate. Plus, Dr. Mosby uses customized trays so you can enjoy all the benefits of our ultra-potent bleaching gel with minimal irritation. In short, the only long-term effect will be a bright, beautiful smile.
The longevity of your teeth whitening treatment results rests heavily on how you care for your new and improved smile. For example, if you partake in poor dental habits, like using tobacco products and drinking an excessive amount of coffee, then you can expect discoloration to resurface within a few months. On the other hand, if you implement a solid oral hygiene routine and visit our dentist in Kingswood every six months for a professional cleaning, then the results can last for years!
While the whitening agent will not change the shade of your restorations, they can temporarily reduce their bond with your enamel. To prevent that from happening, Dr. Mosby begins each consultation with a thorough exam. Once he’s determined you are a candidate and has discussed your smile goals in-depth, he will create a custom treatment plan based on your unique dental needs. That way, you can safely get the bright, beautiful smile you deserve.
In short, the answer is no. Every component of our teeth whitening process has been extensively researched and tested for safety and effectiveness. Plus, our professional-grade, high-quality materials are ADA-approved. Additionally, unlike store-bought alternatives, your treatment is supervised by a licensed professional to ensure your beautiful new smile doesn’t come at the cost of your oral health.
From the level of discoloration to the number of treatments needed, there are a variety of factors that influence the cost of whitening your smile. To ensure you get the right answer, that doesn’t include paying for anything you don’t need, we encourage you to schedule an initial consultation with our team. From there, we can discuss your options and provide you with the exact price.
