Teeth Whitening

Years of drinking coffee, soda, and wine can leave our pearly whites lacking luster.

Teeth whitening can remove surface stains to brighten your teeth and refresh your smile in as little as one treatment.

Drs. David C. Henderson and Laura K. Henderson Jones in Carthage, MS, offer two whitening options to brighten and whiten your teeth.

Have an Upcoming Event? Contact Us About Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is a popular treatment amongst our Carthage, MS, patients because it is quick and effective. If you choose our in-office whitening option, you can experience a brighter smile in as little as one appointment, making it the perfect aesthetic enhancement before any important event. Message our Carthage dental practice for more information or use our form to request your consultation.

Your Teeth Whitening Options In-Office or Take-Home Treatments

Our Carthage office offers two types of professional teeth whitening: at-home or in-office treatment. Both are safe and effective whitening products. Which one works best for you depends on your needs and timeline.

In-Office Treatment

You can have a whiter smile in just one appointment through our in-office whitening treatment. During your visit, Dr. Henderson or Dr. Henderson Jones will cover your gums with a protective gel. Your dentist will then apply the bleaching agent with an active ingredient like hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide to your teeth. Carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide are light-activated to break down the discoloration in your teeth. The entire whitening process only takes about an hour, and you can leave our office with a smile several shades whiter.

At-Home Treatment

Our dental practice offers take-home whitening kits for those who have mild to moderate staining. Dr. Henderson or Dr. Henderson Jones will create customized trays that perfectly fit your teeth. The trays will be filled with our professional whitening agent, like powerful hydrogen peroxide. While our take-home kits are effective, you won't see as dramatic results as our in-office treatment after one use. Most patients will see results after three or more treatments. This option is great for people who wish to gradually whiten their teeth in the comfort of their home.

No matter which option you choose, you can expect to see a more brilliant smile following these professional dental treatments. 

Enhance Your Smile and Confidence

We can brighten patients' smiles by several shades using our Zoom!® in-office teeth whitening treatment. During Zoom! teeth whitening, your dentist will apply a customized bleaching agent that is 25 percent hydrogen peroxide. They will then apply the Zoom! Blue LED light to activate the bleaching agent and whiten your smile up to eight shades in under one hour. Zoom! teeth whitening also contains Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP) to help protect your enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity following treatment.

Keep Your Teeth Sparkling How To Maintain Your White Smile After Treatment

You will want to maintain your white smile for as long as possible following professional teeth whitening. There are some steps you can take to prolong the effects of treatment.

Maintain Good Oral Hygiene

Brushing your teeth twice daily, flossing once daily, and coming to our Carthage office twice a year for dental exams is the best way to maintain good oral health and a white smile. Cavities, tooth decay, and gum disease can all affect the appearance of your teeth. Preventing these oral health issues can help you maintain your teeth whitening results.

Use Whitening Toothpaste

While not recommended to create dramatic whitening results, whitening toothpaste can be a great way to maintain your newly whitened smile. 

Minimize Staining Agents

It is best to avoid stain-causing food and beverages like coffee, tea, and wine to maintain your results. If you can't part with your coffee or red wine habit, consider using a straw and rinsing your mouth with water after you finish your drink.

Avoid Tobacco Products

Tobacco products are one of the leading causes of tooth discoloration. You should stop using tobacco products to maintain your white smile. 

We can also discuss periodic touch-ups. For example, take-home kits can help maintain the initial effects of an in-office treatment.
