Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening In Lincoln


Everyone wants a smile with a brilliant white shine, but it can be difficult to achieve or even maintain on your own, even with the best oral hygiene routine. The unfortunate reality for all of us is that our teeth naturally become discolored over time, not to mention being susceptible to staining from other sources too. The good news is that a quick visit to your local Lincoln dentist will be able to restore your teeth to be that true, pearly white color you want. With professional teeth whitening at West Gate Dental, we can brighten your smile in a one-hour office visit, or we can supply you with everything you need to whiten your teeth at home. If you want that radiant smile you’ve been dreaming about, just schedule your appointment with us today!


Why Is Professional Whitening Better Than Other Methods?


When searching for a way to get a whiter smile, many turn to other methods, including at-home whitening products like whitening toothpaste, or even various kiosks in malls that offer a quick whitening. While these methods can work to a small degree, professional teeth whitening with your dentist has two main advantages over those other methods, which are: 

before and after teeth whitening results
Safety - When you come into West Gate Dental to get your teeth whitened, you’ll be sitting down with Dr. Sowers and our experienced dental staff, who have helped countless patients achieve a brighter smile with the very same procedure. Our treatment is also designed to protect your gums and roots of your teeth, which can easily be damaged through other methods.

Results - Our whitening treatment is the most effective way of whitening teeth, making your teeth brighter up to 10 shades. This treatment removes stains and discoloration settled deep in the enamel for a truly vibrant shine, instead of just wearing away enamel like other methods.

If you have any questions about other teeth whitening methods and if professional teeth whitening is right for you, just contact us and we’ll be more than happy to help you!


Professional Whitening Methods


At West Gate Dental, we use a high-concentration bleaching gel that is not available over the counter or at your local mall kiosk. This gel is designed to penetrate the enamel to remove stains without damaging or eroding it. There are several ways that this gel can be applied for a professional whitening, both resulting in that perfect, radiant smile that you want. The types of whitening methods that we use are:

In-Office Whitening


This technique offers the fastest results with the most powerful whitening solutions available, and all it takes is for you two come in for an office visit with us. During your appointment, we will cover your gums and tooth-root surfaces with a protective barrier, preventing any damage to these very sensitive areas. Then, we use a special appliance to hold your lips and cheeks away from your teeth before applying a professional strength hydrogen peroxide gel. Finally, the gel is cleaned away and you can look at your brand new, white smile!


Take-Home Whitening


For those who are looking for some more convenience with their teeth whitening, we also offer a take-home whitening method that far outshines your typical at-home whitening products. However, the downside is that it can take up to several weeks to achieve the same degree of whitening result as an in-office whitening.

With this method, we will take a mold of your teeth in order to craft two custom plastic trays that are designed to fit perfectly over your teeth. We will provide you with a special whitening gel that you will put into the trays, and then position over your teeth. The trays will be left in place for about an hour before you remove them. From there, you will repeat the process over the course of a few days or weeks until you achieve that white smile.
