Are you teeth stained or discolored? Do you wish for a whiter, brighter smile? Ask Dr. R. Erik Cantwell about teeth whitening in West Jordan, Utah. Our office offers both in-office and at-home teeth whitening.

With in-office dentistry, our dentist applies the whitening product directly to your teeth. Then with the use of heat, a special light, or a laser, he will enhance the effects of the whitening product. Patients can see results after just one 30 to 60 minute treatment. However, to reach the level of whitening desired, several treatments will likely be needed.

If you choose to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your home, our dentist will supply you with a custom-made bleaching tray and a gel bleaching solution. Wear the tray with the bleaching solution as prescribed by our dentist. Treatment time is usually several hours a day or during the night for up to four weeks.

Unfortunately, teeth whitening is not permanent. If you expose your teeth to staining foods and beverages, the brightness of your teeth could start to fade in as little as a month. By avoiding foods and beverages that can stain, you may be able to wait a year or more before you need another whitening or touch-up treatment.
