What does it take to really change the way you look? Hours upon hours at the gym? Expensive trips to the most cutting-edge salon in the Eagle River area? What about a routine trip to your dentist?

You may not love going to the dentist, but you will love the results when they help you find the best way to whiten your teeth. Teeth whitening in Anchorage is a simple cosmetic dentistry procedure, but the dramatic results never cease to impress.

Your Wasilla, Palmer, or Southern Alaska dentist can work with you to develop a teeth whitening regimen that will be most effective. This may include any of the following three methods:

1. Bleaching done in-office. Sometimes called chairside bleaching, a special light is used while a bleaching agent is applied to the teeth. A rubber shield or protective gel is used to keep your tender gums safe from the whitening agent.

2. Bleaching at home. Even though this is done at home, the peroxide-containing whiteners used do have potential side effects, so it’s a good idea to discuss this with your dentist. Also, there are many at-home whiteners available in Anchorage, Alaska drug stores, and your dentist can direct you to the best ones.

3. Toothpastes with whitening properties. When a toothpaste carries the ADA Seal of Acceptance, it means that it contains special chemical or polishing agents. These will provide additional stain removal which complements the surface stain removal offered by all toothpastes.
