Yellow teeth are unflattering, uncomfortable, and can leave you hiding the smile you once weren't afraid to show off. Stains develop on the inside and outside of enamel from highly-pigmented foods and beverages we consume, the natural aging process, or even dental trauma, as it tends to accelerate discoloration. At Krause Dental, we offer teeth whitening to eligible patients who are beyond brushing and flossing to brighten. Before attempting at-home kits, or silly solutions, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kenneth Krause in our Westfield, IN, office to discuss the benefits of this cosmetic service.

How Teeth Whitening Can Help You

A whiter smile is something to be proud of and makes you feel less self-conscious about your appearance. It can have a positive effect on your personal life by making you feel younger or more attractive. You may also feel more eager to strike up conversations, leave a lasting-impression, or initiate a video-call to show off your pearly whites. At Krause Dental, we understand the impact a smile has on your general outlook. And we are happy to revamp that any way we can.

What to Expect

When visiting Krause Dental for an oral examination, x-rays, and professional cleanings, you'll receive a take-home teeth whitening kit for touch-ups and maintenance. These trays will be custom-designed for your teeth by our dentist during the first appointment, and you'll receive gel refills at each recurring visit. When performed in our Westfield, IN office, the procedure is safe, supervised, and delivers immediate results. First, the gums and tooth roots are covered, and a plastic retractor holds your lips and cheeks in place. Next, a high-grade hydrogen peroxide gel is applied to enamel for 90 minutes to attack the extrinsic and intrinsic stains.

If you're looking to improve mood, gain a boost of confidence, or enhance the health of your smile, it might be time to consider teeth whitening. If your teeth and gum health is in good shape, and you're not at risk for sensitivity, our dentist will deem you a candidate for this procedure.
