Teeth whitening - your brightest smile

Teeth whitening is a popular treatment option to enhance the look of your smile. At Celebrate Dental, we offer a variety of safe and effective teeth whitening services so you can express a more confident you.

In-office teeth whitening treatment

In-office teeth whitening is a quick and easy way for you to achieve a brighter smile. At Celebrate Dental.

We apply a professional-grade whitening gel to your teeth which can help you lighten your teeth up to eight shades in a single, 90-minute visit. It’s the ideal choice for patients with busy schedules.

To help maintain your fresh smile, your dentist will also send you home with a care kit including a comfortably-fit trays and whitening gel.

And if you’re considering having dental work done, like a crown or a bridge, it may be best to consider whitening your teeth before your procedure. Prosthetic teeth don’t whiten like your natural teeth do, so your dentist can first whiten your teeth and then match the prosthetic teeth to your newly brightened smile.

At-home teeth whitening kit

At-home teeth whitening kits are a great option if you’d prefer to brighten your smile at home. Your local Celebrate Dental care team will create comfortably-fit trays for you to use, ensuring they’re crafted with maximum comfort and effectiveness in mind.

Once you return home, you can apply the professional-grade whitening gel and comfortably-fit trays. Although at-home teeth whitening kits may take a bit longer to achieve results, they offer the convenience of being able to whiten your teeth on your own schedule.

In as little as two weeks, you can lighten your teeth up to 5-7 shades by wearing a whitening tray for several hours a day.

Best commercial teeth whitening products

Teeth whitening strips

Teeth whitening strips are a more economical option to whiten your teeth at home. These strips contain a professional-grade whitening gel that is applied directly to the teeth and are worn for a specified amount of time each day.

Although teeth whitening strips are more affordable, they aren’t custom tailored for your smile and can potentially result in uneven whitening or even discomfort. It’s also worth noting that we don’t provide teeth whitening strips at Celebrate Dental.

Teeth whitening toothpaste

Teeth whitening toothpaste is a gentler and more affordable option toward achieving a whiter smile, although it’s not offered at Celebrate Dental. It’s also a great choice for patients looking to preserve dazzling results after receiving a professional teeth whitening treatment.Whitening toothpastes are designed with special ingredients to help remove surface stains and prevent new ones from forming.

Depending on your specific needs, Celebrate Dental’s teeth whitening cost ranges between $199 and $399 per arch. Costs vary based on your location, your level of tooth discoloration, and your whitening preferences.

Teeth whitening FAQ’s

How can I whitening my teeth at home?

Celebrate Dental offers at-home teeth whitening kits that can help you achieve a brighter smile. These kits contain comfortably-fit trays and professional-strength whitening gel that you can use in the comfort of your own home.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Yes, teeth whitening is generally safe when performed under the supervision of a dental professional. Celebrate Dental’s teeth whitening services use professional strength whitening agents that are safe and effective.

However, teeth whitening is not always recommended. If you’ve experienced cavities or gum disease, your Celebrate Dental dentist may recommend treatment for these conditions first before moving forward with teeth whitening. It’s likely your dentist will perform an oral exam first to ensure that teeth whitening is a good fit for you and your dental health.

Another potential side effect is possible gum inflammation if the whitening gel comes into contact with your gums. Thankfully, our teams are highly trained to take great care of your mouth during the teeth whitening process and will take precautionary steps to protect your gums and minimize the risk of irritation.

How long does teeth whitening last?

The duration of teeth whitening results can vary based on your habits and lifestyle factors like diet, tobacco use and oral hygiene. However, with proper care and maintenance, teeth whitening results from Celebrate Dental’s services can last up to two years.

Can teeth whitening damage my enamel?

When done properly, teeth whitening should not damage enamel. Celebrate Dental’s teeth whitening services are performed by our trained professionals who take precautionary steps to protect your enamel and minimize any potential sensitivity.

How much does teeth whitening cost?

The cost of teeth whitening can vary depending on the method used and your individual needs. Celebrate Dental offers several teeth whitening options at different price points, including in-office treatments and at-home kits.

How can I maintain my teeth whitening results?

To maintain your teeth whitening results, it’s important to practice good oral hygiene, limit your consumption of stain-causing foods and drinks and schedule regular oral hygiene appointments and checkups with your local dentist at Celebrate Dental. Additionally, using an at-home touch-up kit can help extend the results of your white smile.

Can teeth whitening remove stains from dental restorations?

Teeth whitening is incredibly effective at removing stains from your natural teeth. However, if you’ve had dental restorations done, like crowns and veneers, we offer separate cosmetic dentistry services to restore their appearances.

What should I do if I experience sensitivity after teeth whitening?

Some sensitivity after teeth whitening is normal and should subside within a few days. However, if you experience persistent sensitivity or discomfort, contact your local Celebrate Dental for guidance and support.

How often can I whiten my teeth?

The frequency of teeth whitening treatments can depend on several factors, including the treatment method used and your unique oral health needs. At Celebrate Dental, dentists recommend waiting at least 6 months between teeth whitening treatments to avoid overexposure.

Can I get my teeth whitened if I have sensitive teeth?

Yes, you can still get your teeth whitened even if you have sensitive teeth. Celebrate Dental’s teeth whitening services use professional-strength whitening agents that are designed to minimize sensitivity and discomfort. They may also recommend desensitizing paste to provide you additional relief.

Are There Any Side Effects from Teeth Whitening?

Some people who use teeth whiteners may experience tooth sensitivity. That happens when the peroxide in the whitener gets through the enamel to the soft layer of dentin and irritates the nerve of your tooth. In most cases the sensitivity is temporary. You can delay treatment, then try again.

Overuse of whiteners can also damage the tooth enamel or gums, so be sure to follow directions and talk to your dentist.

Why Did My Teeth Change Color?

Over time, your teeth can go from white to not-so-bright for a number of reasons:

Food and Drink

Coffee, tea and red wine are some major staining culprits. What do they have in common? Intense color pigments called chromogens that attach to the white, outer part of your tooth (enamel).

Tobacco Use

Two chemicals found in tobacco create stubborn stains: Tar and nicotine. Tar is naturally dark. Nicotine is colorless until it’s mixed with oxygen. Then, it turns into a yellowish, surface-staining substance.


Below the hard, white outer shell of your teeth (enamel) is a softer area called dentin. Over time, the outer enamel layer gets thinner with brushing and more of the yellowish dentin shows through.


If you’ve been hit in the mouth, or experienced a dental trauma your tooth may change color because it reacts to an injury by laying down more dentin, which is a darker layer under the enamel.


Tooth darkening can be a side effect of certain antihistamines, antipsychotics and high blood pressure medications. Young children who are exposed to antibiotics like tetracycline and doxycycline when their teeth are forming (either in the womb or as a baby) may have discoloration of their adult teeth later in life. Chemotherapy and head and neck radiation can also darken teeth.
