Two Professional Options

As a dentist in Soldotna, we offer professional treatments that will whiten your teeth by 5-7 shades. These formulas use a whitening agent called carbamide peroxide that contains oxygen molecules to penetrate the enamel and remove both surface stains and deeper discoloration.

At-Home Teeth Whitening

This convenient at-home kit is perfect for anyone who wants to whiten more gradually from the comfort of their own home. You can get started in just two visits:

  • First, impressions are taken so we can make custom whitening trays that fit your teeth perfectly, which allows the whitening gel to reach the entire surface area of your teeth.
  • Then you’ll return 1-2 weeks later to pick up your trays and a supply of whitening solution. We’ll review the instructions for using them at home and answer any questions you may have.
  • Then you’ll wear the trays for 30-60 minutes each day for about two weeks.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

If you have a special event coming up soon or you simply want to enjoy your bright new smile immediately, an in-office treatment is a great option because it’s completed in just one appointment that usually takes about 90 minutes:

  • Before applying the whitening gel to your teeth, we’ll isolate and protect your lips, gums, and cheeks. With the addition of a special light that accelerates the process, the gel is 40% faster and more effective at removing stains.
  • The treatment will be done in 15-minute intervals, and we’ll be checking in regularly to make sure your teeth don’t feel sensitive.
  • When your final result is achieved, we’ll discuss the best way to maintain your results at home.

How Do I Know Which Option Is Right For Me?

Everyone has different oral health needs and cosmetic goals, so scheduling a consultation with Dr. Christensen is the best place to start. Before making a recommendation, he’ll talk to you about what you’d like to achieve and examine your teeth to make sure that your stains aren’t caused by a dental problem that needs attention.

Also, some types of stains (such as those from tetracycline use in childhood) don’t respond well to whitening treatments. In those cases, we’ll recommend an alternative treatment to prevent you from investing in something that doesn’t work great the first time.
