Waxhaw Teeth Whitening Dentist
Get the whiter, brighter smile you’ve always wanted
Do you want whiter teeth? You’re not alone
Everyone dreams of having a bright and even smile. But most people don’t have naturally pearly whites. In fact, severe staining and discoloration are extremely common concerns for dental patients of all ages and walks of life.
While stained teeth are rarely a sign of a serious oral health problem, they can take a toll on your self-esteem and confidence. Many people with staining even avoid smiling in public due to insecurity about their teeth.
Getting a professional whitening treatment is the best way to get whiter teeth quickly and effectively. With just one non-invasive procedure, you can walk out with a gorgeous, bright smile.
MillBridge Dentistry is home to trusted Waxhaw teeth whitening dentists. If you want to achieve a bright smile and grow your confidence, our team is here to help.
What causes stained teeth?
Teeth whitening is the most popular elective dental treatment on the market. Discoloration can occur for a number of reasons and may be extrinsic (caused by external factors) or intrinsic (caused by something inside the tooth structure).
Some of the most common causes of stained teeth include
- ^Food and drinks
- ^Poor oral hygiene
Regardless of the cause of your discoloration, a professional whitening treatment can be effective for even the most severe stains.
At MillBridge Dentistry, we offer state-of-the-art whitening treatments that will give you the long-lasting results you’re looking for. You have the option to choose from in-office or at-home treatments depending on your specific needs and preferences.
Can I use over-the-counter whitening products?
Many over-the-counter teeth whitening products such as strips and toothpaste can offer mild improvements in terms of coloration. However, they’re unlikely to result in significant changes and there can be concerns about safety depending on the product. If you’re just looking for a slight brightening effect then these products may work for you. But if you have moderate-to-severe staining or you’re looking for more dramatic results, then a professional-level treatment is the way to go.
If you’re interested in whiter teeth, let us know! We can help you determine what you’re looking for and find an at-home or in-office treatment that works for you.

How does a professional whitening treatment work?
The process of getting a professional whitening procedure is actually quite simple. Most of the time, you can get your dream smile with just one in-office visit. We will apply a safe and effective bleaching agent to your teeth, focusing on the areas that display the most discoloration. The procedure is painless and while you may experience some mild tooth sensitivity, it won’t require any recovery time.
We also offer professional in-home options. We can make you a custom whitening tray that you can take home with you. With directed use, you should see gorgeous results over a short period of time.
How long do teeth whitening results last?
While the longevity of teeth whitening procedures can vary depending on the patient, their genetics, and their daily habits, professional treatments usually last anywhere from one to three years. You can also extend the life of your whitening results by practicing good dental healthcare habits, such as:
- ^Daily brushing, flossing, and rising with a gentle mouthwash
- ^Getting professional dental cleanings and exams at least twice a year
- ^Eating a balanced diet
- ^Avoiding food and drinks that are known to stain teeth like coffee and red wine
- ^Not smoking
Are whitening treatments covered by dental insurance?
In general, because tooth discoloration is considered a cosmetic concern, it’s unlikely that your insurance will cover the bulk of the procedure. However, most dental insurance companies will cover a portion of your cosmetic treatment if your discoloration is caused by an underlying health condition.
At MillBridge Dentistry, we accept most major dental insurance. We also offer a number of payment options depending on your specific needs. We’re here to help you understand and verify your plan so that you know what costs to expect before your appointment.
