Tooth Whitening

No matter where you look – TV, magazine, or all around you – teeth are white, white, white. Now, Mile High Smiles can brighten your smile with powerful tooth whitening treatments that lighten discoloration caused by coffee, cigarettes, medication, or aging. You will notice the difference immediately…and so will everyone else.

Dr. Levitin and his team at Mile High Smiles leverage the most cutting-edge technology to ensure the best tooth whitening results for their patients. We are proud to employ the Philips ZOOM! suite of products, which include an in-office whitening system that leverages the power of LED light to accelerate the whitening process. This means patients can enjoy a smile that is as many as eight shades whiter in just 45 minutes with no discomfort to sensitive teeth. That additional pain-free perk can make a huge difference. Many other office systems can be extremely unpleasant, either during or after the procedure. The Philips ZOOM! system is safe, reliable, and totally painless – Dr. Levitin himself tried it out, just to be sure!

Over-the-counter whitening treatments are available to consumers (it is nearly impossible to avoid their heavy advertising) in multiple forms, like strips and whitening toothpaste. Unfortunately, these products are highly variable in terms of price, ease-of-use, and – most importantly – effectiveness. In truth, tooth whitening is really a pretty straightforward procedure. Tooth whitening products traditionally consist of bleaches (like hydrogen peroxide). These bleaches are able to reduce the size and prominence of stains into significantly less obvious idiosyncrasies, making them more manageable and less pronounced. This means reduced stains overall, which in turn creates observably brighter teeth.

Generally speaking, a professional tooth whitening service provided by the dentist will take approximately one hour of your time. The time frame depends in large part on the severity of stains and the desired outcome. More intense, widespread staining or the desire to achieve an especially brightened smile will usually require a longer procedure.

The Mile High Smiles team can custom fit your mouth with a thin and comfortable tray. Then, we dispense syringes of professional strength whitening gel with which to fill the trays. Patients can continue treatments at home until their teeth are as bright as they would prefer.
