If you have been wanting a brighter smile to enhance your smile, we are happy to help! At the dental office of Dr. Cindy Walker located in Garner, North Carolina, one of our most popular requests for a more appealing smile is professional teeth whitening. So we are pleased to offer Opalescence® teeth whitening for our patients wanting to brighten their smile.

In as little as one treatment, teeth whitening can make a big difference. Our professional system uses a powerful, safe whitening gel applied to tooth enamel. This gel lightens stains, discoloration, and any yellowing on the teeth. Do you know what might be dulling your pearly whites?

1- Food and beverages: berries, certain candies, coffee, tea, and red wine can attach to the tooth enamel and stain it.

2- Tobacco use: tar and nicotine can darken teeth.

3- Medications: drugs such as antibiotics, antipsychotics, antihistamines, and high blood pressure medications can alter tooth enamel.

4- Age: as enamel thins out over time, the yellower dentin layer beneath comes through.

5- Trauma: injury can darken tooth color because the tooth creates more dentin in response to an injury.

If you are ready to enhance your healthy smile for a brighter new year, our Cindy Walker, DMD, PA team is pleased to provide Opalescence® teeth whitening for you. Please give us a call today at (919) 773-0004 to find out how Dr. Cindy Walker can help you get the smile you have been wanting!
