How long does it take to get your teeth whitened?

The time it takes to whiten your teeth will depend on which method you select and how severely discolored your teeth are. Dr. Orme and our team at Southwest Dental Care do our best to provide you with fast results that are also top-notch. On average, an in-office whitening procedure can take anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half, and the at-home whitening process with custom trays can take two to four weeks.

How long does teeth whitening last?

Professional teeth whitening results can last anywhere from six months to a year. The care provided to the newly white teeth will ultimately determine how long they shine. To help patients to enjoy their bright smiles longer than the average results, we recommend patients avoid beverages that have a high chance of staining teeth, use whitening toothpaste, and keep up with a dental hygiene routine to encourage a healthy and beautiful smile.

What is the difference between store-bought whitening vs. in-office whitening?

Compared to store-bought whitening kits, professional in-office whitening is effective and much safer. You can select from toothpaste, gel strips, or trays with store-bought whitening kits. However, these products tend to be less effective than the products used by our teeth whitening dentist due to the low potency and less concentration of the whitening gel.

"This was the best experience with a dentist I've ever had. I had an implant done and was expecting a lot of pain. I had no pain at all. It was so refreshing to have a dentist who cares about his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Orme and his staff at Southwest Dental Care."

- Sheryl B.

"I'm the kind of person who likes a real explanation of what's happening, even if I don't really understand half of it. Dr. Orme went the extra mile to explain everything in a casual and personable way without "dumbing it down". The office space is modern and fresh, and the staff is welcoming and characterful."

- John D.

"I worked with Dr. Orme in the Dominican Republic recently on a humanitarian trip. I watched him work hard every day at making the people feel good, creating an experience, as well as teaching those around him. He makes patients and co-workers feel good. He's positive, very upbeat, and I would recommend him strongly!!"

- Spencer C.

"He is the best dentist I have ever been to. He listens and only does what you want done without pressure. Very informative without the lecture. Dr. Orme and his staff are very friendly."
