Hi, I’m Dr. Gordon West, an experienced Lafayette general and cosmetic dentist serving the greater Boulder area. One of the most common requests I get from my dental patients is whiter teeth.
I am happy to say that Lafayette dental patients are in luck when it comes to teeth whitening in Colorado, because cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening and veneers are safe, effective, and affordable.
Some Lafayette patients might be interested in bleaching their teeth at home. There are many affordable teeth whitening products available at Boulder, Boulder County, and Lafayette, CO drugstores. Remember that even though you are doing this procedure at home, you should discuss it with your Lafayette dentist and report any sensitivity that may occur.
There are many dentists in the Boulder area that offer in-office teeth bleaching which can often be done in one visit. Boulder residents who do in-office bleaching usually appreciate the care that is given to protect the soft tissues of the mouth from the bleaching agent.
Any toothpaste that has an added polishing agent is considered a whitening toothpaste. For my patients, I always tell them to look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance when purchasing these.
As you can see, there are a lot of great ways to keep your teeth nice and white here in Boulder.
If you’re interested in any of these tooth whitening methods or a complete smile makeover, call Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry at 720-862-3630. Our state-of-the-art dental care in a comfortable environment staff will schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation at your convenience.
We hope to hear from you soon!
