Teeth Whitening

All About Tooth Stains

When a tooth becomes discolored, it is the outer-most layer of the tooth, known as the enamel. The enamel is filled with tiny pores which makes it susceptible to staining or discoloration. Understanding this, it becomes quite clear why teeth can become stained over time. During any teeth whitening treatment, it is the enamel that is being treated which results in whiter looking teeth.

Some common causes of tooth staining or discoloration include: coffee, tea, sodas, wine, some fruits and vegetables, tobacco, and poor or inadequate brushing. When the tooth is discolored, it is due to microscopic particles within the porous enamel layer of your teeth. At Couch & Hammond, we offer professional whitening treatments that effectively eliminate stains and discoloration. Our treatments remove the staining particles and bleach the enamel, giving you a much whiter smile.

Brightening Your Smile
Quickly and Successfully

Effective In-Office Treatment

It's only natural that teeth become discolored over time. Even more so if you're a heavy coffee drinker, soda drinker, or smoker. Don't let stained or discolored teeth take away your confidence. Couch & Hammond offers fast and affordable teeth-whitening solutions. Our in-office whitening treatment is a service that only a qualified dentist can deliver unlike those gimmicky teeth whitening stations you may find in a mall or shopping center.

Powerful Home-Whitening Kits
If you wish to whiten your teeth on your own time and at your own convenience, we provide Kör and Opalescence home whitening kits for extra-strength treatments you can't find anywhere else. Our teeth-whitening kits can treat even the deepest stains and discoloration.

Single-Visit Teeth Whitening

Our in-office whitening treatment begins by ensuring that only your teeth are exposed, covering your lips and gums. We can then typically evaluate just how white your new smile will be by finding the ideal whitening shade for you.
Next, we apply a high-strength whitening gel to the surfaces (or enamel) of your teeth. Our whitening gel is designed specifically to respond to our in-office whitening light.
We then expose the gel to a special whitening light, which causes the gel to penetrate into the enamel in order to break up stains and discoloration.
Discover your new-found confidence as you immediately gain a whiter smile to follow you right when you leave the office!

In-Office Whitening vs. At-Home Whitening Kits

There are numerous ways you can whiten your teeth with over-the-counter products being the most convenient. However, these at-home kits often demand multiple applications over the period of a few weeks.

Couch & Hammond's in-office whitening treatments use a special whitening gel in tandem with a powerful whitening light that cannot be found in any supermarket or pharmacy. Our treatment requires a single visit to our office compared to daily applications with your at-home kit. If you're in a time crunch, whether for a wedding or family picture, our single-visit treatment may be just what you need.

Over-the-Counter vs. Dentist-Provided Home Whitening Kits
There Is a Difference

Traditionally, store-bought whitening kits contain an uncomfortable mouthpiece or they require more whitening gel for each tooth in order to achieve the desired effect. The gel, itself, in these kits is not as concentrated as our in-office gel, meaning that it will likely require multiple applications over a longer period of time to get those pearly whites. Couch & Hammond uses Kör whitening kits that come with a whitening mouthpiece that is custom built for the shape of your teeth, ensuring a much more comfortable and effective fit. Plus, our home-whitening kits use a stronger whitening gel that achieves a deeper and enduring result in less time.

Should you wish to know more about our in-office or at-home whitening treatments, please call us at 530-677-0723 (Cameron Park) | 916-805-5077 (Folsom). You can also book your appointment online and get set-up for your one-hour whitening treatment.

Is the In-Office Whitening Affordable?

You might think that requiring a dentist for a more effective whitening treatment would cost more than you can afford, but you're likely to be surprised just how in-expensive it is! Recent advancements in whitening technology have made our services much more affordable for patients. At Couch & Hammond, in-office whitening treatment is very affordable, and in fact, is one of the cheapest cosmetic dental services offered.

Though a single-visit whitening treatment typically costs a bit more than at-home whitening kits, you're getting a much better and faster result. Our in-office treatments do not require daily applications and achieve longer results due to our highly concentrated whitening gel and whitening light, two items you simply can't get in stores.

Since results can vary based on your teeth's existing color and their overall condition, we'd love for you to book your appointment today, so we can better assess your smile.
