This affordable cosmetic dental treatment makes a great impression on those who see you smile and the results from whitening treatments performed at Dr. Robert Wyler's dental office in Waukesha, Wisconsin, are unmatched. You can learn more about in-office teeth whitening in this blog post.

How does teeth whitening work?

Most whitening products, including those you can find over the counter or online, use peroxide-based ingredients that introduce oxygen to the tiny crevices in the enamel of the teeth. This oxygenation process breaks apart the molecules of the stains that have built up inside the crevices, making them easier to remove and eventually restoring your teeth to their natural whiteness.

Why is professional whitening preferred?

Although over the counter whitening products like strips and toothpaste contain the same ingredients your Waukesha dentist uses, the professional-grade treatments have a much higher concentration of peroxide, resulting in much faster and more significant results. It can take several months of diligent usage of store-bought whitening products before seeing a significant improvement in the color of your teeth. When you visit Dr. Wyler's Waukesha, Wisconsin, office for a whitening procedure, your results are immediately visible.

We may suggest follow-up treatments to help you maintain your new whitened smile, particularly if they have a coffee-drinking habit that can reintroduce staining agents to the teeth.
