Options for every smile … to safely, effectively, and comfortably whiten teeth

Jepsen, Murphy & Associates Dental in Westminster, Colorado, treat generations of families. We get to know our patients and identify patterns that seem to run in these families. With that being said, we treat each family member like the one-of-a-kind individual that he/she/they are and offer a range of options in every category (general, cosmetic, restorative) due to this consideration. After all, each patient has a different “starting point” or anatomical characteristics. Personal preferences, goals, lifestyle, habits, behaviors, nutrition, and other factors also vary considerably from person to person.

Options for professional teeth whitening

Unlike other dental practices in and around Northglenn, Arvada, and Thornton, our practice offers both convenient home whitening and in-office “power” whitening services. We may also suggest easy-to-use whitening strips that really work and are safe. There is sure to be an option that gets the results you are after, whereas many other OTC products may have failed. Professional services designed and overseen by a dentist also support the most custom, safe, and comfortable whitening experience possible.

In fact, professional whitening allows us to personalize each aspect of the process to the patient. We make whitening trays designed to fit the unique contours of each patient’s mouth. In turn, custom trays evenly deliver the whitening gel to the teeth. The trays also don’t slip around. So, your treatment is comfortable and does not cause irritation or damage to oral tissues.

Furthermore, we can customize the strength of the peroxide-based whitening gel that is used to remove stains and lighten the teeth. Patients with concerns over tooth sensitivity or who have a history of sensitivity may be treated with a less concentrated, though no less effective, whitening gel. Additionally, we may tailor treatment so the whitening gel is not in contact with the teeth for long among those patients with sensitive teeth. Shorter wear times can help to minimize sensitivity and to assure utmost comfort. Of course, wearing the customized trays or strips as directed by your dentist is critical.

For patients who opt for chairside or office whitening, we have many built-in safeguards to support comfort and fast, effective treatment. These safeguards include protecting the surrounding oral tissues before applying the gel to the teeth.

At Jepsen, Murphy & Associates Dental, we are partners in your and your family’s oral health. As such, we can also discuss ways to keep your white teeth looking great and stain-free! These include regular visits to our office for professional cleanings and nutritional and home care recommendations. Call us at (303) 800-6884 with your questions or schedule an appointment at our Westminster, CO office.
