Alternatives to Teeth Whitening

If your tooth stains are considered resistant to professional bleaching products or you would like to consider a permanent smile makeover with whiter teeth, Dr. Cook offers cosmetic dental treatments that can meet your needs:

  • Tooth bonding
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Dental crowns

Teeth Whitening What to Expect

Dr. Cook will meet with you to evaluate the cause of your tooth stains or discoloration to be sure that a professional take-home kit will meet your needs and cosmetic goals. There are certain types of tooth stains, often from medications, that can be resistant to bleaching.

It is also important to start with a clean, healthy smile. If you are in need of a dental cleaning or gum disease is present, we will schedule a cleaning and appropriate treatment to restore and stabilize your oral health before you whiten your teeth. This will ensure the safest and optimal result from your take-home kit.
