If you want to take your healthy smile to the next level, it’s time to consider teeth whitening. At Canyon Gate Dental in Orem, Lindon, and Vineyard, we offer several whitening products and techniques to give you that bright beautiful smile you’ve always dreamed of.

Whitening Your Teeth

There are several different types of stains and some do not whiten as well as others. Yellow stains whiten well, while brown stains are a bit more difficult to remove. The most difficult stains to remove are gray stains, such as the kind caused by antibiotics taken during childhood. It is important to remember that only natural teeth are affected by whitening procedures. Feillings, veneers, and crowns cannot be whitened. Your dental hygienist at Canyon Gate Dental can give you suggestions on the best way to whiten your teeth.

Take Home Trays

Whitening trays are one of the best ways to whiten teeth. They deliver excellent results with minimal sensitivity. These trays are customized specifically to your teeth, preventing whitening gel from hurting your gums. To get the best results, your dental hygienist will examine the amount of staining you have and advise you on a specific regimen. Typically, whitening gel should be applied for 30 minutes each day for two or three weeks.

Over the Counter Whitening Products

Marketing can be very misleading. While many whitening products purchased at grocery or drug stores, such as toothpastes and mouthwashes, claim to be whitening, the fact is that they aren’t as effective as professional whitening procedures. Whitening pastes and rinses often contain more abrasive ingredients, which only clean or whiten your teeth slightly more than the normal products. At best, these types of products remove surface stains, but do not change the color of your teeth. Our patients are often disappointed by over the counter whitening products and that’s why we recommend take home trays or our in-office products if you would like to see real results.

  • I hadn’t been to the dentist in a really long time because I didn’t like my previous dentist. I loved canyon gate dental, they were so sweet and caring and Dr Young was very nice and you could tell he wanted to help. They worked with me and gave me a plan for what I needed. Highly recommended!

  • Canyon Gate Dental is a great place to go to get your teeth clean and worked on! I have been pleased with their work (I have been going there for seven years). They have good music and the dentist will occasionally sing along. 🙂 I haven’t met someone yet that isn’t friendly and they have reasonable prices.

  • I’ve been seeing Dr. Payne for over a decade (actually, it’s approaching two decades — yikes). He has terrific staff! Dr. Payne is one of the most personable people I know. He’s always concerned about my comfort and gives a very thorough exam. I highly recommend.
