Teeth Whitening

Genetics, tobacco use, certain foods, and some medications can all cause your teeth to adopt a darker, unattractive shade.

We offer both take-home and in-office teeth whitening at our Charleston, SC, office to help you achieve a dazzling, healthy-looking smile. 

Why should you whiten your teeth with Dr. John F. Rink?

Teeth Whitening

While dental staining doesn't necessarily mean that your smile is unhealthy, it can certainly cause you to feel self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth. Dr. John Rink can help you illuminate your smile with powerful cutting-edge treatments designed to eliminate even the deepest dental stains. Why hide your smile any longer? Contact our Charleston office today to learn how our advanced teeth whitening treatments can make it nearly impossible to stop smiling!

Teeth Whitening Candidates

Nearly anyone whose adult teeth have fully developed, and who wishes to brighten his or her smile, is a good candidate for teeth whitening treatment. If you are considering a porcelain veneer, or if you are in need of a dental crown or bridge, you may want to consider having your teeth whitened first. That way, your custom veneer or restoration can be color-matched to your bright new smile, creating a beautiful overall enhancement. 

In-Office Whitening

Our cosmetic dentistry office, serving Hilton Head, Myrtle Beach, and nearby areas, uses the Opalescence Boost System to provide dramatic results in about two hours. This type of teeth whitening relies on a powerful whitening gel to eliminate very deep dental stains. First, a special guard is placed in the mouth to isolate the teeth and protect the soft tissues. Next, a hydrogen peroxide-based gel is applied to the teeth.  After about 15 minutes, the gel is removed, and a new coat of gel is applied. This process is repeated a total of three times. Finally, you will leave our office with a dazzling smile that will continue to lighten over the next couple of days. 

Take-home Whitening

If you prefer to whiten your teeth on your own time, we offer take-home whitening kits. The duration of your treatment, and the frequency with which you apply the whitening agent, will depend on the severity of your dental discoloration, and the level of brightness you wish to achieve. 

Maintaining Whitened Teeth

Teeth whitening can produce incredible long-term effects, which you can maximize by taking measures to avoid staining your teeth. For the first twenty-four hours after treatment, you should avoid dark soda, berries, red wine, mustard, coffee, and other foods that can stain your teeth. Refraining from tobacco use is also always highly recommended. If you return to drinking tea and coffee, try to use a straw. If you enjoy red wine, don't immediately run for your toothbrush - the acidic wine can temporarily weaken tooth enamel, and brushing may cause more harm than good at that point. Instead, try chasing your wine with some soda water, or a piece of broccoli, which provides your teeth with a natural and very gentle scrubbing. As always, regular brushing and flossing can also go a long way toward helping you maintain white teeth.
