Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry procedure designed to remove stains from teeth and restore their bright white color.
At Greater Dental Health, our dentist can transform your smile in only one visit with our in-office professional teeth whitening procedure. This treatment uses a higher concentration of bleaching chemicals that are designed specifically for use by trained dentists.
Our Peachtree Corner teeth whitening dentist offers the GLO Teeth Whitening treatment that can satisfy the needs of patients who want a brighter smile.
The GLO Chairside Teeth Whitening treatment is an advanced technology that uses heat and light to activate the special hydrogen peroxide gel applied onto the teeth. This process gives you instant results without causing sensitivity or discomfort.
If you prefer doing things yourself at home, then choose the GLO At-Home Teeth Whitening kits. What makes this treatment unique is its ability to provide optimal results without hassle or discomfort within short periods like no other product can achieve. This treatment also helps to maintain the results of your chairside teeth whitening treatment.
Our beautiful Peachtree Corners dentist office is conveniently located in the Peachtree Corners Town Center. Plenty of free parking is available on the top level of the parking deck.

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that lightens teeth and helps remove stains and discoloration. The bleaching process can restore the teeth to their original color or a lighter shade if the patient chooses. The dentist may recommend at-home treatments in addition to in-office treatment to help patients get the best results possible.
Patients can keep their teeth white by practicing good oral hygiene and avoiding stain-causing foods and drinks such as coffee, wine, tea, soda, berries, and other dark-colored foods and drinks. Patients who drink a lot of coffee or red wine may want to invest in a take-home kit they can use at home to keep their smile bright after a professional treatment.
When you eat or drink dark-colored foods and beverages, stains develop on the enamel of your teeth. These stains are the result of tannins in the foods and drinks reacting with saliva and the white surface of your tooth enamel. Teeth whitening works by removing stains and discoloration. Our dental practice offers both in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments for the best results.
Teeth whitening is a simple process because it only involves removing stains from the surface of the tooth enamel. It does not involve changing the structure of your enamel in any way. Because of this, teeth whitening is also one of the least invasive cosmetic dentistry procedures.
Teeth whitening is a safe procedure when performed by an experienced dentist, which is why you should visit a dental professional when you choose to whiten your teeth. Only a professional dentist can tell you if you are a good candidate for teeth whitening by evaluating your oral health and the color of your teeth. Our dentist can also help you choose a teeth whitening product that is safe for you to use at home. For the best results, follow our dentist’s instructions exactly. Also, remember that teeth whitening is not permanent. You will need to undergo regular touch-up treatments to maintain your new pearly whites.
Yes! Professional teeth whitening is perfectly safe when performed by a dentist or another qualified professional. The products used for whitening contain ingredients that break down stains but will not damage your teeth or gums. Our dentist can also provide whitening trays and whitening gel for home use if you’d rather whiten your own teeth with guidance from a professional. The take-home option for whitening generally takes longer than an in-office procedure.
The procedure for at-home whitening usually includes wearing a set of customized trays that resemble mouthguards for about two weeks. Some patients experience sensitivity after whitening their teeth at home. However, this is usually mild and easily treated with over-the-counter pain relievers.
If your gums are sensitive, talk to our dentist about whether a whitening treatment will be okay for you.
If you're looking to brighten your smile, there are many options for professional strength whitening available. You can choose between an in-office procedure or take-home custom trays. The take-home method allows you to brighten your teeth or maintain the results of your in-office procedure in the comfort of your own home and on your own schedule.
Our experienced dentist can help you evaluate which option is best for you based on the reason for your discoloration and the shade you wish to achieve. Schedule an appointment today to learn more!
