Let Teeth Whitening Renew Your Smile

Looking for a fast and simple solution for whitening your smile? Then it’s time to consider professional teeth whitening.


If at-home whitening kits from your local drugstore just aren’t cutting it and you want to get a brighter smile fast then it might be time to teeth whiteningtoss out that kit and turn to our West Allis, WI dentist Dr. Jeffrey Welnak for professional in-office teeth whitening.

Tooth enamel is porous, so years of consuming certain foods and drinks like coffee, tea or tomato sauce can cause stains to enter through the enamel, which your everyday brushing won’t be able to wipe away. Even though these stains are harmless they can affect the attractiveness of a smile.

Fortunately, this is where professional teeth whitening comes in. When our powerful professional-grade bleaching agents are applied to tooth enamel it creates a chemical reaction that helps to break apart stubborn, deep-set stains. Two of the most popular bleaching ingredients are hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide.

Sometimes in just one 45-minute whitening session our West Allis general dentist can whiten teeth by up to eight shades or more. This is a much bigger difference than anything you’ll ever see with at-home products. That’s because we are highly trained to be able to safely and effectively use the most powerful whitening gels on the market to get your smile back to its original radiance without having to wait weeks for results.

There are some things to remember before choosing to get your teeth whitened in West Allis:

  • Professional teeth whitening might not be right for patients with tooth sensitivity. Talk to us about whether this treatment is right for you.
  • Teeth whitening is only used on external stains caused by aging, food, drinks and smoking. Teeth whitening might not give you the same results if you want to remove internal stains (stains caused by direct trauma, certain medications, etc.).
  • Teeth whitening can only brighten natural tooth structures. This means dental work such as fillings or crowns will not become whiter with treatments.
