Teeth Whitening Seattle WA
Let your lips curve into unbridled confidence as your newly brightened teeth dazzle the world. With our expert care and personalized approach, you're not just getting teeth whitening – you're embracing a journey to enhance the brilliance of your smile.
Your teeth are a major component in the quality of your smile, and how they look matters. How white or bright your teeth look can alter your entire facial appearance. With time, teeth can lose their clean appearance and begin to show their age.

Why Are My Teeth Dull and Stained?
If your teeth are discolored, it does not always mean you are doing something wrong. There are numerous factors that can contribute to discoloration but the most common culprit is what we consume, including tobacco.
Our teeth begin to lose their brightness from consuming foods and drinks that are dark in coloring or contain natural staining properties such as berries, tomatoes, coffee, tea, and red wine.
A Whiter Smile In As Little As One Visit!
After a while, tooth enamel can appear dull, dimming the quality of your smile and in some cases even causing your health and your confidence to plummet.
Often, a dental cleaning can remove many surface stains, but it may not be enough. We can erase the wear that comes from regular use and restore the dazzling white gleam to your smile by simply whitening your teeth.
How Does Teeth Whitening in Seattle Work?
When your teeth have become discolored, we can help. At Pacific Modern Dentistry, we offer both in-office treatment completed by a dentist on our team, or a kit designed to be used at home in your own time frame.
Both treatments are designed to eliminate any extrinsic or outer layer stains, helping to restore their natural white coloring while also enhancing the beauty of your smile.
Professional Teeth Whitening Treatment in Seattle
Having your teeth professionally whitened in our office is completed in about one hour. Since treatment is controlled, we are able to use a strong prescription strength peroxide based whitening gel.
The strength we use can not be purchased at a store nor is it present in any store bought teeth whitening product.
The Whitening Process
We begin the procedure with the placement of a dam, or separation, between your teeth and gums. We do our best to prevent contact between the gel and gum tissue.
The gel is then painted onto the teeth and left to sit for a period of time. Depending on the level of staining, or desired level of whitening, we may repeat this step multiple times. Additionally, we may decide to apply laser light to speed the process.
Whiten Teeth Safely At Home
Besides in-office treatment, we can customize a prescribed kit for use during your whitening session at home. This may be used by patients who want to whiten in their own time frame, or have had their teeth whitened in office and wish to occasionally touch up at home.
The kit will include a less powerful, but still prescription strength, peroxide gel.
Store Bought Tooth Whitening Products
There are many over the counter whitening products available in the oral care aisle of most stores. These products often advertise amazing results in little time for an affordable price.
However, these products generally contain low levels of bleaching agents, fluoride, and whitening gel, meaning that it can take many applications to see even a slight difference.
While they can be helpful for minor surface stains, they can rarely achieve the drastic results most patients are looking for from professional teeth whitening.
Is Teeth Whitening Safe?
Teeth whitening is very safe. The biggest risk of whitening teeth is tooth sensitivity or gum sensitivity. For most patients, sensitivity is temporary and only lasts as long as your treatment.
Whitening toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth helps to manage the discomfort you experience. Once your whitening treatment is complete, the sensitivity should disappear.
