Teeth Whitening: What Are My Options?

Whitening Teeth Roswell GA

Do you wish your smile was brighter? White teeth are highly desirable for teens and adults of all ages. Not only do whiter teeth look healthier, but they can even make you look younger, increase your chances for a promotion at work and boost your overall self-esteem. Unfortunately, there are many factors that can sabotage white teeth. From coffee and dark berries to smoking and the natural aging process, teeth have a common tendency to lose their brilliant hue and become more yellow over time.

Don’t worry; you don’t have to live with your lackluster smile. Cosmetic dentistry offers a variety of options when it comes to reversing tooth stains. In general, there are three primary options in teeth whitening:

Over-the-Counter Products
Many patients try to lighten their teeth using store-bought products. Your local drug store shelves plenty of gels, kits, strips and toothpastes that claim to whiten your teeth. While these may be able to produce subtle results over time, they are not best for more dramatic and quick improvement. In addition, over-the-counter products are not used under the supervision of your dentist. Don’t be surprised if you end up with sensitive teeth or irritated gums.
Take-Home Kits
If you prefer the comfort and convenience of whitening your teeth at home, yet you want professional grade results, consider asking your dentist for a take-home whitening kit. Your dentist will create custom trays for your smile to ensure that your teeth are whitened more evenly and effectively than store-bought kits. In addition, you’ll be given a professional whitening gel or bleaching agent that is stronger than what you’d find in the store. Finally, your whitening treatment can be approved and monitored by your dentist for optimal safety. Take-home whitening is excellent for patients who want the freedom to use their whitening trays more frequently for better results or as a maintenance regime.
In-Office Whitening
For patients that want immediate whitening results (perhaps before a big event), scheduling an in-office whitening treatment is best. Professional in-office whitening typically involves the application of a high-powered whitening gel that is activated by a special light. Using this method, patients can lighten their smile by up to several shades in just an hour. Rest assured that this process is both comfortable and safe.

At the office of Dr. Mitzi Morris, we want each patient to obtain the white, dazzling smile they desire. However, we also recognize that each patient has different clinical needs, personal preferences and budget concerns when it comes to whitening their teeth. We are here to help you weigh the pros and cons of each method so that you can make a confident decision towards a more attractive smile. Our Roswell clinic proudly offers ZOOM! Teeth Whitening as one of the most preferred solutions in cosmetic dentistry.

4.8/ 5.0

Based on 44 reviews

  • Dr. Morris is an excellent dentist. Her ability to relate to her patients makes her a stand-out amongst those in her profession. She practices dentistry with superior technique and care. Her staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I feel she hires only the best! One special mention: I suffer from panic attacks at times- along with claustrophobia. Dr. Morris is the first dentist I have ever had who helped calm my fears. Thus, my experience exceeded expectations! Great service!

  • Definitely would recommend Dr. Morris to anyone. She has been my dentist for over 8 years! Dr. Morris is extremely personable and is serious about the completing the best care possible. Great established dental team! Very accommodating to your schedule.

  • Great and very educational experience. Compared to my last two dentists this experience blows them both out of the water. The staff is very friendly, and very helpful. I had to go in for a total of four visits a few weeks apart from each other. They made me feel very comfortable the entire time and kept making sure I was pleased. Getting a deep cleaning went very smoothly. It was also brought to my attention that the way I was flossing was incorrect. And have since changed methods. I worked specifically with Dr. Morris. She was very nice, and took the time to explain things. Which is a huge plus for me. Dr. Morris and the staff members worked effortlessly together. I was comfortable enough to sit back and relax, strangely enough, while having cavities drilled and fillings put in. Billing and scheduling appointments, as well as follow up for confirmation of upcoming appointments was very easy. I will say my favorite part of the experience was how friendly of an environment the staff has created. That alone is deserving of a 5 star review, and the rest is honestly icing on the cake. I highly recommend this practice on all fronts and will continue using them!

  • I transferred from a long-term and very good relationship with my former dentist because of a move, and I was a little apprehensive about a new dentist. Dr. Morris has been great. She is friendly, patient-concerned and the office is new, comfortable and clean. Everyone seems to enjoy working there. I feel like I'm in good hands!

    Christopher P
  • Dr. Morris and her staff are very professional. Additionally, she as well as her staff have an excellent "bedside manner." The office is new and well equipped. If one has an appointment and an earlier one opens up, Dr. Morris offers it to her patients as she did with my last appointment.

  • I have never met a staff so nice and charming. This staff will make you feel comfortable and relaxed in Dr. Morris's Spa like office and everyone is professional and approachable too. Andrea R. explained the process of my appointment and procedures and is definitely a highly-educated and thorough dental hygenist -- SHE IS A ROCKSTAR. I'm so glad that Dr. Morris and her dental team have been my "go-to" for the last 5 years, and I wont be going anywhere else! Overall - A++ Dr. Morris...highly recommended to my family and friends!!!

  • I've been a patient of Dr. Mitzi Morris for many years, and recommend her without reservation. The office is modern. clean and spacious. The staff has always been welcoming and very helpful. And the women who work for her as dental technicians are fantastic; they do a professional and effective deep cleaning, but with a careful, gentle touch. It is clear to me that Dr. Morris reads her professional journals and upgrades her practice to stay very current with the latest best practices in dentistry. (I have had some dentists who stopped updating their practices after leaving dental school!) With Dr. Morris you can count on receiving the very latest dental technology. Her prices are very fair, and I have never been surprised by an unexpected cost or had problems with insurance not covering services rendered.

    Bruce C
  • I have never experienced an office so down to earth, so outgoing and so willing to satisfy. If you've grown to dread the dentist then lay down your sword and give this office a shot.
