What is Professional Teeth Whitening?

Professional teeth whitening uses prescription-strength whitening agents to eliminate surface stains and brighten your smile by several shades. These treatments can address stains left behind by coffee, tea, tobacco, and other products that yellow the teeth over time. Dr. Dovganoffers in-office treatments, which patients can follow-up with take-home kits for periodic maintenance. He also offers custom at-home treatments for patients who prefer to whiten at their own convenience.

Advantages Over Commercial Products

There are several advantages of professional teeth whitening when compared with commercial products like whitening strips and toothpastes. Overuse of commercial products can increase tooth sensitivity and may also produce unnatural-looking results. Our whitening treatments are all supervised by Dr. Dovgan, so there is little to no risk of tooth sensitivity or over-whitening. He will work with you to determine the appropriate strength of whitening solutions to protect your oral health and achieve your desired effects. Additionally, commercial products can take several weeks or more to produce limited results, whereas professional whitening treatments can brighten your smile by eight shades in a single visit.

Is Teeth Whitening Right for Me?

If you are interested in achieving a brighter, more radiant smile you can feel confident in showing off, teeth whitening may be right for you. If you have gum disease, eroded enamel, or other oral health complications, Dr. Dovgan must address those prior to recommending any cosmetic treatments.

For some patients, especially those with intrinsic (internal) dental stains, porcelain veneers or dental bonding may be more suitable alternatives. However, some patients choose to have their teeth whitened before undergoing other cosmetic procedures so the treatments can be matched to the brighter shade.

What Should I Expect During Treatment?

If you choose to undergo an in-office treatment, a member of our team may begin by placing a barrier between your teeth and gums. This step protects your gums from coming in contact with the whitening gel. We will then carefully apply the prescription-strength whitening solution to your teeth. This gel is activated with a specialized light, typically for 15 minutes. To achieve your desired shade, we may need to reapply and activate the gel more than once.

In-office treatments take less than an hour to complete, and you can leave our office with a smile that is up to eight shades whiter. Dr. Dovgan will develop an ongoing treatment plan for you, which may include use of a take-home kit, so you can maintain your results long term.

Dr. Dovgan and our team can provide the safe, effective whitening solutions you need to achieve your goals.

Take-Home Kits

Patients who prefer to whiten from home may opt for our take-home kits. These kits also use professional-strength whitening gel, but are prescribed to meet your particular needs and achieve your individual goals. Our take-home kits include custom whitening trays that you will fill with the whitening gel. You can wear these trays for a predetermined amount of time and achieve your desired results in approximate two weeks.

As a new patient, I recently visited this dental office and left very pleased after my first visit. Both the dentist and his staff were very warm and welcoming. I hadn't been to a dentist in a few years and this alone was adding to my uneasiness about setting up an appointment for an exam, and then dealing with which dentist to choose on top of it all? (Like many things, putting off a visit to the dentist is never a wise move.) After sorting through many reviews I then settled on Dr. Dovgan's office and was glad I did. Both Dr. Dovgan and his staff had me feeling very at ease in no time. I found this dental location to be equipped with all the latest modern technology, very stylish & clean and not rushed for time...nowadays, a pleasant surprise. (...Also, special praise here to dental hygienist "Sonata" for her gentle approach and also for really taking the time to conduct a thorough exam and cleaning of my teeth & gums. Thanks, Girl!!) Additionally, also nice was the ample, easy access parking and the comparability in pricing to the many other dentists out there. :)Upon leaving I felt I had made the right choice for myself in trusting Dr. Dovgan and his team of professionals with my dental concerns and I learned that even though my end results were not perfect ( -due to my own actions- ), they were better than anticipated and attainable. If you've (too) been playing dental roulette, procrastinating out of fear of the unknown ( -"unknown as in: "what's really going on inside my mouth??" -or- "which unknown dental office should I choose from??"- ) then this dentist and his team may be the place for you to try, as well. I wouldn't hesitate at all in recommending Dr. Dovgan's dental services. Thank you for my positive visit to the dentist!! :)Remove review

I’ve been coming to this office for the last 18 YEARS (since I was 7 years old) and I love Dr. Dovgan! I never understood how anyone could hate going to the dentist before because I loved going to mine. He’s gentle, charismatic, and extremely knowledgeable in many different aspects of dentistry. The family feeling is great with the staff and they have always been so accommodating to my scheduling needs. I loved his practice so much growing up that I decided to join the dental field myself. I’d highly recommend anyone to come to his office.

I have always hated going to the dentist, but I've finally found a place that I like going to! The staff is extremely friendly and Dr. Dovgan is great at what he does. I always have a great experience with my cleanings and today I had a filling done by Dr Dovgan and it was fast and pain free! I would definitely recommend him. Thank you for making me feel at ease

Dr. Dovgan and every member of his staff that I have met represent the perfect blend of a highly professional, efficient and welcoming facility. They are up to date on the latest procedures, they are willing to take the time to explain what is going to be done and they stand behind the work they do always assuring my complete satisfaction. I've had a range of work done from simple cleaning as well as complex procedures and I have been totally satisfied with the care, the cost and the results. I am happy to do this review because I've had less than positive experiences elsewhere and I hope this review can guide others to a positive experience with Dr. Dovgan and his staff.

I have to admit, I am extremely difficult to please. Having work in large inbound call centers and dealing with nothing but complaints...all I can say about Dr Dovgan and entire staff is I have NO complaints! I only have praise and compliments! EVERYONE there is simply WONDERFUL.
