Teeth Whitening

Do stained or discolored teeth make you self-conscious about your smile? You're not alone – or without a solution.

Professional teeth whitening works wonders to restore the radiance of your smile in as little as one treatment.

Learn how Advanced Dental Care in Valdosta, GA, can eliminate stains and boost your confidence with in-office and take-home solutions...

What Causes
Dental Stains?


Stains are the most common cosmetic dental imperfection, resulting from dark-colored foods and beverages, genetics, age, and other factors. Unlike many other issues, excellent dental hygiene can’t always effectively prevent stains from occurring. With both in-office and take-home teeth whitening options available at our office serving patients throughout Valdosta, our dentists can eliminate deep dental stains and restore a youthful luster to your smile without having to take a substantial amount of time out of your schedule.

What to Expect – and Look Forward To

Since opening our doors in 2000, our award-winning doctors and highly trained specialists have worked hard to create a welcoming, comfortable environment for our neighbors throughout Valdosta and beyond. ADC's cosmetic dentistry experts offer a comprehensive suite of professional teeth whitening solutions designed to brighten your smile with ease! Whether you visit us for an in-office procedure or take advantage of our Whitening for Life program – where clients can receive custom-made whitening kits at no cost when they consistently keep up with their appointments – you can trust us to give you the individualized care that you deserve.

Zoom! Teeth Whitening

The Zoom!® teeth whitening system is one of the most popular and effective professional smile brightening systems today. The in-office treatment is fast and powerful. It can be performed in about an hour, providing dazzling and immediate results. Zoom! utilizes a unique whitening gel, which our dentists apply evenly over the surfaces of a patient’s teeth. Next, the effects of the whitening gel are intensified by a special LED light, eradicating surface stains and brightening teeth by up to eight shades. Zoom! also comes in a convenient take-home kit that provides similar results in as little as three days. The kit includes custom-made mouthpieces that evenly distribute whitening gel over the surfaces of your teeth to help you achieve the dazzling smile you desire in the convenience of your home.

Opalescence® Whitening

Many of our patients prefer to brighten their smiles at a more leisurely pace and can do so from the comfort of their own homes with our Opalescence® take-home teeth whitening kits. Each kit is custom-designed and contains a set of teeth whitening trays that fit precisely over the patient’s teeth. When used as directed, Opalescence can dramatically improve the brightness of your smile in 10 to 14 days. Once treatment is completed, you can keep the trays and use them to touch up your smile in the future with additional whitening gel from our dentistry office.

KöR Whitening

The KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System is designed to accommodate patients who have deep dental stains, want permanent results, and prefer an at-home treatment. The potent gel is applied using custom mouth trays that maximize your results while preventing discomfort. If you need dramatic results that will last for years to come, talk to our dentist about whether KöR is right for you.

Treating Intrinsic Stains


While professional teeth whitening is highly successful at treating surface (extrinsic) stains, not all tooth discoloration occurs at the surface. Tooth color is largely dictated by the dentin underneath the clear enamel. Certain medications, an underlying dental or systemic disease, or a root canal can cause intrinsic (internal) tooth discoloration that may require porcelain veneers or dental crowns to conceal. After a comprehensive examination, we can help you choose an appropriate course of treatment for whiter teeth.

Over-the-Counter Whiteners vs.
Professional Teeth Whitening Treatments
A Closer Look

OTC Teeth Whitening Products

  • Do not offer long-lasting results
  • Takes a significant amount of time to achieve teeth whitening goals
  • Don't provide professional teeth cleaning prior to whitening
  • Involve no professional dental supervision
  • Easily aggravate tooth sensitivity for some patients
  • Can trigger allergic reactions

Professional Teeth Whitening Treatments

  • Utilizes a special light that speeds up the whitening process and ensures lasting results
  • Customized trays and a personalized approach to take-home solutions promotes effective application
  • Professional dental supervision ensures a safe, painless process from beginning to end
Take it from our dentistry experts: whitening strips, whitening toothpaste, and other products mass-marketed to transform your smile don't hold a candle to professional treatment! If you demand a comfortable, effective treatment with results you can see, skip the whitening products at the drug store and speak with our dentists in Valdosta, GA.

Paying for Professional Teeth Whitening

Since it is a cosmetic dental procedure, whitening treatment is not covered by insurance. However, teeth whitening is among the most affordable dental treatments available and is proven to deliver whiter teeth in record time.

Fortunately, we offer financing options like CareCredit® to keep your expenses manageable. Meanwhile, our practice provides a courtesy discount when you pay in full for treatments over $1,000. We also accept all major credit cards.

Managing Tooth Sensitivity After Whitening Aftercare Tips to Keep in Mind

Our dentists take every measure to minimize tooth sensitivity during and after your treatment, but some sensitivity after teeth whitening may occur. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to minimize any discomfort:

  • Avoid hot and cold food and drinks: Opt for room-temperature foods and beverages the first few days after treatment.
  • Pass on acidic food and drinks: Sodas, citrus fruits, and other acidic substances can irritate your mouth and irritate sensitive teeth.
  • Use a desensitizing toothpaste: Brush with a desensitizing toothpaste and/or apply a desensitizing gel for the first two days after your procedure to keep sensitivity at bay.
  • Pick up fluoride products: Toothpaste and mouthwash that contains fluoride can help remineralize your teeth, blocking pain signals to your oral nerves.

Our highly skilled team in Valdosta, GA, will review aftercare tips in greater detail with you during your appointment.
