Teeth whitening in Springfield, MA
When your teeth exhibit shades of yellow, appear dingy, or display discoloration, the initial impression you convey might not be what you intend. If you’re grappling with embarrassment due to the color of your teeth, rest assured that you’re not alone in this sentiment. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry underscores that discolored teeth top the list of smile imperfections people wish to rectify. Within our Springfield office, we present two effective methods to restore the radiance to your smile by eradicating years of staining and discoloration.
You can unwind in our office while we administer a teeth-whitening session, which typically takes around half an hour. Alternatively, we offer a take-home product for those seeking a solution that effortlessly aligns with their daily routine. This at-home option enables you to professionally bleach your teeth over a few minutes each day, spanning less than two weeks.
Irrespective of your chosen approach, we recommend a professional cleaning beforehand to establish a pristine foundation for your new smile. This pre-treatment cleaning ensures the absence of trapped food particles or bacteria that might hinder the efficacy of your whitening treatment. We aim to guide you towards a rejuvenated, confident smile that reflects your true self.
Why Whiten Your Teeth?
Even the most vibrant smiles can lose their luster due to various factors. While tooth decay and insufficient oral hygiene are known contributors to altering tooth color over time, additional influences can impact the shade of your teeth.
Tooth enamel, the outer layer of our teeth, possesses porous qualities, rendering it susceptible to the influence of foods and beverages with intense color pigments. Even diligent brushing may not completely eradicate the traces of daily coffee, tea, cola, or red wine consumption.
The natural aging process entails gradually thinning enamel, unveiling more inner dentin – a softer substance beneath the enamel. In tooth injury, the body responds by generating additional dentin, which can also become more noticeable.
Tobacco use and smoking introduce tar and nicotine into the equation, causing teeth to acquire stains.
Furthermore, specific medical treatments and medications are recognized culprits for darkening teeth. Among these are certain antibiotics, antipsychotic medications, antihistamines, high blood pressure drugs, chemotherapy, and radiation treatments targeting the head and neck area.
If you’ve received advice indicating the need for restorative dental procedures such as crowns, bridges, veneers, or dentures, it’s advisable to consider teeth whitening before undergoing these treatments. It’s important to note that tooth whitening treatments do not affect these restorative items, as they are stain-resistant. Opting for teeth whitening before these procedures allows your cosmetic fixtures to blend in, seamlessly harmonizing with your whiter natural teeth.

GLO®: Whiten Teeth at Home or On the Go
Our Springfield office is pleased to offer the GLO teeth whitening system, utilizing a closed mouthpiece akin to the in-office approach, coupled with gentle heat and light.
Before commencing with GLO:
- Ensure you’ve brushed and flossed your teeth, then provide your lips with the supplied lip balm.
- Dispense a small amount of the 9 percent hydrogen peroxide whitening gel in pre-measured vials onto the provided brush tip.
- Proceed to apply the gel to both your upper and lower teeth.
- Following this, align the mouthpiece and securely attach it, utilizing the remote fastened to a lanyard.
The remote facilitates the concentration of light and mild heat onto the whitening gel.
After eight minutes, perform a rinse and reapply the gel, engaging in four eight-minute treatments. The remote’s lanyard design allows you to continue your activities, whether working on your computer, attending to chores, or simply unwinding with a book or your favorite television program during the GLO treatment.
