Universally valued, teeth whitening treatments are available to satisfy every time frame and purpose. In the constantly evolving world of cosmetic dentistry teeth whitening remains at the top of dental procedures requested. For those who opt for this cosmetic treatment, they will see moderate to substantial improvement in the brightness and whiteness of their smile. Professional teeth whitening in the Outer Banks performed by Dr. Markus Heyder of Atlantic Dentistry is considered to be the most effective and safest method for whitening your teeth by several shades.
Done properly, patients in the Outer Banks with teeth whitening treatments can experience results that last as long as five years. Over-the-counter whitening systems are also effective, as long as they are monitored and recommended by one of our dentists in Kitty Hawk at Atlantic Dentistry.
Brighten Your Smile in the Comfort of Your Own Home
Although you can get over-the-counter whiteners without a dentist’s recommendation, if you over-use them or use them incorrectly, they can harm your tooth enamel and irritate your gum tissue. Over-bleaching can also produce an undesirable bluish hue, chalky whiteness, or uneven results. Supervision by your dentist can help prevent these problems.
To maximize the results of at-home whitening, it must be used consistently and in moderation. When a new dose of bleach is applied to a tooth that is retaining the previous day’s peroxide, the effect is greater.
Teeth whitening results are subjective, varying considerably from person to person. Before beginning your whitening process, consult your dentist in OBX, NC for a realistic idea of the results you are likely to achieve and how long it should take to achieve them. Your expectations play a significant role in the teeth whitening process.
Experience Instant Whitening Results from your Dentist in Kitty Hawk
Professional in-office teeth whitening performed by one of our dentists in OBX, NC is the most popular dental procedure in the world today. Unlike at-home whitening systems that incorporate low-dose bleaching agents, in-office whitening takes place under carefully monitored conditions which allow for the safe, controlled, pain-free use of a relatively high concentration of bleaching gel. With this, you can see whitening results immediately.
Other advantages of in-office whitening include:
- No other teeth whitening procedure produces faster results
- The safest form of tooth bleaching
- Gum and tooth sensitivity are more controllable
Stains that are best removed with in-office whitening are stains caused by aging, discoloration caused by the consumption of certain foods and tobacco use. Over time, the teeth darken with a yellow, brown, green or grey cast. If your teeth are yellowed, they seem to whiten most readily with the help of professional teeth whitening.

Professional whitening performed by one of our Kitty Hawk dentists has been proven to be the most effective and safest method for whitening your teeth.
