White Teeth | Buxton Family Dental

You might be looking to brighten your smile before the holiday season, which is a great way to give yourself a festive boost. At our Fort Collins, CO dental office, our expert dentist and highly trained staff are here to help you achieve that smile. 

Whether you decide to have a teeth whitening treatment in our Fort Collins, CO office or apply the product yourself at home, we offer the latest technologies to help you achieve a whiter smile faster.

What Happens during a Teeth-Whitening Treatment?

First, we apply a barrier gel to your teeth. This helps protect your gums during the whitening process. Then we use custom whitening trays—created after taking a mold of your very own teeth—to apply our prescription-strength whitening solution. 

This treatment can be done at home or in our office. It’s simply a matter of deciding if you want to apply the solution or if you’d like us to do it!

Whitening Your Teeth at Home   

Taking the custom trays home is a great option if you’re busy during the day and simply don’t have time to visit the dentist. Doing the treatment at home is also a good idea if you’ll be traveling this holiday season. 
Whitening your teeth at home means we give you the customized whitening trays and whitening solutions, and you’re able to whiten your teeth according to your own schedule! 

Most people leave their trays in for less than an hour a day and see results in as little as two weeks! 

Whitening Your Teeth in Our Office

For faster results, have your teeth whitened in our Fort Collins, CO office. 

Our in-office treatments last a little more than an hour, and we generally suggest that you also do treatments at home to optimize your results.
