Teeth Whitening – Lakewood, CO

Get a Bright, Beautiful Smile Today!

Do you feel the weight of an unattractive smile impacting your enjoyment for life? You are not alone. In fact, 32% of Americans do not like the appearance of their teeth. Among the leading concern is tooth discoloration. With 99.7% of people saying a beautiful smile is important for social and career connections, more than 100 million people choose professional teeth whitening annually. Dr. Vincenzo Artino can turn back the hands of time to restore your confidence with in-office or at-home teeth whitening in Lakewood.

Causes of Tooth Discoloration

before and after teeth whitening

Your teeth naturally darken over the years because your enamel thins, which causes more of your yellowish dentin to be more visible. Besides age, there are other factors that make your teeth lose their luster, such as poor oral hygiene habits and smoking. The biggest contributor to discoloration is the foods and drinks you consume. Those that are darkly pigmented or acidic will make your teeth darken over time.

At the first sign of discoloration, you likely tried a few over-the-counter products, but you were dissatisfied with the results. They do not contain professional grade whitening agents, so they only slightly improve surface stains. The only way to get the drastic, lasting results you want is with your cosmetic dentist in Lakewood.

Options for Teeth Whitening

Now, you can enjoy two effective solutions to brighten your smile. After an initial consultation, Dr. Artino discusses your treatment options to make the right choice for your smile.


You can get your teeth as much as 10 shades whiter in less than an hour with an in-office treatment. A protective barrier is applied to your lips and gums to reduce the risk of irritation to your soft tissues. The whitening agent is placed on your teeth and a special light is used to activate the whitening molecules. The light is used for an average of three 15-minute intervals. At the end of your appointment, you will have a dazzling, white smile.


Now, you can enjoy in-office results from the comfort of your own home. Dr. Artino provides you with custom-fit trays to ensure the even and consistent distribution of the whitening agent. You use the whitening gel and the trays every day for about 2 weeks. As the days pass, you will see your teeth become whiter with results that last.
