Did you know that teeth whitening is the most sought-after cosmetic dental treatment across the United States? This is easily understood when you consider the convenience and affordability of professional teeth whitening along with its ability to make dramatic improvements to your smile appearance and overall well-being.
White teeth are simply more attractive. In fact, studies show that whiter teeth can make you more approachable, portray confidence, make you look younger and even increase your chances for career success. Unfortunately, it is difficult to retain white teeth as you age. Not only do teeth get dull and stain from the dark-colored foods and drinks we consume, but the natural aging process also contributes to a discolored smile. As we get older, our outer tooth enamel tends to thin. In result, the next layer (dentin) is more visible, and dentin has a yellow hue. Lastly, tobacco use and smoking habits can largely influence the color of your teeth. Regardless of how or why your smile has lost its bright white, there are ways to regain it.
It doesn’t take long to discover the endless teeth whitening products available at your local pharmacy or grocery store. Why invest in professional whitening from your dentist when you can elect a cheaper route from the store shelves? There are many risks to this.
First, your oral health should never be ignored or come at the sacrifice of teeth whitening. When you are going solo on your teeth whitening efforts, you may miss dental health problems that should be addressed first.
Second, professional teeth whitening is customized to your unique teeth. Since no two smiles are alike, DIY kits may not fit properly over your teeth and even overlap onto your gums, which can make them ineffective and irritating to your soft tissues. In fact, it is not uncommon to experience teeth sensitivity and other unwanted side effects from store-bought products, and this can be avoided with a dentist.
Finally, professional teeth whitening can have a much larger return on your investment. Over-the-counter whitening products are not as strong as professional-grade systems. Therefore, it may require repeated applications and multiple purchases to achieve the results you were looking for. This can add up in time and expense. With professional teeth whitening, you may pay a larger upfront cost, but longer-lasting results can be obtained quickly in just one treatment.

I do not dread going to the dentist any more, even if I need something more than a cleaning. They are great people, always upbeat, always honest, and very accommodating. I love my visits and appreciate their expertise and care!
Great office, very welcoming I was treated like a member of the family. My small problems were taken care of fast and comfortably
Dr Hemphill and his team are amazing. As a dental provider myself I can't recommend them enough to anyone looking for a great general dentist with a wonderful staff!
Great service and great people. I used to hate going to the Dentist. Very nice and courteous dental staff. Helpful front desk staff who can figure out your dental plan and give you an actual price.
Today was my first visit with West Hill Family dental. The staff was awesome! So warm and welcoming! I felt at home the moment I walked in the door. Melissa (hygienist) was awesome and very sweet. Dr. Hemphill was very personable. I am a nervous Nelly with the dentist but they really helped me feel comfortable.
Great experience getting my first crown. Dr.Hemphill and team are gentle and made everything painless! Definitely would recommend anyone who is looking for a dentist.
