Teeth Whitening

As whitening products rapidly increase in popularity, it becomes apparent that most people desire whiter teeth. Bright, white teeth can make you look younger and more attractive, and will give you more confidence to smile more often. In Wausau, Wisconsin, Dr. Krasowski offers the professional tooth-whitening results you are looking for.

Gradually over the years our teeth lose their natural brightness. Although you can’t control time, several controllable factors contribute to the discoloration of your teeth such as:

  • Stain-producing foods and beverages (red wine, black tea, coffee, dark cola drinks, chocolate and dark berries)
  • Tobacco products
  • Too much fluoride
  • Certain medications
  • Old fillings
  • Dental trauma

Dr. Krasowski offers both in-office, professional whitening services, and take-home whitening systems help to achieve the white teeth you desire. Although different in several ways, each method achieves the same excellent end results.

In Office Whitening – BriteSmile

We call this two hour procedure ‘power whitening’ because the results are astounding and can be compared to results typically achieved in about two weeks of home treatment. At Krasowski Dental, we use the BriteSmile whitening system, which uses a thick-consistency bleaching gel. For BriteSmile to be completely effective, you should undergo professional tooth cleaning before attempting to whiten your teeth. This ensures that any surface stains and tartar are removed from your teeth and that the whitening product works to its full capacity, leaving you with a beautiful white smile.

At Home Whitening

If cost is a main factor in your choice, or if you prefer to whiten your teeth gradually at home, our safe, comfortable and customized at-home whitening kit may be your best option.

Before you begin the home whitening program, you will need to visit Dr. Krasowski for a general dental examination. During this exam Dr. Krasowski will ensure your teeth are in good health to accept the whitening at fullest potential. You can take home the whitening system the same day as your visit. Dr. Krasowski will show you how to apply and use the whitening agent properly for best results.

The at home whitening trays are worn for the recommended amount of time each day (Dr. Krasowski will recommend how long, usually a half hour to one hour.) You should see results after about two weeks, and might see even more dramatic results after four to eight weeks as the whitening agent continues to work after it is removed.

Each whitening option is a long-lasting, cost effective way to enhance your smile and boost your self-esteem.
