Whiter, Brighter Teeth in One Visit
As we age, the enamel of our teeth wears down and the underlying dentin - the darker inside part of your teeth - becomes exposed. Aging, wear, and dietary habits such as coffee or wine consumption can stain the dentin and erode the enamel. Even healthy, uniform teeth can begin to appear old and decayed as a result of this process. Fortunately, teeth whitening is available at our Lake Oswego dental practice for individuals who wish to restore the natural radiance of their smiles.
At Dental Arts & Wellness, we are proponents of lifelong wellness and beauty. The appearance of your smile is important, and with us, you will find solutions that will improve both your health and beauty.

We serve patients from surrounding communities, including Tigard, SW Portland, MountainPark, Beaverton, Wilsonville and West Linn.
Teeth Whitening Treatment
Even healthy teeth can become discolored over time. Though some staining agents can be countered through regular brushing and flossing, others penetrate the enamel and affect the dentin. Trauma and certain medications can stain the teeth as well. With teeth whitening treatment, we can reverse these effects and produce a beautiful, bright, white smile. For the benefit of our patients, we offer two different whitening options:
In-office Teeth Whitening - Offered at our Lake Oswego office, in-office whitening is a safe, effective way to improve the appearance of your smile. Professional tooth whitening is a non-invasive procedure that can be completed in only one visit. Though there are over-the-counter alternatives that can be used at home, they are unable to match the results from professional treatment. With professional, in-office treatment, the teeth can be whitened by eight shades or more in a single sitting, typically lasting no more than one hour.
At-home Teeth Whitening - Individuals looking for a convenient alternative to in-office treatment - one that will provide them with similar results on their own time - may find that our at-home whitening option satisfies their needs. Our at-home treatment kit consists of custom-fabricated whitening trays. A whitening gel is placed in the tray, then worn for 30 minutes to overnight each day, depending on the whitening gel prescribed by Dr. Yamaguchi.
Risks and Benefits
There are few risks associated with teeth whitening. Over-whitening can damage enamel, and the teeth and gums may become sensitive temporarily.
Otherwise this non-invasive procedure is safe, quick, and effective. The benefits of teeth whitening are many.
