Teeth Whitening AJ Gollofon Seattle Dentist

Coffee, meet your match!

Before we put ourselves in a dangerous situation and ask you to do anything drastic – like quit drinking coffee – well…we’re just not going to go there. This is Seattle after all, the coffee capital of America, and we love our morning coffee like we love our Seahawks. The aroma, the wide-eyed wake up, the morning ritual brewed to perfection just how you like it.

We would hate to tell you the toll it’s taken on your smile over the years (out of fear of 3rd degree burns), so why don’t you take a look in the mirror and see for yourself. Teeth looking a bit dull, discolored, not the vibrant pearly whites you once had? Don’t worry, your Seattle dentist, Dr. A.J. Gollofon can give you a professional whitening treatment that will give your coffee addiction a run for its money.

Professional teeth whitening

We realize we are competing with a huge market of over-the-counter products you can conveniently pick up along with your groceries, but the fact of the matter is these products will simply not deliver the results you can achieve with a professional whitening treatment. Toothpastes and white strips are effective at removing surface stains, but only a professional teeth whitening treatment can remove those deep intrinsic stains that give teeth their color.

Our professional grade bleaching system penetrates deep into the interior channels of the teeth, breaking up and removing years of staining and discoloration. Custom whitening trays can give you the best, most stable results from the comfort of your own home. Achieve a brighter, whiter smile with a professional whitening treatment from Dr. AJ Gollofon.

Maximize your results

In order to make the most out of your professional whitening treatment and keep your smile shining for as long as possible, it’s important to understand how teeth stain, and how to best avoid staining. While, as agreed, we’re not going to ask you to quit coffee, you should know it is one of the biggest culprits in teeth staining, alongside red wine, tea, and tobacco.

Remember that anything that would stain a white t-shirt will also stain your teeth. Minimizing or eliminating products that stain is ideal, but not entirely realistic. Instead, try to minimize time spent sipping stain-causing beverages, sipping through a straw, and always brush immediately afterwards, or at least rinse with water to minimize staining.

If you have any questions about teeth whitening or would like to schedule an appointment, contact your Seattle dentist, Dr. Gollofon, today at (206) 445-6890. Our office is conveniently located in North Seattle on Lake City Way!
