What Is Teeth Whitening?
In a world where looks are everything, we understand why the color of your teeth is a major cosmetic concern. Fortunately, Dental@888 in Seattle, WA can help you deal with this concern with professional-grade teeth whitening. Though there are tons of at-home whitening options, we use a product that has shown to work better than most over-the-counter treatments. Our whitening services, highly recommended by leading dentist Dr. Hal Kussick, will brighten your teeth by several shades, helping you keep your beautiful results for much longer than alternative products. We utilize professional-strength gels that really do the job, reaching below the surface of your teeth to remove deep stains instead of consumer-level solutions that just scratch the surface (quite literally) and merely produce a brighter shade of yellow at the very best.

Every time I had a good experience, Dr. Kussick and his assistants encouraged me and helped me relax. The surgeries were painless and I didn’t feel uncomfortable. Highly recommend"- V.W. / Google / Sep 08, 2021

What Can I Expect During My Teeth Whitening Appointment?
Your whitening option will depend on the process you and Dr. Kussick discussed. Since our practice offers several options for successful, high-quality teeth whitening, we determine the method based on your goals and lifestyle. If you choose to have us whiten your teeth, it generally takes under an hour. During this appointment, we use a professional-strength whitening gel combined with the assistance of a light that immediately whitens the teeth several colors. Our at-home kits are equally effective but may provide a more subtle outcome over several months.
Following either procedure, you may experience sensitivity to cold or hot beverages, but this typically dissipates within a couple of days. As with all dental procedures, routine dental exams with Dr. Kussick are essential and crucial to maintaining results. Additionally, because teeth whitening is considered cosmetic, insurance does not typically cover it.
