What is Professional-Grade Teeth Whitening?
Pictures capture a lot of life these days so we know the appearance of your smile is vital. Fortunately, Dr. R. Asher Henegar, D.D.S., P.A. in Colorado Springs, CO is able to help you address stained teeth with professional-grade teeth whitening. Although there are hundreds of grocery store whitening choices, we supply a product that has shown to be superior to most over-the-counter remedies currently available. Our whitening services, highly recommended by our talented dentist Dr. Asher Henegar, can whiten your teeth by several shades, helping you maintain your beautiful results for much longer than alternative products. We utilize professional-strength gels that reach beneath the surface of your teeth to remove deep stains, as opposed to store-bought solutions that just scrape the surface of your teeth and provide a brighter hue of yellow at the very best.
"While on vacation my husband developed quite the toothache. Friday afternoon and Dr. Henegar fit us in! Very impressed with the time he took and his diagnosis! Alex was great as well! Would recommend Dr. Henegar for sure!"- N.H. / Google / Aug 14, 2021

"I haven't been to the dentist in over five years. It's a lot easier said then done but when you don't have insurance or have the finances it gets pushed back over the years. I would highly recommend Dr. Henegar. The office was clean and modern. The staff all had smiles and were very friendly upon entering the office. I was greeted with a hand shake by the doctor himself. We took x-rays of my teeth and came up with a plan. Dr. Henegar was very friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. It felt good to go to the dentist and not be questioned as to why I haven't been to a dentist in so long.We came up with a step by step plan for future visits and he even recommended ortho to help straightrn my bottom teeth in the future. I couldn't be happier with the affordablility but also with the friendly staff. It is nice to be known and addressed by your name rather then a patient room number. No judgments here."- E.M. / Google / Sep 15, 2021
"Cannot recommend Dr. Henegar enough! I just recently started coming here, and the environment is so relaxing. The staff are extremely attentive and friendly. I had to have several fillings done and Dr. Henegar even touched up an old filling that I had as a courtesy. He and his staff are so friendly and caring and make you feel like more than just a dollar walking in the door. As long as I live in the Springs, I’ll be coming back to him!"- M.W. / Google / Sep 15, 2021

What To Expect from Professional-Grade Teeth Whitening
If you're debating the pros and cons of professional-strength vs. over-the-counter teeth whitening solutions, you should think about what you are really trying to do. If you're looking to effectively whiten your teeth for longer-lasting results, professional-strength whitening could be just what you need. What you should expect for your whitening treatments is dependent on the method chosen by Dr. Henegar. Since our practice provides a few different treatments for effective and professional teeth whitening, the process selected for you will be determined after discussing your cosmetic goals and lifestyle. In most situations, your in-office teeth whitening procedures will be completed in less than one hour through the application of a prescription-strength whitening gel, along with the technology of a lighting system that quickly whitens the teeth several colors. Remember that simply because your teeth are white does not necessarily indicate that they're healthy. That's why regular exams are still needed. You'll also receive care instructions concerning what foods and drinks should and shouldn't be consumed in the immediate future, like berries, red wine, and coffee.

There are no risks to your teeth from a professional teeth whitening procedure. Some patients may experience sensitivity and gum irritation afterward, but it is usually transitory. Dr. Henegar can go over all aspects of the procedure and give you some tips on aftercare during your visit.
Does professional teeth whitening hurt?
The actual procedure of professional teeth whitening causes no pain or discomfort. For some people, the whitening agents can result in teeth sensitivity, which Dr. Henegar can address during your visit.
