Professional Teeth Whitening In Seattle

Professional Teeth Whitening In SeattleYour smile is one of the first things a person will notice when you meet. If you have stained, dull or discolored teeth, teeth whitening may be a great option for you. Dr. Chilton and his office staff offer many different forms of teeth whitening. These different types are designed for the specific needs of different types of patients. Bleaching for a teenager is different than bleaching an adult’s teeth. And for an adult, whitening for a 24 year-old is different than whitening for a 65 year-old. Even healthy teeth discolor over time. The main causes of stained teeth are genetics, antibiotics, tobacco and certain foods. As we age, our teeth darken as well.

Teeth whitening is a simple and effective way to brighten your smile. You can look younger and feel more confident with a whiter smile.

Your teeth and gums must be healthy enough for whitening. Before recommending whitening, we will carefully evaluate your smile. We have the best dental hygienists in the Seattle area so contact Olympic View Dental for more information or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Chilton today.

What Are the Advantages Of Professional Teeth Whitening?

Fast and Effective Results

One advantage of in-office teeth whitening in Seattle is that it provides immediate and noticeable results. This dental procedure effectively lifts surface stains caused by various lifestyle habits. Unlike over-the-counter products, an in-office whitening session can give you a stunning, whiter smile quickly.

Tailored to Your Needs

The whitening process in a dental office considers each individual’s unique needs. To avoid tooth sensitivity, your dental professional will customize your treatment to match your desired shade and sensitivity level. This guarantees a pain-free experience and makes this whitening option suitable for sensitive teeth.

Enhances Oral Health

A dazzling white smile from professional teeth whitening isn’t just for cosmetics. The treatment also includes a deep cleaning process that helps improve your oral health. Removing surface stains and hidden tooth discoloration reduces the chance of oral infections and improves overall oral hygiene.

Different Teeth Whitening Solutions

In-Office Whitening/Professional Whitening

Professional teeth whitening treatment is popular for its quick and effective results. The whitening process is carried out in our Seattle-based dental office under the supervision of our experienced dentists, ensuring safety.

Custom Take-Home Whitening Kits

A more flexible approach to a whiter smile, these kits can be used in the comfort of your home and on your schedule. Regulated by our specialists, these kits are designed to be effective and safe while reducing tooth sensitivity.

Over-the-Counter Tooth Whitening Products

For those looking for a more affordable option, over-the-counter teeth whitening products are widely available in drugstores and supermarkets. These include:

  • Whitening toothpastes
  • Strips
  • Gels
  • Trays
  • Whitening mouth rinse

While they may be convenient and cost-effective, it’s important to note that these products may not provide the same level of effectiveness as professional or custom take-home solutions.

What to Expect and How the Process Works

1. Consultation

Before any teeth whitening procedure, we need to understand your dental history and examine the current condition of your teeth. This appointment will also give us a chance to discuss your desired shade of white and any concerns you may have.

We will explain the process, answer questions, and ensure that you are comfortable and confident with moving forward. This is an essential step in achieving successful results.

2. Customized Treatment Plan

Based on the results of your examination and consultation, we will create a personalized treatment plan for you. We will consider the current shade of your teeth, your desired shade, and any other factors that may affect the whitening process.

Having a customized treatment plan allows us to target specific areas and provide you with optimal results.

3. Whitening Process

We will begin the whitening process using a safe and effective bleaching agent that breaks down stains on your teeth. This allows for deep penetration of the enamel to remove any discoloration. The time duration for the whitening process may vary depending on your desired shade and the condition of your teeth. Typically, the process can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.

4. Post-Treatment Care

After the whitening process, we will provide you with instructions on how to maintain your new bright smile. These may include avoiding certain foods and beverages that may cause staining, regular brushing and flossing, and scheduling routine teeth cleaning appointments.

Teeth Whitening Care Tips

  • Limit intake of food and drinks known to stain teeth, like wine, coffee, berries, and soda.
  • Keep up with regular oral hygiene practices, including brushing, flossing, and using a recommended mouthwash.
  • Regularly visit us for check-ups and cleanings to keep surface stains in check.
  • Choose a toothpaste with whitening ingredients or use a whitening pen to touch up minor surface stains between visits.
  • Avoid smoking or using tobacco products, which can contribute to staining.
  • Limit sugar consumption as it supports the bacteria that cause tooth discoloration.
  • Drink plenty of water after meals and throughout the day to flush your mouth and prevent staining.

Cosmetic and Family dentist in Seattle, WA


Kim’s teeth had been both victim of neglect and dental fear. She was read to have her smile back. As we progressed through her treatment, Kim’s confidence grew, and her gorgeous new smile says it all!

Kim finally built up the courage to visit our office during the start of the pandemic. Her emotional story of fear and poor dentistry was presented with honesty and commitment and demanded our attention. We reviewed her x-rays and diagnostics along with leveraged compassion, care, and dental expertise to create a smile that left everyone filled with joy. We don’t fix teeth; we fix patients. In Kim’s case, we were able to not only improve her smile, but eliminate her dental fears!


Craig’s teeth were damaged from years of clenching and grinding due to stress. We came up with a plan to restore Craig’s smile and self-esteem!

Craig’s teeth suffered from years of neglect, resulting in a significant number of cavities, and punishing results of clenching and grinding (bruxism), especially at night. We sat down for a one-on-one consultation to develop a custom plan with the goal of restoring his smile and maintaining it for long-term success. Craig’s commitment and enthusiasm spread throughout our team as we custom-built his plan. His treatment resulted in a cosmetically pleasing, functional smile that was designed to resist any future stresses from bruxism.

Dr. Aranka

Dr. Aranka gave a lifetime commitment to his patients and community but did not give himself a lifetime of care for his oral health. We created a fabulous smile for him, and he shows it to us every day!

Dr. Aranka is a retired local physician who stepped through our doors. He was unhappy with his smile and the condition of his oral health. He was tired of quick fixes that ultimately did not last. We sat together in the consultation room and outlined a vision for a long-term solution that would give him a healthy, functioning, and aesthetically pleasing smile. Dr. Aranka now comes in every day smiling and thankful for what our team has provided him.


Marco didn’t like his smile but didn’t know what to do about it. Our initial consultation included examples of what could change, and now Marco couldn’t be happier with his smile!

Marco recently semi-retired from his career in commercial real estate. He’s always been a bubbly, funny man but always seemed to have a reservation about his smile. One day I asked Marco if he liked his smile, and he said he didn’t. So I invited him to a consultation and showed him all the changes that could be made aesthetically, from his gum line to coloration to lip support. We did a little recontouring for his lower arch, light dentistry for his upper arch, and a tooth bleaching, and Marco is now thrilled to share his smile.


Alexa didn’t like how her teeth looked and was ready for a smile transformation. She had overcome major life obstacles and was ready for a smile to match her new life. After neglecting her dental health for over 10 years, she made the brave decision to visit our office for a consultation.

Alexa and I discussed her smile goals and treatment options for long-term success. She put her full trust in us and completed multiple procedures including crown lengthening, implants, and full mouth reconstruction. As her treatment progressed, her confidence grew dramatically! We completed Botox and lip/cheek filler to enhance her already beautiful features and she could not be happier with the final results. Alexa is no longer scared of the dentist and her smile lights up any room she walks into!
