Would you like to enjoy the confidence that radiates from a bright, white smile? If you’re pleased with the alignment and spacing of your teeth and all that’s missing from your smile is a whiter color that you just can’t seem to attain with brushing and flossing, then a tooth whitening procedure may be your best option. Discoloration may be created by any number of substances, including sweet foods, coffee, tobacco, and sugary beverages such as sodas and fruit juices. Honolulu cosmetic dentist Dr. Adachi offers a tooth whitening kit to his patients that is safe, effective, and sure to leave your teeth with an impressive shade of white that should last for about six months (provided you keep brushing and flossing regularly). For a quicker and easier solution, however, our brand new in-house whitening service is your best option. With up to 10 shades of brightening accomplished in a single visit, we don’t blame you for being interested!

In-House Teeth Whitening
Expert in-office teeth bleaching is the most popular cosmetic dental treatment on the planet. Unlike home-use lightening systems that incorporate low-dose bleaching agents, in-office whitening (also called power bleaching, power whitening, expert whitening or chairside whitening) takes place under carefully monitored conditions that allow for the safe, regulated, pain-free use of a highly concentrated bleaching agent—yielding outcomes that are visible immediately after the session.
Our in-house bleaching procedure can help you accomplish a smile up to seven shades lighter in one short session.
Tooth whitening has been medically shown to be fast, safe and effective. When you come in for your examination, we will determine if you are a great candidate for bleaching, help you pick the proper maintenance regimen and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Bleaching decreases discolorations from either natural aging or the consumption of coffee, tea, soft drinks or other tooth-staining products that can discolor teeth at rapid speed. Maintenance bleaching and “touch ups” can help fight repeating discoloration.
Exactly what to Expect on Your Teeth Whitening Visit:
The procedure is hassle-free. At our comfortable and calming Honolulu dental practice, your teeth whitening adventure will be as easy as a Hawaiian vacation.
After answering any questions and calming any nerves you may have, our trained Honolulu dental professionals will apply a strong, but gentle dental grade bleaching gel liberally to all your teeth. Then, with the help of an LED cooling light, the stains on your teeth will be lifted and lightened within minutes. After removing the gel, your teeth will be a noticable 1-10 shades lighter. Seven shades being the average result. It is advised that you have a teeth cleaning done by a dental hygienist 1-3 months before your lightening treatment.
