Teeth Whitening for Baton Rouge
What Is Teeth Whitening?
Many people would love to makeover their smile, but don’t have the time or budget for extensive cosmetic dentistry. Teeth whitening is the fast, inexpensive, and easy way to have a smile you will feel more confident about sharing with the world.
Kidder Dental offers two whitening options – in-office or take-home. We often recommend doing a combination of both options for the best results!
How does the whitening process work?
- Step One: ImpressionsWe start by making impressions of your teeth to create your custom-fitted whitening trays.
Custom-fitted trays work better than over-the-counter ones because they are created specifically for your unique smile. They hug your teeth better and are crafted for a comfortable fit.
- Step Two: Application of Whitening GelAfter making sure the gums, cheeks, and lips are protected, we start application of the whitening gel.
We apply the gel in multiple steps to take advantage of its most active phase. Typically, two to three treatments achieve the best results.
- Step Three: At-Home Follow-UpAfter the procedure is finished, the at-home whitening trays are created and sent home along with syringes filled with whitening gel.
Depending on your sensitivity and your goals, we have three different strengths of professional whitening gel so we can minimize sensitivity, but also maximize results.
After two to three weeks of whitening at home, your smile will be four to six shades whiter.

I had a patient who hated her front teeth. She was a professional cheerleader, beautiful and in great shape, but she was so self-conscious about her smile. We whitened her teeth and did some very minor cosmetic work, and it really changed her life. She radiated confidence! That season she was chosen as the team's pro-bowl cheerleader, and I think a lot of that came from how confident she became.

FAQs About Teeth Whitening
- When should I whiten my teeth?Give your self-confidence a boost and have a camera-ready smile by whitening your teeth before a big event such as a wedding, graduation, or reunion. You’ll look and feel great!
We also recommend doing whitening before any cosmetic dentistry on your front teeth or before any restorative dentistry – implants, crowns, bridges – so your dental restoration will match the color of your teeth at their whitest.
Plus, we always recommend patients whiten their teeth while they are in treatment with Invisalign® because the aligners make a perfect whitening tray.
- Will it make my teeth sensitive?Yes, it probably will make your teeth more sensitive, but this is only temporary.
Any sensitivity to hot or cold usually wears off a day or two after finishing your whitening treatment. Teeth whitening is a very safe procedure and well-researched. We can adjust the strength of the whitening gel according to your desired results and any sensitivity.
- Is teeth whitening expensive?Not at all. It’s fairly inexpensive.
An investment in your smile is the best use you can make of your cosmetic budget. We spend a lot of time and money on make-up, hair, and clothes. But your smile is always with you; it’s always on!
Having a beautiful smile is also one of the best ways to boost your confidence and often has a positive effect on other areas of your life – work and social. All in all, teeth whitening gives you the most bang for your buck!
- Will the effects of the teeth whitening last?Yes, it will.
However, if you have been eating or drinking foods that cause staining such as coffee or wine, you might notice some loss of brightness. Simply use your at-home trays for a quick whitening refresher.
One or two treatments with our professional grade gel will restore your smile to its whitest and brightest again.
