Your teeth will naturally change color over time. Many food and beverages such as colas, coffee, red wine and chocolate will also stain your teeth, marring the bright white smile you had once when you were younger. Smoking cigarettes and cigars and chewing tobacco can also have a dulling effect on your teeth. Some medication and childhood illnesses along with poor oral hygiene can also change the color of your teeth.
Cosmetic dentistry offers a number of ways to change your smile into a bright vibrant white smile.
Teeth Whitening with Take Home Trays
Dr. Galloway has been restoring teeth to their natural white smile for more than thirty years using a variety of techniques. Dr. Galloway prefers using a custom tray whitening system and gel. In office whitening treatments can be very expensive and the results can be short lived. Bellevue cosmetic dentists Dr. James Austin and Dr. Hilarie Galloway have found the home bleaching system to be the most gentle, effective and most cost effective method available. The entire system including the trays, bleach and instructions for your entire mouth only costs $300.00.

How to Care for Your Newly Whitened Teeth
Your teeth are now white. How do you keep them that way? To ensure your teeth stay as white as possible Dr. Galloway and Dr. Song recommend consistent homecare which would include brushing and flossing, and visiting our office twice a year for regular teeth cleanings. Our doctors also recommend a very inexpensive home touch up kit which you can use on a yearly basis for touch ups to maintain your new bright smile. By following these simple steps your smile should stay white and bright.
