Just had my second visit to Dr. Upton. On my first visit, Dr. and his assistant, Jessica, did a thorough evaluation of my situation. He asked me questions about my dental history and actually listened carefully to my concerns. Then he left to review my x-rays and options for treatment. When he returned, he gave me some options, which I REALLY appreciated. He even took into consideration my dietary habits and the fact I don't like prescription medications. Not even my physicians gave me that kind of concern!! Today I had my tooth pulled out and he took into consideration my financial situation and did it under local anesthesia, where my previous experience was done under general anesthesia. It was less expensive and totally tolerable. I'm glad that he considers the whole patient, the tolerance to pain, the budget and the treatment preferences. I also appreciate that he sat on a stool and spoke to me face to face. His office staff, Jessica, Megan and Priscilla are all equally attentive and considerate. Thank you everyone 💓! Yes, I would recommend their services to anyone in need of dental care.

I’m thankful that I found this dental practice. From the staff, upfront, to the dental assistant Kelly, and Dr. Baker, they have been absolutely wonderful. After having had previous experiences that were not ideal, I was reluctant to find a new dentist that I could trust. I read all the five star reviews for Upton & Baker and tried it out for myself, very happy that I did as they make you feel right at home. Dr. Baker is absolutely wonderful and fantastic and I can’t say enough good things about him. He’s Very professional and skilled, top to bottom. Cannot recommend him more highly. Dr. Baker is so thorough and informative, and lets you know every step of the way what’s going on so there are no surprises. Very calming, as well. Thank you!!

This was by far the best dental visit I have had in years. Priscilla was great assisting me with getting my appointment booked and offering me an earlier appointment when one came available. Bonnie was AMAZING!! She went very in depth in my cleaning and took the time to help me understand what she was doing and the benefits of each step, no dentist has ever taken the time to help me understand more about my gums and teeth like she did...very educational! Doctor Kevin Upton was great too, he is very friendly and personable. Will be booking all of my dentist appointments with them from now on. 10/10

    Top Teeth Whitening Options

    Teeth whitening efficiently brightens your teeth’s natural shade without the need for invasive methods such as veneers. Whether you choose an in-office treatment or adhere to the guidelines of your take-home kit, you can expect to see results without enduring persistent sensitivity.

    Professional Teeth Whitening

    For many individuals, the optimal approach to achieving brighter teeth is through professional in-office treatments. In such sessions, a bleaching agent is carefully applied to the teeth with the use of custom-fitted trays. A laser then gently warms the solution, activating oxygen molecules that delve into the enamel to lift stains. This method of laser teeth whitening provides instant results and is designed to minimize the likelihood of sensitivity and irritation to the gums.

    Take-home whitening kit

    For those wishing to brighten their teeth within the cozy confines of their home, we provide tailor-made take-home whitening kits. These kits include personalized trays designed to fit snugly over your teeth, ensuring even and thorough lightening of the enamel. Our custom trays, unlike over-the-counter options, are crafted from impressions of your own teeth, offering a fit that not only enhances whitening efficacy but also minimizes the chances of experiencing tooth sensitivity and gum irritation. These take-home kits work to gently but effectively lighten the enamel over a period of three to four weeks.

    Cost Of Professional Teeth Whitening In Wake Forest

    Professional in-office teeth whitening treatments can range from $600 to $1200, while take-home kits offer a more budget-friendly option at about $300 to $600, still under the supervision of dental experts.

    The substantial price difference stems from various factors, including the benefits and drawbacks of in-office treatments, take-home kits, and over-the-counter products:

    In-office Whitening:
    • Conducted by skilled dental professionals for precision and safety.
    • Highly effective, significantly reducing the risk of gum irritation and prolonged sensitivity.
    • Uses potent whitening agents not available for at-home use, ensuring quicker results.

    • Achieves noticeably brighter teeth in a matter of weeks.
    • The custom-fitted trays ensure easy application, lower the risk of irritating gums, and guarantee uniform whitening agent distribution.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Plaque forms when bacteria from food and drink particles aren’t cleaned properly from your teeth. Over time, plaque hardens to form tartar, which can only be removed by a dentist or hygienist. This yellow coating can form on or around your teeth if you don’t brush often enough or thoroughly enough.

    Although teeth whitening is generally safe, it’s possible to encounter some sensitivity in your teeth. This sensitivity might occur during your initial treatments and could decrease as you continue with the process. To minimize any discomfort, it’s crucial to adhere strictly to the guidelines provided with your take-home kit or any over-the-counter products you use.

    Should your front teeth have any crowns, veneers, or fillings, be aware that these will not alter in color through the whitening process. Consequently, whitening the teeth around them might cause these dental restorations to become more noticeable.

    Teeth whitening is not often covered by insurance.

    Depending on the type of whitening the results can last anywhere from 6 months to 3 years
