Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening


A recent study showed that 80% of Americans would like to have whiter teeth. We’re not surprised. Brilliantly white teeth make an impact. In fact, research indicates that a person who has a brighter smile conveys a message of youth, vitality, and success. Interested? We thought so! To give your smile dazzle and shine, Drs. Jancy Parkerson-McGovern and Daniel McGovern recommend take-home teeth whitening. This proven bleaching method uses custom-made trays and professional-strength teeth whitening gel to significantly brighten smiles

White Teeth like Nature Intended

Our teeth are naturally meant to be white because the protective enamel layer that surrounds each tooth is made of calcium, a mineral that is white in color. However, enamel usually contains a hint of gray or yellow, too. Because enamel is translucent, the darker or more yellow layer of dentin below enamel shows through, especially as we age and our enamel begins to thin.

How Stained and Discolored Teeth Happen

Your smile can darken because of both extrinsic and intrinsic discoloration. Extrinsic discoloration happens as a result of having colorful foods and beverages that stain the enamel surface. Coffee, tea, red wine, cola, sports drinks, fruit juices, tomatoes, and berries are only a few of the culprits that can steal your white smile. If you use chewing or smoking tobacco—and we hope that you don’t—then the nicotine in these can also darken your teeth.

Intrinsic discoloration happens deeper inside the tooth. For example, ingesting too much fluoride as a child can darken permanent teeth. A serious injury to the mouth can lead to bleeding within a tooth that changes the color. There are also some medications, such as the antibiotic tetracycline, certain kinds of chemotherapy, or radiation for cancer, that can cause intrinsic discoloration.

Take Home Teeth Whitening

At Chattanooga Dental Arts, our dentists are committed to not only the health of your teeth and gums, but also the appearance of your smile. We know what a white and bright smile can do for a person’s attitude, confidence, and happiness. That’s why we offer an outstanding take-home whitening system.

We’ll take an impression of your teeth in order to fabricate custom-fitted mouth trays right here in our office. These trays hold the whitening solution close to your teeth and prevent saliva from diluting the efficacy of the gel. All you have to do is fill each tray with the professional grade bleaching gel that we provide and wear them for the length of time that either Drs. Jancy Parkerson-McGovern and Daniel McGovern recommends.

Stains and discolorations from food, beverages, tobacco, and aging disappear gradually to reveal radiant teeth. Use as directed for one to four weeks to achieve your whitest, brightest smile.

Another advantage of using a take-home whitening system is that you can easily touch-up your smile whenever you notice that your teeth are beginning to look dull or darker. The same whitening solution you used to initially transform your smile is perfect for the occasional touch-up, too!

What patients say about us

Here's some kind words from a few of our happy patients.


It was my first time here, and I was blew away by the staff, these are the nicest people ever, I had a warm welcome upon entering and the hospitality did not stop. What a great staff. If you need a dentist I highly recommend you to give this business a try. My hygienist was the best, and I felt really comfortable with her. I had went to a dentist up the road first and I wasn’t treated the same upon my entry to their establishment so I remembered talking to a ladie that worked at this dental office sometime back, I drove down the street until I saw this office and I’m so glad I did. Thanks for a great dental experience.

My experience has been great! I get extremely nervous when I go to the dentist. They make sure I’m comfortable and always make me feel more relaxed. Everyone on the staff that I’ve encountered have been super nice!

Front desk is always very kind and helpful. Michele is great, best and most thorough cleanings I’ve ever received. Had to get a crown today, Dr Jancy and Jessica were absolutely terrific. Most painless and comfortable experience at any dentist office I’ve ever been to. Highly recommend

I absolutely love Michelle. If you are looking for a dental hygienist, pick her! Dr Parkerson is very thorough and I am pleased with the abutment and crown she placed. She was very caring and made sure I was not in any pain during the procedure. They are the best!
