Professional Teeth Whitening Services Now Available For Patients In And Around Madison, AL
January 5, 2023 – Patients in the Madison, AL area can now get their teeth whitened by qualified dental professionals. This cosmetic dental treatment offers high quality services and technology to give patients the smile they desire.
It is possible to get teeth whitening products in stores to try at home but getting this treatment done by trained professionals is the most effective and long lasting way to get whiter teeth. It is also safer to get this treatment done by a professional, as they can tailor your treatment to suit your needs specifically.
Although many people think it is more cost effective to whiten their teeth at home, many dentists strongly advise against this for many reasons. Below is a list of some of the benefits of getting teeth whitening done by a dental professional:
- The products used in professional teeth whitening are only available for trained professionals and are known to outperform store products and home methods. This means you can get the most effective treatment for an affordable price.
- Professional cosmetic dental treatment is also longer lasting. This means patients will need to get their teeth whitened less often by a professional than they would if they were using store products or home methods. This helps cut down on costs as well
- Many patients do not know that there are actually many different types of whitening solutions. Dr. Barnett will be able to walk patients through their differences, as well as what solution might be the best course of treatment.
- Divine Expressions Family Dentistry offers some of the highest quality teeth whitening methods in the Madison, AL area. Their dentists are trusted and highly rated so they can give you the best and most effective care possible.

Divine Expressions Offers Safe, Effective and Painless Madison Teeth Whitening Treatments
Many people feel embarrassed or self-conscious about their smile. They have stains, discoloration or other imperfections that won’t go away even after using whitening toothpastes or DIY treatments. However, they’re afraid of going to a dentist because possible costs or dental phobia.
Divine Expressions can help people who need teeth whitening but are concerned about costs or possible pain.
Its Madison teeth whitening services are affordable, and in the long run, more cost-effective than over the counter treatments that don’t work.
Commercial whitening tooth pastes or strips can only remove surface stains, not the deep discoloration caused by years of drinking coffee or tea, or smoking cigarettes. That’s because they only use mild abrasives or very low concentrations of whitening ingredients.
In fact, the American Dental Association says that many of the ingredients in home whitening treatments—baking soda, salt, turmeric, etc.—have not been clinically proven to work. Customers can spend hundreds or thousands of dollars, and not see any significant benefit. Plus, all the experimentation with different treatments may end up causing gum irritation and damage to the tooth enamel.
However, professional whitening treatments use professional-grade hydrogen peroxide, which has been proven effective for even deep discoloration and strains. It is also done with a dentist’s supervision, which is far safer than teeth bleaching or whitening kits sold online.
Furthermore, in-clinic whitening treatments are not painful. There are no drills, injections, or intimidating dental equipment.
The dentist will simply place a plastic mouth retractor to pull back the cheek and gums away from the teeth, before applying the special whitening gel on the tooth surface. Aside from the slight tugging at the cheeks from wearing this mouth guard, it is not uncomfortable. Most patients end up falling asleep while waiting for the gel to set.
After one hour, the gel is removed—to reveal whiter, brighter teeth. Usually, patients are already quite satisfied with the results. But if they want to go a few more shades lighter, they can return in a few months for a follow-up treatment.
The Divine Expressions team is very friendly and warm, and will go out of their way to assure patients who are anxious about getting a dental treatment for the first time. The clinic is also quite comfortable, and equipped with the latest technology for faster, safer, and more efficient treatments.
Aside from the Madison teeth whitening services, Divine Expressions clinic also has other dental treatments to help restore one’s smile. One of their unique offerings is the “Snap On Smile” which helps hide stained, chipped, crooked or missing teeth. It only takes 2 visits, and no drills and extractions are necessary.

Divine Expressions Restores Smiles with Dental Implants
Divine Expressions is a family dentist that can handle Madison dental implants and many other complex dental procedures.
Dental implants are an option for people who don’t what to deal with dentures or partials. When they are taken care of adequately, implants may never need to be replaced. And, fortunately, dental implants need no special maintenance. Their care is just like that of natural teeth.
Divine Expressions has a high success rate with dental implants in patients that have tooth loss from injury or disease. Whether it’s something the patient was born with or the condition developed over time, implants can effectively replace missing teeth.
Divine Expressions dentists may recommend implants for patients with advanced gum disease, traumatic injury to the mouth, worn-down teeth, or gaps where teeth never grew in.
Besides giving the patient a gorgeous smile, dental implants have many other advantages:
- Permanent – Dental implants are not removed for cleaning like dentures.
- Strong – The patient can eat normally with dental implants, regardless of where they are in the mouth.
- Reverse speech issues – Speech problems caused by missing teeth are a thing of the past once dental implants are in place because the tongue has something to touch to make the appropriate sounds.
- Comfortable – The hardware necessary for dental implants is inside the gum, so there is no discomfort once dental implants are healed.
- Strengthen the jaw bone – The metal post stimulates bone growth in the jaw, fortifying the new implant and surrounding teeth.
Dental implants are, essentially, replacement teeth. They have a “root” and a custom-made artificial tooth on top. Done correctly, a dental implant looks exactly like the patient’s original teeth.
Having dental implants improves oral health, but it also gives patients the ability to smile without worry or embarrassment. Because this is a complex procedure requiring 2 or more visits, the average cost of implants is $1,500 to $2,000.

Not only are Dr. Barnett, Dr. Crawford, and Dr. Embry are good at what they do, they’re also good at making patients feel at ease. The Divine Expressions office is relaxing, and the staff always goes the extra mile to give patients a positive experience.
Divine Expressions offers periodontist services to prevent and treat gum disease, as well as dentures, general dentistry, Invisalign, and “Snap-on Smile,” a cutting-edge veneer-style device that fits over the patient’s teeth with little or no filing.

Madison Dentist Offers Professional Teeth Whitening Services
MADISON, AL – The staff of Divine Expressions Family Dentistry in Madison, AL, is proud to offer teeth whitening services for their community. Teeth whitening done in a dentist’s office can provide faster, cleaner, and more effective results than over-the-counter home remedies.
Teeth can be stained in a variety of ways – through the drinks we enjoy, like coffee and tea, or through simple aging. This dental discoloration can happen either on the surface level (extrinsic), when compounds build up, or inside the enamel and dentin (intrinsic), when certain disorders or aging take hold.
The Divine Expressions team offers whitening services for both intrinsic and extrinsic stains. These services are relatively quick and painless, and have a wide range of benefits:
- They allow you to feel more confident in your smile.
- They may help you to appear younger.
- The treatments are non-invasive and simple.
- The cost of one long-lasting in-office treatment is much less than repeated over-the-counter treatments that are far less effective.
Teeth whitening in a dentist’s office can cost on average around $650. The service is not often covered by insurance, though Divine Expressions does accept most major insurance providers. Patients can work with the team to make financial arrangements through CareCredit or the office’s in-house dental plan, Divine Blue.
