It's safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to begin teeth whitening. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much of each shows when you talk and smile.
In only a day or two, your custom bleach trays will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you place into the clear, almost invisible trays. With minimal wear time per day, our special whitening agents quickly remove stains from of your enamel without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the brightness you want, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile. We'll want to take before and after photos at your appointments to show you your progress!
Teeth whitening can be used to correct many tooth discolorations. These discolorations may have been caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful, brilliant smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only option, but because of the low cost and low risk of bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a solid try.
Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening
How is Teeth Whitening Done?
An impression is taken to make a specialized bleaching tray to hold bleach material against the teeth while protecting the surrounding gum tissue. The material is used each night for about 3-4 hours for a week or two, after which significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant.
Some patients prefer to avoid wearing bleach trays at home for a period of weeks and are interested in a quicker, more convenient option. Our in-office whitening is a wonderful alternative with which you can achieve similar results with only one visit to our office. Powerful bleaching agents are applied carefully to your teeth and are then activated by light to accelerate the whitening process, providing nearly instantaneous results. Patients walk out of the office with a brighter smile and boosted confidence. We still make you a customized bleaching tray to take home for the occasional touch-up.
For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology offers improvements in yellowing, aging, or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or veneers may be more appropriate.
Many over-the-counter bleaching gels, strips, and trays are available at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can harm the gums and teeth, it’s best to use products that our practice recommends. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
