Teeth Whitening

Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple whitening or “bleaching” procedure.


What are the details?

It’s safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to begin bleaching. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much you show when you talk and smile.

In only a day or two your custom bleaching trays will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear trays. With only a few hours of use per day, our special bleaching agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel in a very short time without permanently altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional retreatment is needed to maintain your new smile. We’ll want to take “after” photos at your next appointment.

Dental whitening can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in whitening 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 choice, but because of the low cost of whitening treatments, toothwhitening is nearly always worth a solid try.

For very severely stained teeth, crowns or veneers may be more appropriate.


Considerations

Over the counter whitening agents are available for purchase at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can cause harm to the gums and teeth, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends.
