What is Teeth Whitening?
Whitening is a way to completely get rid of stains and deep discoloration on your teeth. If you’re currently unhappy with your smile, it is time for you to consider professional-quality whitening. We offer both in-office as well as out-patient whitening that you can do in the comfort of your own home. Your results are long-lasting, and we can help to monitor and treat any instances of sensitivity related to the whitening treatment.
Why might Teeth Whitening be needed?
You might be planning a big event, like a wedding or a class reunion. You might not like the way that your teeth look because of stains and deep discoloration. Your might can become discolored for a variety of reasons. Whether you’re a smoker, drink a lot of coffee and cola or you’re taking a medication that impacts the color of your teeth, whitening is an effective way of eliminating these problems.
Who is a candidate for Teeth Whitening?
Most patients who would like to have their teeth professionally whitened can come in for treatment. The treatment is best done on natural teeth, as it will have little to no impact on restorations that you currently have in your mouth. You can touch-up your results any time you want. However, we recommend whitening only about once a year to prevent it from causing damage to your enamel.
What happens during the Teeth Whitening process?
In-office whitening involves applying a gel to the teeth. This gel helps to lift and dissolve stains, making the teeth appear whiter. The gel is activated by a bright light that is placed over your smile. You will have the gel removed and reapplied halfway through the treatment process. You’ll have a beautifully white smile in just under an hour with our in-office whitening option. Take-home whitening involves making custom-made trays for you to wear at home with our patented whitening gel.
