Tooth Whitening

Tooth Whitening is a popular procedure to make teeth whiter and brighter, and therefore more attractive. Bleaching can be used to whiten stained and discolored teeth, or simply to enhance a dull smile. Either way, tooth whitening is a safe and relatively painless procedure ideal for most patients. Our office offers two methods of whitening: in-office whitening and tray whitening.

Tooth Whitening from a Dentist is an ideal procedure for anyone wanting immediate results. Because the entire procedure takes place in our dental office in about 2 hours, it is the perfect choice for busy individuals. In this process, a protective gel is applied to your gums to protect the soft tissue. Activating gel is then applied to teeth for whitening - without a light. The technician will stay in the room with you throughout the entire process. Once optimum whitening has been reached the solution is then cleaned off. The results are brilliant and your teeth retain their newfound sheen for a long time with proper care. Finally, we take impressions of your teeth to create custom trays for at home touch-up, and give you instructions for keeping your smile bright.

Home Tooth Whitening is a less expensive whitening treatment you can use while in the comfort of your own home to gradually whiten teeth. We will first take an impression of your teeth to create a customized clear tray that you will wear to whiten your teeth. Within a few days your trays will be ready to be picked up and we will show you how to apply the special bleaching material to the trays. The whitening gel trays should be worn 30-60 minutes up to twice a day. At the end of this period, you will see a noticeable difference. Occasional treatment can be used at your convenience to maintain your new smile.
