What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a process offered at our practice to lighten and brighten teeth. This process removes stains or discoloration from food, drinks, tobacco, or certain medications. Our process provides accelerated whitening that is safe and does not damage the teeth or gums. The active ingredient breaks down during the whitening process, and allows oxygen to get into the enamel of the teeth. As a result, the teeth become brighter and whiter in color. Professional teeth whitening can whiten teeth up to ten shades lighter, and many patients see results after just a few treatments. Our goal is to help patients feel confident about their smile, and we are here to help get you get that bright white smile you desire.

What to expect with our teeth whitening services

Our in-office or chairside whitening treatment typically takes an hour and uses a highly concentrated bleaching gel. The gel can remove stains from foods, beverages, tobacco, and medications. A light is used to activate the gel and whiten teeth. With this treatment patients can see results instantly. The process is simple and effective yielding amazing results.

We also offer whitening kits to take home for patients that would like to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own home. Custom trays will be made in our office for you to use along with our bleaching gel. After the whitening treatment patients may experience some sensitivity, but this should subside after a few days. We may recommend a special toothpaste to help alleviate sensitivity after using our whitening system. Our at home whitening treatment produces amazing results, and patients can see a difference after only a few treatments.
