Teeth Whitening

What is Teeth Whitening?

Professional whitening can eliminate years of stains and deep discoloration. We offer both in-office and take-home whitening that delivers high-quality results that you’ll need to see to believe. Whitening can be done at any time, but it’s not uncommon to want a brighter and whiter smile for special occasions and events. Our goal is to offer you expert whitening that doesn’t cause severe sensitivity or pain.

Why is Teeth Whitening needed?

You may want or need teeth whitening because your teeth are discolored, yellowed and dull. We provide treatment using professional whitening products that truly work to improve your smile. Some of the reasons your smile might be stained and dull include:

  • You’re a smoker
  • You drink a lot of tea, coffee or soda
  • You chew tobacco
  • You eat a lot of staining foods like berries, chocolate and sauces
  • You are attending a big event like a wedding, graduation or reunion
  • You’re older and experiencing natural yellowing of your teeth

Who’s a good candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Most patients can safely whiten their teeth in our office. It’s important that you have been to see a dentist at least once in the past year. Keep in mind that even professional whitening may not change the color or shade of your restorations like veneers, crowns, bridges or dentures. Whitening works best on natural teeth that are stained and discolored.

What happens during the process for Teeth Whitening?

We first consult with you regarding which whitening treatment is best for you. We offer in-office and take-home whitening to meet your needs. In-office whitening is done in about an hour and involves applying a gel to your teeth and using a bright light to accelerate the results. Take-home whitening involves making special trays just for your smile that are used in conjunction with a patented whitening gel. Whether you choose in-office or take-home whitening, you can experience a brighter and more confident smile.

If you think you may benefit from or need professional whitening, call us today and we can help to get you in for an appointment.
