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” procedure.
What are the details of teeth whitening?
It’s safe, quick and effective. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth. 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 approximately one week your custom whitening trays will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special whitening agent that you put into the trays. With 30-60 minutes of wear per day, our whitening agent bubbles the stains right out of your enamel time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment 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 and 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 teeth whitening is nearly always worth a solid try.
How is teeth whitening done?
Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening
- Corrects brown, yellow and spotted tooth staining
- Works on people of any age
- Is a near-permanent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and bringing a smile to life
An impression is taken to make specialized trays for your top and bottom teeth to hold the whitening solution against the teeth. The material is used each night for about 30-60 minutes for 10-14 days. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant.
Considerations for Teeth Whitening
Over-the-counter whitening agents are available for purchase at drug stores and pharmacies. However, these products tend to not be as effective as those prescribed by your dentist.
