What is professional Teeth Whitening?
Whitening your teeth can remove years worth of stains and deep discoloration. Unfortunately, when your teeth are discolored or stained, you might not be happy with your overall appearance. While many different things can contribute to a stained smile, we offer professional-quality whitening to fit your needs. Our in-office and take-home whitening options are great for patients wanting a complete change to their smile.
Why would you need or want Teeth Whitening?
Whether you smoke cigarettes, drink a lot of coffee or are taking a medication that changes the color of your teeth, whitening can help to improve your appearance. The way that whitening works is by lifting stains and the deep discoloration that dulls your smile. Many of our patients like to whiten their teeth before big events, like reunions or weddings. Results are long-lasting, and you can touch-up your smile as it begins to dull in the future.
What makes you a candidate for Teeth Whitening?
Whitening works best on natural teeth. It will have little to no effect whatsoever on restorations like crowns, bridges, veneers or bonding. Because we offer both in-office and take-home whitening options, you can easily choose what’s best for you. We will examine your smile to ensure that your teeth are healthy enough to be whitened.
What happens during the Teeth Whitening procedure?
For our in-office whitening, we’ll have you sit comfortably in one of our operatories. The next step is to apply a whitening gel to all of your teeth. Using cotton rolls and special devices, we help to keep your lips from touching your teeth and diluting this gel. A bright light helps to accelerate results while you’re in the office. This whitening method takes about 60 minutes or less to complete. Take-home whitening involves making customized trays that you’ll wear at home. We will tell you when and how long to wear your whitening trays in order for them to work effectively.
