Teeth Whitening

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 procedures. You may choose to do the in-office whitening called Zoom! or have bleach trays made to whiten at home.

What are the details of teeth whitening?

It’s safe, quick, and inexpensive. 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 tooth structure you show when you talk and smile.

Within a day or two  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 clear whitening trays. With only a few hours of wear per day or night, our special whitening agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel in a very short 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 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, whitening is nearly always the first option to improve the shade of ones teeth.

How is teeth whitening done?

Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening

  • Corrects brown, yellow and spotted tooth staining
  • Recommended and works on all people 16 years or older
  • Is a near-permanent solution for a dull smile, restoring brightness and brings a smile alive

An impression is taken to make custom whitening trays to hold the whitening solution against the teeth. The material is used 3-4 hours a day, either during the day or night, for a week or two. At the end of this time, significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is dramatic. For confidence in appearance, whitening technology allows us to promise improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or porcelain veneers may be more appropriate.
