Obtain a Brilliant Smile
Patients often feel embarrassed or frustrated by teeth that do not look as white or bright as they have the potential to appear. Though treatment with over-the-counter (OTC) products may offer minor improvement, we encourage patients looking to brighten their smile discuss professional teeth whitening with our team. By choosing a system best suited to your particular whitening goals, we can help you achieve a beautiful bright smile.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
To whiten your teeth, your dentist will provide you with two options. You may visit us for an in-office treatment that will last no longer than two hours. Zoom! Whitening involves applying a bleaching gel to the teeth and activating the gel with a curing light, removing surface discoloration. Or, you may choose at-home whitening trays custom-fitted to your teeth – you will administer the cosmetic treatment on your own at home over the course of approximately two weeks.
Treatment includes the use of peroxide-based whitening gel placed on your teeth. The active ingredients address surface stains and penetrate your teeth to lift deeper stains. We will provide protection to ensure your gums remain comfortable and to prevent sensitivity.
Why Choose Teeth Whitening?
