Reveal Your Whiter, Beautiful Smile
The shade of your teeth may have a significant effect on your appearance. A white, bright smile is associated with youth, while a dark or yellowed smile may cause you to appear aged. If you feel unhappy with this aspect of your smile, we can reveal the sparkling smile you desire with professional teeth whitening.
Discoloration occurs as the result of many potential factors. Tobacco, super-pigmented foods and beverages, and the simple process of aging can all affect the brightness of your smile. While brushing, flossing, and certain over-the-counter (OTC) products may address minor discoloration, you will need professional teeth whitening for a dramatic cosmetic improvement. OTC products may offer exceptional results but their universal formulations lack the strength of professional systems and may damage your teeth. This becomes particularly problematic as a result of overuse when attempting to achieve the shade you desire.
Questions About Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening relies on the use of a hydrogen-peroxide-based bleaching gel. If you choose in-office whitening, we will apply the gel to your teeth for you. The process may include the use of a special light to activate the gel. Rest assured, we will protect your soft tissues, including your lips and gums. Within approximately one hour, your teeth will appear dramatically whiter. Or, for at-home teeth whitening, you will apply the gel yourself. We will furnish you with custom-fitted trays and bleaching gel. You will wear gel-filled trays once a day over a course of treatment that will last approximately two weeks for a smile several shades whiter and brighter.
