Teeth Whitening
Tooth whitening lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look.
Professional teeth whitening is the safest and most effective way to whiten your teeth. It is also considered the most economical cosmetic dental procedure. This professionally supervised procedure will ensure sensitive gums and tooth-root surfaces are protected.
Note, we always advise patients considering teeth whitening services to schedule an oral examination first to determine if tooth discoloration is the result of a dental condition.
Professional whitening can be done in two ways:
  • In-office whitening: The procedure will begin by placing a protective barrier over your gums and tooth-root surfaces. A retractor is then used to separate the lips and cheeks from the teeth and a professional-strength hygiene peroxide gel is applied. The gel will remain on the teeth for approximately one hour before it is removed. Results are immediate.
  • Whitening: A mold of your teeth will be taken to create two customized trays, one for the top and one for the bottom. You will apply whitening gel to the trays and fit them over your teeth for one hour at a time.
