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 “bleaching” procedure.

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. 

In only a day or two your custom bleach splints will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear splints. With only a few minutes of wear per day, our special bleaching 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.

If you are sensitive to bleaching ask us about alternative options. 

Dental bleaching can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching 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 bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth trying.

How is teeth whitening done?

An impression is taken to make a custom tray that optimizes the bleaching procedure. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching 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.

Dental bleaching in many cases offers a low-cost, conservative avenue to improve tooth color and has been effective for many people.Thorough assessment to check for decay, fractures, recession previous restorations tooth wear, periodontal health, bleeding, tooth mobility and sensitivity is essential before any form of bleaching is undertaken.

Following such an evaluation your dentist will review which of the several bleaching techniques that best suit your dental situation and your esthetic goals. As always the best treatment is the one customized to the individual.
