Tooth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.
What does tooth whitening involve?
We offer both "take home" custom trays and "in office" whitening procedures.
"Take home whitening trays" require a visit to make highly accurate molds of your teeth so we can fabricate custom trays/covers. Once the custom trays are made you wear them at night with the whitening solution inside. This generally takes about 2 weeks of nightly wear to whiten your teeth.
"In office whitening" requires a one hour visit to have a strong whitening solution painted onto your teeth. We use a special paint on barrier to protect your gums from irritation during this procedure. In some cases it is necessary to use a combination of both techniques for best results.
You will receive care instructions for your teeth and trays, and be encouraged to visit your dentist regularly to help maintain a beautiful, healthy, white smile.
