Teeth whitening improves discoloration by removing intrinsic and extrinsic tooth stains to reveal a brighter and more youthful smile. Patients who get their teeth professionally whitened feel more confident in their smiles and are more eager to put themselves out there.
Having whiter teeth can make other cosmetic imperfections such as chips and cracks less noticeable and the treatment is simple, fast, and non-invasive. Whitening treatment is the most affordable cosmetic treatment and it gives patients the perfect whitening boost for special events and formal photos.
Our in-office whitening treatment is perfect for special occasions and instances when you need a fast whitening boost. A cheek protractor will be placed in your mouth to keep your teeth exposed. We will also apply a desensitizing gel to your gums to prevent irritation.
Then, the whitening agent is applied to your teeth and activated with a UV light. After about an hour, we will rinse this off and your teeth can be up to 10 shades lighter after a single session. This is the best option for severe staining and fast results.
Too busy or don’t have the time for in-office whitening treatment? Have sensitive teeth? Try our take-home whitening treatment that produces results that are just as effective without UV light over 2 weeks.
We’ll need you to come in for a very quick 15-minute appointment so we can take impressions of your teeth and send them to a dental lab for whitening tray fabrication. After a couple of weeks, you can pick up your whitening trays, products, and instructions.
Apply the whitening agent to the inside of your trays and pop them over your teeth, then carry on about your day. Just follow the instructions for how long to leave them on and how often to do the treatment. Within 2 weeks, your teeth will be just as white as an in-office treatment and with less tooth sensitivity!
You should keep your exposure to staining foods and drinks to a minimum. These include coffee, tea, red wine, berries, juice, dark sauces, balsamic vinegar, soda, and soy sauce. When you drink a flavored beverage, try to sip through a straw. Avoid tobacco products entirely.
