What Can Teeth Whitening Do For Me?

Screen Shot 2021 05 27 At 10.28.10 AmProfessional, in-office teeth whitening is one of the fastest and most effective cosmetic treatments available. Teeth whitening brightens and enhances the appearance of your teeth in as little as a single appointment at our office.

In-office teeth whitening involves the use of a powerful gel. This whitening gel is applied to the surface of your teeth and activated with a special light. The gel then works to break up stains and discolorations on your tooth enamel, lightening it until it is the desired shade of white. By the time you leave our office, your smile will be noticeably whiter.

Please remember that while professional whitening treatments can produce dramatic results when brightening your smile, they are not a permanent solution. Your teeth will become dull, stained or discolored over time due to:

  • The natural aging process
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Tobacco usage, including smoking
  • Illness and certain medications
  • Foods and drinks that stain
  • Fluorosis

You will need to receive professional whitening treatments periodically in order to maintain a white, bright smile.

We also make custom bleaching trays that can be used in the comfort of your own home. While not as fast as in office bleaching, it is a less expensive option that works well.
