Teeth whitening is one of the most commonly-requested cosmetic dental treatments because most people experience teeth stains and discoloration at some point in their lives. Whether they’re because of a daily coffee habit or simply the result of getting older, stains on your teeth can make you feel self-conscious about your smile. Teeth whitening makes a dramatic difference in your appearance, giving you a radiant smile you can be proud to show the world.
We offer two forms of teeth whitening treatments:
In-Office Teeth Whitening
For the most impressive results in the shortest amount of time, choose in-office bleaching. After a single visit to our office, you’ll leave with a noticeably brighter smile. The process starts by placing a rubber shield or protective gel over your gums to protect them from irritation. Next, a carbide peroxide bleaching agent is applied to your teeth and a specialized laser light is turned on to activate this bleaching agent for enhanced results.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
If your stains are minor or you’d prefer to whiten your teeth at home, at-home bleaching is the ideal solution for your needs. We create a customized whitening tray using an impression of your teeth; this tray is used to hold a carbide peroxide bleaching agent in such a way that all of your teeth are in contact with it. We’ll provide you with instructions for using your at-home whitening kit, including the amount of time you should use it each day and for how many weeks.
Frequently Asked Questions About Teeth Whitening
What is the best whitener for your teeth?
The best whitener for your teeth depends on your unique needs. If you have significant stains, opt for in-office teeth whitening. At-home teeth whitening kits are a better fit for less severe stains and for maintaining the results of in-office teeth whitening.
Is teeth whitening harmful?
Professional teeth whitening from a dentist is safe and effective, so you don’t have to worry about causing damage to your gums or teeth. When you use DIY whitening kits that aren’t approved by the American Dental Association, you risk damaging your gums and eroding your tooth enamel.
How can I get white teeth in one day?
The only way to get visibly whiter teeth in a single day is with in-office teeth whitening treatments.
Can yellow teeth be whitened?
Yes, yellow teeth can be whitened. In most cases, professional teeth whitening treatments are all that is needed for a whiter smile. There are some circumstances in which a tooth’s discoloration is caused by factors other than enamel staining, in which case we can provide a different solution to improve its appearance.
Can I get my teeth whitened if I have sensitive teeth?
If you have sensitive teeth and you want to whiten them, you should see a dentist rather than attempting to whiten your teeth with an over-the-counter product. We can make adjustments to the process to ensure your comfort.
