You don’t have to settle for a smile you don’t love. If you’re dissatisfied with the color of your teeth, we invite you to schedule a teeth whitening procedure with one of our dentists.
Who Benefits From Teeth Whitening
Restoring the brightness to your smile with professional help from a dentist is one of the safest and most cost-efficient ways to correct faded and yellowed teeth. Teeth whitening appears to be the most effective when yellowing is caused by superficial issues, like stains on enamel from wine and coffee.
Tooth whitening may not be the most effective when yellowing has been caused by decay. In these cases, your dentist may recommend other cosmetic interventions, such as porcelain veneers.
What Happens During a Tooth Whitening Treatment
The first step in a tooth whitening session is to assess the current shade of your teeth on a tooth color chart. This helps us get a good idea of what to expect for your results—as much as three to eight shades lighter in just one hour!
For our in-house whitening, we use special barriers to protect your lips, gumline, and tooth roots while you relax in the dental chair with professional-strength hydrogen peroxide gel on your teeth for up one hour. We also offer at-home whitening kits complete with custom molding of your teeth for optimal fit and comfort.
