What is Teeth Whitening?
Over time and as the result of certain lifestyle habits, teeth begin to yellow and dull. This can cause you to feel self-conscious about your appearance and your smile. In order to lift and dissolve stains and achieve optimal results, professional whitening is necessary. We offer teeth whitening services to help you to feel confident about the look of your smile.
Why is Teeth Whitening needed?
You might be looking to whiten your smile before other procedures or when having restorations placed, ensuring that the restorations and natural teeth are bright and white. Additionally, you might be interested in having whitening done because you have an upcoming wedding or special event. Other patients simply want to whiten their smile because they’re tired of feeling self-conscious about the way that they look. Professional whitening can reverse years of staining and discoloration from your natural teeth.
Who is a good candidate for Teeth Whitening?
Whitening works best on natural teeth, and often won’t lighten restorations like fillings, crowns, or bridge work. If you have severe sensitivity problems, we may recommend other treatment options than whitening. However, most patients who want whitening done can safely come in for treatment. Whitening results can last for months or even several years before you may want to consider re-treatment.
What happens during the Teeth Whitening process?
We offer at-home whitening options that allow you to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own bedroom or bathroom. We take impressions and use these to create custom-fitted trays. We then provide you with a whitening gel that is used in conjunction with these trays at home. You can keep the trays after treatment, and will come in for more whitening gel as needed. We additionally offer in-office whitening options for those wanting a quick and effective way to eliminate stains and deep discoloration. You will find that your results are much more significant than what you might get when using whitening products that you can purchase from a local drugstore.
