Having your teeth whitened is one of the easiest and safest ways to take years off your smile! Unsightly stains from food, beverages or tobacco use can be reduced or eliminated through our whitening process. Prior to whitening, you will receive a thorough exam to ensure that whitening alone will provide you with the results you're looking for. Certain dental conditions can not be reversed by whitening alone. Whitening will also not change the initial shade of tooth colored fillings, crowns or the dark gray color from some large silver fillings. Fortunately, with today's dental technology we can address these other issues to give you back the smile you deserve.
For fast and efficient whitening, we suggest supervised treatments by a dental professional. This option contains whitening agents in higher concentrations and produces quicker results than over-the-counter options. In fact, your teeth may be visibly whiter in just one visit !
The procedure consists of several short appointments. Initially, we take impressions to make master laboratory models of your teeth. These are used to produce thin, custom made whitening trays that will fit comfortably over your teeth. At the second appointment, we will verify that the whitening trays fit properly and are comfortable. We will record the starting shade of your teeth and review your personalized instructions to safely and effectively brighten your smile. To whiten teeth, most individuals will need to use the whitening system for only 3 minutes per day for two or three weeks. We also schedule, at no extra charge, a follow up appointment to monitor your progress and answer any questions you may have.
