You deserve bright, white teeth in your smile. Our teeth whitening treatments will help you achieve just that—so you can feel confident in your tooth coloring.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Millions of people complain of dulled or yellowed teeth that take away from their smiles. Discolored teeth can be associated with poor hygiene, but they are also associated with old age, and frailty of the teeth that can be caused by a few different things. Teeth whitening can remove years of dingy stains from your teeth.
Professional teeth whitening treatments make it easier to achieve a bright smile, sometimes in just one treatment. We offer treatments in a few different forms:
- Customized system: We offer in-office whitening that removes years of stain within an hour or less. We also can make trays that fit your teeth like a comfortable glove for whitening at home. Together we’ll find the right system for your situation and the best results, sometimes even combining the two methods for maximum short and long-term benefits.
- Controlled gel formulas: We use the highest quality whitening formulas available for safety and consistency: professional strength with careful quality control from known sources. Beware of temperature-sensitive gels stored in uncontrolled environments or made in an unknown setting.
You may experience temporary sensitivity in your teeth while whitening. We have specific strategies for you to use and will customize the product and method to help you have a comfortable and safe whitening experience.
Buying a box of whitening strips every few months adds up. A session with us in the office can provide an instant effect that may take days and multiple boxes of strips to obtain. Alternatively, you’ll have a system that should fit for years if you leave with custom trays. A simple refill syringe of gel picked up occasionally from our office allows you to keep your smile fresh for years to come.
What are the benefits of teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening brightens your smile which can raise confidence, help you appear healthier and happier and younger—even more energetic. This can go a long way in improving your overall appearance and can sometimes be achieved in just one treatment.
How is teeth whitening performed?
Teeth whitening procedures start with covering up vulnerable areas like the lips and gums to prevent exposure. Then apply a hydrogen peroxide gel directly to the teeth and activate it so that it floods the teeth with oxygen ions. The ions break down the staining to whiten the teeth.
How do I whiten my teeth at home?
If you’re looking for a teeth whitening remedy without coming to the dentist, there are a few simple things you can try at home like brushing with baking powder, use hydrogen peroxide to brush or rinse with on an occasional basis (cut the peroxide in half so you are using a 1.5% solution and not a 3% solution, which is common for over-the-counter), use apple cider vinegar as a brushing or rinsing agent, eat more fruits and vegetables they are good for your body and your teeth, limit foods that stain your teeth such as soda, coffee and wine, limit your sugar intake and always remember to brush and floss twice a day—its still a powerful tool.
