Teeth Whitening Before and After.

Everyone Deserves A Confident Smile

There is no denying the power of a beautiful smile! There is nothing more appealing than a sparkling white smile. Knowing that your smile is white and attractive gives you the confidence you need to feel great when you spend time around others. However, our teeth often become stained, darkened and discolored due to a variety of reasons including the consumption of certain foods & drinks, medications or even genetics. Fortunately, our practice offers professional teeth whitening to help our patients obtain the brilliant white smiles they want and deserve. 

Whitening and brightening your smile in a professional setting is safe and effective. It's also a good way to save money as most of the over-the-counter teeth whitening products including gels, whitening strips and toothpastes fall short on what they promise while costing quite a bit of money. Depending on the whitening method you choose, the final result can be dramatic. For instance, the in-office, professional teeth whitening we offer can result in your teeth becoming three to eight shades lighter in just one office visit.  

Professional Whitening Methods

Teeth Whitening Options.Professional whitening makes use of high-concentration bleaching gels that are not available over the counter.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

The first step to having your teeth professionally whitened involves contacting one of our offices for a whitening appointment. We will examine your teeth to make sure your tooth discoloration is not the result of a dental condition that requires treatment. 
When we whiten your teeth, we use a powerful bleaching gel containing hydrogen peroxide that is not available at your local pharmacy or discount department store. Once we've protected your gums and tooth root surfaces and have your lips and cheeks pulled away from your teeth using a plastic device, we apply the special whitening gel to the surfaces of your teeth. You then simply sit back and relax while the gel works on removing the stains and discoloration from your teeth. After approximately one hour, we will remove the gel to reveal your new, white and bright smile!

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

If you prefer to whiten your teeth in the privacy of your home, we can provide you with a teeth whitening kit. This method does not whiten your teeth as quickly as the in-office whitening procedure as it requires several sessions over a period of a few weeks. In your kit will be two thin and flexible plastic mouth trays we have custom-made just for you from an impression of your teeth. You simply fill the mouth trays with the included whitening gel and then place the trays over your upper and lower teeth, leaving them in place for about one hour each time. 

Caring for Your Newly Whitened Smile

Of course, you want your dazzling white smile to last as long as possible! There are a few things you can do that can help you keep your white smile for several months or even two years or longer. The first thing you should concentrate on is doing a great job of brushing and flossing your teeth. You also should visit our dental office regularly so we can check on your oral health and provide you with professional teeth cleaning.

If you smoke, now is a great time to snuff out that bad habit once and for all as tobacco smoke stains and discolors teeth. It's also a good idea to limit the amount of teeth-staining foods and drinks you consume like blueberries, coffee, tea, red wine and dark soda. We also recommend having a minor whitening touch-up done every so often, either at one of our dentist offices or at home so you can keep your smile looking white and bright.
