Discoloration and staining are caused by a wide variety of factors, and often leave patients feeling dissatisfied with the appearance of their smiles. If you suffer from a lackluster smile from yellowing or localized stains, our professional teeth whitening can safely and comfortably provide you with a brighter, whiter smile.

About Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening relies on the use of peroxide-based bleaching gel to lift stains from your enamel – your outermost tooth layer – and from deeper layers, called dentin. We offer bleaching gel because it can remove stains while protecting your teeth against damage and sensitivity. Once applied to your teeth, oxygen molecules within the bleaching gel will break down the stains in your teeth.

You may visit us in-office for a treatment lasting one to two hours, or you may select take-home bleaching trays, which will allow you to whiten your teeth on your own over the course of approximately two weeks.

What are the Benefits of Teeth Whitening?

Attempting to brush and floss discoloration away or using over-the-counter products that only work on the outer layer of your teeth can become frustrating. Benefits of professional whitening include:

  • A more youthful appearance
  • Improved confidence
  • A brighter, whiter, smile that will display greater shade consistency

Do I Qualify for Teeth Whitening?

Your candidacy rests primarily on your desire for a whiter smile, and whether you visit us with a smile full of your natural teeth. If your smile consists of dental crowns or a dental bridge, for example, we will suggest an alternative cosmetic solution as prosthetics will not react to teeth whitening.
