Have you noticed that people at the office, your neighbors, and even some of your family members have amazingly white teeth? Do you want a set of pearly whites that rivals those of a Hollywood star? You deserve to express your inner beauty to the world with confidence, and we’d love to help you!
Professional-grade teeth whitening, an effective way to brighten smiles, takes less than an hour with in-office treatment. The simple procedure requires no anesthesia, and it’s perfectly safe. After preparing your mouth, we will apply a gel to your teeth and activate the teeth whitening process with a special light. You’ll leave our office with a smile that’s up to 10 shades whiter.
You may prefer to whiten at home, and we can help with that, too. We’ll create custom trays to make home whitening comfortable. Each night for a week or two you’ll need to apply our professional-grade whitening gel to the trays, and then wear them at night. Within just a few days, you’ll notice a difference, and by the time treatment is complete, you’ll smile with confidence. Take-home trays can also touch up and maintain in-office teeth whitening.
Most patients will experience dramatic results with either teeth whitening method, though not all discolorations can be lightened with the treatment. Whitening treatments are most successful in removing yellow, brown, or orange tinges incurred from aging, coffee, tea, or smoking. However, dark gray tones from fluorosis, smoking, or tetracycline use may not whiten as dramatically; artificial materials such as silicants or porcelains do not whiten at all. Patients with sensitive teeth, periodontal disease, or worn enamel typically do not respond well to teeth whitening. For these cases, cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers may provide the best solution for a movie-star smile.
