Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “bleaching” procedure.
What are the details of teeth whitening?
It’s safe, quick, and effective. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth and we would be happy to discuss the options we recommend.
An effective way of achieving a whiter smile is to have custom bleaching trays fabricated in our office. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear trays. With only 30-60 minutes of wear per day, our special bleaching agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile.
Dental bleaching can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of bleaching it may be a good first line treatment option.
How is teeth whitening done?
Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening
- Corrects brown, yellow and spotted tooth staining
- Works on people of any age
- Is a near-permanent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and brings a smile alive
An impression is taken to make a specialized “mouthguard” or “tray” to hold the bleach against the teeth. The bleach gel is added to the tray and is to be worn for 30-60 minutes but can vary based on the strength of bleach prescribed. A full at home whitening treatment consists of 10-14 days of consistent wear. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology allows us to promise improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or porcelain veneers may be more appropriate depending on the desired outcome.
