Tooth Whitening

Nothing improves your appearance more than a bright, white smile! Having whiter teeth can give you a younger, fresher look.

Tooth whitening can help remove stains and discolorations that can be caused by the food and beverages you consume (like coffee, tea, soda and red wine), tobacco, childhood medications, improper oral hygiene, or even just the aging process. Restoring your natural white smile is a priority for our dental whitening team, and we can provide a variety of options for whitening your smile.

One of the methods used by our practice is a gentle hydrogen-peroxide gel-activated solution. Our process will whiten your entire smile in one visit. We can also make a custom-made tray for your teeth that you will use with the gel-activated solution to help you keep your smile bright and white from home. While some tooth whitening systems cause sensitivity, our techniques have fewer of these side effects.

During your office visit, we will take an impression of your teeth in order to make you a custom-fitted tooth tray that looks similar to a mouth guard. We will also give you the tooth whitening gel that you will use in the tooth tray. Many people prefer to wear their trays overnight, and the whitening effect can be seen, for most people, in one week. Teeth that are discolored because of tetracycline are not good candidates for the whitening procedure. Ask us about how your smile can be younger-looking and brighter. We are happy to explain the process and provide you a whitening evaluation.
