Teeth whitening, or bleaching, is a popular procedure to make your teeth whiter and brightens your smile.
Bleaching can be used to whiten stained and discolored teeth, or simply to enhance your smile. Either way, teeth whitening is a safe and relatively painless procedure for most patients. Whitening comes in strips, trays, or in-office procedures. We offer a wide variety of options for you at our practice.
In-office bleaching procedures are ideal if you want immediate results. The whole process takes about an hour, taking little time out of busy lives. A protective gel is applied to your gums to protect the soft tissue. Then a special ion-activated gel is inserted into a tray and applied to your teeth. Following the procedure, the patient receives a take-home gel and instructions to keep their smile bright. The result is dramatically whiter teeth that, with proper maintenance, will last for years.
Tray whitening is a less-expensive and convenient at-home whitening treatment. The results are more gradual and may not achieve the same results of in-office treatment, but are still an excellent option. Maximum whitening results and a dazzling smile are achieved at the end of the set treatment period. An occasional treatment can be used to maintain the new smile.
Whitening strips can be available at the local store or at dental practices. The dentist will have the best recommendations for your needs.
