Teeth Whitening

One surefire way to perk up your smile is to whiten your teeth.  Depending on the amount of dental work you’ve had, your mouth’s sensitivity and the color of your teeth, we can suggest the appropriate whitening methods:

  • Whitening Toothpastes:  Has mild abrasives and other whitening agents that can remove minor surface stains
  • In Office Bleaching:  Usually done in one visit.  The dentist applies a strong bleaching agent to the teeth while shielding the gums to reduce possible gum irritation.  Sometimes special lights are used to enhance the process.  Natural teeth can be immediately whitened.
  • Home Bleaching:  Typically involving a thin tray that a bleaching gel can be placed into and then applied over the teeth for several days, an hour at a time.

We will advise you about the whitening methods best suited for your mouth.  A brighter, more cheerful smile may be just one office visit away!
