Teeth Whitening

You deserve bright, white teeth in your smile. Our teeth whitening treatments will help you achieve just that—so you can feel confident in your tooth coloring.

Professional Teeth Whitening

Many individuals often complain about having dull or yellowed teeth that take away from their smiles. Discolored teeth may indicate poor hygiene, old age, or weakened teeth caused by various factors.

Fortunately, professional teeth whitening treatments can help people achieve a brighter smile in just one treatment. The treatment involves applying a hydrogen peroxide gel to the teeth and activating the gel to release oxygen ions. These oxygen ions penetrate the teeth and break down interior and exterior staining, resulting in a brighter appearance. This bleaching process is highly effective and extremely safe, with minimal to no discomfort.

  • How is professional teeth whitening performed?

    Our office currently offers two different types of professional whitening services: in-office and custom-made trays.

    • In-office. These procedures start by covering up vulnerable areas inside the mouth, including the lips and gums, to prevent exposure from the peroxide. Then, we apply a high-concentrate hydrogen peroxide gel directly to the teeth and activate it. You will rest comfortably for a short time until the gel does its work. Then we remove the coverings and rinse the gel away.
    • Custom-made trays. We will take a custom mold of your teeth to make clear trays that you take home, along with a whitening gel. These trays will help minimize the risk of whitening gel affecting your gums or mouth and you can whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home. All you have to do is place the whitening gel inside the trays and place the trays in your mouth.
  • How long does teeth whitening last?

    This largely depends on your individual lifestyle – the effects can last as little as 6 months or as long as 2 – 3 years. Practicing excellent oral hygiene and avoiding things that stain your teeth, such as smoking and drinking coffee, can prolong how long the effects will be visible.

  • Are whitening strips bad for your teeth?

    If overused, whitening strips can cause harm to your teeth. It’s important to avoid having the strips make contact with your gums as the whitening chemicals can cause serious damage to the soft tissue. Additionally, frequently using whitening strips can cause tooth sensitivity and weaken the tooth enamel.
