Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is faster, more effective, and longer lasting that treatments you find over the counter. As we age, our teeth darken over time. We can brighten your teeth several shades, but maintaining good oral hygiene and steering away from certain foods and beverages will help keep any future whitening services to a minimum. We may also prescribe some medication for you to use at home that helps the whitening process.

 

Procedure:

  1. Thorough cleansing and polishing of teeth

  2. Impression taken for bleaching trays

  3. Dispensing of take home bleaching gel

  4. At home, bleaching gel is applied to the bleaching tray and left on for 1-2 hours

  5. Teeth and gums are then rinsed and tray removed

Things to avoid:

  • Tobacco products
  • Coffee and tea
  • Red wine
  • Food coloring

  • Any bright-colored drinks
