What is Teeth Whitening?
Whitening is a wonderful way to eliminate years worth of stains and discoloration from your teeth. When your teeth are dull, yellowed and stained, you may find that you simply don’t like the way that you look. Professional whitening is safe, effective and can lift your teeth by multiple shades. We offer in-office and take-home whitening options to fit your own unique needs.
Why is Teeth Whitening needed?
You might be planning a big event, like a wedding, or you are just tired of not feeling confident in the way that you look. Your teeth might appear dulled, yellowed and stained from years of bad habits and other factors. Some reasons why your teeth would be yellow or dull include:
- You smoke or chew tobacco
- You drink coffee, cola or tea
- You drink dark wines and fruit juices
- You eat a lot of chocolate, berries and other staining foods
- You take certain medications
- You don’t brush or floss properly
- You’re simply getting older
Who is a candidate for Teeth Whitening?
Most patients who want to professionally whiten their teeth can easily sit to have the work done. In order for whitening to work effectively, it needs to be done on natural teeth. Even the very best whitening will not work on restorations like veneers, crowns or fillings. Your teeth should be otherwise healthy before undergoing whitening.
What happens during the Teeth Whitening process?
The teeth whitening process is done easily and quickly in our office. For in-office whitening, we apply a whitening gel to your teeth and use a bright light to accelerate all results. After about an hour, your teeth will be multiple shades brighter and whiter than when you came into the office. Our take-home whitening involves making whitening trays for you from impressions. We then supply you with whitening gel that is used in conjunction with the new trays. You’ll be instructed on how often to wear these trays at home.
