Whitening can eliminate discoloration and staining from your teeth. Whether you smoke cigarettes, drink a lot of coffee or are taking certain medications, your teeth might be less than perfect. We offer take-home whitening to our patients for their own convenience. With professional whitening, you’re left with a gorgeous, bright smile that is multiple shades lighter.
WHY WOULD TEETH WHITENING BE NEEDED?
You might be attending a big event and want to have a smile you can feel proud to show off. Likewise, you might be tired of the way that you look and are ready for a complete change. Professional whitening is a better option when compared to store-bought products. In fact, we often have patients come to us after using these store products and not achieving the results they want.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR TEETH WHITENING?
Most patients who want to whiten their teeth can and will benefit from treatment. Keep in mind that whitening only works on natural teeth. It will not have an effect on restorations like veneers, crowns or bridge work that you currently have. In order to lighten these restorations, they will need to be replaced entirely.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE TEETH WHITENING PROCESS?
Take-home whitening involves taking impressions of your teeth and using these to make custom fitted trays. You will be given a whitening gel that is used inside of these trays and worn for a specified amount of time at home. You get to keep the trays and use them for touch-ups in the future with new gel.
