TEETH WHITENING

Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, there are a number of ways to whiten teeth.  The most popular method is using a home tooth whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically.  Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc.  Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth.

 

Tooth whitening is not permanent.  A touch-up maybe needed every several years, and more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea, or wine.

 

Why whiten?

  • Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development).

  • Normal wear of outer tooth layer.

  • Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).

  • Yellow, brown stained teeth.

 

Varieties

  • In-Office Whitening: Our in-office teeth whitening treatments whiten your teeth quickly with prescription-strength hydrogen peroxide. In-office whitening typically requires one to three appointments, depending on the amount of tooth staining. You may schedule in-office whitening appointments at your discretion, whenever you feel your teeth could use a brightening.

  • Home Whitening with Bleaching Trays: Our team is able to take an impression of your mouth and provide you with custom-fitted bleaching trays, so that you can whiten between dental treatments.
