Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “whitening” procedure.
Whitening can be used to correct many tooth discolorations. These discolorations may have been caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful, “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice. But because of the low cost of whitening treatments, it is nearly always worth a solid try.
- Corrects brown, yellow and mottled tooth staining
- Works on people of all ages, over 14 years old
- Is a near permanent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and bringing a smile alive.
How it is done:
Whitening can be performed either in our office with ZOOM! Whitening or at home using custom fitted trays. For at home whitening an impression is taken to make a specialized “mouthguard” or “tray” to hold the bleaching material against the teeth. The material is used 15 minutes daily for a week or two, after which significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, whitening technology offers improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or veneers may be more appropriate.
Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can harm the gums and teeth, its better to use products recommended by your dentist.
