Your appearance can affect you socially, emotionally, and even professionally. People who smile with confidence are viewed as warm, inviting, and beautiful, among other positive attributes. Now, with our professional whitening systems, we can help you achieve the pearly whites of magazine models and movie stars.
Chemicals in foods, beverages, and tobacco can all change the color of your teeth, as can the effects of aging. Medications such as tetracycline, excessive fluoride, and previous dental work may also cause unsightly stains on your enamel. Genetics can affect the color of your teeth as well. While we think of tooth enamel as white, the natural, unstained shade of your teeth can range from pearly white to bluish gray to pale yellow. Even if you brush and floss daily, stains can tarnish your beautiful smile and steal the confident image you want to convey.
You don’t have to live with discolored teeth! After a thorough examination, we can recommend the best option for whitening your smile.
In-office whitening is one of the safest and quickest ways to whiten your teeth. During this process, we will place a protective rubber dam around your gums and apply a solution of 15 to 35% carbamide peroxide, a chemical found in most whitening products, to your teeth. Depending on the whitening method, your dentist may also use a laser or special lamp to speed up the bleaching process. In-office whitening can give you dazzlingly white teeth in about an hour!
We can also create clear, customized whitening trays for you to whiten at home. Our professional-grade at-home whitening solution usually contains 10% carbamide peroxide. Simply pour the solution into your custom mouth trays and wear them for an hour a day. You will notice whiter teeth almost immediately; however, the most dramatic results will appear after one to two weeks of daily us.
