Teeth Whitening

We've said it before: Teeth are important to your self esteem. If your teeth look good, you smile more. If you smile more, you feel better about yourself. Who doesn't want to feel better about themselves?

The main problem with fixing your smile is the cost involved in making major restorations to your teeth. Whitening is a great alternative to expensive treatments like braces or veneers. Whitening your teeth provides a major change to the look of your smile for much less than restorative options.

There are two main versions of teeth whitening:

Teeth Whitening in Office

Have an active lifestyle? Looking for immediate results? In office teeth whitening is ideal for you. This takes less time than a regimen of at home treatments. In office teeth whitening is a procedure that usually takes about an hour. It starts with the application of a protective gel to the gums and surrounding soft tissue. A second gel activated by a special light is applied to the teeth surfaces. We use an intense light to activate the second gel and whiten your teeth. Walk out of the office with a whiter smile.

Teeth Whitening at Home

Less expensive than in office treatments, at home trays are a series of treatments you apply at home. First we need to make a mold of your teeth in the office. Then we make trays based on this mold that you will pick up from the office. We will instruct you on the proper use of the trays and bleaching gel. This gel is a much lower strength than the dentist uses and is why it costs less and takes longer.

At home, fill the trays with a bleaching gel, and wear for about an hour at a time, once or twice a day. It depends upon the time you have available. Using the bleach trays will gradually whiten your teeth overh over several days or weeks ending in whiter teeth. Bleaching may cause your teeth to become more sensitive.
