Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a quick, simple way to enhance the beauty of your smile.  A specially formulated gel is used to remove surface stain and brighten your natural tooth structure.

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 teeth whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically.  Since teeth 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.

Reasons for teeth whitening:

  • Fluorosis 
  • Normal wear of outer tooth layer.
  • Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).
  • Yellow, brown stained teeth due to the natural aging process.

Teeth whitening can be done either in-office, at home or a combination of both,  depending on the complexity of the case.  The most popular method is to wear custom made whitening trays at home.  

You will receive care instructions for your teeth and trays, and be encouraged to visit your dentist regularly to help maintain a beautiful, healthy, white smile.
