The Power of a Brighter Smile

Having whiter teeth is one of the top aesthetic concerns for our patients. A brighter smile can boost your confidence, making you feel more attractive and outgoing in social and professional settings.

Why Our Patients Choose Teeth Whitening

  • Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development)
  • Normal wear of the outer tooth layer
  • Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.)
  • Yellow, brown stained teeth

What Does At-Home Teeth Whitening Involve?

Whitening systems provided by our dental office usually require two visits. At the first appointment, impressions (molds) will be made of your teeth to fabricate custom, clear, plastic trays.

At your second appointment, you will try on the trays for proper fit, and adjustments will be made if necessary. The trays are worn with a special whitening solution either twice a day or overnight, depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening. It is normal to experience tooth sensitivity during the time you are whitening your teeth, but it will subside shortly after you have stopped bleaching.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it safe to whiten my teeth?

Yes, whitening your teeth is safe when done with the guidance of a dentist. We provide professional-grade products and dive into your medical and oral health history to ensure whitening is suitable for your needs.

How long will my whitening results last?

Unfortunately, teeth whitening isn’t permanent. However, the longevity of your results depends on your lifestyle. Smoking, consuming dark beverages (coffee, tea, red wine), and certain foods can stain your teeth faster and work against your newly whitened teeth. By maintaining good oral hygiene and limiting your intake of stain-causing culprits, you can enjoy your brighter smile for up to a year.

I have some old fillings. Will they also whiten?

Teeth whitening only affects natural tooth enamel. Existing fillings, crowns, or veneers won’t whiten your teeth. To get the most uniform smile, we might recommend replacing your restorations after whitening your teeth to match your new smile.
