Teeth Whitening

Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “bleaching” procedure.

What are the details of teeth whitening?

It’s safe, quick, and less expensive than veneers or crowns. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth. You can lighten your upper and lower teeth and improve your smile and appearance while talking.

See down below for our Whitening For Life Whitening Program.

In only a day or two your soft custom bleach trays will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special bleaching gel that you put into the clear trays. With only a few hours of wear per day, our special bleaching agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. It does NOT weaken your enamel. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile.

Dental bleaching can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching 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 bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a solid try.

Our Whitening For Life Program is setup to get you going and keep you whiten and maintained over the long term.You start with 4 tubes of bleaching gel. Studes show that after 12 months, the whitening effects decreases by about 40%!! That is a lot!  So, at each 6 month check up and cleaning, you will received an additional 2 tubes to refresh and sharpen up the color of your teeth, the best part is that those two tubes of gel will be FREE! The cost of the program is $149. There are those out there that have very stubborn teeth, and we have specialized gel for teeth like yours, and cost is a bit more at $199. Unfortunately, those with significant Tetracycline or Fluorosis stains will not benefit from this program.

How is teeth whitening done?

Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening

  • Corrects brown, yellow and spotted tooth staining
  • Works on people of any age
  • Is a near-permanent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and brings a smile alive

An impression is taken to make a specialized clear tray that is soft to hold the bleach against the teeth. The material is used each day or nigh for about 30 minutes at a time for 10-14 days. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology allows us improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or porcelain veneers may be more appropriate.

Considerations for Teeth Whitening

Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available for purchase at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products have a low concentration of dental bleach, they can only be successfully used in those who have minimal whitening needs. If you want much better results, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends.
