Teeth whitening can be performed to reduce discoloration and staining or simply to provide the patient with whiter, brighter teeth. Custom-made teeth whitening trays are an effective way to brighten your smile up to several shades and could be just what you need to enhance your beautiful smile.
Tooth discoloration can take place from:
- Chemical damage to teeth
- Coffee, tea and wine stains
How is teeth whitening done?
First, we will take impressions to create molds of your teeth. We provide you with a bleaching gel that you put into the custom-made, clear trays. The gel is used each night for about 3-4 hours for a week or two, and at the end of this time, significant whitening will occur. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile.
Why should I have my teeth professionally whitened?
Over the counter teeth whitening treatments are available at your local drug store. However, these products are less effective than a professional tooth whitening service you can receive in our office. Some products can cause harm to your teeth and gums. To be safe, the best method for teeth whitening will be to have your dentist perform the whitening procedure in our practice.
