What is Tooth Whitening?

Everyone loves a bright white smile. There are a variety of products and procedures available to help you get the smile you have always wanted. We can discuss with you the options that can best meet your needs. Research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth with carbamide peroxide under the supervision of a dentist is safe for gums and teeth.
    • • In-office whitening- This usually requires one office visit. A protective gel will be used to cover your gums. Oxygen bubbles into the natural pores of your teeth  that have been clogged with coffee, tea, smoking, wine, or other staining foods bringing back their original luster. These whiteners also can lighten your natural tooth enamel. Results may vary according to the intensity of the discolorations. Sensitivity may occur afterwards, but it goes away quickly.
  • • At-Home Bleaching- Peroxide-containing whiteners in a gel form are placed in custom trays that hold the whitener against the tooth. These whiteners come in various strengths and can be worn over several days until the desired shade is reached.
