Teeth tend to change color over time due to dark-colored beverages, worn enamel, and sometimes even simple genetics. Even if you brush and floss every day, that’s not always enough to stop discoloration, and there are many stains that you won’t be able to remove on your own because they’re below the surface of your enamel.

In a short amount of time, your teeth will have transformed so brilliantly that you won’t be able to wait to show them off!

Teeth whitening is recommended for people with stained or discolored teeth. You will need to schedule a consultation with us first to determine whether or not you’re a good candidate for the procedure. We’ll need to make sure your gums are healthy and free of periodontal disease before we move forward. The initial visit is also a good opportunity for us to go over the advantages of in-office and take-home whitening so that you can choose the method that’s best for you.
Professional teeth whitening involves a high-grade bleaching gel that can penetrate your enamel in order to break up stain-causing molecules. The treatment comes in two forms: a take-home whitening kit or an entirely in-office procedure. Both are highly effective and reliable when it comes to creating dazzling smiles. The main difference is how long it takes to see results.
With take-home whitening, you’ll be given a kit with customized trays and professional bleaching gel. You will fill the trays with the gel and wear them for a set amount of time every day. This whitening method usually takes at least two weeks to achieve the desired results, with the tradeoff being that it can be done entirely in the comfort of your own home.
During an in-office whitening procedure, one of our talented dental team members will apply the bleaching gel directly to your teeth. The procedure can be completed in just an hour, and the difference will be apparent right away.
Even after a whitening procedure, your teeth can still become discolored again in the future. Luckily, there are several ways you can make your brighter smile last longer:
