Teeth-Whitening

Convenient, Professional Teeth-Whitening


Sometimes, your teeth can become stained and lose their luster for reasons beyond your control. For example, even if you keep your smile healthy with good hygiene and routine family dental care, your tooth enamel might start to show signs of use as food and beverage molecules cling to it. Cosmetic teeth-whitening is designed to erase pesky stains and discoloration on your teeth’s surfaces without the need for more involved treatment. We can design your teeth-whitening procedure to be performed in our office, from the comfort of home, or a combination of both, depending on your specific needs and preferences.

Why Teeth-Whitening Seems Easy

Unlike most other dental health treatments, teeth-whitening is a topical treatment that’s applied to your teeth’s surface. It’s goal is to break up and erase the staining deposits on your enamel, and doing so can seem easy. That’s one reason why people often choose over-the-counter (OTC) products, believing it to be a simple process that doesn’t require professional treatment. However, the only reason professional teeth-whitening seems easy is because the solution is designed specifically for maximum results and minimal effect on your tooth structure. OTC products are significantly less potent, and more often than not, they don’t achieve the results you’re looking for.

How Professional Teeth-Whitening Works

The good news is that professional teeth-whitening is just as convenient as any product that you could buy at a store and take home. For example, we offer a choice of treatment options, such as:

  • In-office teeth-whitening – At our office, we can gently apply the teeth-whitening solution to your teeth surfaces, then activate the gel using a special light that stimulates it into rapidly removing the stains on your teeth. The gel also brightens your tooth structure underneath to restore your smile’s vibrant, youthful appearance, and in-office treatment can often be accomplished in just a single visit.
  • Take-home teeth-whitening – If you prefer to brighten your teeth at home, we can custom-design a take-home kit that allows you to do so comfortably. The kit includes a set of trays that fit comfortably over your teeth and a supply of professional-strength bleaching gel. The trays allow you to apply the gel to your teeth for a couple of hours each day, and in about 10 days, your teeth will be significantly brighter and stain-free.
