Tooth Whitening

Take advantage of our state-of-the-art teeth whitening service and look your best!!!

Our in-office teeth whitening technique is the safest, most effective way to remove stains and discoloration from your teeth and bring back the healthy, white smile you want!

How does Teeth Whitening work?

Teeth whitening lightens discolorations on teeth, bringing back that healthy white smile that you want!

A gel is placed in a thin bleaching tray that fits over your teeth. As hydrogen peroxide, the active ingredient in the gel is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin and bleaches the colored substances. Only the tooth color is made lighter, while the structure of the tooth is unchanged.

How long does Teeth Whitening take?

The process takes approximately one hour, and results are usually seen at the first appointment.

Are there any side effects?

Some people experience temporary side effects after treatment. These include increased tooth sensitivity to cold and small white patches at the gum line. These normally disappear within 1-3 days after treatment.

What causes teeth to darken?

Many factors work to destroy the naturally white smile you’re born with. Tobacco, certain foods we eat, and certain drinks actually stain our teeth.

Hot coffee and tea are especially hazardous to your smile because they change the temperature of your teeth. This temperature change causes the teeth to expand and contract allowing stains to penetrate the teeth. Just cutting down on coffee and tea alone can go a long way towards maintaining a great smile.

Foods that are slightly acidic are also dangerous to your white smile. These foods open up the pores of the tooth enamel, allowing stains to more easily move into the tooth.

How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?

Typically, teeth whitening can last 10 years depending on whether or not you smoke, consume acid containing foods, or consume staining foods like red wines and coffee. Even though whitening can fade, it still delays the eventual darkening that happens to us all.
