Has your smile lost some of its luster? If so, our dentists can recommend a fast and affordable teeth whitening solution to restore your smile to its former glory.
When you come to us for cosmetic teeth whitening, you know you will be getting the expertise of a highly qualified dentist who will carefully monitor each step of the process to ensure the best possible results. The products we use are highly concentrated to provide dramatic results that you will see immediately.
Our teeth bleaching products are designed to remove stains caused by certain foods and beverages and smoking. There are situations where our whitening services may not be appropriate. For example, the whitening procedure will not remove stains caused by tetracycline or problems deep within the tooth structure. The whitening procedure is also not effective in changing the color of dental restorations, such as fillings, crowns, and veneers. During your initial consultation, our dentist will examine your teeth to determine if the procedure would be effective for your tooth discoloration. If so, we will work with you to find the whitening system that will provide the best possible results.
The teeth whitening process is simple and painless. Although the exact procedure can vary based on the system used, the basic process is as follows:

We have a number of patients who want a whiter smile, but want the convenience of performing the treatment at home on their schedule. In addition to our in-office services, we also offer at-home teeth whitening kits prepared by our dentist. If you and your dentist decide that at-home treatment is right for you, we will make an impression of your teeth to create your custom whitening trays and help you select the right professional-grade whitening gel. We will provide you with instructions to ensure that you know how to use the system safely and correctly. Most patients wear the trays for an hour a day and lighten their teeth by six shades within a couple of weeks.
We see patients every day who have tried various over-the-counter teeth whitening options with little success. At best, over-the-counter gels, strips, trays, rinses, and toothpastes may provide modest improvement by removing some of the surface stains. This may be okay if you want a quick touch-up before a big event and don’t have time to see a dentist. However, over-the-counter treatments lack the strength and consistency of professional products, which can lead to uneven results or even gum irritation. Our professional whitening services ensure reliable results and eliminate the risk of patient error.
The cost of our teeth whitening services is based on several factors, including the type of system used, the number of treatments required, and the need for any follow-up treatments or repairs to even out the color. To get an accurate estimate of your teeth bleaching cost, we recommend that you contact our office to schedule a consultation.
Depending on the patient, the results of teeth whitening can last anywhere from two to 10 years. The better you care for your teeth, the longer the results will last. Smoking and consuming foods and drinks that can stain can cause the results of your treatment to fade rapidly. To extend the life of your treatment, we recommend that you limit your consumption of the following foods or at least brush or rinse your teeth after consuming them:
Of course, you should still see a dentist every six months for professional dental cleanings.
