Tooth Whitening
Have your teeth become discolored, dingy or stained? Do you not smile as much as you used to? Teeth whitening can get you to smile again. Teeth whitening can be performed to provide you with overall whiter, brighter teeth, or if one tooth is discolored, a more consistent color. There are various teeth or tooth whitening procedures, and your specific needs should be considered when consulting with your dentist. Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, painless way to change the color of your natural tooth enamel and enhance the beauty of your smile.

To get your smile to look its best, you should choose a tooth whitening process that:

Our teeth whitening (bleaching) system can significantly improve the appearance of dull or stained teeth in a single office visit. The procedure uses a combination of a hydrogen peroxide gel and a specially designed light that accelerates the whitening process. The gels are pH balanced, compatible with tooth enamel, and specifically formulated to respond to the blue wavelength of the activation lamp. The light, which is safe for tooth enamel, skin, gums and other soft tissue, is shaped to illuminate and whiten all upper and lower teeth in the smile line at the same time.

The process is gentle. You’ll have whiter, brighter teeth in just an hour. However, teeth whitening is not permanent. Touch ups may be needed every few years, or more often if you smoke, or drink coffee, tea or wine.
