Tooth enamel is not naturally white. Plus, everyday activities, such as coffee and red wine consumption, can cause the enamel to become discolored over time. It is no surprise, then, that many individuals are dissatisfied due to the yellow or dull appearance of their teeth. Are you one of those people? If you are, our team is ready to help. Our professional whitening services may be able to drastically brighten your teeth in a very short period of time.
You may be a good candidate for teeth whitening if you are unhappy with the shade of your teeth. Whitening is safe and effective for most people. However, teeth whitening may not be appropriate for you at this time if you have veneers, crowns, or other types of restorations on your front teeth. These restorations do not respond to the bleaching agents used in teeth whitening. You may need to get them replaced in order to make sure that your smile retains even coloration.
We offer two types of professional teeth whitening:
Our in-office whitening procedure takes about one hour. You will simply relax in the treatment chair while we apply a powerful bleaching agent to your teeth. After the agent sits on your teeth for a while, we will thoroughly rinse it off, and you will be able to admire your freshly whitened smile. We recommend that patients get their teeth cleaned just prior to an in-office whitening procedure for optimum results.
Our take-home whitening kits let you achieve your whitening goals in the comfort of your own home. Simply follow the kit’s instructions, and you should see significant results within a week or two. Take-home whitening is often best for people with sensitive teeth or those who may find it uncomfortable to sit through an in-office whitening session.
Benefits of teeth whitening include:
The cost of your teeth whitening service will depend on whether you opt for in-office or take-home whitening, as well as other factors. Our team will candidly discuss pricing with you before you decide to commit to getting your teeth whitened. Many patients are happy to invest in professional teeth whitening because it is one of the most affordable cosmetic dentistry treatments, and it can deliver stunning results.
