A beautiful smile is closer than you think! Genetics play a large part in the natural color of teeth, but smoking, or drinking coffee, tea, and red wine can contribute to staining and discoloration. Whitening your teeth is a safe and simple procedure that can be completed in relatively short period of time. Our Practice offers two types of bleaching:
- Regular: For patients who just want their smile to be a little brighter.
- Deep Bleaching: For those who have very dark teeth or want to achieve the whitest possible result.
The first step in the whitening process is to take full impressions of your upper and lower teeth. These impressions will be made into custom bleaching trays, which will fit snugly onto your teeth.
The second step is to place the bleaching solution in the trays and wear them for 1 hour per day. Within 2-3 weeks, you will see a significant improvement in the color of your teeth. Your smile will look brighter and younger.
Deep bleaching involves a one hour in-office whitening treatment in addition to your at-home bleaching.
Bleaching only works on natural teeth and may not be effective in all cases. We will inform you as to the potential whitening for your specific situation. Any existing crowns, bridges or white fillings will not change color with bleaching.
