Teeth Whitening

Before and after image of the positive effects of teeth whitening
Whitening the teeth is one of the easiest and most noticeable changes that you can make to improve the appearance of your smile. Whitening, or bleaching, is a non-invasive and simple dental treatment that will alter the color of your tooth enamel to make your smile look whiter, brighter and younger.

For many people, dull or stained teeth are the primary concerns that they have about their smile. In office and take home whitening systems are popular methods for correcting this problem. However, if you have fillings, crowns, and other restorations, you need to be aware that these whitening systems will only work to improve the appearance of the natural tooth enamel, so you won't notice any changes on those restorations. You may need to have those restorations replaced after bleaching your teeth so they match the new and improved color of the rest of your smile.

The Teeth Whitening Process

We have several options available in our office:
•  Zoom! Whitening is an in office whitening procedure that gives the most dramatic and immediate results. This is ideal for those who do not want to or feel they will not be compliant in wearing whitening trays. It is also ideal if you desire immediate results. Most of our patients chose to do Zoom! in office and follow through with take him custom trays to maintain their results or further whiten their teeth.
•  Opalescence Go trays are another excellent option that gives great results while being economical and easy to use. They are prefilled trays that you mold in your mouth.
•  Custom whitening trays are reusable custom fit trays. You place the whitening gel in the trays. Because they are reusable they can be quite economical as the whitening gel refills are inexpensive. Excellent results can usually be achieved but you have to be committed to daily use until you achieve your desired results.

Caring for Your Whitened Teeth

When whitening your teeth, it is completely normal to experience sensitivity. Fortunately, this discomfort should stop once you have finished your bleaching treatment.

It is important to remember to get the most out of your results, you should be sure to avoid foods and beverages that could stain your smile, including: wine, tea, soda, and coffee. Additionally, you will likely need touch-ups in order to maintain your beautiful, white smile.
