Teeth whitening services are some of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures done in dental offices today.  A whiter, brighter smile is not only seen as more attractive, but can also open many doors for you. Find out all of the answers to your questions here:

What Is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening, also known as bleaching, is a noninvasive dental treatment used to light in the shade of your tooth enamel.

How Does It Work?

When you visit your dentist for whitening services, a mold of your teeth will be made for custom bleach trays.  From there, you will be able to take your mold home and whiten your teeth on your own schedule with dentist-provided products!

If the at home route doesn’t sound like the best option for you, in office treatments are also available. We use a powerful laser-activated whitening gel that quickly and safely whitens your teeth.

Is It Safe?

Whitening treatments are 100% safe as long as directions are followed! During treatment, some people experience discomfort due sensitivity.  If this problem arises, let your dentist now as soon as possible.

Is This A 1 time Procedure?

This depends on the severity of the stains on your teeth, and  how many shades lighter your desired result is. Very rarely is it a 1 time deal.  In order to maintain a bright smile over time, this procedure will need to be repeated.
