What is Teeth Whitening?
Whether you’re a smoker, coffee drinker or are just getting older, your teeth may not be as white as you’d like. They may appear stained, discolored and even yellow whenever you smile. Whitening is a quick and easy way to ensure that these stains and deep discoloration are no longer an issue for you. We offer a variety of whitening options to meet your needs and provide you with the results you want.
Why is Teeth Whitening needed?
Many patients choose to whiten their teeth professionally before a big event. You might be getting married or going to a class reunion and want to look your absolute best. Others want to whiten their existing smile before restorations are placed, like a crown or bridge. This allows the new restoration to match better so that it doesn’t look out of place.
Who is a candidate for Teeth Whitening?
Whitening is suitable for most adult patients with otherwise healthy teeth. If you’re looking to whiten veneers, crowns, bridge work or other restorations, keep in mind that whitening will not get them any lighter than they originally were. However, most patients who want whitening can easily have it done and will benefit from the quick, dramatic results they’ll achieve.
What happens during the Teeth Whitening process?
First, you will come into the office for a consultation. We will examine your teeth to determine if whitening is right for you. We then offer you several different options when it comes to expert whitening. Our in-office whitening delivers quick results while you have the treatment done in one of our rooms. We even offer take-home whitening in the form of custom-fitted trays and professional-quality whitening gel. The gel is placed into the trays and the trays are worn for several hours or overnight to deliver high-end drastic results in just a few short days. Once whitened, you can easily maintain your results with one of our whitening maintenance options.
If you think you might need whitening, call our office today and we can get you in for a convenient appointment.
