A bright, white smile can help create a youthful appearance.
We offer a couple whitening options to help you achieve the brightest smile possible. We recommend that you consult with your dentist to determine which option is best for you. Your dentist may need to perform an exam to determine if your teeth are healthy enough for whitening.
If you are a candidate for whitening, your dentist may suggest a procedure that can be done in his or her office. This procedure is called chairside or in-office whitening, and may be completed in as little as one visit. During an in-office whitening procedure, the dentist will apply either a protective gel to your gums or a rubber shield to protect the oral soft tissues. A whitening agent is then applied to your teeth, and a special light may be used to enhance the action of the agent.
Custom Whitening Trays
Custom take-home whitening products typically come in a gel which is dispensed into a tray or mouthguard. These trays can be made by your dentist to fit your teeth precisely. Usage may vary depending on the product. Some products are used twice a day for approximately 2 weeks, and others are intended for overnight use for 1-2 weeks.
