Whitening

Have you been thinking your teeth need a jump start? Have you been thinking about whitening your teeth?  Well, it may be easier than you think.  Whitening is a very simple and safe way to brighten and revive your smile, and it in and of itself may give you a reason to smile! Often the teeth become darkened or dulled due to a variety of reasons including time, age, smoking, use of certain medications, and diet. Time and age are obviously out of our control, but things like smoking and drinking tea, coffee, soda, or wine can contribute to darkening or staining the teeth as well.  Professional whitening offers a solution to the effects these habits can cause to the teeth.

 

How does it work?

We use agents that use either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide as the main active ingredient, but the formulations also contain potassium fluoride, which helps strengthen the enamel, fights cavities, and minimizes sensitivity all at the same time.  We will make you custom made bleaching trays right here in our office by taking one or two impressions of your mouth. We will then provide you with the bleaching agent so you can bleach your teeth on your own time and at your own pace.  You have all the control to determine how white you want to go and you also have better control to minimize sensitivity.  Not only that, 6 months to a year down the line when you want to whiten again, all you need is more of the bleaching agent.  No more impressions or chair time, because you already have your custom tray!

We are making it even easier…

Getting your whiter smile is as easy as coming in for your regular checkups.  As long as you come to all your recommended checkups and cleanings, your whiter smile is on us!  We will make your bleaching tray free of charge and provide the whitening agent every 6 months.  All you have to do is come in for your checkups and cleanings!  It’s our way of saying thank you for helping us help you keep your mouth as healthy as it can be.
