What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth naturally begin to yellow with age and certain lifestyle habits can accelerate this process. If you have discolored and stained teeth, teeth whitening is ideal for removing years of unsightly discoloration. Teeth whitening is done safely, easily and quickly in our office, providing you with a bright and beautiful smile that you can feel proud to show off. Professional whitening helps to whiten teeth by several shades in a short period of time.
Why do you need Teeth Whitening?
Whitening is a cosmetic procedure that is completely elective to each patient. If you feel that you will benefit from professional whitening, we can help decide which option is best suited to your needs. Some of the reasons you may be considering whitening include:
- You have discolored and stained teeth from smoking or drinking dark sodas or coffee
- You’re looking for safe, quick results
- You have used at-home products with little success
What makes you a good candidate for Teeth Whitening?
In order to determine if you are a good candidate for teeth whitening, it’s important to come into our office for a consultation. We can help by determining which whitening option is best for you and what to expect out of the procedure. Keep in mind that most whitening products are not designed to whiten dental work like fillings, crowns, veneers and fixed bridges. We will help to determine the level of whitening you should expect when having the procedure done.
What happens during the procedure for Teeth Whitening?
The whitening procedure involves utilizing a whitening gel that is applied to the teeth. A shade of your current tooth color will be taken prior to having whitening done. After the treatment is finished, another shade of your whitened teeth will be taken to show how much your teeth have improved. We will send you home with aftercare instructions on how to maintain your new smile. It is important to follow these instructions so that you can benefit from a brighter, whiter smile for years. Professional whitening delivers more effective results in a shorter period of time.
