Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel, and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.

Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, there are several ways to whiten teeth. The most popular method is using an at-home teeth whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically. Since teeth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth.

Teeth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up may be needed once a year, and more often if you smoke and/or drink coffee, tea or wine.

Reasons for Teeth Whitening
•  Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development)
•  Normal wear of outer tooth layer
•  Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.)
•  Yellow, brown stained teeth

What Does At-Home Teeth Whitening Involve?
Whitening systems provided by our dental office usually require two visits. At the first appointment, impressions (molds) will be made of your teeth to fabricate custom, clear, plastic trays.

At your second appointment, you will try on the trays for proper fit, and adjustments will be made if necessary. The trays are worn with special whitening solution either twice a day or overnight, depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening.

You will receive care instructions for your teeth and trays, and be encouraged to visit our office regularly to help maintain a beautiful, healthy, white smile.
