Tooth Whitening

Everyone wants a bright, white smile. Teeth whitening services are growing in popularity, and it’s one of the most requested services offered by our practice. Everyone sees the growing consumer market focused on whiter teeth. The reality is that over-the-counter, “too good to be true” solutions typically don’t work.

Unfortunately, your teeth will darken over time. We offer a variety of options to whiten your teeth to combat the changes in the color of your teeth. This discoloration can be caused by factors such as the food and beverages you consume, like coffee, tea and soda. Other known factors for discoloration may include childhood medications or illnesses, tobacco use or improper oral hygiene. Restoring your natural white smile is a priority for our dental whitening team.

We are trained professionals using industry-approved methods. Our goal is to meet the needs of every patient, and every patient’s needs are different.

One of the methods we use to whiten teeth is Opalescence Whitening. This method involves applying a gentle, carbamide peroxide gel in our office and at home using special, custom-made trays. The gel comes in three different flavors: mint, melon or regular. In one visit, we will apply the solution, wait for the allotted time and reveal your brighter, whiter smile!

The Opalescence Whitening system can whiten you teeth at your convenience. Generally, patients will wear the custom-fitted tray with the Opalescence gel while they sleep or for a few hours during the day. Patients will start seeing results after the first night of wear and will see continued results in the next 10-14 days while continuing with the process. The active ingredient, carbamide peroxide, is proven to be safe for teeth and gums while successfully whitening your smile.
