Teeth whitening is used to remove unwanted discoloration and stains from teeth. A beautiful, white smile can improve the overall appearance of teeth, making them look more youthful and healthy. Teeth whitening is one of our most frequently performed cosmetic dentistry procedures.
Due to the changes in the mineral structure of teeth as you grow older, teeth may appear darker or duller. Smoking, poor oral hygiene, and ingesting darkly colored liquids may also lead to stains and discoloration on your teeth.
We perform in-office teeth whitening treatments, such as Zoom!, which work by using highly concentrated hydrogen peroxide gel. The gel may be reapplied by our skilled dentist up to three times, in 15 minute intervals, within one office visit. Our in-office treatment may whiten teeth up to eight shades! We also offer take-home teeth whitening kits so you can whiten your teeth at home and easily maintain your smile.
Our dentists provide custom dental trays for our take-home teeth whitening kits, which include professional grade hydrogen peroxide gel. Our professional teeth whitening kits are twice as effective as over-the-counter kits.
Many media websites may claim to offer natural teeth whitening home remedies, although even simple ingredients may cause future oral health issues if not applied properly. Ingredients such as lemon juice, which is highly acidic, can wear down tooth enamel. Our dentists advise patients to consult with a professional before performing these methods.
Some helpful teeth whitening tips include drinking darkly colored liquids through a straw and avoiding smoking.
