One of the first things you notice about people is their smile. When you meet someone with a bright, natural smile, it catches your attention.
Improving the appearance of your smile may be even easier than you realize. Many patients achieve the look they’ve always wanted with our simple dental bleaching procedure.
This quick treatment is both safe and inexpensive. Just call us or let us know at an appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth. The treatment can be applied to only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower teeth, depending on what is visible when you are speaking and smiling.
Within two days, your custom bleach splints will be prepared and ready for you to pick up. You will also take home a special bleaching agent that you place in the clear splints. Simply wear the splints for a few hours each day, and our bleaching agent removes the stains from your enamel in a very short time. The formulation we use does not alter your tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. Once your teeth reach the level of brightness you desire, you can stop the daily bleaching. At that point, only an occasional treatment is necessary to maintain your newly white teeth.
Dental bleaching is successful in correcting many tooth discolorations. Teeth may have been stained or darkened by food, tobacco use, aging or injury. Employing the most advanced bleaching technology, we can offer a safe way to obtain a bright, beautiful smile. When tooth discoloration is extreme, restorative procedures such as crowns or veneers may be the only way to achieve whiter teeth. However, since bleaching treatments are low in price, bleaching is usually worth trying first.
- Corrects yellowed, stained and darkened tooth surfaces
- Effective for people of all ages
- Provides an almost permanent result, restoring brightness and vitality to your smile
How is it done?
An impression is taken of your teeth in order to create a customized splint or mouthguard that will submerge the teeth in the bleaching agent. The solution is used nightly for three to four hours over the course of one to two weeks. By that point, significant whitening will have occurred. In some cases, the improvement is not only noticeable, but incredible. To restore your confidence in your appearance, bleaching technology offers the fastest, easiest way to correct yellowing, aging or stained teeth.
Over-the-counter bleaching products are readily available at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products contain chemicals that can potentially harm the sensitive gums and teeth, we highly recommend using the customized treatments our practice can prepare for you.
