Keeping our teeth their whitest is a lot harder than it sounds. With all the coffee, wine, smoking and other foods that have the ability to stain our teeth on a daily basis, even proper maintenance sometimes leaves them a little lackluster. Teeth whitening is an excellent way to restore the natural color of your teeth or possibly make them even whiter than your natural color.  This office utilizes two whitening proceedures:


Impressions are taken of your upper and lower teeth.  Soft plastic trays are fabricated to fit tightly over your teeth.  When the trays are delivered to you, you are given several tubes of whitening gel.  You will be instructed how to place the gel in the trays at home.  The tray and gel system are used for approximately 14 days, either overnight or up to one hour per day. Teeth can lighten up to 8 shades with this method!


ZOOM In-Office Whitening

This proceedure is done in the office.  Your front teeth are isolated with a rubber dam, a special bleaching gel is applied and a intense light is directed to your teeth and the gel.  This proceedure takes approximately an hour and one half of your time.  This office also fabricates trays for you to take home for touch ups in the future.  Teeth can lighten up to 10 shades with this proceedure.

Not everyone is a candidate for teeth whitening.  A complete examination should be performed before proceeding with the whitening proceedure. Please contact us today to see if you are a candidate for this type of whitening
