Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is faster, more effective, and longer lasting that treatments you find over the counter. As we age, our teeth darken over time. We can brighten your teeth by five to ten shades in a single session, but maintaining good oral hygiene and steering away from certain foods and beverages will help keep any future whitening services to a minimum.

 

In-office Whitening


Procedure:

  1. Teeth are cleaned and polished

  2. A protective barrier is applied to the gums

  3. A prescription strength whitening agent is applied to the teeth

  4. Whitening agent is left on teeth for 15-20 minutes, rinsed off, and re-applied (3 times)

  5. Protective gum barrier is removed

  6. Teeth and gums are rinsed

Things to avoid after whitening treatment:

  • Tobacco products
  • Coffee and tea
  • Red wine
  • Food coloring

  • Any bright-colored drinks
