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. Maintaining good oral hygiene and steering away from certain foods and beverages will help keep any future whitening services to a minimum. 

 

Take-Home Whitening Trays


Procedure:

  1. Thorough cleansing and polishing of teeth

  2. Application of whitening agent to tray (trays are fabricated for you after impressions that we take in the office.)

  3. Place tray on teeth

  4. Whitening agent is left on teeth for several minutes

    If there is sensitivity, lower the amount of time the tray is in place.
  5. Teeth and gums are rinsed

Post-procedure Care

If you are experiencing sensitivity, you can lower the amount of time that the trays are in place or you can lower the strength of the whitening gel. You can also use an anti-sensitivity toothpaste if needed.
