Want something to smile about?
How about a safe, simple way that can give you dramatically whiter teeth? With age and/or consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea, colas, tobacco, red wine, etc., your teeth may become discolored. There are many products on the market designed to help restore your teeth to their former whiteness. Professional whitening systems, available only in dental offices, provide the most effective and reliable results.
Take Home Whitening Procedure
Almost anyone may enjoy the benefits of tooth whitening. First, we can determine if you are a viable candidate for this procedure through a thorough oral exam, including a shade assessment. We then take impressions and make a custom-fit mouth appliance. You place the whitening gel in the appliance and wear for short periods daily for one to three weeks. Tooth whitening gel will only whiten natural teeth. It will not whiten, nor harm bonding, caps, crowns, bridges, fillings, or any other artificial dental work.
Safety and Results
Rest assured that tooth whitening is a well-established procedure in cosmetic dentistry. Hydrogen peroxide, the active agent in whitening solutions, has also been safely used for many years in the treatment of gums and other oral soft tissue. The degree of whiteness will vary from patient to patient, depending on the structure of the teeth. Teeth typically become several shades whiter. By following some simple post whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before. To keep your teeth looking their best, we recommend flossing, brushing twice daily, and occasional touch-ups with whitening gel.
