Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “bleaching” procedure.
It’s safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to begin bleaching. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much of each shows when you talk and smile.
An impression is taken to make a specialized “tray” “mouth guard” or “stent” to hold the bleach against the teeth. In only a day or two your custom bleaching trays will be ready for you.
We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear, nearly invisible trays. With only a few hours of wear per day, our special bleaching agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant.
When your teeth reach the brightness you want, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile. We may want to take “before” and “after” photos at your appointments.
Dental bleaching can be used to correct many tooth discolorations. These discolorations may have been caused by staining, aging, or damage from medications to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful, “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns , or veneers may be the only choice. However, because of the low cost of bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a try.
- Corrects brown, yellow, and mottled tooth staining
- Works on people of all ages.
- Is a near permanent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness, and bringing a smile “alive”.
Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available at drug stores and pharmacies; however, since these products can harm the gums and teeth, and may not be proven to be effective, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends.
