Teeth Whitening

If your teeth are not as white as you would like them to be, there are several methods that our  cosmetic dentist can considerably brighten your smile. Tooth whitening procedures will remove stains and debris from the surface of the teeth and bring them back to their natural color. You can buy over-the-counter products that claim to whiten teeth, and they will brighten your smile to a certain extent, but to get the best results you need to see a professional. Tooth bleaching will go one step farther than whitening and may actually brighten your teeth beyond their natural appearance.

There are several ways that a teeth whitening treatment can be done. A treatment may be performed in the dental office where a specially formulated peroxide gel will be placed on the teeth and allowed to remain there for approximately 15 to 20 minutes. Another method is when you are given trays to take home with you that you will fill with solution and wear for a short period of time each day over the course of one to two weeks.
