Keeping our teeth their whitest is a lot harder than it sounds. With all the coffee, wine, smoking and other foods that have the ability to stain our teeth on a daily basis, even proper maintenance sometimes leaves them a little lackluster. Teeth whitening is an excellent way to restore the natural color of your teeth or even make them whiter than your natural color if you would like.
To accomplish the whitening of your teeth, we offer a few options. Our first option is our custom tray whitening system. To begin this process 2 appointments are required. The first step is to make an impression of your teeth. With this impression, we'll craft your custom whitening trays that you can use over and over. At the second appointment we will show you how to place the whitening gel in the tray so you can whiten while you sleep. We will then check you in 2 weeks to follow up how your bleaching is going and see if any changes in gel strength need to be made, or if you need to bleach longer. Different shades of teeth can take differing amounts of time for optimal results. Our custom whitening trays can often result in a whiter smile of 4 - 8 shades! The second option we have is Opalescence Go Trays which are 10 upper and lower trays pre-filled with a medium level gel similar to what we use in our custom trays. This can be a great way to quickly brighten your smile for a special event. You wear these trays for approximately 30 minutes a day for 10 days. We also carry the Professional Strength Crest White Strips, which are about four times stronger than the ones you can buy over the counter.
Please contact us today to see if you are a candidate for any of our whitening options. Our doctors would love help you decide which one is best to help brighten your smile!
