Custom-Designed Smile Brightening

Teeth stains are a nuisance, and unfortunately, they may appear even when you diligently keep your teeth clean and healthy. Things like colorful foods and beverages can gradually stain your teeth over time, causing them to lose their youthful, healthy color and shine. Professional teeth-whitening offers a safe and effective cosmetic solution for erasing stains. For your optimal convenience, we can design your treatment to be performed in our office or from the comfort of your own home.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

The most common stains to appear on your teeth are known as extrinsic stains because they develop on the surfaces of your teeth. To erase them in-office, we can apply the strong but gentle bleaching agent to the surfaces of your teeth, then stimulate it with a special light. When stimulated, the gel rapidly breaks up and removes the staining deposits from your teeth surfaces, allowing you to leave our office with a brighter, healthier smile after just a single appointment.

At-Home Teeth-Whitening

In many cases, we may recommend at-home teeth-whitening, which includes a custom-designed set of trays that fit comfortably over your teeth so that you can safely self-apply the bleaching gel. For a couple of hours each day, you can wear the trays and gel at a time that’s most convenient for you. Over the course of about 10 days, the gel will gently and effectively break up the stains on your teeth’s surfaces and remove them, brightening the tooth structure to restore your smile’s healthy and vibrant shine.
