Teeth Whitening

Whitening can bring the brightness back to your teeth. Teeth can discolor over time for a variety of reasons, such as diet, trauma, certain medications and age. Whitening gels work to remove both surface and deep stains on teeth. The results can last a long time, though touch up treatments are available if needed.

Teeth whitening can be done at our office or at home with customized trays. If you’re interested in a whiter smile, talk with your dentist at your next appointment or schedule a whitening appointment today!

How does teeth whitening work?

Whitening gels penetrate your teeth to remove stains and whiten your smile. The gel is sticky and viscous so it stays in place and can continue to whiten your teeth for the duration of the treatment.

How long do whitening results last?

Teeth whitening results are very stable, leaving you with a stunning smile long after treatment is over. However, things like genetics, diet, age, some medications (like tetracycline), and certain habits (like smoking) may affect the length of your whitening results. Fortunately, touch-up treatments are quick and easy.

Will teeth whitening cause tooth sensitivity?

Tooth sensitivity is a relatively common side effect of teeth whitening. If sensitivity occurs, it is often temporary and will go away once you’ve completed the whitening process.
