Teeth Whitening

teethwhitening

Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure in the United States. It’s not just for brides-to-be or celebrities. Everyone benefits from turning up his or her smile a few watts.

Yes, tooth enamel is strong but it can lose its shine from the effects of certain foods and drinks, age, and injury. Teeth become discolored in two ways: extrinsically (stains that originate from outside the tooth) and intrinsically (those that originate from inside the tooth). Extrinsic stains come from dark foods like berries, coffee, tea, and tobacco products. Intrinsic stains originate within teeth from excessive fluoride exposure, old and failing dental work, trauma, and certain medications. Extrinsic stains are easiest to lighten because they are most responsive to professional whitening systems. Intrinsic stains most often need a little more help with other procedures, like dental bonding and porcelain veneers.

Whiten at Home

You can whiten your teeth in the privacy and convenience of your own home with our take-home teeth-whitening kits. These take-home trays are the next best thing to professional office whitening. The system comes with custom-fitted whitening trays and tubes of professional-strength whitening gel.  You wear the gel-filled trays on your teeth for 15-30 minutes every day while you go about your business. Your teeth will be noticeably whitened in one week’s time. Talk to us about our exciting at-home whitening promotion!
