OVERVIEW

Many people have discolored teeth and suffer in silence however they may have never looked into the vast array of options available for effective treatment of discolored teeth through teeth whitening.

Personal health has always been of paramount importance for many people who may have to interact with friends, work colleagues, customers, and associates in different capacities every day of their lives. For these people it is essential to look good and take care of their appearance, including the smile.

Teeth discoloration is very common and the reasons for the problem can go as far back as childhood in some cases. The most common causes are through smoking or chewing tobacco but drinking excessive tea, coffee, or cola drinks is another common cause of teeth discoloration (it is the tannin found in these products that does the damage).

Further, even taking antibiotics as a child, trauma, poor dental hygiene habits, and general aging are some of the other main sources of the problem.

For your convenience and budget we have two methods of whitening available to you. The first is an in-office procedure called laser whitening. The Second is the use of a take-home kit that you can conveniently use at home.

Laser Whitening

Laser Teeth Whitening is one of many available dental remedies designed to revitalize the color of your teeth. Whitening strips, gels, and toothpastes are treatments that are available that you can use from home however laser teeth whitening is arguably the quickest, safest, and most effective method of teeth whitening.

In this treatment a special laser whitening gel is applied to the teeth in which a high intensity laser is used to penetrate the whitening materials.

This action in effect bleaches the teeth. This procedure takes approximately two hours to complete. It is a safe treatment that specifically focuses on the affected teeth and therefore will not affect the gum tissue in any way.

The only possible side effect to laser tooth whitening is that the patient experiences slight sensitivity to hot and cold stimuli for approximately two to three days following the treatment.

Take-Home Whitening Kit

Take-home whitening kits are the second method and involve preparing custom trays created from simple impression of your mouth. Our lab will create trays that you will take home and use at your convenience.

There are several advantages to using this system. First, we custom fit the trays to you so there is never any risk of ingesting the whitening agents. Additionally, our whitening agents are more powerful than you can purchase over-the-counter and therefore, the results will be more dramatic. Lastly, by allowing you to use this whitening package at home and at your convenience we allow you to have control over how white your tooth color will become.

Whitening Benefits

We know your smile is important. It’s one of the first things you notice when you meet someone and a whiter, brighter smile is beautiful – it can help you feel better about yourself and make a memorable impression.

Your lifestyle and the aging process can stain and darken your teeth and many things we do on a regular basis can contribute to stained teeth such as drinking coffee, tea, cola, red wine, and smoking.

Whitening can get your smile looking its best. Non-professional procedures and clinically unproven teeth whitening tips can often lead to unsatisfactory results so you should look for a whitening procedure that is:

  • Fast and convenient
  • Long lasting
  • Low sensitivity
  • Proven to be safe and effective
  • Performed by a dental professional

With proper aftercare whitened teeth can stay bright for a few years! To keep your smile bright as long as possible, try these easy tips:

  • Follow the “white teeth diet” and drink white wine instead of red wine, cappuccino instead of espresso, and grapefruit juice instead of cranberry juice.
  • Use a “whitening” toothpaste with a mild abrasive or peroxides such as Opalescence toothpaste, Supersmile, or most over-the-counter “Whitening Toothpastes” on a daily basis.
  • After Hours Care
