Tooth Whitening

Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think.

Many people achieve the look they've been dreaming of with one of our simple bleaching procedures. Dental bleaching can correct many tooth discolorations. These discolorations may have been caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful, brilliant smile.

In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be a better choice, but because of the low cost of bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a solid try. This treatment works on people of all ages and is a near permanent solution for a dull smile, restoring brightness and bringing a smile to life. Just let us know at your appointment if you would like to begin bleaching. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much of each shows when you talk and smile. We offer two types of whitening services in our office: in-office whitening and take home whitening.

Take Home Whitening

Silver fillings have many drawbacks. The edges of silver fillings can wear down, become weak, or break. This results in the tooth not being protected and lets cavities get started once again. With age, the metal of a silver filling expands, contracts, and can split. They can corrode, leak, and cause stains on your teeth and gums. Fortunately, silver fillings can safely be replaced with tooth colored restorations.

In-Office Whitening

Our in-office whitening system uses state of the art technology to whiten your teeth an average of one to eight shades in a little over an hour while you relax at our office. It’s ideal for anyone who wants immediate results. Whether you decide to only do the in-office bleaching, or follow it up with nighttime tray bleaching, a whiter smile is a phone call away.

Is tooth whitening safe?

Yes, research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, many dentists consider whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. Tooth bleaching is not recommended for children under 13 years of age and pregnant or lactating women.
