Whitening

As we age, our teeth darken over time. We can brighten your teeth by five to ten shades in a single session, but maintaining good oral hygiene and steering away from certain foods and beverages will help keep any future whitening services to a minimum. We may also prescribe some medication for you to use at home that helps the whitening process.

 

In-home Whitening


Procedure:

  1. take impressions of your teeth and make stone models replicating your teeth.

  2. make plastic custom trays to fit your teeth and hold whitening agent to teeth while shielding your gums

  3. at home, you apply whitening gel in trays and wear trays whitening your teeth
