Teeth Whitening

 

There are many products and techniques available for patients who want to achieve a brighter smile, and with so many options available, it can be difficult to choose the safest method that is right for you. The best way to begin any teeth-whitening regimen is to schedule an appointment and talk to your doctor about the differences between in-office professional whitening and at-home whitening.  We will examine your teeth to make sure you are able to bleach them safely and effectively. We will then recommend the most appropriate method of whitening your teeth.


In-Office Teeth Whitening  

The first professional option is commonly referred to as in-office whitening. This procedure is performed in a dental office. During an appointment, your dental professional will apply a whitening gel to the surface of your teeth. The entire office visit generally takes about 90 minutes and you will be able to see results immediately.  


At-Home Teeth Whitening  

  • Tray Whitening - Tray bleaching is a type of professional whitening that uses custom-made trays and whitening gel only available through your dentist. The whitening gel is placed in custom-fitted trays that fit perfectly over your teeth. As the peroxide in the gel breaks down, hydroxy-radicals help whiten stained teeth. Unlike strips, this process whitens all your natural teeth and may contain ingredients intended to provide maximum comfort. At-home professional tray whitening generally takes ten to 14 days, although you may notice results in as little as three to five days.​
  • Strip Whitening - You can buy stock strips and apply them to the teeth at home. This is a less expensive option, however it is far less effective and the results do not last as long as the other methods.
