What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening can provide patients with a bright white smile that builds confidence. Our teeth whitening systems provide quick and effective results, and patients can notice brighter and whiter teeth after only a few treatments.

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic service offered to help lighten and brighten teeth. The teeth whitening process helps to remove discoloration or stains from drinks, food, tobacco, or medications. Our whitening process is an accelerated whitening system that produces quick results, and does not damage the teeth or gums.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

The whitening gel contains an active ingredient, and this breaks down during the whitening process to allow oxygen to reach the enamel of the teeth. As a result, the teeth become brighter and lighter in color. Professional teeth whitening can whiten teeth up to 10 shades lighter. Most patients see results instantly, or only after a few treatments. Having bright white teeth is important and builds confidence for patients of all ages. We want our patients to be proud of their smile, and our team is here to help our patients achieve the smile they have always wanted.

What To Expect with Teeth Whitening?

This treatment uses a light to activate whitening gel. This process removes stains from food and beverages, and patients can see results instantly.

After whitening patients may experience some sensitivity, but this should subside after a few days. If needed, patients can use a toothpaste for sensitive teeth to help alleviate any sensitivity after whitening. Overall the process is simple, and works quickly to give patients a beautiful white smile.
