Teeth Whitening

request-free-consultationTeeth stains are inevitable due to our consumption of a variety of foods and drinks (soda, spicy food, coffee, etc.). However, advanced teeth whitening technology has enabled dentists to whiten teeth without adversely affecting the tooth structure. Almost all whitening methods are similar in concept, but some are much more effective because of the way the whitening material is delivered to the teeth.

Another contributing factor is the concentration of the material, which is why less potent over-the-counter whitening systems usually don’t give patients the results they are hoping for. Our office has moved away from the 1 day whitening processes because we feel that they are not in the patient’s best interest physically or financially and have moved to support two different tray whitening systems.

Tray whitening is our office’s preferred method of whitening because patients have more control over the shade they are trying to achieve. Our first choice is the Bravo Professional Tooth Whitening program. An impression is taken and a custom tray is made for the patient. Then a supply of whitening gel is given to the patient and he/she wears the tray for the recommended amount of time each day until the desirable result is achieved. A less expensive option with a good result is the Opalescence Treswhite Supreme whitening treatment that comes in pre-filled disposable whitening trays. You simply insert the trays in your mouth and wear for the recommended time.
