Professional whitening is faster and more effective than over the counter methods.  We offer several options for professional whitening.  We will help you decide which option is the best for you.


In-Office Whitening

This is one of the most popular dental treatments in the world.  No other whitening procedure produces faster results.  We will evaluate your teeth to determine if this is the best whitening option for you. 

Procedure:

The teeth are polished

A material is applied to protect your gums and retract your lips

A whitening product is applied

The whitening product is left on your teeth for an allotted amount of time

The teeth and gums are rinsed

This cycle may be repeated as needed


At-Home Whitening

Not everyone is a candidate for In-Office Whitening.  We offer At-Home Whitening options as well.


Post-Procedure Care

We usually recommend a product to combat post-procedure sensitivity.  This is commonly a gel or paste applied in a tray or used as a toothpaste.

Things to avoid:

Tobacco products

Coffee and tea

Red wine

Food coloring

Any bright-colored drinks
