Teeth Whitening

Teeth stains are inevitable due to our consumption of a variety of foods and drinks (soda, coffee, red wine, 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 than others due to the way the whitening material is applied. 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.

The two main methods of professional whitening are tray whitening and in-office whitening. In tray whitening, we make an impression of your teeth and make a custom tray. Then we give you a supply of whitening gel and you’ll wear the tray for a few hours each day (techniques differ) until we reach the result you want.

On the other hand, in-office whitening is the most efficient means of whitening. There are a number of different types used, but the process is very similar for each; you can have your teeth whitened in one session and achieve significant results.

Not sure which is right for you? We’ll be happy to help you decide which method is more suitable for you and your teeth.
