Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple whitening procedure.
In only a day or two your custom whitening trays will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special whitening agent that you put into the clear, almost invisible trays.
With only a few hours of wear per day, our special peroxide whitening agent penetrates deep into the enamel to remove stains in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. You continue whitening until your teeth reach the brightness you want. Your teeth will always be whiter than when you first began. For most, a once a year touch-up is all that is needed to maintain your new smile.
Teeth whitening can be used to correct many tooth discolorations. These discolorations may have been caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in whitening technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful, brilliant smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice. But because of the low cost of whitening treatments, it is nearly always worth a try. To read more about veneers, please visit our porcelain veneers page.

How is teeth whitening done?
An impression is taken in the office and then a tray will be fabricated specifically for you to fit firmly over your teeth. The appliance is shaped to hold the bleaching gel directly over your teeth. This system is used each night for about 3-4 hours for a week or two, after which significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, whitening technology offers improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth.
Over-the-counter whitening agents are available at drug stores and pharmacies. These products are not as powerful as professional teeth whitening techniques and can potentially harm the gums and teeth.
