Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening can be done at our office or at home with customized trays. If you’re interested in a whiter smile, talk with our dentist at your next appointment or schedule a whitening appointment today!

In-Office Teeth Whitening

The first professional option is commonly referred to as in-office whitening. This procedure is performed in a dental office. During an appointment, your dental professional will apply a whitening gel to the surface of your teeth. The entire office visit generally takes about 90 minutes and you will be able to see results immediately.

At-Home Teeth Whitening

  • Tray Whitening

Are you busy and on the go? If your time is limited and you don’t want a lengthy visit to restore your smile, then our take home teeth whitening system may be the right choice for you! Our custom-made take-home tray teeth system is a popular method for improving your smile.

Simply wear these trays a few hours each day, and progressively, your teeth will brighten. Once your teeth are your desired level of color, just wear your trays every now and then and maintain your healthy new smile. Your custom trays will fit perfectly and are used with a special whitening gel that you can apply in the comfort of your own home and at your convenience.

  • Paint-On Teeth Whiteners

There are many over-the-counter teeth whitening options, and one type of readily accessible whitening products is commonly referred to as a “paint-on” teeth whitener. Paint-on whiteners can be purchased over-the-counter and generally are less expensive and less effective than whitening strips or professional options. Paint-on teeth whiteners consist of a gel that is applied to the tooth using a small brush. Paint-on whitening gel hardens into a film that coats the teeth, and dissolves in the mouth. As with any teeth-whitening regimen, it is wise to consult with a dental professional before use.

  • Teeth-Whitening Strips

Teeth-whitening strips are thin, flexible plastic (polyethylene) strips with a thin film of hydrogen peroxide on one side. Whitening strip kits come with two types of strips: strips for the upper teeth and strips for the lower teeth. The whitening agent is applied by placing the strips across your teeth and gently pressing the strips to ensure contact with all your teeth. Teeth-whitening strips are typically worn for 30 minutes a day, twice a day. The duration of treatment will vary.

  • Whitening Toothpaste and Mouthwash

The least expensive options are whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes. Designed to have “whitening” capabilities, toothpastes and mouthwashes work to remove surface stains using mild abrasives. However, unlike the materials used in professional whitening procedures, these products do not lighten the actual color shade of the tooth. Whitening toothpastes affect surface stains and will mildly lighten your teeth.
