Cosmetic Teeth-Whitening Treatment

Teeth that become dull or stained over time might not be in any serious trouble, but their appearance can have a serious impact on your smile and self-confidence. Professional teeth-whitening is a common cosmetic treatment that allows us to dramatically brighten stained teeth in a way that fits your schedule most conveniently. Whether you choose at-home teeth-whitening, or faster and more advanced treatment in our office, the process of erasing stains and brightening teeth can do wonders for your smile’s appearance.

Convenient whitening at home

Teeth-whitening can be performed in a variety of ways, but the foundation of the treatment is the same. A potent, but safe, bleaching agent is applied to the surfaces of your teeth, and then effectively breaks up and removes the staining deposits that are dulling their appearance. With at-home treatment, the process involves custom-designing a set of trays that allow you to apply the gel yourself, evenly and with optimal results. The benefits of at-home teeth-whitening include:

  • More convenient treatment, on your own time
  • Safer and more successful than OTC products
  • Optimal teeth-whitening results in as little as 10 days
  • Easier whitening in the future, as you can keep the trays
  • And more

Laser whitening in the office

At-home treatment offers a significant level of convenience, but for patients who want a brighter smile faster, we can also perform the procedure in our office. The difference is that you won’t have to visit our office every day to have the whitening solution applied. After applying it, we can stimulate the gel using our specially calibrated laser technology. This activates the gel to rapidly remove teeth stains and brighten your teeth, and the procedure can often be completed in just over an hour. The benefits of in-office teeth-whitening treatment include:

  • Faster results for a brighter smile in a hurry
  • Safe treatment thanks to the advanced laser
  • No damage to your healthy tooth enamel
  • Eliminating stubborn teeth stains
  • And more
