Tooth Whitening

Dramatically whiten your smile.

The problem:

The Solution:

Plastic whitening trays will be made from models of your teeth. You will then place a special whitening gel in each tray and wear the trays in your mouth for an hour or so each day. (Many patients wear their trays after dinner and before bed.) A significant change in tooth color is usually seen in just a few sessions.


Modern tooth whitening systems are highly effective and have dramatic results. Many celebrities consistently whiten their teeth to improve their appearance.


Occasionally, patients may experience some gum or tooth sensitivity when using their trays. These symptoms subside when whitening is discontinued for several days.


Accelerated, in-office whitening is another option. This process can result in whiter, brighter teeth in just one office visit. For the best benefit, you receive the at-home whitening system at no additional charge following in-office whitening. Please consult with the doctor to see if this procedure may work for you.

Occasionally, teeth may be stained in a way that limits the effectiveness of tooth whitening. In those instances, porcelain veneers or crowns are an excellent alternative.
