Tooth whitening is a popular procedure to make teeth whiter and brighter, and therefore more attractive. Bleaching can be used to whiten stained and discolored teeth, or simply to enhance a dull smile. Either way, tooth whitening is a safe and relatively painless procedure ideal for most patients.

Our office offers two methods of whitening: In-office and tray whitening.

The in-office procedure uses an innovative product called Zoom! The procedure begins with a painless preparation that isolates your teeth while protecting your gums and lips. Next, the Zoom! gel is applied to your teeth and treated with the specially-designed light. Together, this helps stains and discoloration break up. The gel is applied in three, 15-minute sessions, during which time you can relax. You’ll be finished in a few hours – and will have a brighter, whiter smile to show for it.

Tray whitening is a less expensive whitening treatment you can use while in the comfort of your own home to gradually whiten teeth. We will first take an impression of your teeth to create a customized clear tray that you will wear to whiten your teeth. Within a few days your trays will be ready to be picked up and we will show you how to apply the special bleaching material inside the trays. The whitening gel trays should be worn 30-60 minutes up to twice a day. At the end of this period, you will see maximum whitening results that are nothing short of dazzling. Occasional treatment can be used at your convenience to maintain your new smile.
