Teeth Whitening Q&A

Do you wish that you had whiter teeth? Have you already tried and have been disappointed by the over-the-counter whitening toothpastes and those mail order kits? Well, here is a safe, easy, and successful way that you can REALLY whiten your teeth.

Using a professional whitening system, you can get dramatic results in a matter of days by whitening your teeth either at home or in a single short appointment. Interested? Questions?

Q: What is tooth whitening?

It is a process that lightens the discolorations of enamel and dentin. In-office whitening uses a gel that is activated by a specially calibrated light. The at-home system uses a whitening gel that is retained in a custom-fitted appliance.

Q:Is the process safe?

Clinical research has shown that using a properly formulated professional gel under the supervision of a dentist is safe for teeth and gums.

Q:How long does it take?

In-office whitening is completed in 45-60 minutes, while results for the at home variety are usually seen in the first several days. Maximum results generally occur when the process is continued for 10 to 14 days (or nights).

Q:How long do the results last?

The teeth will ALWAYS be lighter than they were. However, some patients may choose to touch-up periodically, one or two nights every six months. If you think that you might benefit from this tooth whitening process, be sure to let us know. We would be happy to assist in providing you with a whiter, brighter smile!
