Whitening and Bleaching


Over time our teeth tend to become discolored or stained. Whether this is from smoking, coffee, or any other foods, a beautiful smile could be closer than you think. We offer a safe, inexpensive solution to an unsightly smile. Whitening your teeth is a very simple procedure that can be completed in relatively short period of time. Rest assured, there is no actual "bleach" in the process. We use a carbamide peroxide solution that safely removes stains from the enamel without damaging or changing the structure of your teeth.


We offer two ways to whiten your teeth. We offer the dentist supervised take home whitening, and an in-office whitening procedure.

1. The first step in the take home whitening process is impressions. We will take full impressions of your upper and lower teeth. These impressions will be made into custom bleaching trays. The trays will fit onto your teeth perfectly so there is a small possibility of gum damage from the bleaching solution.

The second step is to place the bleaching solution in the trays and wear them for a few hours a day. Within 7-10 days, you will see a significant improvement in the color of your teeth. Your smile will look brighter and younger. We will take before and after photos so that you will be able to compare the amazing transformation.

2. The in office procedure does not involve a light or "laser", just a safely applied and supervised high concentration whitening agent. You can relax in our office for 1-2 hours while we apply the whitening agent. You will also have impressions made and custom trays fabricated so that you can continue the process at home, and touch up later.

We use Opalescence whitening products from Ultradent. Please visit their website for further information: www.opalescence.com

*Whitening only works on natural teeth and may not be effective in all cases. We will inform you as to the potential whitening for your specific situation.
