Teeth whitening is achieved by the application of a bleaching solution called hydrogen peroxide.
There are usually several applications of the solution to achieve whiter teeth. In-office teeth whitening is the most effective approach for a number of reasons. First of all, the bleaching solution used in a dental practice is a higher concentration than over-the-counter products. Over-the-counter products have limited amounts of the chemicals that do most of the heavy lifting when it comes to making your teeth whiter. You’ll be able to get better results at a faster rate by visiting a dentist.
We also make sure that we are working with a clean slate before we begin the whitening process. We will do thorough teeth cleaning and make sure that there are not any cavities or other roadblocks that could get in the way of the procedure.

There are several different methods of teeth whitening that you might consider. Teeth whitening strips, custom trays made from an impression of your own teeth, and other over-the-counter products. The below images give an idea of what it’s like using custom trays, which allow for both in-office teeth whitening as well as continued whitening at home for maintaining a bright smile.
In a way, your teeth are like sponges! They have a tendency to absorb whatever is around them. Due to small pores like the pores you have on our skin, the natural color of your teeth becomes darker over time. Things like wine, coffee, and smoking are some of the worst culprits of coloration changes. The stains you get overtime only go away when you take active steps to remove them.
Professional teeth whitening is very safe! When administered by a professional, there’s nothing to worry about when whitening your teeth.
Teeth whitening is a process. While results can be seen after just one day, the process can vary in length depending upon the level of whitening that is wanted.
Teeth whitening is not damaging to other dental work that you have had done.
