At-Home Tooth Whitening
What is At-Home Teeth Whitening?
At-home tooth whitening is safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much you show when you talk and smile.
In only a day or two, your custom bleach trays will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear splints. With only an hour of wear per day, our special bleaching agent lifts stains right out of your enamel in a very short time, without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional touch-up treatment is needed to maintain your new smile.
Dental bleaching can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice. However, because of the low cost of bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a try.

Considerations for Teeth Whitening
Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available for purchase at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can cause harm to the gums and teeth, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends. Although teeth whitening has wide success, there is no guarantee that your teeth will lighten. Some staining is more difficult to lighten than others, and there is no method to indicate how light your teeth will get.
