How to Brighten Your Smile Successfully


The color and shade of your teeth play a significant role in your smile’s overall appearance. When they become stained, your smile can seem less healthy and attractive, which can have a negative impact on your self-confidence. Fortunately, teeth stains are typically simple to get rid of with the help of professional cosmetic teeth-whitening. The safe but potent topical treatment can be applied to the surfaces of your teeth, where it systematically breaks up the deposits of color molecules and other staining factors on your tooth enamel. For your convenience, we can design your teeth-whitening treatment according to your schedule, with a choice of at-home treatment or a single, in-office procedure.

Whitening your teeth at home

At-home teeth-whitening combines the potency of professional treatment with the convenience of an over-the-counter (OTC) hygiene product. We can custom-design a kit that includes a set of whitening trays made specifically for you and a supply of professional-strength bleaching gel. The trays make it easy for you to apply the gel evenly to the surfaces of your teeth, which you’ll do for just a couple of hours each day from the comfort of home. After about 10 days, the gel will complete the process of removing your teeth stains and brightening your healthy, natural tooth structure by several shades.

Single-visit whitening at our office

If you want a whiter smile faster, or simply prefer in-office treatment to at-home treatment, then we may suggest a single-visit whitening procedure. During your visit, we’ll carefully apply the gel to the surfaces of your teeth, then use a specialized light that stimulates the gel into rapidly removing the stains from your tooth enamel. The process may be repeated multiple times for optimal results, though in-office treatment typically lasts just over an hour.
