Everyone wants to make a great first impression, and a bright and beautifully white smile is always essential. Many of us can spend countless amounts of time and money trying to perfect our winning smile with over-the-counter teeth whitening agents, but these often prove ineffective. Contact us for a gentle touch and a lasting treatment process that will help get rid of unsightly stains and discoloration.

There are two basic chemical agents that we often use for teeth whitening services, hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide. Each of these offer different results. The hydrogen peroxide is very powerful and highly concentrated, only to be used by a professional in the field of dentistry. The home versions for teeth whitening often employ the carbamide peroxide in very low dosages of concentration. Your dentist can also use this whitening agent but in increased levels. It might be used over longer periods of time to provide a more gradual effect.

What causes our teeth to become stained and discolored?

Most people think that only smoking or coffee drinking is what leads to the dimming of the smile. But grinding of the teeth, either consciously or subconsciously, can also provide these results. Still others might require teeth whitening even if none of these conditions occur. Everyone is born with a unique interior color of tooth pigmentation that will gradually emerge over time as our enamel begins to wear from normal every day eating habits. The use of excessive amounts of fluoride can also cause this condition, and fluoride is found in everything from our toothpaste to our drinking water. Even severe physical trauma can cause the white enamel to become less vibrant.

Custom Tray whitening: Custom trays are made for both the upper and lower arch. Whitening gel is placed in these trays and the trays are then worn for 30 to 60 minutes at a time. 7 to 15 sessions are usually required to get to the desired appearance when you first begin.  Predictability – If you want to be whiter, then just keep doing it.  If you feel you have reached the desired whiteness, then stop.  This option is very adjustable to anyone’s schedule and desires.  For maintenance we recommend whitening your teeth right after you get your teeth cleaned, it will give you an added boost of whiteness.

This option will give you a brighter and more youthful smile. Choose a teeth whitening system that is right for your circumstances and then enjoy the result of brightening everyone’s day by your smile :).
