Teeth Whitening: What are my bleaching options?

We offer a few different bleaching methods. Bleaching is a great option for both men and women to brighten their smile! You may notice some sensitivity while using the bleaching products, but this is not a permanent side effect.  All of our bleaching products are safe to use and safe for your teeth.

One option is the tray method.  We take impressions of the teeth and make custom fit trays. The trays are used at home once a day for one to three weeks, depending on each individuals’s teeth. This is great for people who want to keep their teeth white, as you keep the trays and can do touch up as needed.

We also offer an in-office bleaching method. This procedure takes place in the office for approximately two hours.  We systematically place bleach on the teeth for 12-15 minute intervals to acheive the desired whiteness. This procedure also includes the custom fit bleaching trays in order to keep the teeth nice and white.  It is recommended that you contiue to bleach at home with the trays for the next 3-5 days in order to prevent the color from fading.

Another option is the Crest Whitestrips Supreme.  These are only available from your dentist office due to the the fact that the strips contain a higher concentration of bleaching material. Whitestrips are used by placing a disposable plastic strip on the upper and lower teeth twice a day for 2-3 weeks.  Crest Whitestrips Supreme contain 3 times more bleach than any over the counter whitening products.

Next time you stop in, talk to your hygienist or dentist about which option is best for you!
