Teeth Whitening


Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “bleaching” procedure.

Teeth Whitening Process

Dental bleaching is used to correct tooth discoloration or as a preliminary treatment to aesthetic dental restorations. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we offer a safe method for creating a beautiful “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the comparable low cost of bleaching treatments, bleaching is worth a solid try.

It’s 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 your teeth display when you talk and smile. 

Our staff will make models of your teeth in order to customize your bleaching trays. Within a few days of making the models, we will provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear trays. With only a few hours of wear per day, our whitening agent bubbles stains out of your enamel without altering tooth structure or existing dental work. When a desired brightness is reached, you can maintain your new smile with brushing, flossing, and occasional at home treatment.

 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, we recommend this process be monitored by a licensed dentist.
