Teeth Whitening

As people age, teeth generally darken.  Although shade is not necessarily an indication of a healthy mouth, it appears so to others. Teeth whitening is an easy fix that not only makes a smile look better, but boosts confidence. 

If you are a person with sensitivity issues like cracked teeth, there are whitening products for you.  Special ingredients that help with the sensitivity can make a difference. People with darker teeth or heavy, deep stains will take longer to remove.  Teeth whitening will probably be a more lengthy process. If you have sensitive teeth, it is important to discuss this with your doctor before beginning treatment.

Additionally, our doctors are committed to a healthy smile. We believe in removing decay and making sure your smile is stable before focusing on tooth color. Making an analogy to home building, it is important to have a stable foundation and walls before you focus on paint color of your new home. In the same way, our doctors will make sure treating your smile is sequenced in a way that will have a long lasting result.

Teeth whitening is a relatively easy process that can make a significant difference in a smile.  If you are interested in whitening your teeth, your dentist can help you with the best method.  Although teeth whitening is always an ongoing process, once they reach a white shade, touch-ups are easy.

Recent advances in chemistry allow multiple treatment options to be offered. Whether you have a single dark tooth as a result of trauma or a childhood injury, or your teeth have yellowed, our doctors know what it takes to give you the smile you've always wanted. In the case of a single dark tooth, our doctors can use a technique called walking bleach. In this procedure, your doctor inserts medicine directly into your tooth. The result is a balanced and even shade of all your teeth.
