Whitening is a cosmetic procedure that brightens and lightens teeth that are discolored or stained. Custom fitted trays are fabricated for the patient to wear at home daily for approximately two weeks or until desired results. These customized trays are designed to hold a small amount of whitening gel which breaks down the stains on your teeth. Once the desired outcome is achieved, touch ups are typically recommended yearly.
Teeth whitening is the service requested the most and understandably. Who doesn’t want a beautiful white smile? The ideal candidate for teeth whitening has natural tooth structure shown in the smile. A crown or bridge will not change from teeth whitening. If you are soon to undergo veneers or treatment to the anterior teeth, teeth whitening prior to the start of treatment is commonly recommended.
