Teeth Whitening, also known as bleaching, is a simple dental treatment used to brighten the color of natural tooth enamel. Patients can choose to have in-office Tooth Whitening completed in 1 visit or try take-home whitening systems.
Teeth Whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, so it's very important to evaluate existing restorations for the possible replacement of old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any of these restorations, if deemed appropriate, will be done after bleaching to match the newly whitened teeth.
Teeth Whitening is not permanent and a touch up will be needed. Results will vary from patient to patient. It is recommended that you avoid coffee, tea, wine and smoking.
Professional, in-office teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure in the world today. Unlike home-use systems that incorporate low-dose bleaching agents, in-office whitening takes place under carefully monitored conditions which allow for the safe, controlled, pain-free use of a relatively high concentration of bleaching gel yielding results that are visible immediately.
