Teeth Whitening

There are many products and techniques available for patients who want to achieve a whiter smile. With so many options available, it is best to schedule an appointment with the doctor and talk about available options such as in-office professional whitening, at-home treatments and other whitening products.


At home whitening utilizes professional strength products with custom-fitted trays made in our office that fit perfectly over your teeth. This process whitens your natural teeth and may contain ingredients intended to provide maximum comfort. At-home professional whitening generally takes 10-14 days, although you may notice results in as little as three to five days.


The other option is commonly referred to as “In-office” professional whitening which uses a curing light to enhance the effectiveness of the whitening gel by accelerating the material. This procedure can take up to an hour and is done in the office.
