Teeth Whitening Techniques

“In-office” Whitening

Keep your smile bright and whiten your teeth!

Teeth whitening can be accomplished by several techniques of “bleaching” available today. The most common method used is the “in-office” method. This technique combines a strong bleaching agent and a special UV light. The bleach is placed over the isolated teeth and the special light is used to assist the bleaching material and lighten the teeth.
This method is generally more controlled and probably better for people who have tetracycline stains or streaks on their teeth.

“At-home” Whitening

The “at-home” technique involves making trays which fit into the mouth. These trays are then filled with bleaching materials. When worn for only a few hours a day, noticeable results are seen generally within a few days. Some stains may take a couple weeks to see progress.

Results vary from individual to individual. We will be happy to to help you decide on which method works best for you. Some of the factors involved include the intensity of the stains, whether or not you have fillings or crowns on your front teeth, as well as what may have caused the stains.
