Teeth whitening is a bleaching process that reverses discolorations of enamel (the outside layer of tooth structure) to create a whiter, brighter appearance. It does not require anesthesia and no natural tooth structure is lost. We offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening systems. Sometimes we recommend a combination of both to give you the best results in the least amount of time. In-office tooth whitening can be accomplished in one to three visits that take from 30 minutes to an hour. Take-home teeth whitening involves being fitted for thin custom mouth trays for use at home. There are many products that offer varying concentrations of bleaching agents, which determines the wear time required for whitening results.
