Case Studies

Teeth Whitening

Everybody likes a bright smile. One of the most important aspects of a great smile is the color of the teeth. The easiest and safest way to brighten teeth is by dental whitening or “bleaching.”

Professional vs. Over-the-Counter Products

The most common type of total tooth whiting uses a gel-like substance containing hydrogen peroxide. We take impressions of your upper and lower teeth and make custom mouthpieces to fit you. A close fit helps the whitening gel remain in contact with your teeth. This is why professional whitening is more successful than over-the-counter products.

Whitening Process

The process is fairly easy—usually involving two to three office visits. In the first visit we take impressions, which allow us to get a perfect fit for the bleach trays. On your second visit you receive your custom bleach trays and the Night White bleach. We also will walk you through the steps to successful bleaching. In some cases there is a third visit to check the shade and status of your teeth whitening.

At home, you where the mouthpieces at night while you sleep or during the day when at rest. Most people achieve the whitening they want in one to two weeks.

Safety and Comfort

The peroxide whitening gel causes absolutely no harm to the enamel of your teeth or the gum tissue around them. Teeth whitening is a quick, easy, and effective way to brighten your smile.
