Teeth whitening is one of the most commonly requested cosmetic dentistry treatments because nearly everyone deals with stained or yellowing teeth at some point in their lives. Choosing professional teeth whitening treatments ensures more dramatic results in a shorter amount of time compared to over-the-counter whitening solutions. We offer both ZOOM! in-office teeth whitening and a take-home whitening system that allows you to use professional-grade whitening products in the comfort of your own home.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

With in-office whitening, you’ll achieve a radiant smile in about an hour.  In office teeth whitening is safe and effective, particularly for stubborn stains. Your gums and lips will be protected from damage while a whitening gel is applied to your teeth. This gel is activated by a special light that whitens your smile by several shades in a single treatment. To protect your teeth from sensitivity, we follow our  treatments with an application of fluoride to strengthen your tooth enamel. Even after your appointment, your teeth may continue to whiten for a few days following the treatment. When paired with a take-home whitening system, you’ll be able to maintain your results for years to come.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening Treatments

Our take-home whitening treatments can be used in conjunction with in office whitening or separately. We use dental impressions to create custom vinyl trays that fit flush against your teeth to optimize your treatment. You’ll place a carbamide peroxide gel in the trays and wear them for three to 30 minutes each day, depending on the strength of the gel being used. With 10 to 14 days of daily use, your smile will be brighter. For significant stains, continuous use for several months may be needed for there to be a noticeable difference.

Because maintenance and upkeep are key for long-term results, we offer a Lifetime Whitening Club for our patients. Ask us about how to enroll in the program at your next appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions About Teeth Whitening

What is the best whitener for your teeth?

If you’re looking for the most noticeable results in the shortest amount of time, professional in-office teeth whitening treatments are the best option for a brighter smile. Not only do they produce dramatic results, but during a professional teeth whitening treatment steps are taken to protect the soft tissues in your mouth and minimize tooth sensitivity.

Is teeth whitening bad for your teeth?

Some patients experience sensitivity after teeth whitening treatments, but this sensitivity is temporary and does not mean that your teeth are damaged. Some store-bought whitening treatments can damage the enamel of your teeth if they are abrasive or not used as directed, but professional teeth whitening treatments are designed with safety as a priority.

Does insurance pay for teeth whitening?

No, dental insurance does not pay for teeth whitening treatments because they’re considered cosmetic procedures.

How can I permanently whiten my teeth?

Teeth whitening treatments are not permanent, but you can help maintain your results by brushing for two minutes twice a day, flossing once a day, going to the dentist for cleanings every six months, and using at-home whitening treatments for upkeep when needed.

Can yellow teeth become white?

Yes, yellow teeth can be whitened with in-office or at-home whitening treatments, cosmetic bonding, or dental veneers, depending on the cause and severity of your stains. If you have yellow teeth, there are plenty of options available to help you have a whiter smile.
