Professional teeth whitening is a safe and easy way to brighten up your smile. If you are satisfied with the overall appearance of your teeth but simply desire them to be lighter in color, bleaching them may be the appropriate treatment.
The treatment takes two appointments. At the first appointment, we take impressions of your teeth in order to fabricate the clear, thin, flexible, custom-molded “trays”. These trays fit right over your teeth and you can wear them when you’re awake or asleep. The second appointment is scheduled for when the trays are ready (usually the next day). At this appointment, we review all of the instructions for use of the trays with professional bleaching gel (you have a choice of flavors and we have three different strengths available). We also take photos of your teeth to document initial tooth shade. These photos can be used for comparison later in the bleaching process in order to assess how much your teeth have whitened. For most patients, tooth bleaching leads to delightful results.
