Professional Teeth Whitening
Millions of people complain of dulled or yellowed teeth that take away from their smiles. Discolored teeth can be associated with poor hygiene, but they are also associated with old age, and frailty of the teeth that can be caused by a few different things.
Professional teeth whitening strips make it easier to achieve a bright smile. We’ll show you how to use them correctly to achieve the results you want in the quickest amount of time.
Teeth whitening will brighten your smile and restore your confidence. While the effects of teeth whitening don’t last forever, with proper oral hygiene you could notice the effects for up to 3 years. Avoiding consuming staining foods, such as coffees or teas, will help extend the duration of the effects as well.

How is professional teeth whitening performed?
Our office currently offers two different types of professional whitening services: in-office and custom-made trays.
- In-office. These procedures start by covering up vulnerable areas inside the mouth, including the lips and gums, to prevent exposure from the peroxide. Then, we apply a high-concentrate hydrogen peroxide gel directly to the teeth and activate it. You will rest comfortably for a short time until the gel does its work. Then we remove the coverings and rinse the gel away.
- Custom-made trays. We will take a custom mold of your teeth to make clear trays that you take home, along with a whitening gel. These trays will help minimize the risk of whitening gel affecting your gums or mouth and you can whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home. All you have to do is place the whitening gel inside the trays and place the trays in your mouth.
What are the benefits of teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening brightens your smile which can raise confidence, help you appear healthier and happier and younger—even more energetic. This can go a long way in improving your overall appearance and can sometimes be achieved in just one treatment.
How do I whiten my teeth at home?
If you’re looking for a teeth whitening remedy without coming to the dentist, there are a few simple things you can try at home like brushing with baking powder, use hydrogen peroxide to brush or rinse with on an occasional basis (cut the peroxide in half so you are using a 1.5% solution and not a 3% solution, which is common for over-the-counter), use apple cider vinegar as a brushing or rinsing agent, eat more fruits and vegetables they are good for your body and your teeth, limit foods that stain your teeth such as soda, coffee and wine, limit your sugar intake and always remember to brush and floss twice a day—its still a powerful tool.
