It's never too late to brighten your smile!
Teeth whitening is a popular procedure to make your teeth whiter, brighter and more attractive. Bleaching can be used to whiten stained and discolored teeth, or simply to enhance a dull smile. Either way, whitening is a safe and relatively painless procedure.
In-office bleaching is ideal if you want immediate results. The whole process takes about an hour, taking little time out of busy schedules. A protective gel is applied to your gums to protect the soft tissue following which a special light-activated gel is applied to your teeth and a light or laser is used to enhance the action of the agent. Finally, the patient receives a take-home gel and instructions to keep the smile bright. The result is dramatically whiter teeth that will last for years.
Tray whitening is a less-expensive and convenient at-home whitening treatment. The results are more gradual. An impression is taken at the dentist's office in order to create a customized clear tray. Trays are generally ready within a few days, depending, and the patient must follow instructions for how to apply the gel and how often to use it. Following the set treatment period, maximum whitening results and a dazzling smile are achieved. An occasional treatment can be used to maintain the new smile.
