Is tooth whitening right for me?
Tooth whitening is a popular and effective option for people who want to brighten and whiten their smile, and rejuvenate their appearance.
What are my tooth whitening options?
We offer two general types of tooth whitening: In-office and at-home tooth whitening procedures. Both are very effective options. In-office whitening is done in a single visit, whereas at-home tooth whitening is done over the course of several treatments, depending on your specific needs.
Can all teeth be whitened effectively using these procedures?
No. Tooth whitening is only effective on surface stains. Teeth that are darkened due to illness, injury, or certain chemicals such as tetracycline can be treated using other techniques such as porcelain veneers and dental bonding.
How long will my tooth whitening last?
Your teeth will be whiter for a long period of time after a professional tooth whitening procedure. Most patients remain happy with the results of their whitening for a year or more after the procedure.
You can prolong the results of your tooth whitening with proper dental hygiene and by avoiding tobacco, red wine, coffee, and other staining agents.
Can I have my teeth re-whitened in the future?
Yes. Many patients choose to have their teeth re-whitened as the effects begin to dull.
