Dramatically whiten your smile for a cleaner, younger look!
- Dull colored or stained teeth
A great smile is one of the first things people notice about you. However, if you have ever worried about having dull, gray or yellowed teeth, you’re not alone. Many everyday things like coffee, tea and wine can significantly discolor teeth. Some foods, such as berries and chocolate, can stain teeth. And the dulling effects of both aging and smoking are easy to see.
Fortunately, tooth whitening enables us to significantly brighten your smile, often times in just one visit. The advantages are excellent:
- Significant whitening results in just one visit
- Long lasting
- Low sensitivity
- Proven safe

Teeth Whitening Advantages:
Modern tooth whitening systems are highly effective and have dramatic results. Many celebrities consistently whiten their teeth to improve their appearance.
Teeth Whitening Disadvantages:
Occasionally, patients may experience some gum or tooth sensitivity when using their trays. These symptoms subside when whitening is discontinued for several days.
Alternatives to Teeth Whitening:
Plastic whitening trays will be made from models of your teeth. You will then place a special whitening gel in each tray and wear the trays in your mouth for several hours per day. (Many patients wear their trays after dinner and before bed, or at bedtime). A significant change in tooth color is usually seen in just a few weeks.
Accelerated whitening is another option for some patients. This process can result in whiter, brighter teeth in just one office visit. Please consult with the doctor to see if this procedure may work for you.
Occasionally, teeth may be stained in a way that limits the effectiveness of tooth whitening. In those instances, porcelain veneers or crowns are an excellent alternative.
