One way to perk up your smile is to whiten your teeth. Depending on the amount of dental work you’ve had, your mouth’s sensitivity and the color of your teeth, we can suggest the best whitening methods for you:
- Whitening toothpastes. Mild abrasives and other whitening agents can remove minor surface stains.
- Professional bleaching. Usually done in one visit, we apply a bleaching agent to your teeth while shielding your gums to reduce possible irritation. Sometimes special lights are used to enhance the process. Natural teeth can be immediately whitened.
- Home bleaching. A mouth piece containing a peroxide-based whitener is applied to teeth over several days. This method is dentist-prescribed but can be lower cost than in-office treatments.
