WHITENING - BLEACHING
WHITENING - BLEACHING is the procedure of making teeth whiter, and therefore more attractive. In office bleaching, Custom tray whitening, and professional strength white strips.

In office bleaching involves the careful application of professional strength carbamide peroxide and a desensitizer to the teeth. A special light is used to activate the gel and provide superior whitening power to other methods. This process takes about 90 minutes to complete and can whiten teeth up to 10 shades. Custom bleaching trays are then fabricated for home use to whiten more or for maintenance of the new brilliant color.

The tray method involves having impressions taken from which laboratory fabricated custom vinyl trays are made. A carbamide peroxide gel is placed in these trays and the trays with gel are worn for about 3 hours, or overnight. The entire process takes 3-4 weeks of daily use. Three different strengths of gel may be used, however the higher the strength the greater the likelihood of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray method is recommended for badly stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it may take several months of use to see significant color improvement. For maintenance of whitened teeth the trays should be used every several months.

We carry Crest Professional strength white strips. These are more powerful than the ones in retail stores and will whiten in less than half the time.
