Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is faster, more effective, and longer lasting than treatments you find over the counter. As we age, our teeth darken over time. We can brighten your teeth by five to ten shades using our office whitening techniques, but maintaining good oral hygiene and steering away from certain foods and beverages will help keep any future whitening services to a minimum.


Post-procedure Care

Whitening typically makes teeth sensitive being that acid is active component that whitens teeth. The sensitivity typically only lasts for a day or so and can be combated by using daily fluoride treatments. "Touch-up" whitening with likely be needed in the future when the teeth dull down and do not appear as white as they were after the initial whitening treatment.
