Bleaching is used to correct discoloring caused by staining, aging, chemical damage, trauma, nerve degeneration, or old restoration. Also it may be caused by consumption of tetracycline or excessive fluoride use.
It's safe, quick, and inexpensive. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much you show when you talk and smile. Just let us know if you would like to begin bleaching. We can make an appointment for you.
An impression is taken to make a specialized custom tray to hold the bleach against the teeth. The material is used anytime during the day for only ONE hour.
The initial bleaching process takes approximately 3 to 4 weeks, and at the end of this time, significant whitening will occur. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile. Bleaching technology allows us to promise improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth, giving you more confidence in your appearance.
