Testimonials

I have taken my children to several dental providers trying to find someone as great as this office! My kids love to go there, and I feel comfortable going myself. I have sent several of my friends there and not heard a complaint.

Teeth Whitening

Dental bleaching, also known as teeth whitening, is a common procedure in dentistry.  As a person ages the adult teeth often become darker due to changes in the mineral structure of the tooth. Teeth can also become stained by bacterial pigments, certain foods or drinks, tobacco, or some medications. Get more confidence in your smile because now you can have the bright smile you have always wanted!

We have two whitening systems available to our patients based upon need and desired results. Please talk with our Doctors or Dental professionals to see what is best for you!

Teeth whitening typically involves having  impressions made of ones teeth in order to fabricate the custom fit bleaching trays.  A bleaching material obtained from the dental office is then placed in the trays and the trays are worn for a prescribed length of time.   We also have an “in office” procedure that has proven to be fast, easy, and affordable.

The effects of bleaching can last for several months, but may vary depending on the lifestyle of the patient. Factors that decrease whitening include smoking and the ingestion of dark colored liquids like coffee, tea and red wine.  If heavy staining or tetracycline damage is present on a patient’s teeth, and whitening is ineffective, there are other procedures for whitening teeth such as veneers or crowns.
