This Can Be Done Professionally In Our Office Or At Home

We understand that our patients have different needs, which is why we offer several cosmetic treatment options. Our whitening services can be done in our office in under an hour, or with an at home kit over the span of a few weeks. These methods are safer than store bought products you can buy at your local grocery store. Your dentist will examine your smile to ensure this method is right for you. If done in the office, the bleaching agent will be applied to your teeth and stimulated with a light. This can yield vibrant results in as little as one hour. If done at home, we will create a personalized kit that you can apply each day at your convenience.

It Can Help You Look Younger And Feel More Confident

Having a whiter and brighter smile has several benefits. You may notice that you feel more confident after having stains removed from your teeth. This can help you appear more confident and professional to others. Breaking down the stains on your enamel can also help you appear younger. Having this treatment done may also motivate you to take better care of your pearly whites. You will need to be in good oral health before any cosmetic treatment. After this treatment is done, you may feel motivated to take better care of your pearly whites to keep the results for as long as possible.

Continue Your Regular Oral Hygiene Routine

You may notice that your teeth look brighter, whiter, and can even appear healthier. However, it’s important that you continue to brush and floss as usual to maintain your oral health. This routine can also help keep your results for as long as possible.

If your teeth do not respond to this treatment, your dentist may recommend alternative cosmetic enhancements such as bonding and contouring or veneers. Like whitening, these treatments can help improve the appearance of your smile. Bonding uses composite resin to disguise the appearance of blemishes or other imperfections. Porcelain veneers are tooth-shaped shells that are placed over the front of your natural teeth to create a more even appearance.
