Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening

Whitening your teeth is safe and easy. Many patients want to have a brighter smile or to correct discoloration that happens over time. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Let the office know if you’d like to consider professional whitening, and we can set up an appointment. 

Dental bleaching can be used to correct tooth discoloration.  Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a solid try.

Tooth whitening has numerous benefits such as:

  • Corrects brown, yellow, and spotted tooth staining
  • Works on people of any age
  • Is a near-permanent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and bringing a smile alive

How is teeth whitening done?

An impression is taken to make a specialized “mouthguard” or “stent” to hold the bleach against the teeth. In only a day or two your custom bleach splints will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear splints. The material is used each night for about 30 minutes for a week or two, and at the end of this time, significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology allows us to promise improvements in yellowing, aging, or stained teeth.

EPIC Laser Whitening 

A hydrogen peroxide-based gel is applied to the teeth and activated by the laser. If you tend to have sensitive teeth you can let your dentist know and they can control the level of laser energy that’s delivered to make the experience more pleasant. The EPIC treatment process lightens dark, yellowed, or discolored enamel caused by tobacco, food, and beverages such as tea, coffee, and red wine. Results are noticeable immediately after the procedure. 

Convenient for your time and schedule

EPIC is an affordable investment in the beauty of your teeth and the overall sense of well-being. For those with time constraints, EPIC is the ideal option. The laser whitening procedure is so short, only 20 minutes, which means less time is spent driving back and forth to the dentist’s office. It also means that less time will be spent away from work and less time will be spent sitting in the dental chair resulting in a more comfortable experience. 

No longer is there a need to squeeze a lengthy appointment into your schedule or deal with the hassle of inconvenient, time-consuming nightly trays to achieve results. What is your time worth?
