Bleaching teeth is the process of lightening the color of the teeth.

Our office has different types of whitening:

  1. Custom Home System*- is when a patient wear custom-fitted bleaching trays with whitening gel that is concentrated for one to four hours each day or as instructed. The best result is can range between ten to fourteen days of the same process.

  2. One-Hour System*- is when a patient bleach his/her teeth in-office for one hour.

Generally, bleaching is successful in at least 90% of patients, though it may not be an option for everyone. Consider bleaching if your teeth are darkened from age, coffee, tea, wine, acidic foods, and smoking. However, gray stains caused by tetracycline medicines do not get a dramatic result. Bleaching is discouraged if you have very sensitive teeth, periodontal disease, or teeth with worn enamel.

*Tooth color fillings, crowns, veneers, and dentures will not whiten.
