Teeth whitening or bleaching, is the procedure of lightening the shade of your teeth, for that Hollywood-white smile!
There are 2 options for whitening of your teeth.
At-Home Whitening involves custom-made bleaching trays, and syringes of our unique bleaching gel. At-home tooth whitening involves two short office visits. The first one is for taking impressions for the custom-fabricated trays, and the second one to pick up the trays, gel. One needs to wear the gel-containing trays only for two or more hours per day for two weeks.
In-Office Whitening is an hour appointment. Our specialist may first clean your teeth to remove any buildup that could interfere with your results. Your gums and the soft tissues of your mouth will then be protected before the peroixde gel is painted onto your teeth. It will be activated with a special light, which will break the peroxide down into oxygen, and send it deep into the enamel and dentin of your teeth.
You can keep your teeth looking whiter and brighter by maintaining good dental hygiene after your treatment. Brush your teeth after meals and floss every day. Visit our specialist at least every six months. Limit staining foods, beverages and lifestyle habits in order to avoid re-staining your newly whitened teeth*.

The removal of the tartar around your teeth is by a process known as scaling and polishing. In this treatment, an ultrasonic instrument is held against the tooth to dislodge the deposits. The duration of treatment depends on the extent and tenacity of the deposits on your teeth. It can be long and uncomfortable if you have not had scaling for some time. The goal of a healthy mouth is for all the teeth to be free of deposits and bleeding.
When we receive your request for an appointment, we will confirm your appointment by telephone.
