Tooth whitening, which is also known as bleaching, is the fastest, safest, and easiest way to improve a patient’s smile. Teeth can become discolored due to staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the ideal option, but our dentists are happy to discuss the best plan for each individual patient based upon the desired goal. If tooth whitening is recommended, our patients can personally decide which method they would prefer. Our office offers custom trays for application of professional strength bleaching agents to be worn at home as well as an in-office process that whitens teeth in only one hour. Patients that choose to have the immediate results of the one-hour whitening are also given custom trays and topical bleaching agents to “touch-up” as desired at home.
