Teeth Whitening

Our teeth can discolor through the years as our enamel wears down. The wearing down of enamel allows dentin, a yellow color substance that makes the core of our teeth, to show through. This is what gives our teeth a yellowish tint. Teeth whitening helps restore teeth to a shiny white color through the use of bleach.

Teeth whitening methods

We recommend one of two options for bleaching your teeth:
     Crest White Strips professional offers 3 weeks of strips that you wear for half an hour, twice a day. They are very effective but only treat the front 6-8 teeth.
     The second method, involves the use of take home whitening kits. Impressions are made of your teeth and custom trays are made for your mouth. The strength of the gel used in these kits is stronger than that used in Crest White Strips. Usually the trays are worn a couple hours a day or overnight for 8days. You can keep your trays forever and purchase bleach refills economically if you need to retreat after a few years.

Its best to consult your dentist to understand which whitening option is best for you.
