Illuminate Your Smile

Teeth Whitening

A number of factors determine the color of your teeth —genetics, age, diet, medications, and hygiene habits, just to name a few. Yellow, stained, or discolored teeth can prematurely age a person and alter self-confidence. We have two solutions that can brighten your smile up to ten shades: safe and effective in-office teeth whitening treatments or take-home trays.

Advantages of Professional Whitening

The American Dental Association highly recommends teeth whitening under the supervision of a trained general dentist or cosmetic dentist such as Dr. Rodgers or Dr. Hughes. Why? A dentist will check you for tooth decay and gum disease before applying the teeth whitening solution. Additionally, professional teeth whitening eliminates potential issues like spotting and over-bleaching that can occur with over-the-counter products.

We offer two convenient teeth whitening options:

  • In-office treatments. With this option, we activate a professional-strength teeth whitening solution, and in less than an hour, your teeth will be up to ten shades whiter!
  • Take-home treatments. If you’d prefer to whiten your teeth at home, we can customize trays to fit snugly over your teeth. Simply fill the trays with the professional-grade teeth whitening solution we provide, then wear them as directed until your teeth reach your desired level of whiteness. Treatment time is usually one to two weeks.

Both are great options depending on your needs. We can also combine in-office teeth whitening with at-home touch ups for long-lasting results.
