How do I whiten my smile?
Many patients desire whiter teeth and there are several options for obtaining great results. The first option is whitening strips. Our practice offers prescription strength (not over-the-counter) whitening strips that you place over the front of your top and bottom teeth. These strips are disposable and provide a very good result. The next option is whitening trays and bleach. To utilize this method, our staff will take impressions of your teeth and create a custom tray for you. You then place a small amount of bleach into the tray and place it your mouth for about 30 minutes. The custom trays work especially well, as they are made just for your mouth and allow you to converse and carry on normal activity during the day or night. The third option for a whiter smile is veneers. A veneer is a porcelain overlay that is placed over your natural tooth. The benefit to this method is that you can select the shade you like as well as straighten and perfect your smile at the same time.
