Whiten Your Smile

Permanent teeth are often darker in shade than primary, or baby, teeth. With the advent of quality tooth whitening systems in the mid 1990’s, people can enjoy the benefits of a dazzling white smile with very little risk.

We make custom fitted trays into which a thick gel containing either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide is placed. These gels have proven over time to be both safe and effective.

This same process can be used to remove stains within the structure of the tooth.

In our office, we use the lowest concentration available and the gels are all neutral pH (neither acidic nor alkaline). If you use the system every night, you should expect to see results in 4 to 6 weeks. When it comes to whitening your teeth, be cautions of marketing gimmicks such as lights and lasers that claim to accelerate the process. Studies have shown that the addition of light to these systems has no effect on their whitening ability. They may have some minor effect on speeding up the process, however the faster you whiten your teeth, the less enduring the effect is so you have to whiten more often. This also comes at a greatly increased cost. When it comes to whitening, low and slow is the most effective and enduring.

Also beware of over the counter systems purchased in stores. These systems are often acidic and produce their effect in part by eroding tooth structure.
