In-Practice Teeth Whitening
While store bought tooth whitening products promise dramatic results, they are typically unable to deliver on their promises. Our team is able to offer more predictable smile brightening solutions with professional in-office and at-home teeth whitening. In-office whitening is a fast, effective way to brighten smiles up to ten shades in about an hour making it the ideal option for patients who need fast results. We protect soft tissue and apply a coat of whitening gel to teeth. At fifteen minute intervals, we check results, and reapply as necessary.
At-Home Tooth Whitening
Unlike store bought at-home whitening kits that use an ineffectively low dose of active whitening agents and are unable to seal out neutralizing saliva, our professional at-home whitening kits combine professional-grade whitening gel with custom application trays to ensure predictable results up to ten shades brighter over the course of two weeks of consistent treatment. Patients who prefer more gradual results, have sensitive teeth, or want to touch up in-office whitening may prefer an at-home whitening kit.
One of the most popular cosmetic dentistry solutions available, porcelain veneers conceal any number of smile flaws including chips, cracks, and stains transforming smiles quickly and comfortably. Veneers are thin sheaths of dental grade porcelain that are affixed to the fronts of teeth perfecting smiles. The process is simple, but typically requires two visits to complete. A small amount of tooth enamel is removed to allow the veneer to blend seamlessly into the natural smile line. Then, a series of dental impressions are captured that will be used by our dental lab to craft a custom veneer. We place a temporary veneer, and patients return to exchange the temporary for the permanent solution.
