When you first come to our office to ask about teeth whitening, we will walk you through the different methods available and how they work. You can choose between an in-office whitening procedure or a take-home whitening treatment; here’s what sets these options apart.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

From Opalescence and DayWhite take-home whitening systems to Trèswhite disposable whitening trays, we have more than one way to help you brighten your smile in the comfort of your own home. The prescription-strength gels and formulas that these treatments employ are quite effective; as long as you use them every day according to our directions, you can look forward to a significant change in the appearance of your smile.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Many patients favor in-office whitening because it can be completed in just an hour, making it a good fit for anyone who wants to achieve dazzling results as quickly as possible. Our practice favors Glo in-office teeth-whitening, which helps minimize any sensitivity that our patients might experience after their procedure.

Tips for Maintaining Your Brighter Smile

One of the top questions that patients often ask when it comes to teeth whitening is, “How long will it last?” The answer is different for every patient, but one thing that should be emphasized is that the results will last longer if you take certain actions. Here are some recommendations for helping your smile continue to look its best:

  • Take note of any foods or beverages that can cause stains (such as coffee or blueberries) and stay away from them as much as you can.
  • Maintain a clean smile with regular brushing and flossing.
  • Schedule a checkup and cleaning at our office every six months.
  • Follow any recommendations our team gives you for touching up your smile.
