There are many treatments for discolored teeth. While a thorough teeth cleaning and polishing help to remove most surface stains, if stains or discolorations still exist, bleaching is an option.
Bleaching (teeth whitening) can be accomplished by either bleaching at your home or during a visit at our office. Home bleaching utilizes custom made bleaching trays and whitening gel that is applied into the trays and used at home.
The "in office" procedure uses a more concentrated formula of whitening agent. This procedure can be done in 20 minute increments, with as many as 3 increments per appointment. Most patients who opt for in office whitening also have custom bleaching trays to take home. This helps maintain the result that was achieved during the chairside whitening at the office. With the "at home" procedure, a bleaching compound is placed in the trays and worn at night for up to 2 weeks.
Our hygienists are dedicated and trained to show you how to use these products and to remove as many stains and discolorations as possible.
