Bleaching and Teeth Whitening

Bleaching and Teeth Whitening

Tooth whitening or bleaching is an effective way to dramaticallyimprove your smile and overall appearance.  Often patients are astounded by the change in how they look after a simple bleaching process. Dazzling white teeth make you look and feel younger, healthier, and more radiant.  You will be surprised by the number of people who take notice of your new smile.

At Whole Body Dentistry we offer custom fitted bleaching trays for at-home tooth whitening.  We take an impression of your teeth and create bleaching trays that fit comfortably on your teeth for use at home or even at work.  The bleaching trays are typically worn for one to three hours each day for approximately two weeks.

We do not offer in-office tooth whitening because it is more intense and may cause severe prolonged tooth sensitivity. At-home bleaching is a safer, gentler, and more convenient alternative.  Every six to twelve months or whenever bleaching ‘touch-ups’ are desired, you simply put on your bleaching trays for a few hours in the convenience of your home.  While store bought bleaching alternatives are effective, they cannot provide the same degree of whitening and comfort as custom fitted bleaching trays.

Prior to bonding and other cosmetic procedures, we often instruct our patients to bleach their teeth so that the final outcome can be dazzling.
