Teeth Whitening

Our teeth can discolor through the years as our enamel wears down. The wearing down of enamel allows dentin, a yellow color substance that makes the core of our teeth, to show through. This is what gives our teeth a yellowish tint. Teeth whitening helps restore teeth to a shiny white color through the use of bleach.

Teeth whitening method
Teeth whitening trays are made to custom fit your mouth by your dentist for use at home.  You will be given a bleaching gel.  Depending on the strength of the gel, it can be applied for long periods of time. Usually the trays are worn a couple hours a day or overnight for a few days or weeks depending on the product.  It is important to discuss with your dentist if you experience any sensitivity or gum irritation.
