Smile Brightly with Professional Teeth-Whitening
You can control many of the things that cause teeth to stain. For instance, brushing and flossing every day prevents plaque and food particles from hanging around long enough to be noticeable. However, over time, your teeth can still develop stains or lose their bright shine for a number of reasons, including the cumulative effects of food and drink over the years.
In most cases, a professional teeth-whitening treatment can effectively erase your dental stains and return your teeth to their youthful, exuberant appearance. With a choice of whitening treatments designed to fit your busy schedule, Dr. Chen and our team can help you once again smile with confidence.
In the Office
Teeth-whitening is the least invasive cosmetic dental treatment, and works by chemically breaking up and removing stains on the surfaces of your teeth. During your initial consultation, Dr. Chen will inspect your teeth closely to ensure that teeth-whitening is the right option, and then consult with you to determine which whitening system suits you best.
Our take-home teeth-whitening kit comes with a set of custom-designed trays that fit snugly over your teeth, and a supply of professional-strength bleaching gel that you can apply using the trays. Typically, treatment requires that you wear the trays for at least one to two hours a day, though you can choose the time of day that best suits you. After 10-14 days, your teeth will no longer be marred by stains or discoloration, and your smile will be significantly brighter.
In-office teeth-bleaching is a popular procedure that usually takes just over an hour and can be completed during a single visit to our office! We take precautions to ensure that the procedure does not cause tooth sensitivity, and if you wish, you can take a kit home to touch up your smile as needed.
If your teeth’s stains are especially stubborn, underneath the enamel (in the dentin), or an indication of a more serious underlying dental issue (like cavities), then Dr. Chen will recommend a more appropriate cosmetic or restorative treatment option.
