Keeping our teeth their whitest is a lot harder than it sounds. With all the coffee, wine, other foods and smoking that have the ability to stain our teeth on a daily basis, even proper maintenance sometimes leaves them a little lackluster. Teeth whitening is an excellent way to restore the natural color of your teeth or even make them whiter than your natural color if you so choose.

We utilize a tray whitening system to accomplish the whitening of the teeth. Tray whitening is completed in two steps. The first step is to make impressions of the teeth. With these impressions, we can craft custom whitening trays that can be used over and over.

The whitening gel is placed in the custom trays, and the trays are carefully inserted over the teeth. Patients are advised to wear the gel laden trays for about one hour a day for a period of 5-7 days. This method usually results in a whiter smile of 4-8 shades.
