Teeth whitening is a non-invasive procedure that removes stains from the teeth. Whitening can be achieved through teeth polishing or teeth bleaching. Teeth polishing is completed by our hygienist at the end of your cleaning and removes stains that have attached to the tooth’s outer surface. However, if stains have become incorporated into the tooth, teeth bleaching using a peroxide-based gel is necessary to remove or lighten these stains.
Teeth Whitening Methods
There are two main ways to achieve a whiter smile: in-office whitening and take-home whitening kits. Our in-office treatments provide safe and quick whitening results. The GLO™️ in-office system creates maximum results (in less than 1 hour!) with minimal side effects. Take-home kits provide a more gradual transformation, while maintaining the same minimal side effects.
Whitening is non-invasive, but can cause dentinal hypersensitivity in some patients. However, this sensitivity resolves quickly and does not damage the enamel or other tooth structures.
