Teeth Whitening Services
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that lightens teeth and helps to remove discoloration and stain. Tooth whitening done in a professional dental setting is a safe, effective way to brighten your smile. It makes you look more youthful, healthy, and is perhaps the most economical cosmetic dental procedure. You can choose to lighten only the upper teeth, or you can choose to lighten both the upper and lower teeth, depending on how much your lower teeth show when you smile or talk.
Custom Bleach Splints
We can create custom bleach splints for your teeth, that bubble out the stains from your enamel in a very short time without altering your tooth structure or disrupting any of your existing dental work. You can continue the treatment until you reach your desired brightness and whiteness of teeth, then have an occasional treatment when needed to maintain your level.
