Teeth Whitening - Turn That Smile Up A Notch

     Thinking about turning your smile up a notch with a professional teeth whitening treatment?  Teeth whitening is quick easy and painless.  It takes just 30 minutes to an hour to get results, however sometimes it can take multiple applications to get the results you desire.
     Custom trays are made here in our office for you to take home.  You can whiten your teeth in the privacy of your home any time you wish!
     Keep in mind, not everyone is an ideal candidate.  If you want to whiten your teeth, the best place to start is with a healthy mouth.  Tooth decay, sensitive or cracked teeth, infections or periodontal (gum) problems should be diagnosed and treated before any tooth whitening procedure.  Otherwise you could experience discomfort.  The whitening process may aggravate existing problems, or the whitening process simply may not be for you.
     Rather than heading to the local cosmetic counter or shopping mall in search of tooth whiteners, start with a dental check up.  I can evaluate, diagnose and treat any pressing oral health conditions and advise you about different options to safely and effectively whiten your teeth.  I can also determine whether whitening will work for you.  When I diagnose the cause of the discoloration - injury, stains from food or tobacco, antibiotic treatment as a child or other causes - a suitable tooth whitening method or product can be selected.  The diagnosis is important; otherwise you could be wasting time and money because whitening treatments work only on natural tooth enamel, not on crowns, veneers, bonding materials or tooth colored fillings. 
     The whitening treatment works best with yellowish teeth, grayish shades of discoloration may not respond as well to teeth whitening. 
     Many tooth whiteners are advertised on Web sites, television infomercials and the radio, as well as in magazines and newspapers.  The American Dental Association is concerned about the safety of tooth whitening chemicals and procedures that are performed without the care or supervision of your dentist.  If the chemicals used to whiten teeth are not applied properly, they could damage soft and hard tissues in the mouth.
     We invite you to mention this website when you come in to our office and we will provide you with a Free Teeth Whitening evaluation and 25% off your Teeth Whitening!  Now that's something to smile about!
