If you're confident, you smile more. If you smile more, you feel more confident. But what if you don't want to flash your smile because you're embarrassed by yellow teeth?
Sometimes a new smile emerges from the simplest steps. Teeth whitening removes years of dingy stains from your teeth. Coffee, tea, wine, tobacco, and chocolate can all dull white enamel surfaces. A brilliant boost along with some gentle polishing and reshaping of chipped, uneven edges can create an easy transformation. Simple and safe, most patients don't realize how much discoloration embeds into their teeth until they see a new shine emerge.

Professional teeth whitening is effective on the discoloration that results from the consumption of highly pigmented foods and beverages. It can also reverse some of the dullness that comes about as a result of age. However, it does not work on dental fluorosis (white spots on the teeth), nor is it effective at reversing the stains that can result from certain types of medication. If you are suffering from such types of discoloration, ask us about other cosmetic procedures that may be able to give you the bright, confident smile that you deserve. Dental bonding or porcelain veneer may be an excellent choice for your circumstances.
Many OTC whitening options produce mediocre results at best, and they may take several weeks or longer to do so. Professional whitening is much faster. It penetrates deeper into the teeth to break up even deep-set stains, so it can help teeth become truly radiant. Plus, since it is done under the supervision of a skilled dentist, you can be confident that it is safe.

Because this is a purely cosmetic procedure, your dental insurance is highly unlikely to cover it. However, you can get a 15% discount on whitening if you join our in-house membership plan. In general, teeth whitening is one of the most affordable cosmetic dental services.
