Whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stained, dull or discolored teeth. A teenagers's smile is much easier to whiten then that of an adult. Teeth become harder to bleach as the person gets older. This is primarily due to the fact that as we age, debris and stain particles pack more and more firmly into the tooth layers.

Not all whitening techniques are the same. One of the prime considerations in the selection of a particular technique is to insure that the process includes removing the embedded material so that the bleach can penetrate into and whiten the actual tooth structure. Many techniques essentially lighten the stain particles in the teeth and as they reabsorb new stain, the whitening is gradually lost.

We use OPALESCENCE Whitening products on our patients. For those who prefer a quick touchup we explain and dispense at-home products which are convenient and simple to use. The at home system is used daily for one week. For those who prefer a more intense whitening we can apply more concentrated professional gels to their teeth that is completed in the office.
