Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with simply bleaching. Dental bleaching can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth.
In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low-cost of bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a try.
With any bleaching, it is recommended to incorporate de-sensitizing toothpaste and fluoride mouth rinse in your home care.

I want to bleach my teeth, what do you recommend?
Everyone’s teeth respond differently to bleaching. It is important to determine if your teeth will respond to bleaching before making a large investment.
Custom Trays with dental bleach is a great option for patients who do not like whitening strips or the length of time required for results. Trays are made custom to you and are more comfortable and easier to wear. The dental bleach, only sold in dental offices, also comes in a higher concentration than you are able to purchase over the counter, which may result in a whiter, brighter smile in a shorter period of time.
How do I get custom trays made?
Its Easy!!! We take impressions of your teeth and in only a day or two your custom bleaching trays will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you place into the trays and wear (follow instructions provided). When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile.
I don’t want to wear trays, can I get In-Office Bleaching?
Yes! It is important to know, even if you get in office bleaching, take home trays are still recommended to get the full effect and best results. It is also important to try home bleaching in some form prior to office bleaching in order to ensure your teeth will respond to bleach and NOT become sensitive. If you find that your teeth respond well to bleach, you experienced little to no sensitivity and you are not interested in wearing trays, please contact our office to discuss in office bleaching.
