Teeth Whitening In One Hour
Our in-office treatment can remove unsightly teeth stains in as little as one to two hours. We begin by applying a protective covering to your lips and gums. Next, we apply a powerful bleaching gel. Since the gel is chemically activated, there is no need to sit under a powerful light or a heat source, making this a much more comfortable solution to discoloration. The gel then breaks up and removes stains, while also limiting the risk of tooth sensitivity following treatment, especially when compared to over-the-counter strips!
The Causes of Discoloration
But why do our teeth become stained? A number of factors could impact the brightness of our teeth. For example, plaque buildup that accumulates due to the foods we eat and our oral hygiene practices could make stains more visible. Beverages with tannins and dark pigments, like soda, coffee, red wine, and tea, could also discolor our smiles. Foods high in sugar and starch promote plaque buildup, and again, discoloration. If you smoke cigarettes or use other tobacco products, you could end up with a discolored smile, as well as a higher risk of cancer.
Keeping Smiles Bright
Now that you know many of the common causes of discoloration, let’s talk about what you can do to help your new stunning results last much longer. First, start your day by brushing your teeth for two minutes with a fluoride toothpaste, and then do the same before bed. You also need to floss thoroughly every evening to remove trapped food particles your toothbrush alone cannot. We also urge a healthier diet and more water. If you use tobacco products, quit right away. With these steps, you can not only keep your smile bright, but you also lower the risk of tooth decay and gum disease in the process.

We’re ready to see you and help you obtain your best smile!
