Whitening makes it possible to achieve a whiter, brighter smile right here in our office.
It works with a special light after your teeth have been coated with a whitening gel. The light works with the gel to release oxygen. The oxygen penetrates the outer enamel layer and then the dentin layer of the teeth, bleaching away stains and discolored areas.
We isolate the teeth and protect your gums by applying a special protective material to the gum tissue or by placing a rubber dam.
Next, we paint the whitening gel onto your teeth, and while you relax in the chair, we shine a light or laser onto the teeth. We may repeat this cycle several times.
Power whitening is a safe and effective technology that can help give you a beautiful new smile, all in one appointment.
