Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is faster, more effective, and longer lasting than treatments you find over the counter. As we age, our teeth darken over time. We can brighten your child’s teeth by five to ten shades in a single session, but maintaining good oral hygiene and steering away from certain foods and beverages will help keep any future whitening services to a minimum. We may also prescribe some medication for your child to use at home that helps the whitening process.


Procedure:

  1. Thorough cleansing and polishing of teeth

  2. Application of gum protectant

  3. Application of whitening agent

  4. Whitening agent is laser-activated

  5. Whitening agent is left on teeth for several minutes

  6. Teeth and gums are rinsed


Things to avoid:

  • Tobacco products

  • Coffee and tea

  • Food coloring

  • Any bright-colored drinks
