Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening is a very popular procedure in cosmetic dentistry. It is one the fastest and easiest ways to improve your appearance and put more sparkle in your smile.

Teeth whitening can be done in one of two different ways

  1. The in-office procedure uses a laser bleaching light, and can be completed in the dental office in about 1-hour. This method provides a rapid bleach effect but is short acting.
  2. The at-home bleaching procedure, involves the fabrication of custom bleaching trays, and takes longer but provides a longer lasting bleaching result. Often 6 months or more without needing to touch-up. At Convent Glen dental we believe the take home method provides superior results and is safer for the teeth and gums. Teeth whitening only affects natural teeth and will not alter the shade of tooth colored filling or crowns. These may need to be replaced following the whitening to match the lighter shade of the whitened teeth.
