Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening - Commonly referred to as bleaching - has never been faster or easier than it is today. Dental bleaching can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we offer safe methods for creating a beautiful "brilliant" smile. 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. Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they've been dreaming of with our simple "bleaching" procedure. Thanks to a breakthrough technology, we now can offer you 3 proven whitening options:

 

Professional Strength White Strips - These whitening stips are stronger than the strips sold in a retail store.  This option is the weakest of the three and may take longer to achieve the desired white shade.

 

Custom Whitening trays - Dr. Simone will create a custom fit bleaching tray from an impression of the your teeth. The trays will fit securely around each tooth. The professional strength whitening gel is applied in the trays and they are inserted into the mouth for 30 minutes to 1 hour for 5-7 treatments. The whitening gel is offered in different flavors and strengths. The patient will have a whiter and brighter smile in about 1-2 weeks.  This method is the most predictable and commonly used technique to whiten your teeth.

 

Lumi Brite - This method is done in office by Dr. Simone as the bleach is very strong and requires professional application.  Before the bleach is applied to your teeth a protective barrier is placed around you teeth to avoid adversely affecting the sensitvie tissue in your mouth.  Once the barrier is placed the bleach is placed on your teeth for approx 1 hour.  Once the bleach is removed you are able to see the results for yourself.  A great option for the paitent with a busy schedule and does not want to hassel with bleaching trays.
