After you are comfortable in the chair we will begin by placing a lip retractor and lip barrier. Next we will polish if needed to remove surface stains. After polishing we will place a light cured protective coat on your gums to isolate them from the whitening solution. We will then place the whitening solution. Most appointments take anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half. 

How do I know if I am a good candidate for whitening? 

Whitening has the best results on teeth that have had no facial (front side of the tooth) or total restorations. Dental materials such as composite resin, crowns, veneers, and implants do not respond to whitening. 

Will I be sensitive after my whitening session? 

Sensitivity is common after whitening treatments. We offer up to 3 sessions in one appointment. After each session we work with you to evaluate whether or not you may need an additional session. We strive to make your experience as comfortable as possible. Though we do our best to mitigate the chance of you experiencing sensitivity, everyone responds differently.  

How white will my teeth get?

Everyone's teeth respond a little differently. Depending on level of stain, age, enamel density, gum recession, frequency of whitening, etc... whitening results can vary from person to person. If you have a history of sensitivity we recommend that you consult with you Dentist before whitening. 

Do I need to consult with my Dentist before whitening?

YES. We strongly recommend that you consult with your Dentist before whitening your teeth. We also require you to have seen your dentist at least once in the last year. We stand behind the importance of regular dental visits. If you don't have a dentist we can refer you to our partnering dentist.
