Popular Teeth Whitening Treatments

Sometimes, no matter how much care one can give to the dental hygiene, teeth can still have a discolor appearance. Many people opt to do teeth whitening procedures since if teeth don’t look as white as they can be, they will portray a sense of an unhealthy mouth. Some of the reasons why teeth might discolor have to do with the drinks and foods we consume. Daily eating or drinking coffee, wine, soda, tobacco, and such are the most prominent contributors to teeth stain. Teeth whitening is getting more accessible now since these treatments can be performed in a dental office as they can be implemented in your own home.  Therefore, it is essential to search what treatment will work best for you before committing to any.


The BriteSmile in-office whitening system uses a hydrogen peroxide mixture and the power of “cool blue” LED light to whiten your teeth up to eight shades lighter. First, the gum line is protected with an application of vitamin E. Then, the whitening gel is applied to the surface of the teeth. The gel is then exposed to the LED light, and this accelerates the whitening process of the teeth. This procedure is safe and won’t cause damage to your teeth. Also, if you are worried about tooth sensitivity, we can adjust the amount of concentration for your comfort.
