Teeth Whitening at Nelson Dental Avenue


Teeth Whitening

One of the quickest, easiest and safest ways to improve your smile is to have your teeth whitened.

After a comprehensive dental examination, we can help you brighten that smile with various options for "bleaching" the teeth.

The simplest approach is to provide you with a professional home bleaching kit. A custom fitting tray is made for your teeth and you can bleach your teeth until they are as white as you want them to be. As long as the trays fit, you can use them over and over again!

This option takes about a week to see great results, and can last for months, depending on what you eat, drink or smoke.

For those of you who need a quick whitening (say you have a photoshoot TOMORROW), we can whiten your teeth in an hour in the office. The results are quick and fast....but.....you may end up with tooth sensitivity that can linger a couple of weeks.  

I usually just tell people to get the home trays because they can balance how white the teeth get to how sensitive the teeth get, and after a couple of months the results are the same as in office bleaching.

The most important thing is to make sure that the teeth are healthy before starting. You aren't going to paint a rusty chair, or plant your garden in a bunch of weeds now are you?
