Teeth Whitening -Brighter Smiles in the North Shore

Having a beautiful smile may be easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they have dreamed of with our simple bleaching procedure. Patients come to Burns Family Dentistry for complex restorative dental care, and tooth whitening is often an important part of the treatment solution. Tooth whitening allows for younger looking teeth and a brighter smile, which always result in greater self confidence. The process is safe and relatively inexpensive.

When Do We Consider Teeth Whitening?

  • removing tooth discoloration
  • achieving a younger looking smile
  • prior to extensive cosmetic work
  • attaining a more uniform tooth shade

How is Tooth Whitening Done?
Take Home Tray Whitening-- Impressions are recorded of your teeth so that we can mold custom whitening trays. These can usually be ready in as little a one day! The trays hold a specialized gel that will lighten discoloration underlying tooth enamel. The trays should be worn for 2 hours per day or overnight for convenience. Tray whitening usually takes 2-4 weeks to achieve the desired result.

To ensure lasting results we suggest limiting liquids that can stain teeth, such as coffee or wine, while whitening. A temporary side effect of tooth whitening in some people is tooth sensitivity. This sensitivity is reversible and we have many different treatment options to ensure that sensitivity will be kept to a minimum.
