At the office of Dr. Steven G. Berwitz, DMD, we provide teeth whitening solutions to brighten your smile. Teeth whitening may be a great option if you have stained, dull, or discolored teeth. The main causes of stained teeth are genetics, antibiotics, tobacco, and certain foods. As we age, our teeth darken as well.
Dr. Berwitz will explore different whitening options to achieve your desired results. We will evaluate your smile and ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy enough for whitening.
There are a variety of options when looking to brighten your teeth:
Take Home Teeth Whitening Treatment
We offer custom-fitted whitening trays at our dental office. With at-home whitening, results can be noticed right away, but it may take up to a month to see full results. We recommend using custom fitted trays for precise application of the whitening agent. This helps to prevent irritation to the soft tissue (gums).
In-Office Teeth Whitening Treatment
We will apply a whitening agent to your teeth, avoiding your gums and soft tissue. Once applied, a low-intensity laser light will be directed at the teeth to expedite the whitening process. This method will make your teeth 6-10 shades whiter in about an hour.
Our dental team is devoted to helping you achieve and maintain a beautiful and healthy smile. If you are considering teeth whitening, contact us for a consultation. We will recommend a method that is best for your individual needs.
