Teeth Whitening


Unlike many other dental issues, teeth stains and discoloration can occur even in light of excellent dental hygiene and care. Because they can develop from necessary things, like the foods and beverages you consume, teeth stains are not always preventable. However, in most cases, you can erase stains and restore your smile’s youthful appearance conveniently with a professional teeth whitening treatment.

What is Professional Teeth Whitening?

Though the name of the treatment is self-descriptive, teeth whitening can be applied with a variety of methods, including the use of over-the-counter (OTC) products that claim to offer amazing results from home. Though convenient, OTC whiteners are extensively diluted, and may offer little or no satisfactory results. Professional teeth whitening describes the application of a highly-potent, but safe, bleaching agent, either from the comfort of your own home or during a single visit to our office.

We can custom-design a set of whitening trays that rest comfortably over your teeth, and that allow you to apply the bleaching agent evenly for a couple of hours each day. In as little as two weeks, professional teeth whitening can erase teeth stains and brighten your smile up to 10 shades. Or, if you prefer immediate results, we can schedule an in-office whitening treatment that can achieve similar results in as little as an hour.

What if Teeth Whitening Isn’t Enough?

Before prescribing a professional teeth whitening treatment, Dr. Cornelius will perform a thorough examination to determine the exact nature of your teeth stains. If stains originate from within the tooth, or if the discoloration indicates a tooth infection or internal damage, then you might require a more comprehensive solution, such as tooth bonding/contouring or porcelain veneers.
