Whitening

Our most successful whitening method is a take-home system that is simple, painless and will give you noticeable improvement in 10-14 days.  Impressions are taken to make custom trays for you to wear with a whitening gel supplied by our office.  This can be worn 30 minutes to 1 hour up to 4 days per week.  Some patients experience sensitivity in their teeth during whitening.  This is normal and a sensitivity toothpaste can help.  The whitening system will only work on natural tooth enamel.  Replacing old crowns or fillings may be necessary to match the newly whitened teeth.  Dr. Campbell or Dr. Dammast will consult with you to determine your best treatment options.

Another option to whiten teeth is a similar tray system with bleaching gel preloaded in a stock tray made to fit most mouths.  The system uses the same gel that can be placed in the custom tray but is less expensive because the trays are not a custom fit.

Our office also provides another whitening option for people who just want a slightly brighter smile.  We offer a professional strength Crest White Strip system that is stronger than those available over-the-counter.  This is ideal for slight touch ups or for teens after braces are removed.
