Do you like the overall shape and size of your teeth but wish they looked whiter or brighter? For many people, teeth do not need permanent dental restorations to look better. They may only need to be whitened and brightened to have a fresh new look. A simple solution is teeth bleaching. Over-the-counter bleaching products are available but have very limited ability to whiten teeth. For the most efficacious and safest way to bleach your teeth, you should consider professional teeth whitening services.
There are two ways to professionally bleach and lighten your teeth. One method is with an in-office bleaching system. During this procedure your teeth are isolated and a strong bleaching agent is applied to the outer surfaces of your teeth. Your teeth are then placed under a powerful light source that activates the bleaching agent. You will have a brighter smile in about one hour.

A second technique for teeth whitening is performed by creating a thin, soft, custom tray that fits over your teeth. This is called a "bleaching tray." A bleaching gel is placed inside the tray, and the tray is worn for a few hours each day or night in the comfort of your home. The maximum benefit from this technique will be seen in two to four weeks.
