One of the most popular and cost effective ways to dramatically improve your smile is with teeth whitening. Teeth bleaching can produce esthetic results with minimum effort or investment. Many factors contribute to yellow, brown, or gray stains on the teeth, most commonly, things we eat and drink, medications, tobacco use, older restorations, and the natural aging process. While there are many causes of discoloration and many different forms of teeth whitening, Dr. Mauck and Dr. Ricci will talk with you about your goals to create a tailored whitening plan that will meet your individual needs. One all-inclusive plan for teeth whitening is our Whitening For Life Program.

Take home whitening trays – One of the most common professional whitening options is with custom whitening trays that you fill with a whitening gel in the comfort of your own home. This offers flexibility in your time and level of whiteness. Often times several applications over the course of a couple of weeks are needed to achieve the initial level of whiteness that is desired. Then touch up treatments can be used to maintain the desired appearance.
In-Office Whitening – This technique offers the fastest and most powerful whitening solution available. Due to the nature of this procedure a more concentrated peroxide gel is applied to the teeth and activated to ensure the most dramatic results. This process can take over an hour, but the results are obvious immediately.
Other whitening options are available over the counter. These lower concentrations of bleaching agents are unable to produce the type of results as these professional methods and are often less comfortable due to their ill-fitting nature. If you have questions about a whiter smile, ask Dr. Mauck and Dr. Ricci if they can create a custom tailored whitening plan to suit your needs.
