Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your current smile.

Having whiter teeth has now become the number-one aesthetic concern of most patients. The most popular method is using a home teeth whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically. Since teeth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match newly bleached teeth.

Teeth whitening is not permanent. A touch up may be needed every few years, and more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea, or wine.

What does teeth whitening involve?

This type of teeth whitening usually requires two visits. At the first appointment, impressions (molds) will be made of your teeth to fabricate custom, clear plastic trays.

At your second appointment, you will try on the trays for a proper fit; adjustments will be made if necessary. The trays are worn with special whitening solution twice a day for 30 minutes up to eight days.

One-hour teeth whitening is not recommended, due to increased tooth sensitivity and a lack of literature to support its benefits.

Sometimes tooth sensitivity can occur during the time you are whitening your teeth, but it will subside shortly after you have stopped whitening.

You will receive care instructions for your teeth and trays, and be encouraged to visit our office for regular check-ups to help maintain a beautiful, healthy, white smile.

Our Happy Patients

"Dr. Patel and his staff are knowledgeable, professional, and absolutely wonderful. As a person who has, for years, experienced anxiety when faced with trips to the dentist, I am delighted to have found this practice. Not only is Dr. Patel personable and likable, he very clearly explains his recommendations and uses up-to-date x-ray and photo technology to show his patients what he sees during his thorough examination."

W. O.

"My dental experience with Dr. Patel has been nothing but amazing. He took time to explain any concerns and questions i had. He actually took time to make me understand the cause of my problem and told me what to do to prevent it from happening again. Most doctors just fix the problem and let you go until it happens again. He is very gentle and knowledgeable. I would absolutely recommend going to Dr. Patel. Going to his office feels like I'm stepping in a spa at first. All the dental anxiety is forgot as soon as i see Dr. Patel's caring personality."

Nirali J.

"I would recommend Dr. Patel (and his staff) to anyone who is looking for a dentist that genuinely cares about their patients. Overall I had a great experience."
