How can I whiten my smile?

Generally speaking, teeth can be whitened in two ways.
Bleaching of teeth can be accomplished in the dental office or at home. If the patient chooses 'dental office bleaching', it is usually accomplished in one appointment with light activated bleach. The appointment length is approximately 90 minutes. Some patients choose 'at home' bleaching. This technique requires at least two visits to the dental office and the use of a custom fit dental tray for several weeks.
Either way, bleaching can produce phenomenal results for many people. Call today to see if bleaching will work for you.
Porcelain veneers or crowns:
For severely stained teeth, or dark teeth which have very large discolored fillings, porcelain veneers or crowns may be the treatment of choice. Spectacular smiles can be achieved with porcelain. Not only can you choose how white you want your teeth to be, you can choose the shape of your teeth. Porcelain can also be used to straighten crooked teeth or repair chipped front teeth. Today's porcelain is not only beautiful, but exceptionally strong. Porcelain veneers/crowns produce the most dramatic changes possible in your smile.
