Emergency Dentistry, Root Canals, and Extractions

If your mouth and teeth are generally healthy, teeth whitening will likely be completely safe for you. Professional teeth whitening is an affordable and simple way to spruce up your smile and eliminate the stains that have collected for years.

We will evaluate your gums and look for any signs of recession that might make your teeth sensitive during whitening. Recession does not mean that you cannot whiten your teeth, just that we may recommend desensitizers or a fluoride application to protect exposed roots.

Zoom! whitening is done using 10% carbamide peroxide, and studies showed no effect on the mineral content of teeth. Professionally done teeth whitening does not cause any permanent damage to your teeth. 

Over-the-counter whitening products can actually damage teeth because they often contain abrasive materials that scratch away at enamel with permanent repercussions. They also provide unpredictable results that look uneven or blotchy.

Our custom teeth whitening system will give you brilliant results in just a couple of weeks. For faster results, we offer in-office teeth whitening to jump-start the process.
