Are you always dreaming of achieving that Hollywood-style smile? We can help you do so through professional whitening procedures. Most whitening is done through the use of dental bleach. Dental bleach contains materials that remove concentrated stains, so it’s awesome for brightening chompers.

During our in-office whitening treatments, Dr. Yelena Mullakandova carefully applies a prescription-strength bleach to patients’ chompers before sealing the gel with a special light; this treatment is quick enough to be completed in only one visit. There are also home whitening treatments made possible through the use of dental trays; this procedure typically takes some weeks to complete.

Some patients report minor sensitivity after receiving teeth whitening. If you notice any sensitivity after whitening, don’t worry: this is not out of the ordinary. Your pearly whites may need some time to heal from the bleaching, so deliberate on using a sensitivity toothpaste while you wait. If you are using whitening trays and seeing intense sensitivity, please stop the treatment and give us a call.

Keeping your chompers white can be complicated, but you can always count on brushing two times per day and flossing once per day to help you out. You can also avoid teeth-staining foods, use straws when you drink dark drinks, brush with whitening toothpaste and visit our office for professional cleanings regularly.
