Teeth Whitening

One of the easiest ways to dramatically improve your smile is professional tooth whitening. At our office, patients can have their smiles lightened by several shades with custom bleaching trays or 1 hour in-office whitening with our Opalescence tooth whitening system. We provide these bleaching treatments alone or as a complement to Invisalign (virtually invisible braces),  porcelain veneers and other cosmetic dentistry treatments as part of a smile makeover. The team at the practice of  Trang T. Chesler, DDS can provide the tooth whitening method that will best suit your needs and give you the smile you deserve.

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes teeth yellow?

Teeth can either have extrinsic stains or intrinsic stains. Extrinsic stains are present on the surface of the tooth and are usually caused by consuming heavily pigmented foods and drinks, such as blueberries, curries, carrots, coffee, wine, or colas, or by tobacco use. Intrinsic stains are present inside the tooth and are more difficult to remove.

Does teeth whitening work?

Professional teeth whitening can safely remove surface stains to brighten your smile. With products like Opalescence tooth whitening system, we can lighten your teeth 10 to 12 shades to give you a more youthful appearance. Keep your smile white with good oral hygiene, regular dental checkups, and by limiting the consumption of staining food and drinks.

What makes professional kits better?

The kits you buy at the drug store are not nearly as strong as professional-grade whitening kits. They are also more likely to irritate the soft tissues in your mouth because they are not custom fitted to your teeth.
