Questions About Whitening

Question: How does teeth whitening work?

Answer: To whiten teeth, we use a bleaching gel. It is formulated to penetrate your teeth and lift discoloration for excellent stain-fighting abilities.

Question: Can you address discoloration from staining drinks and foods only?

Answer: We can address a wide variety of stains from multiple causes because we use a system formulated for extreme whitening power. Our system can address stains that form as a result of medication side effects, certain staining agents like coffee or tobacco, or the natural change in color that results from aging.

Question: Will my teeth hurt afterwards?

Answer: We have carefully selected a teeth whitening system that yields beautiful results while protecting your teeth. You can expect your teeth to remain healthy, while special ingredients protect your smile from sensitivity.
