Tooth whitening / bleaching

What Is tooth whitening ?

Tooth whitening is a procedure that lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can significantly improve the appearance of your teeth at much less cost and inconvenience than other techniques. The most common reasons for yellowing or stained teeth are aging, tobacco, tea and coffee, which can all stain the surface of the teeth.

We offer two methods of whitening:

In-office (chairside) whitening
Take home whitening

In-Office Whitening

In-office whitening usually takes between 30 and 90 minutes and can require up to three appointments with Dr. Saroyan. The number of visits required will depend on the type of discoloration and how white you want your teeth to be. A very effective whitening gel is placed on the teeth and a laser is used to enhance the results.

Take Home Whitening

A custom mouthpiece(s) is made for you. At home, you fill the mouthpiece(s) with the whitening gel provided by Dr. Saroyan. Instructions on use will be given during your appointment.

Many people achieve the amount of whitening they want within a week or two, but you may need to wear the mouthpiece for four weeks or longer.There are situations where whitening is not effective and other treatments may be considered. A consultation with Dr. Saroyan will determine if you are a good candidate.
