Brighten Your Smile

Hear this text

Dental bleaching, more commonly known as teeth whitening is a very simple procedure that is done to change the color of your natural tooth and is also a great way to enhance those pearly whites of yours.

There are number of ways to whiten your teeth. One of the most popular ways to go about that is by using an at home tooth whitening system that can help whiten your teeth dramatically. The tooth whitening only works on the natural tooth, so it’s very important to evaluate the replacement of any old fillings or crowns. If there are any replacements, those restorations will be done afterwards so they match your freshly whitened teeth.

This type of whitening requires two visits most of the time. At your first appointment, your dentist will have impressions made of your teeth to fabricate custom, clear plastic, trays. Now the second visit is where you’ll be able to try on your custom trays to see if they fit properly, adjustments will be made if needed. The trays are worn with special whitening gel twice a day for 30 minutes to an hour or overnight for a few weeks, depending on the amount of staining or desired level of whitening. If you start experience tooth or gum sensitivity, don’t be worried, it’s completely normal! Your teeth and gums will return to being less sensitive after bleaching treatments have stopped.

Teeth whitening is not a permanent solution. You may need touch-ups every couple years depending on your lifestyle.

What are some reasons for teeth whitening?

  • Fluorosis, which is the inappropriate use of fluoride products such as mouthwashes and toothpaste.
  • Natural aging of the teeth causing enamel to thin.
  • Stained teeth due to medications such as tetracycline and doxycycline.
  • Yellowed, brown stained teeth caused from drinks or tobacco use.

Love Love this office , they do excellent work and make you feel so comfortable. Added bonus if you get a crown they make it in the office that day and you don't have to come back and miss a day off work just to get the crown on , bonus no temporaries to worry about. Angelique Ball
Don't mind coming here at all.......have been a client for many years. Sharon adds a lot of humor during the teeth cleaning procedure, and of course, I can never comment back with instruments in my mouth. This latest visit also allowed me to spend more time there "being crowned".....an easier procedure than in days gone by........ I was out with the permanent crown, rather than a temporary one, so no return visit at another date. Dr. Corley is personable, good at what he does, and very considerate of your comfort.. The entire staff is pleasant, and waiting time is "on time" as they allow that in their scheduling. Kudos!! Sandy Hixon
Sharon is the best! She always make the visit pleasant and fun. We laugh and actually enjoy my time. She also always knows exactly what has been my history and what needs to be done to keep my teeth healthy. Kathy Menger Corley
