Teeth Whitening

Hear this text

One of the primary goals of many patients is to have whiter teeth. Teeth can be discolored for a number of reasons – genetics, smoking, food, coffee, and even some types of medicine. While there are many different causes of tooth discoloration, there are also many different methods to whiten discolored teeth.

Many patients consider over the counter tooth whitening procedures. These can include whitening strips, paint on tooth gel, mouth trays with gel, and even whitening toothpaste. Whitening toothpastes typically use abrasives to remove surface stains, and are capable of whitening typically one shade. Whitening strips and gels typically contain hydrogen peroxide, a bleach-like agent that chemically lightens the tooth color. Strips and gels often show results in as few as a few days, but can take months of routine use to obtain the final result, typically a few shades.

Your dentist can perform teeth whitening using a much stronger gel, often with a light-activated agent. Because the dentist is able to protect the rest of the mouth, including the gums and tongue, a significantly stronger formula can be used, resulting in eight to ten shades of lightening in a single application.

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" 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
