Teeth Whitening

Have you ever looked in the mirror and noticed that your teeth are yellow and stained or your smile just isn’t as bright as you’d like it to be? You’ll be happy to know that there is a simple and affordable way to improve the appearance of your smile. Teeth whitening is an easy, cost-effective way to get the vibrant white smile you have always dreamed of!

teeth whiteningDr. Paul Perez and Dr. Elizabeth Crapanzano at Avenue Family Dentistry can create a gorgeous result in just one office visit. Or, for those patients who would prefer to handle the whitening themselves in the privacy of their own home, we also offer at-home whitening. Although in-office whitening provides a quicker result, our at-home whitening kits are just as effective.

How Does the Whitening Process Work?

The whitening process is a pretty simple one. When you come in for your in-office treatment, Dr. Perez or Dr. Crapanzano will use a professional strength whitening gel that contains hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. We will apply the whitening gel to your teeth, while protecting your gums, and a light will be used to help activate the gel. The procedure takes just about an hour, but the result will be amazing. Years of staining and discoloration will vanish from your teeth, leaving you with a bright, younger looking smile.

Our at-home teeth whitening kit takes a bit longer, but the results are just as dramatic. We will provide you with a kit that includes the gel and your custom trays, along with instructions to use the kit—usually several days in a row and over a period of weeks. You will be amazed at how white your smile becomes! You can keep your custom whitening trays for future touch-ups so you always look your best.

There are several advantages to this noninvasive, affordable cosmetic dentistry procedure. Here are just a few of them:

  1. It’s a huge confidence booster. Our smile is often the first thing people notice about us. When we have a smile that is its brightest white, that reflects in all that we do and in how we feel about ourselves.
  2. It can be a big motivator in taking good care of our dental health. Flossing and brushing is part of good follow-up care for the teeth whitening procedure.
  3. It’s a safe, easy, and convenient way to improve the look of our smile. Teeth whitening is probably the easiest, most cost-effective, pain-free cosmetic dentistry treatment around. It leads to great results while leaving the structure of the tooth completely unchanged.
