In-Office Teeth Whitening
In-office teeth whitening is ideal for anyone wanting immediate results. The entire process only takes an hour, so you can fit it in during a break or right after work. First, we apply a protective gel to your gums. Then a light-activated gel is put on your teeth. Finally, we create custom trays for take-home touch-ups. This is quick and provides you with immediate results.
With Opalescence, a custom fit tray is provided to ensure you get the best results possible. This is an effective alternative to in-office whitening that still provides professional results. On top of this, it is both safe and easy to use. Opalescence Go is another over-the-counter teeth whitening alternative but it does not require a tray.
Foods That Whiten Teeth
- Broccoli: broccoli is high in iron which protects your gums and provides protection for your teeth against the enamel-degrading acid that’s produced by bacteria.
- Apples: chewing on apples helps scrub your teeth to get rid of plaque.
- Pineapple: pineapple naturally contains bromelain – which is an enzyme that has anti-inflammatory and cleansing properties.
- Cheese: cheese contains minerals such as calcium and phosphorus, and protein that protects tooth enamel.
