Teeth whitening can restore your smile.

Before moving ahead with any cosmetic treatments such as teeth whitening, we must make sure there is both a healthy foundation of teeth and gums. In the event that you are experiencing any oral health issues, our team will work to provide general and restorative dentistry treatments first.

The best teeth whitening candidates should:

  • Be at least sixteen years old
  • Not be pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Be free from certain medical conditions such as diabetes
  • Not be allergic to peroxide, the most commonly used bleaching agent in chairside and take-home whitening formulas
  • Be free from periodontal (gum) disease, as whitening could irritate the gums
  • Have no current cavities or exposed roots due to disease or decay
