A beautiful, healthy smile is an important feature to have. There are many reasons why our teeth become discoloured such as foods, drinking, smoking, age and more.
Teeth whitening is the process of bleaching your teeth in order to make them whiter. More people today are choosing teeth whitening procedures to give them a bright and confident smile.
Teeth Whitening with the help of our dental professionals is considered safe and effective.
- Your teeth must be examined by one of our Dentists to ensure that you are cavity free and that your gums are healthy.
- An impression of your teeth will be taken and used to create custom fit mouth trays prepared individually for each patient.
- You will return to our office to receive your custom trays and whitening kit as well as home instructions. The whitening gel is placed in the trays and worn on average for a couple of hours each day over the course of approximately two weeks for best results. Over time, your can use the remainder of your whitening gel to “touch up” as desired.
Please ask us about tooth whitening on your next visit to find out if this procedure is for you.

Get rid of years of coffee stains and discoloration in as little as one hour! Here at Dental Studio, we use a bleaching process called Zoom.
Zoom is enamel-safe and approved by federal health associations. For in-office whitening, your dentist will provide protection for your gums and lips to ensure the gel stays on your teeth. The hydrogen peroxide-based gel is applied to the teeth which are then exposed to LED blue light for 15 minutes. Afterward, your teeth will be cleaned, and the gel will be reapplied twice more for a total of three 15-minute light sessions. Afterward, your dentist will apply a fluoride paste for up to 10 minutes to reduce sensitivity.
Our offices can also supply you with take-home custom trays for your whitening kit. You can place the gel into your trays and wear them for a few hours each day. After two weeks, you should notice a significantly brighter smile!
Veneers are strong thin pieces of ceramic or resin material that are bonded to the teeth, cosmetically giving a whiter brighter smile. They are used to repair chips or cracks, hide discolored teeth, change the shape of teeth and may help in closing gaps between teeth. Very little tooth structure is removed to prepare the teeth for veneers as they cover only the front of the tooth and are often an alternative to crowns. Though not always the best solution for some, this may be your solution to a bright new smile.
Teeth that need to be restored can be fixed with a composite or “white” resin rather than silver amalgam as usually done in the past. Tooth colored composite resin (plastic) is bonded to decayed, chipped, fractured or discolored teeth. Tooth gaps can also be closed using a composite resin material.
