Are you interested in attaining that Hollywood-style smile? We can help you do so through professional whitening treatments. Most whitening is done through the use of dental bleach. Dental bleach contains compounds that remove stains, so it’s great for brightening chompers.

During our in-office whitening treatments, Dr. Jing Yang cautiously applies a prescription-strength bleach to patients’ teeth before sealing the gel with a light; this procedure is quick enough to be completed in one visit. There are also home whitening treatments made possible through the use of dental trays; this service regularly takes a few weeks to complete.

Some patients report slight sensitivity after receiving teeth whitening. If you detect any sensitivity after whitening, don’t worry: this is not atypical. Your chompers may need some time to heal from the bleaching, so deliberate on using a sensitivity toothpaste while you wait. If you are using whitening trays and seeing intense sensitivity, please stop the treatment and call us.

Keeping your chompers white can be difficult, but you can count on brushing twice daily and flossing once a day to help you out. You can also avoid teeth-staining foods, brush with whitening toothpaste and visit our office for professional cleanings regularly.
