Ask your dentist about whitening options! We offer in-office ZOOM whitening as well as take-home trays. The in-office procedure is about two hours. We isolate your teeth and apply a whitening gel. This will be left on your teeth for 15-minute intervals and it is rinsed away. After about three or four applications, you will notice whiter teeth on the shade guide! Stay away from coffee, wine and any other food or drinks that may stain teeth for the next few days.

 Another option is take-home trays. This involves taking molds of your teeth. Then, that impression is used to create customized trays that you can used to brighten your smile at the convenience of your home! People who are under Invisalign treatment can use the gel in their tray.

In the future, you can purchase additional professional grade whitening gel to keep your smile bright. Patients may experience short-term sensitivity due to the whitening procedure. This will subside in 1-3 days. It is recommended to start using Sensodyne toothpaste one week prior to whitening to reduce sensitivity. Ibuprofen is recommended for people who have very sensitive teeth. Also, you should continue to use Sensodyne for 1 week after the treatment.

First Visit

During the first appointment, we will take preliminary impressions and photos. You can share what you would like to improve and we can help achieve your new smile. We may recommend other procedures prior to veneers in order to achieve the most stable, healthy and esthetic results. The molds will be sent to a lab where a master ceramist will shape your teeth in wax for a beautiful outcome.

 When you return two weeks later, we will anesthetize your teeth and start to conservatively prepare your teeth. The wax-up created be the ceramist will be used for temporary veneers. This allows for a smile trial. Home care and dental hygiene is crucial at this time to make sure your gums stay healthy in order for the subsequent appointments to flow smoothly. If hygiene is neglected, your gums may become inflamed and may necessitate additional appointments.

This visit will be around one week later. You can share your thoughts on the appearance of the temporaries. The doctor will make any adjustment needed so you are satisfied with the look of the restorations. This is the time you can share your thoughts on the shape and appearance of the veneers. Another impression will be made of the final shape that you prefer. Photos will also be taken so we can share this with the lab. While your temporaries are on, the ceramist will make your final veneers to match the contours of your temporaries.

Temporary veneers will be removed and the final veneer will be tried on to make sure it is well adapted to the underlying teeth and to ensure you love the shape and color of the veneers. Then, these will be cemented onto your teeth and adjustments may be made. We may schedule a follow up visit to check the healing of your gums after this appointment.
