However, bleaching may still be recommended as it is reasonably priced, and may help to lessen the reduction to your teeth needed during the veneering process.
There are 2 methods to bleach teeth.
In Office “Deep Bleaching”
Our deep bleaching technique involves a combination home and in office process for creating a stunning bright smile. You will have impressions of your teeth taken and home bleaching trays made. We will ask that you bleach at home daily for 30-60 minutes for one week prior to your appointment with us. You will return to the office and have the in office treatment completed. First we place a protective covering over your gum tissues. We then place the bleaching product on your teeth. We will sit with you through your 60 minute appointment re-applying the bleach several times during the procedure. We will finish with a sealant over your teeth which will seal in the whitened teeth and will allow the bleaching process to continue after you leave the office.After your bleaching is completed, we will ask that you avoid dark foods or drinks for 48 hours. Thereafter, you will enjoy your beautiful smile. Maintenance of your whitened teeth involves touch-ups with your bleaching trays once a month.
At Home Tray Bleaching
For many people, this is all that is needed. This involves impressions of your teeth and creation of clear custom rubber trays that fit your teeth snugly and hold the bleaching material against your teeth. You will do this treatment 30-60 minutes per night for 2 weeks. You also may wish to do the treatment while you sleep and we have a less concentrated solution that is safe for use all night. This method is effective for most people and is the least expensive method to brighten your smile.
