Is your smile stained or discolored? Do you wish for a whiter, more brilliant smile? Dr. Orazio may recommend teeth whitening. We may recommend teeth whitening for you if your teeth are yellowed and have no restorations. This is because other shades of staining may not bleach well or at all. Restorations like dental fillings and dental crowns will not react to the effects of teeth whitening, so they would stand out against newly whitened teeth.
If you choose to whiten your teeth we will provide you with a custom-made tray and a gel whitening solution. Slip the tray over your teeth with the gel and wear as prescribed. Usually, treatment time is for 30 minutes during the day or at night for up to four weeks.
