While both use trays and a bleaching gel to remove stains in about a week to ten days, one designed to reduce sensitivity and the other to address more serious forms of discoloration. We will examine your smile to see which form fits you best.

From there, we can decide which procedure or procedures will be necessary to improve your smile’s esthetics. If necessary, we can also recommend restorative procedures or discuss prevent options to keep your smile bright.
  4. True. After your treatment, you should take good care of your smile to help your new results last. First, simply maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing daily. We also suggest seeing your dentist once every six months for a thorough checkup and cleaning.
