Professional Teeth Whitening

Whitening is a process where we are able to remove discoloration from teeth. Generally speaking, the stains are due to coffee, tea or cigarettes. Also, as we get older, our teeth tend to darken. Whitening may be used to whiten older teeth as well.

Although so-called “bleaching kits” can be purchased commercially, there is a significant difference between performing whitening in Dr. MacNaughton’s office as opposed to performing a bleaching procedure at home. Whitening using modern day equipment takes an hour or two in the comfort of our office as opposed to several weeks of using commercial bleaching techniques at home. Home whitening agents may also damage teeth or gums and can even change tooth sensitivity. In-office whitening procedures are safe and harmless.
