Our office uses the Sapphire™ Professional Chairside Whitening System to lighten discoloration of dentin and enamel. The entire whitening process is done in one in-office visit and it whitens your teeth up to twelve shades lighter in one hour.
Yes! Under the supervision of our Woodbury Dental Arts staff it is and will not harm your gums or teeth. It is a separate appointment following a cleaning, an oral exam, and a teeth shade assessment. It is not recommended for those who are pregnant, nursing, having chemotherapy, taking light sensitive drugs, or are under age 13.
In the early years as teeth are forming, certain antibiotics such as tetracycline or too much fluoride can discolor the teeth. As time goes by we diminish the power of our smile by staining our teeth as we drink colas, red wine, coffee or smoke. Aging, genetics and certain foods also play a part in this.
