Tooth Whitening

Tooth whitening (or bleaching) is a non-invasive, simple dental treatment that enhances the beauty of your smile by brightening the color of natural tooth enamel.

White Teeth Are Important

Having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients and there are several ways to whiten teeth. The most common method is using a home tooth whitening system and it will whiten teeth dramatically. Tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, so, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Dr. Simonsen can replace any restorations after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth.

How long will teeth whitening last?

Tooth whitening is not a permanent procedure. Touch-ups may be needed once a year and more often if you smoke and/or drink coffee, tea, or wine.

Reasons For Tooth Whitening


•  Yellow, brown stained teeth.
•  Normal wear.
•  Florousis.
•  Stained teeth due to medications.

What is involved in professional tooth whitening?


Professional tooth whitening in at your dentist office generally requires two visits.

First Visit

At the first appointment, impressions will be made of your teeth to fabricate custom, clear, plastic trays.

Second Visit

At your second appointment, you will try on the trays for proper fit. The trays are worn with special whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a couple of weeks depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening. Most patients experience tooth sensitivity during the time you are whitening your teeth, it should stop after you have stopped bleaching.
