Brighten Your Teeth and Smile with Confidence
Teeth whitening is a fast and simple way to dramatically brighten your smile and boost your confidence. Whiter teeth are associated with beauty and a healthy lifestyle. They can give you a more youthful and energetic appearance.
Dr. Bhave provides high-quality in-office teeth whitening. She also furnishes customized trays and professional-grade whitening gel so you can whiten your teeth conveniently at home on your own schedule.
How Teeth Lose Their Whiteness
Since tooth enamel is porous, staining or coloring substances in food, coffee and tobacco can penetrate into the enamel, often far below the surface. Certain medications, as well as aging, can also affect the enamel’s color and clarity. These and other factors can darken, yellow or stain your teeth over time and discourage you from smiling.
Why You Should Get Your Teeth Whitened by a Professional
There are many whitening products and services offered outside the dental office, such as over-the-counter whitening systems and fast-whitening given at mall kiosk stations. However, the whitening formulas used do not have the strength to remove anything deeper than surface stains.
Only a dentist can offer whitening formulas that are strong enough to remove the stains buried in the microcracks of the teeth that are deep below the surface. Our whitening systems penetrate deep into your teeth and are able to eradicate tough stains.
Our Professional Teeth Whitening
Dr. Bhave offers both professional in-house whitening and customized trays with whitening gel for convenient home use. She can use either option or a combination of both to achieve your whitening goals, and will let you know what is best after an oral exam and consultation.
Using our in-house whitening system, Dr. Bhave can give you a much brighter smile in as little as an hour. As part of the procedure, she puts a protective barrier over the gums around the teeth being whitened so there is no added sensitivity and the procedure is comfortable.
For take-home whitening, Dr. Bhave chooses the whitening gel that is best suited to your needs. This includes picking a gel strength that is comfortable for you and causes no unnecessary sensitivity. She will give you full instructions on how to place the gel in the trays, and will tell you how long and how often your home whitening sessions should be.
