What is teeth whitening?

Over time, teeth naturally become discolored and stained. This problem is made worse by certain lifestyle and eating habits, such as smoking, drinking coffee and wine, and poor dental hygiene. Teeth whitening in Burlington, North Carolina aims to reverse this process for a whiter, brighter smile! At Dr. Monahan’s dental office, we believe a more beautiful smile is the first step to a more beautiful life.

How do I whiten my teeth?

We offer a safe and effective solution to whiten your teeth in the convenience of your own home. Dr. Monahan, our talented dentist, will take full impressions (molds) of your teeth and create custom whitening trays. These trays are made of a comfortable plastic and are designed to fit snugly over your teeth to deliver the whitening agent safely and effectively. To use, you will place a gentle bleaching gel into the trays and wear them for a few hours a day. This gel absorbs into the enamel of your teeth to break down stains and whiten your smile. By using our at-home teeth whitening method, you are able to whiten your teeth to the shade you desire and have complete control over your smile. Teeth whitening can also be done at a time and place that is convenient for you. For more information, we invite you to contact our office today!
