Teeth Whitening

iStock-486723652It is said that the first thing that people see or notice is your smile. Therefore, a beautiful and brighter smile can make a lasting first impression. Dr. Paul S. Herrin and his team want to help you feel more confident by offering exceptional teeth whitening services to restore the natural color of your teeth for a radiant and whiter smile.

Teeth whitening is suitable for patients who looking to brighten their teeth due to discoloration. As we age, it is normal for our teeth to darken or yellow over time due to:

  • Eating and drinking certain foods such as coffee and wine
  • Smoking or any use of tobacco
  • Taking antibiotics
  • Aging or genetics

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Dr. Herrin will perform an oral examination to see if you are suitable for our teeth whitening treatment. He will then make an impression of your teeth to create custom teeth whitening trays that may be used continuously through an extended period of time. Dr. Herrin will provide you with a special bleaching gel that you can wear for as little as 30 minutes per day or even overnight. It allows you to get professional whitening results at the convenience and comfort of your own home in a safe and effective way. You may see results in a whiter smile for up to 4 to 8 shades.

You may feel sensitivity for a few days after the treatment. If this problem persists, please schedule an appointment with us. Please be aware that that too much whitening can be harmful to your tooth enamel and cause severe discomfort. It is recommended that you do not overuse whitening products for longer than the suggested time given by Dr. Herrin.
