Bleaching

Dental bleaching can be used to correct many tooth discolorations. These discolorations may have been caused by staining, aging, trauma, medications, etc. Using the latest in bleaching technology, our office offers a safe method for lightening the teeth.

How is it done?

Impressions of the teeth are taken to make customized bleaching trays that hold the bleach against the teeth. The trays are worn at night according to Dr. McCormicks directions. The procedure normally takes 7-10 days. This take home system of bleaching has been very successful in lightening of the teeth. Before and after shades and digital photos are taken to compare starting and final results. Most people will gain a two-shade improvement in the color of their teeth.
