Tooth Whitening

Tooth whitening is one of the fastest and easiest ways to brighten your smile. It is a procedure that can lighten the shade of your teeth and remove stain or discoloration caused by aging, certain medications, tobacco, red wine, coffee, and tea. Whitening should always be done under the supervision of a dentist. At Downtown Dentistry we can determine any underlying causes for the discoloration of your teeth and we can help you choose the whitening system that will best achieve your desired results.

At Downtown Dentistry we offer to our patients take-home whitening kits. Our office recommends Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gels. Whitening takes place in the comfort of your home. Trays are custom fitted to your teeth and are worn for a prescribed length of time each day. The difference between a prescribed whitening kit and a store bought kit is that the materials prescribed by a dentist are generally stronger concentrations, and provide faster, more dramatic and longer lasting results. More importantly, Dr. Foksa can provide the personalized advice that you need to determine if whitening is right for you.

Whitening can cause increased tooth sensitivity in some people. This is a normal side effect and usually subsides a few days after the whitening treatments have been completed. Also, tooth whitening will not last forever, so the procedure will have to be repeated periodically.
