Teeth Whitening

One of the first things you notice when you meet someone is their smile.  Dark or stained teeth can leave a negative impression.  A whiter, brighter smile can leave a lasting positive impression.  Unfortunately, there are many factors working to make your teeth darker. These include certain lifestyle choices, the process of aging, as well as certain foods and drinks.  But with teeth whitening solutions in our West Hartford office, you can achieve a whiter and lighter smile!

We have teamed up with Ultradent Products to offer a variety of teeth whitening options, from in-office whitening sessions to strictly at home use.

In evaluating teeth whitening options, you should look for solutions that meet the following criteria:

  • Proven to be safe and effective
  • Will result in little to no sensitivity
  • Fast and convenient
  • Performed under the supervision of a dental professional
  • Allow for long lasting results

All of the solutions we offer meet the above criteria and will allow you to siginificantly improve upon the shade of your teeth.

Teeth Whitening Frequently Asked Questions

What are the differences between your whitening solutions and supermarket/drugstore products?

  • There are two major differences.  In our solutions, we can provide a much higher concentration of the active ingredient (either carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide) than supermarket products. This is because our dentists supervise the process to make sure these much more powerful concentrations do not cause undesirable effects.  The second difference is that our solutions include fluoride to strengthen your teeth and potassium nitrate to reduce sensitivity.

What is the difference between "teeth bleaching" and "teeth whitening"?

  • There is no difference between bleaching and whitening.  Teeth Bleaching is the same as Teeth Whitening.
