Here’s How It Works


Preparing Your Teeth

First, Dr. Austin will clean your teeth and protect your gums with a special solution. Then, he’ll use retractors to keep your lips and tongue away from your teeth.


Whitening Your Smile

Dr. Austin will apply a powerful whitener to your teeth, use a UV light to “activate” it, and then rinse the whitener away after a few minutes. This process will be repeated until your smile reaches your desired shade.


Maintaining Results

By seeing us for six-month dental visits, maintaining great oral hygiene, and avoiding staining foods and drinks, you can keep your smile shiny for years to come!

Frequently Asked Questions

Get Answers About Teeth Whitening

Am I A Good Candidate For Teeth Whitening?

As long as your mouth is healthy and your teeth have external stains, you’re a good candidate for teeth whitening. This is because whitening can only whiten the exterior of teeth.

If you have severe or internal stains, alternative treatments like veneers or dental crowns may be necessary, in some cases.

Why Does Teeth Whitening Cause Sensitivity?

The chemicals used to whiten teeth tend to “demineralize” the outer layer of your tooth’s enamel. This exposes the “dentinal tubules” that connect to the nerve of your tooth, causing sensitivity.

The good news is that this only lasts for a few days. Proper oral hygiene will remineralize your tooth, strengthen your enamel, and eliminate whitening-induced sensitivity.

What’s The Difference Between Take-Home And In-Office Whitening?

The biggest difference is the time it takes to see results. In-office whitening can brighten your smile by 5-10 shades in just one appointment.

In contrast, take-home whitening takes 2-3 weeks or longer for the best results. However, some patients prefer this, as it offers more gradual results and it’s less obvious that you've had your teeth whitened.
