The Best Bleaching Procedure Ever Developed

Bleaching is painless, harmless and much, much less expensive than extensive cosmetic treatments like bonding and porcelain veneers. 

The procedure involves taking impressions (molds) of your teeth and making custom appliances which the patient uses at home along with the bleaching solutions we provide.  After a couple of weeks (normal time), there is an in-office session where we safely apply a much stronger solution.  Only a dentist can purchase and treat teeth with these chemicals.  When used properly, however, they are totally safe.

There are many over-the-counter products available that claim to lighten teeth.  Also, you may have heard advertisements from dentists claiming to lighten teeth in one visit using a special curing light.  Well, I have studied this procedure extensively and talked to some of the foremost authorities in bleaching technology. 

While it may be possible to achieve some degree of whitening quickly or with over-the-counter products, you cannot achieve a dramatic result without a combination of procedures and solutions over several weeks.  Only a dentist can safely use and apply the really strong chemicals needed to bleach very dark teeth, especially in older individuals. 

So give the Crest Whitening Strips, as well as the many, may whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes a try if you want.  However, don't expect a dramatic result.

These pictures show the dramatic improvement in the appearance of my own teeth utilizing Deep BleachingTM.  My teeth, while healthy, had always been darker than normal.  My dad has dark teeth as do my two brothers. I have always been a coffee and tea drinker plus I smoked for a number of years.

If Deep BleachingTM will work for me it will very likely work for you, as well.
