It is not uncommon for your teeth to discolor over time and appear more yellowed or dull-looking. This happens for several reasons, including some of the foods and beverages we consume, aging, certain medications we take, and lifestyle choices we make, like tobacco use.

However, professional teeth whitening in Amherst is an excellent option for restoring shine and sparkle to your smile.

How Does Professional Teeth Whitening Work?

Bleaching your teeth with your dentist is more simple and cost-effective than you might think. Better yet, you can do it the comfort of your own home, based on your own schedule.

We start by taking impressions of your teeth that we use to make custom plastic bleaching trays. We'll ensure the proper fit and send you home with professional, high-strength whitening gel that you'll learn how to safely apply to your trays. You can purchase more bleaching gel from our Amherst dental office anytime you would like to brighten your smile in the future.

Why Should I Choose Professional Teeth Whitening?

It is no secret that there are hundreds of teeth whitening products available at your fingertips from your local grocery store, so why would you choose to bleach your teeth with your dentist?

  • Stronger products = better results: Your dentist has higher strength teeth whitening gel than you can get at the grocery store, which means you won't spend as much time whitening your teeth to achieve your desired results.
  • Safety comes first: Bleaching your teeth under the supervision of your dentist is safer in case you might encounter any issues with tooth sensitivity or other problems.
  • Customized solutions: Your dentist makes trays designed specifically for your smile using impressions. Over-the-counter products may be ill-fitting, which may mean it's harder or riskier to achieve the brighter smile you are hoping for.
