What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth Whitening is actually a mild bleaching process that restores stained or discolored teeth to a healthy, natural color. Don't be misled by unproven and ineffective over-the-counter whitening solutions. Our office uses an advanced procedure that is only available from your dentist.
What Causes Tooth Discoloration?
Teeth become discolored for different reasons:
Is Whitening Safe?
Whitening is very safe. We use a product that has been proven safe when used under the direction of a dentist.
Is Whitening For Me?
Dr. Humbert will evaluate your teeth and smile to determine whether whitening is right for you. In some cases a different cosmetic procedure may better meet your expectations, but whitening is a safe, fast and easy process that is effective for almost everyone!
We Give You Choices!
You can choose in-office light-activated whitening for immediate results, or you can choose at-home whitening.

What Is The At-Home Whitening Process?
When Will I See Results?
How Long Will The Results Last?
The effects typically last several years. Many patients choose to "touch-up" their teeth every 6 to 12 months by applying the treatment once or twice. "Touch-ups" are especially useful for patients that drink beverages that stain teeth, like coffee, tea, and colas.
Are There Any Side-Effects?
Some patients may experience heightened tooth sensitivity to cold, or mild tooth or gum sensitivity during treatment, but these symptoms are only temporary and disappear within a few days.
