Teeth Whitening

Your smile it the first thing people notice about you.  Professionally Whitening your teeth can help ensure your smile is making the best impression possible.  Dr. McCormick offers treatment options to meet all your needs.  

What teeth whitening treatments do you offer?

We offer a number of options for whitening your teeth including both in-office whitening treatments and those for home use.  Dr. McCormick will examine your teeth and discuss your objectives. With 25 years of experience in teeth whitening, he can create the right plan for you.  

What are my options if I want to see immediate results?

In office, we use the Opalescence Boost Teeth Whitening System.  After just a single session you will have significantly brighter teeth.  

Do you use a light as part of the whitening procedure?

No, the light is not necessary and use of a light can dehydrate teeth. The dehydration makes them look lighter for a short period, but there is a rebound effect that makes them look darker in the longer term.  The Opalescence Boost system is chemically activated and does not require a light.  

What type of at home teeth whitening systems do you offer?

We use Opalescence take-home whitening gel and the Opalescence Go system. Opalescence take-home whitening gel is delivered via custom-made trays and comes in a variety of concentrations. The Opalescence Go system utilizes prefilled disposable trays.

What if I have sensitive teeth?

While higher concentrations products will yield faster results, they might not be the right option for patients with sensitive teeth.  If you have sensitive teeth, you may need to whiten your teeth more slowly with the Opalescence gel that utilizes a lower concentration of the whitening agent to achieve the look you desire without irritating your teeth.  If you have very sensitive teeth, we also offer desensitizing products to make the whitening process more comfortable.

What if just one tooth has darkened and no longer matches the rest of my teeth?

Internal whitening of individual teeth may be a good option if you.  Discoloration sometimes occurs if you had a root canal or damage to the tooth.  Dr. McCormick with look at your individual circumstances and present the options that will work best for your needs.
