Bright, white teeth are a staple of a classic, beautiful smile. Fortunately, teeth bleaching is one of the quickest, most affordable ways to brighten a smile.

Whether you have a fast-approaching special event that requires you to look your best, or if you have become self-conscious about the colour of your teeth, we can help. Reach out to our office today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sol Weiss. Our customized teeth whitening treatments can illuminate all the best features of your smile.
If you are interested in brightening your smile, and have healthy teeth and gums, you are most likely a good candidate for teeth whitening. In addition to aging, tobacco use and some medications, darkening of the teeth is usually a result of consuming coffee, tea, red wine, and foods like beets and berries. During a consultation with Dr. Weiss, you can discuss your unique cosmetic goals, and Dr. Weiss can help determine whether teeth whitening will help you meet those goals.
Our practice offers two types of teeth whitening:
Regardless of the type of bleaching you choose, we can provide preliminary treatment with Fluoridex, a paste designed to reduce tooth sensitivity.
Hydrogen peroxide gel is the key component in teeth whitening. In-office and take-home whitening utilize different strengths of the gel, meaning a higher strength can brighten teeth in a shorter period of time. The Zoom!™ In-Office Whitening System is extremely efficient, and uses a dental lamp to intensify the bleaching effects. Optimal results can be achieved in about an hour.
If you choose to whiten your teeth at home, Dr. Weiss will take impressions to create customized trays molded to fit your smile. The whitening effects of at-home trays are comparable to in-office whitening, but treatment time is spread out over the course of a week or longer. Daywhite® requires users to wear their trays for 30 minutes twice a day, while Nitewhite® whitens teeth over 6-8 hours and is worn while a patient is asleep.
