Whitening and Bleaching

Over time our teeth tend to become discolored or stained.  Whether this is from smoking, coffee, or any other foods, a beautiful smile could be closer than you think.  We offer a safe, inexpensive solution to an unsightly smile.  Whitening your teeth is a very simple procedure that can be completed in relatively short period of time.

Our office has researched several whitening products over the years, and we have found one product which really stands out.  Dr. Curtis has taken training courses, visited whitening clinics in New York, Florida and California, and has decided to offer only one system to his patients.   He works one on one with the supplier of this system, which uses some very new, unique methods to make it so effective. Make no mistake, the chemistry is different, and better, with this unique system.  The bottom line is, we have chosen one product because the results are so dramatic, and it works so well!  Our system is affordable, and makes a dramatic change in the whiteness of your teeth in a short period of time.


The first step in the whitening process is impressions.  We will take full impressions of your upper and lower teeth.  These impressions will be made into custom bleaching trays.  We have found that meticulous detail is required to make extremely accurate trays to custom fit the shape of your teeth.  This is one of many differences from other less effective whitening methods.  The trays will fit onto your teeth perfectly so that the whitening material can have the maximum effect on your teeth. The second step is to place the whitening solution in the trays and wear them overnight.  We use a specific blend of product, which is blended with desinsitizer materials, and is only available from one manufacturer in the world. We have the product directly shipped to our office once your trays are completed, to insure that we have the freshest product.  Our manufacturer takes great pride in not warehousing their material.  The whitening product that we provide you was made within the past few weeks, so that the product does not lose its potency.   Within the first few days, you will see a significant improvement in the color of your teeth. As you continue with your treatment over a 2 to 3 week period, you'll notice continued whitening.  Your smile will look brighter and younger.  We may even take before and after photos so that you will be able to compare the amazing transformation.

Whitening only works on natural teeth and may not be effective in all cases.  We will inform you as to the potential whitening for your specific situation.  That said, whitening will make ANY mouth look better as the natural tooth becomes brighter.  Some patients then choose to replace fillings or crowns to match the new shade of their natural teeth.
