Common Frequently Asked Questions

How can I safely whiten my teeth?

We offer two types of procedures to help whiten your smile. The first is called Sapphire, an in-office procedure that takes about one and a half hours. In this short period of time, you can safely and comfortably achieve results from 6-10 shades whiter. The second method can be done at home and uses whitening trays ( one and a half hours daily) to whiten and brighten your smile in a few weeks. The take home method offers you the comfort and convenience of being in your own home during treatment.
