Yellow or discolored teeth can make you feel self-consciouswhen you meet someone new, speak in public, or smile for photographs.

At the Center for Dental Excellence, we can administer professional teeth whitening treatment to safely and effectively brighten your smile.

Fast Treatment

Patients who choose in-office treatment can enjoy a visibly whiter smile in just one session. Meanwhile, whitening toothpaste or strips can take several weeks to show even slight differences.

In contrast with over-the-counter products, professional teeth whitening treatments use stronger solutions that provide faster, longer-lasting results. The results of whitening are not permanent, but you can maintain them. By avoiding certain foods and taking care to brush, floss, and attend regular checkups, your results can last many years with periodic touch-up treatments.

How does laser teeth whitening work?

Advanced technology makes treatment more effective...

A Special Laser

ACHIEVES FASTER, MORE IMPACTFUL RESULTS

We understand that at-home whitening treatments like trays and whitening strips can be time-consuming and inconvenient. Laser teeth whitening allows you to achieve a substantially brighter smile in a single appointment. A specially developed blue light is used to activate the teeth whitening gel, target discoloration, and speed up the process. We are proud to offer patients the most advanced treatment solutions for the best possible experience.
