What makes teeth whitening such a popular option at our St. Augustine, FL, office?
Whitening Is a Conservative,
EFFECTIVE TREATMENT OPTION
Simply improving the brightness of your smile can dramatically affect your overall look. While yellow or discolored teeth can make you look older or unhealthy, whiter teeth can take years off your appearance.
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.
Unlike porcelain veneers, teeth whitening does not require any alteration to your teeth. The procedure has no downtime or recovery, making it a popular option for patients who need to quickly improve the look of their smiles.

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.
