Why should I get my teeth whitened?
Teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to improve your appearance. Studies have shown that people who have whiter teeth not only look younger than people who don’t, but there is a correlation between high self-esteem and a white, confident smile. Years of drinking coffee, tea, cola, red wine, and smoking eventually takes their toll on teeth. Our product and service is safe, simple, convenient, and more affordable than ever before.

Those who avoid foods and beverages that stain may be able to wait one year or longer before another whitening treatment or touch-up is needed.
Do teeth whiteners damage tooth enamel? Studies of teeth whitening products using 10% carbamide peroxide showed little to no effect on the hardness or mineral content of a tooth's enamel surface.
Do teeth whiteners damage existing dental restorations?
Over 10 years of clinical use of teeth whitening products containing 10% carbamide peroxide have not shown any damage to existing fillings. The issue is not "damage" to existing restorations; rather, keep in mind that existing restorations such as tooth-colored fillings, crowns, bonding, veneers, and bridges do not lighten. This means that any pre-existing dental work may need to be replaced to match the new tooth shade achieved in the natural teeth, should a bleaching process proceed.
Do teeth whiteners damage a tooth's nerve?
There's no evidence to date that the teeth whitening process has a harmful effect on the health of a tooth's nerve. One study reported that at both a 4.5- and 7-year follow up, no individual who used a teeth whitening system needed a root canal procedure on any teeth that had been whitened.
