When you want to improve your first impressions or feel more confident, looking into options for cosmetic dentistry is a great way to go. One of the first options you’ll come across is dental whitening. This is a fantastic way to improve your smile so you feel more comfortable smiling, talking, and laughing in social situations.

Teeth Whitening is Safe
When performed by a trained dental professional such as Dr. Scott A. Young, dental whitening is perfectly safe. Their knowledge of the options and your oral health enables him to create a safe treatment plan that gives you the results you want.

Preferred Over Other Options
Other cosmetic dentistry options such as veneers or replacement crowns remove parts of the tooth. While these options are appropriate in some situations, whitening is generally preferred because it is non-invasive and keeps all of your healthy tooth structure.

How It Works
Our dentist will make a pair of specially formed trays fitted to your teeth, and use them to apply a carefully mixed concentration of dental peroxide bleach. The concentration will be left on for a time to allow the bleach to lighten your teeth. Depending on how much brightening you need, you may be done in a single day or require a few visits.
