Teeth Whitening is a non-invasive procedure that restores the natural color of your teeth. Our dentist at Crossroads Family Dentistry can recommend several teeth whitening techniques
based on the needs of our patients. Some of these choices are the traditional teeth whitening procedures that take a bit of time to show results, and some are more drastic, which can produce results from the first session of whitening.
We also offer technologically advanced treatments, which are safe and produce excellent results for patients with both sensitive and non-sensitive teeth without damaging your enamel.

Laser Teeth Whitening
Laser teeth whitening is administered in a dental office exclusively and is the most expensive method for bleaching. Generally, all forms of teeth whitening work by releasing oxygen ions from a tooth whitening gel, which gently lifts stains from the teeth. This is because the laser simply lifts the stains faster. Another advantage of using a laser is that (depending on the type used) it allows the dentist to bleach one tooth at a time. This is helpful when one tooth is more discolored than the surrounding teeth.
