Teeth whitening, or tooth bleaching, is a cosmetic dentistry procedure designed to remove
stains and discoloration, as well as lighten pigmentation within the teeth. Discoloration
can be the result of genetics, accidents, medication, poor oral hygiene, aging, smoking,
certain foods or a combination of these factors. Stains can be either on the surface of
the teeth or within the tooth structure. Dr. Sundaram can change all this and give you a
white smile within one hour.
To accomplish the whitening of your teeth, we utilize a tray whitening system. This tray
whitening system is completed in 2 steps. The first step is to make an impression of your
teeth. With this impression, we'll craft you custom whitening trays that you can use over
and over. Finally, you will take the whitening gel and put it in the gel for a short period
of time over a period of a few days. This often results in a whiter smile of 4 - 8 shades!
