So, if you are wondering if teeth whitening can damage your teeth, the answer is no, but it may improve your quality of life in a myriad of ways.

Can Teeth Whitening Really Improve Your Quality of Life?

According to numerous studies the answer to this question is a definite yes. Studies show that people with healthy, white, attractive smiles get more job offers, better jobs, more pay, get more dates, and have more friends. People also view them as successful and self-confident individuals. So a simple whitening procedure can have numerous benefits. Of course, if you do get your teeth whitened, remember to show off your smile, or else who is going to know, right?

What We Offer

At the office of Robert M. Browne, DDS, we offer a concentrated, potent, yet safe, bleaching agent that eliminates enamel stains, but also penetrates the enamel to whiten the tooth structure (the dentin) behind it. Ours is a take-home kit so you can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, and according to your own schedule. We supply custom-fitted, take-home trays along with the bleaching gel. The snug fit of the trays allows you to proportionately apply the gel to all of your teeth for even results. After wearing the trays for at least an hour each day for 10 to 14 days, your teeth will be up to, or more than, eight shades brighter!
