What are the details of teeth whitening?
It’s safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much you show when you talk and smile.
In only a day or two your custom bleach splints will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear splints. With only a few hours of wear per day, our special bleaching agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile. We’ll want to take “after” photos at your next appointment.
Dental bleaching can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a solid try.

How is teeth whitening done?
Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening
- Corrects brown, yellow and spotted tooth staining
- Works on people of any age
- Is a near-permanent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and brings a smile alive
An impression is taken to make a specialized “mouthguard” or “stent” to hold the bleach against the teeth. The material is used each night for about 3-4 hours for a week or two, and at the end of this time, significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology allows us to promise improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or porcelain veneers may be more appropriate.
Considerations for Teeth Whitening
Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available for purchase at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can cause harm to the gums and teeth, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial
I came in for a new patient exam, and teeth whitening. When I scheduled my exam, Hannah helped me get the information I needed. As well as verified my dental benefits before my visit, so it was smooth sailing from start to finish. Dr. Mercado is an amazing dentist and took the time to explain everything she was doing as well as educate me on ways to improve my overall dental health. I have never had a more thorough exam.The in-office whitening treatment was an awesome experience. I have never had a whitening treatment before. Cassandra did an excellent job with the whitening to make sure I was comfortable, she set up Netflix for me. When finished she made sure that I was satisfied with the final outcome! I have only seen the possible shade lifting results of whitening but now that I have seen them on myself I am very impressed. I will definitely be returning for regular dental check ups as well as completing any treatment Dr. Mercado suggests. Overall the experience and staff at Monarch are great and I give them two thumbs up!!!!
