Teeth Whitening

Reno teeth whitening is a popular procedure that leaves you with a gleaming smile. Often, the first characteristic someone notices upon meeting or greeting you is your smile. Our patients pride themselves on their teeth and want them to shine when they decide to show them off. Fortunately, there are many options when it comes down to achieving a whiter smile. Whether it’s a Do-It-Yourself method or is professionally done, you should know your options.

As a way to whiten discolorations or stains on your teeth, bleaching is a great approach. The process is relatively painless and is a safe way to achieve your perfect smile. Reno Dental Associates offers two types of teeth whitening; in-office whitening and tray whitening.

Teeth Whitening


The first form of teeth whitening that we offer is in-office whitening. This is the best option if you want immediate results and it can be done in as little as an hour. The process starts by applying a protective coating to your gums to prevent any soft tissue damage. Then, a light-activated gel is applied to your teeth and a unique light or laser is used to activate the gel. This treatment can last years and it typically leaves patients feeling more confident and happy with their brighter, whiter smile.

In-office teeth whitening is relatively painless and simple. If you’re interested in transforming your smile to be brighter, whiter and more vibrant instantly, then in-office teeth whitening is the perfect solution.


The second form of teeth whitening is tray whitening. You can use this approach during your busy schedule in your own home. In addition, this approach is less expensive than other methods. Tray whitening is a more gradual whitening process compared to other methods done in-office.

To begin, our Northern Nevada located dental associates take a mold of your teeth in order to create a custom tray that you will wear when whitening. Following our tray whitening directions you will be able to apply our special bleaching material yourself and whiten at home.

The whitening trays should be worn 30-60 minutes up to twice in one day. As you whiten your teeth daily you will begin to see impressive results. The whitening treatment can be used to maintain your fabulous smile over time.
