When patients have stained or discolored teeth, Gerald V. Hansen, DDS, may recommend teeth whitening in Reno, Nevada. Teeth whitening is ideal for patients who have yellowed, unrestored teeth. Other shades of staining, like brown or gray, will not bleach as well or at all. Teeth with restorations like fillings or dental crowns will stand out after whitening treatment because the restorations will not be affected by the bleaching product. Our dentist offers both in-office and at-home whitening treatments.

If you choose at-home whitening, our dentist will supply you with a custom-made dental tray and a gel bleaching solution. Slip the tray over the teeth with the whitening product and wear as prescribed by our dentist. Usually, patients wear the tray for several hours a day or during the night.
