In the West, the value of white teeth is very high. White teeth are considered a good way to promote an image of success and cleanliness. Our idea of teeth whitening is to change your whole image through teeth whitening. A model who had whitening done at our clinic was able to get an exclusive modeling contract with a famous brand at an audition right after the whitening. Many of our clients come to us for teeth whitening before their wedding. They want to be photographed with white teeth for an event that will last a lifetime. We are honored to be able to help with this as well.

Types of teeth whitening
There are two main types of teeth whitening: 「In-Office Whitening」and「Home Whitening」
In-Office Whitening (Professional Whitening)
In-office whitening is a whitening procedure performed by a dentist. The dentist applies a chemical agent to the surface of the teeth and shines a special light on it. The light causes the agent to penetrate the teeth and break down the discolored material. The advantage of in-office whitening is that only one treatment is needed to achieve the desired results.
Home whitening is a whitening procedure performed at home. The dentist prescribes a special bleaching agent and a mouthpiece, and the patient wears the mouthpiece with the agent applied for about 20 minutes each day at home. Home whitening takes longer to show results than in-office whitening, but has advantages such as lower cost.
