Whiter, brighter teeth can make you look years younger. Tooth whitening has grown in popularity and there are several ways you can get the results you want. The fastest way is an in-office whitening system called Zoom! In just over an hour your teeth will be dramatically whiter. The procedure is safe, effective, simple and painless. A whitening gel is placed on your teeth, which is activated by a specially designed light. A fluoride treatment completes the procedure.
Another safe method used is a bleaching process that lightens the enamel and dentin using a mild peroxide-based solution placed in a custom-fitted tray. The tray is worn over your teeth for a period of time each day until you achieve the results you want. Both methods (in-office and take-home) are effective and safe ways to help you achieve that brighter smile.
Teeth whitening can sometimes make your teeth temporarily sensitive. This goes away within a few days. If you used coffee, tea, red wine, or tobacco, you may find your teeth darken more quickly. Touch up applications will help eliminate this problem. For all your tooth whitening and bleaching needs, visit our office.
