Our Teeth Whitening Options
There are so many teeth whitening products on the market that the very idea of brightening your teeth can become a bit overwhelming. Before deciding what method would work best on you, consider your teeth’s sensitivity, the amount of time treatment would take, and if you’ll be more comfortable doing the procedure in a dentist office or in your home. You should also keep in mind that every individual is different, so results of a specific treatment might vary from person to person. Your preferences and needs will give you a starting point about which treatment might suit you best. We always recommend consulting with our dentist before making a final decision on any teeth whitening procedure. Our dentist and our team are here to help you.
Take-Home Whitening Trays
Take-home whitening trays are a type of teeth whitening procedure that you can perform at the comfort of your home. This is an easy and cost-effective teeth whitening treatment that can be easily obtained. You must follow the instructions given by our dentist to see the results at home. Although they can be a convenient option, obtaining great results can take longer than other treatments and they don’t always work well for deep stains. These trays are custom made to go over your teeth, and whiten your teeth through a special gel that is found on the inside of the trays.
Theses trays, once made for you, can then be taken home as a teeth whitening kit, along with the guidelines given by our dentist. The time that they must remain on your teeth can vary according to your teeth whitening needs.
Zoom is a bleaching process widely used to lighten discoloration of enamel and dentin. Tooth discoloration may result from drinking coffee, tea, cola and red wine, or from smoking. The aging process also can stain and darken your teeth. The Zoom in-office tooth whitening procedure uses the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp – to accelerate the bleaching process – to activate the 25 percent hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. As the hydrogen peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin to bleach the stained substances, leaving the structure of the tooth unchanged.Read more about Zoom!
