Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “bleaching” procedures. Teeth whitening or bleaching can be achieved using two different techniques. Teeth can be whitened using either the Zoom! Teeth Whitening System or by using our At Home Teeth Whitening System.
Our at Home Whitening System is safe, quick, and cost effective. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to begin teeth whitening. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much of each shows when you talk and smile.
- Corrects brown, yellow, and mottled tooth staining
- Works on people of all ages.
- Is a near permanent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness, and bringing a smile alive.
In only a day or two your custom bleach trays will be ready for you. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear, nearly invisible trays. With only a few hours of wear per day, the special bleaching agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the brightness you want, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile.
Dental bleaching can be used to correct many tooth discolorations. These discolorations may have been caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in teeth whitening technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful, “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, dental crowns, or teeth veneers may be the only choice. However, because of the low cost of whitening treatments, teeth whitening is nearly always worth a try.
How Is It Done?
An impression is taken to make a specialized tray to hold the bleach against the teeth. The material is used each night for about two to four hours for a week or two, after which significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology offers improvements in yellowing, aging, or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns, or veneers may be more appropriate.
Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available at drug stores and pharmacies; however, since these products are not as effective in producing predictable and consistent results, its better to use professionally recommended products.
