Have your teeth yellowed? Do you have stains that you cannot brush away? Teeth becoming dull and yellowed are almost unavoidable. Our teeth tend to become darker with age and everyday activities like drinking coffee or eating darkly colored foods will stain teeth with time. Using tobacco, for example, is another way teeth will darken. Fortunately, there is a solution for lifting permanent stains available at our dental practice. Our cosmetic dentist offers services to improve your appearance. For those who want a whiter, brighter smile, we provide in-office whitening treatments and take-home whitening systems.
How Zoom! In-Office Whitening Works
Receiving a whitening treatment at our office only takes about an hour. This is a convenient way to achieve a vibrant white smile in a short amount of time. In-office whitening produces very noticeable results and normally lightens a smile between eight and ten shades. The process begins by placing protective gauze and liquid dam on soft oral tissues such as the gums and insides of cheeks. Patients will wear protective eyewear and a special oral appliance to keep the mouth opened. Once this process is complete, a prescription-strength bleaching solution is applied on the outer surfaces of teeth. Then, a laser light will hover over the mouth to activate the whitening process. The laser helps deepen and accelerate the treatment. When treatment is finished, patients leave our office with a beautiful, illustrious smile.
Take-Home Whitening Systems
For those who prefer to whiten conveniently at home, we offer take-home teeth whitening kits. With the same prescription-strength bleaching solution, this system provides beautiful results just like laser in-office whitening. Whitening your teeth at home involves wearing custom-fitted trays for a specified amount of time every day until desired results are achieved. This method provides noticeable professional results and is a great way to touch up previous whitening treatments.
