Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they've been dreaming of with our simple "whitening" procedure.
It's safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much you show when you talk and smile.
We use the Zoom Whitening in-office process which will produce immediate whitening results and continues to whiten for up to 48 hours. This process takes about 1 1/2 hours from start to finish. Our special bleaching agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. We will also make custom bleach splints for occasional use at home. We provide you with a
special bleaching agent that you put into the clear splints.
The Zoom teeth whitening system can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in whitening technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful "brilliant" smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of whitening treatments, it is nearly always worth a solid try.
The zoom whitening agent is applied to your teeth and is then cured with a light. An impression is taken to make a specialized "mouthguard" or "stent" for occasional at home use to keep your smile at the level of whiteness you desire. For confidence in appearance, teeth whitening technology allows us to promise improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or porcelain veneers may be more appropriate.
Over-the-counter whitening agents are available for purchase at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can cause harm to the gums and teeth, it's better to use products that our practice recommends.
