Everyone wants a bright, white smile. Teeth whitening services are growing in popularity, and it’s one of the most requested services offered by our practice. Everyone sees the growing consumer market focused on whiter teeth. The reality is that over-the-counter, “too good to be true” solutions typically don’t work.
Unfortunately, your teeth will darken over time. We offer a variety of options to whiten your teeth to combat the changes in the color of your teeth. This discoloration can be caused by factors such as the food and beverages you consume, like coffee, tea and soda. Other known factors for discoloration may include childhood medications or illnesses, tobacco use or improper oral hygiene. Restoring your natural white smile is a priority for our dental whitening team.
We are trained professionals using industry-approved methods. Our goal is to meet the needs of every patient, and every patient’s needs are different.
Zoom!® In-Office Whitening System
One of the methods we use is the Zoom!® In-Office Whitening System. A specially designed light activates the Zoom!® Whitening Gel to gently break down stains on your teeth to put the sparkle back in your smile!
Zoom!® Whitening is very safe while under the supervision of a trained dentist. It is one of the safest procedures in cosmetic dentistry. However, we do not recommend this procedure for pregnant women or children under age 13.
You will be given some post-whitening care instructions after your procedure. It is important to maintain a good oral hygiene regimen post-whitening to preserve your bright, white smile. We also recommend occasional touch-ups with the Zoom!® Take-Home Gel. Your smile will always be brighter than it was before the procedure, but by following these simple instructions, you can retain your results for a long time!
We also use Opalescence Whitening to brighten patients’ teeth. This method involves applying a gentle, carbamide peroxide gel either in our office or at home using special, custom-made trays. The gel comes in three different flavors: mint, melon or regular. In one visit, we will apply the solution, wait for the allotted time and reveal your brighter, whiter smile!
Although the Zoom!® System and Opalescence can help almost anyone, they may not be as effective in every case. We can determine if tooth whitening is a possible option for you. If you are considering whitening your teeth, call us today for a whitening evaluation!
