To make the teeth look brighter, patients can do teeth whitening or bleaching. This is used to enhance the smile and lighten discolored teeth. It is a painless and safe procedure.
You can use a lower concentration of bleach if you have any sensitivity with whitening. Our office offers two methods of teeth whitening: Zoom In-Office Whitening and Take Home Bleaching Trays.
Zoom In-Office Whitening
If you are wanting brighter teeth fast, Zoom is the ideal option for you. It’s perfect for busy people that need quick results for weddings, running, etc. This procedure takes about one hour and is done in our office. A light-activated gel is put on your teeth, and a special light is used to enhance the action of this gel.
This results in dramatically whiter teeth that can last for years. Our suggestion is to use custom bleaching trays at home with the ZOOM treatment to keep your smile bright for years to come. The cost of ZOOM in-office treatment also includes these bleaching trays.
Take Home Bleaching Trays
A less expensive but less effective way to brighten and lighten teeth is by using take home bleaching trays. These trays can be used in the comfort of your home to gradually whiten teeth and are made specifically for you. The amount of time the bleach is in contact with your teeth can be adjusted and depend on any sensitivity you may experience . Results from this treatment are seen within two weeks.
