“ZOOM” in office Tooth Whitening
Power whitening is done by our team utilizing an activating light in combination with a powerful hydrogen peroxide-based gel. After protective coating to the gums, the gel is applied and removed four times at 15-minute intervals.
The result is the removal of internal stains from aging and internal discoloration. We do not add “white” to the teeth. Removal of brown and yellow discoloration yields the whitening effect. This lasts for about two years or more. We see varied results from many patients. Ask for a free whitening consult, in which our cosmetric doctors evaaluate your level of discoloration for whitening.
Many people are satisfied with the sparkle they get from brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, flossing once a day, and the regular cleanings at the dentist’s office. However, if you decide you would like to go beyond this to make your smile look brighter, you should investigate all your options.
Finding the Best Treatment for You
Whiteners do not correct all types of discoloration. For example, yellowish teeth will probably bleach well, brownish teeth may bleach less well, and grayish teeth may not bleach well at all.
Likewise, whitening may not enhance your smile if you have had tooth-colored fillings and crowns. The whitener will not affect the color of these materials, and they could stand out in your newly whitened smile.
In these cases, you have other options, such as porcelain veneers. Schedule a visit with our office to learn whether whitening procedures would be effective for you.
