Brighter, Whiter Teeth
One of the most commonly asked questions at our office is “How do I get a whiter smile?” If you have been an avid user of whitening toothpastes and strips, and find results less than stellar, you are not alone. Over-the-counter whitening products are really only beneficial if you have minimal discoloration, and even then – they will only deliver a slightly lighter smile and may even cause dental sensitivity. For individuals who have stubborn and unwanted stains on their teeth, we offer multiple teeth whitening options.
At-home Teeth Whitening
This is great if time is not a concern and you want something that can be easily used in the comfort of your home. Trays will be customized to fit over your teeth and you will be provided a professional strength whitening gel more effective than any store bought option. By simply wearing your trays for 30 minutes a day – you will enjoy brighter teeth in just two weeks. Maintenance is made simple since you have all you need at your fingertips. Once you run out of whitening gel, just let us know and we will provide you a new one.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
If time is a concern and you want results in just one day, you will enjoy the benefits of our in-office power whitening treatment. We use Zoom! Whitening, a powerful system that combines a powerful whitening gel and laser light energy to activate the whitening process. Patients can receive a smile up to six to seven shades lighter in about an hour, making it a great option for those who desire instant results. If you limit your dark-colored foods and beverages, results typically last about three to five years.
Deep Laser Teeth Bleaching
While most stains are caused by the foods and beverages we consume, the natural aging process, or certain lifestyle habits, such as smoking – discoloration can also be attributed to tetracycline antibiotics. If this medication was taken when you were younger or by your mother when she was pregnant, it can make teeth appear gray or light blue. This type of discoloration occurred as your teeth developed and affects teeth from the inside out. While it has long since been considered permanent and only able to be concealed with porcelain veneers, dentists are now able to reverse the affects with deep laser teeth bleaching. This treatment combines both at-home teeth whitening with in-office treatment to dramatically whiten teeth and remove stubborn dental stains. After two weeks of wearing your whitening trays overnight, you will come in for a high-powered whitening treatment to conclude the process. Unlike other whitening treatments, with routine home maintenance, deep laser bleaching results are considered long-lasting.
