TEETH WHITENING

There are many teeth whitening options on the market today. Sometimes it can be overwhelming to decide the whitening option to fit your lifestyle. There are plenty of over-the-counter whitening systems on the market and while many people think this is the best, and most affordable option, they don’t realize the commercial whitening procedures aren’t as strong or effective as professional treatments from a dental office. It can become costly to purchase the over-the-counter products because they aren’t as concentrated and you end up using them more frequently. In our office we offer two different whitening options.

There are plenty of over-the-counter whitening systems on the market and while many people think this is the best, and most affordable option, they don’t realize the commercial whitening procedures aren’t as strong or effective as professional treatments from a dental office. It can become costly to purchase the over-the-counter products because they aren’t as concentrated and you end up using them more frequently. In our office we offer two different whitening options.
Our in-office whitening procedure is called ZOOM whitening. ZOOM is a 60-90 minute procedure in which we apply a special paste all over your gum area.This isolates your gums from the whitening gel. We let that harden and then apply the professional ZOOM bleach gel to your teeth. We then direct a UV-light on to your teeth. The UV-light, combined with the power of the whitening gel, will rid your teeth of most stains and get them to your brightest possible white. We do two to three sessions at the appointment, each session adding a different strength whitening bleach to your teeth. Like any bleach process, you’ll want to refrain from eating foods with rich colors. Opt for neutral colored foods with no added dyes, such as bread, milk, fish and chicken for a few hours so your teeth have a chance to rehydrate without absorbing the colorful foods that could possible stain your newly whitened teeth. ZOOM whitening is very fast and the up-keep is minimal. Often patients feel they only need ZOOM every few years, which makes it very affordable at $299.00.
We also offer the option of whitening at home. Initially you’d come in to the office for an impression of your teeth. With that impression, we create custom whitening trays and provide you with professional bleach. Inside the trays, on each individual tooth, you’ll put small drops of bleach onto the face surface of each tray. Depending on the patient and their sensitivity to bleach, they can choose to bleach their teeth for seven to ten days. Wearing the trays each day for 30 minutes at a time, and no more than 60 minutes, is very important for the bleach to work properly and the results to be successful. Just like ZOOM and any other whitening procedures, you’ll also want to opt for light colored foods so your dehydrated teeth don’t absorb the possible dyes. If during the seven to ten day regimen your teeth become sensitive patients are ok to skip a day to reduce the bleaching time on their teeth. After each bleach session you’ll clean the trays by brushing them out. Home whitening is convenient for those who are busy and would rather bleach in the comfort of their own home. Bleaching at home is also a very inexpensive option at $50.00. If you have questions about the whitening options we provide, or concerns about any over-the-counter products, call us anytime. We are confident you will be very happy with the whitening offered in the office. To schedule whitening appointments, or a consultation for whitening, call our office at 801-785-8308.
