Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple take home “bleaching” procedure or in office Zoom Teeth Whitening.
It’s safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to begin teeth bleaching. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much of each shows when you talk and smile.
In only a day or two your custom bleach splints will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear, almost invisible splints. With only a few hours of wear per day, our special teeth bleaching agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the brightness you want, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile. We’ll want to take “before and after” photos of your brilliant new smile.
Dental teeth whitening can be used to correct some tooth discolorations. These discolorations may have been caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful, “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice. But because of the low cost of bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a solid try.
• Corrects brown, yellow and mottled tooth staining
• Works on people of all ages.
• Is a near permanent solution for a “dull” smile,
restoring brightness and bringing a smile alive.
How Is It Done?
An impression is taken to make a specialized “mouthguard” or “stent” to hold the bleach against the teeth. The material is used each night for about 3-4 hours for one or two weeks, after which significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology offers improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or veneers may be more appropriate.
Over-the-counter tooth bleaching agents are available at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can harm the gums and teeth, it’s better to use products that are provided by the practice.
