We’re dedicated to helping patients get the preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry services needed achieve and maintain picture-perfect smiles. Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic options available for good reason. The foods and drinks we consume daily lead to staining and discoloration of teeth even for those patients with the most diligent oral hygiene routines. The first step in brightening smiles is determining the underlying cause of discoloration. During a cosmetic dentistry consultation, a cosmetic dentist examines smiles, determines the causes of discoloration, and recommends whitening treatments that effectively brighten smiles.
At-Home Professional Teeth Whitening
While teeth whitening has quickly become popular in the US, many patients report experiencing sensitivity or discomfort during and after treatment. Some patients have overly large or numerous openings in the surface of teeth, known as tubules, they lead to the dental nerve in the center of teeth. This leads to increased sensitivity to peroxide, the active chemical ingredient in whitening agents. When high doses of concentrated whitening gel are applied to teeth during traditional, in-office whitening treatments, these patients experience severe discomfort. One way to reduce sensitivity from teeth whitening is to use less concentrated doses of whitening gel for shorter periods of time with at-home whitening. Take-home professional bleaching kits are also preferable for those patients who prefer to brighten smiles gradually over several weeks rather than all at once, and at-home whitening may be beneficial for those who are interested in touching up in-office whitening. We utilize the popular Zoom! in-office and take-home whitening treatments to ensure predictable, comfortable results.
Single Visit Teeth Whitening
Zoom! in-office whitening removes stains and brighten smiles quickly and effectively. Professional-grade whitening gel combined with led-lights to catalyze (accelerate) the chemical reaction are applied to teeth in the safety and comfort of our practice. When worn for about an hour, patients see results up to ten shades brighter in a single visit. In addition to offering immediate results, Zoom! in-office whitening allows our dentist and team to monitor effectiveness and comfort throughout application and treatment, and protect soft tissue which may be adversely affected by the oxidizing effects of carbamide or hydrogen peroxide in whitening gel. This ensures patients achieve their smile goals in optimal comfort.
