Your smile is important to us. It's one of the first things you notice when you meet someone and you only have one chance to make a first impression. A whiter, brighter smile will make you feel better about yourself and will leave a great impression. Teeth whitening is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.
The most popular method is ZOOM® in-office teeth whitening system. If you want a dramatic and instantaneous result you should consider Zoom® in-office whitening system. You may have seen the Zoom® process used on ABC's Extreme Makeover. The process consists of a short set-up and then approximately 45 minutes whitening in the dental chair. Since teeth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth.
Teeth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up maybe needed every several years, and more often if you smoke, or drink coffee, tea, or wine.
This type of tooth whitening usually requires two visits. At the first appointment, impressions (molds) will be made of your teeth to fabricate custom, clear plastic, trays.
At your second appointment, you will complete your whitening procedure in as little as 1 hour. You will receive your custom-made applicator trays used to apply a desensitizing gel. They can also be used to "touch-up" your white smile for special occasions using the ZOOM® take-home whitening gel.
