Every smile is unique. Your teeth may take on stains quite easily, or they may take decades to show signs of aging. However, when you’re ready to invest in a brighter, more brilliant smile, talk to us about our professional teeth whitening options. We know how important it is for you to look and feel your best. Whether you’re looking for a quick way to whiten your smile or if you prefer to bleach your teeth at home, we offer teeth whitening options to fit everyone’s unique needs.
Immediate Whitening Results
ZOOM! Whitening is a system that drastically lightens your teeth within a single visit, often by up to eight or more shades. We will place a hydrogen peroxide-based gel on your teeth while protecting your gums. An advanced light technology system then activates the gel. The bleaching process takes approximately 45 minutes, and to maintain your smile’s brilliance, you can even opt for a take-home kit that allows you to whiten your teeth at home.
What If I Prefer to Whiten at Home?
Whitening at home is a slower process, but this is often beneficial for those who are sensitive to periods of long-term exposure to bleaching. Or, if you have a hectic schedule, you can simply fit your teeth whitening into your day at your convenience. Our team will first create custom-fit trays. You will then apply the instructed amount of gel into the bleaching trays and place them over your teeth for 10 to 14 days for approximately 1 hour a day.
Can’t I Just Use Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening Kits?
Over-the-counter teeth whitening kits may whiten your teeth up to a few shades, but the bleaching agents are nowhere near as powerful as those provided by professional whitening treatment. You may remove superficial stains, but the OTC products do not have the capacity to remove stains as deeply as our professional treatments.
Can I Eat and Drink as Usual After Teeth Whitening?
Because every smile is unique, each treatment comes with particular directions. In general, immediately after or during your treatment, you will need to avoid certain foods. Red wine, chocolate, coffee, and tea are among the more common offenders. You should also brush and floss regularly to maintain your smile’s brilliant appearance. In addition, brush and rinse your teeth after eating and drinking to reduce your chances of teeth staining.
