Have you used whitening strips and whitening toothpaste to lighten your teeth? Were you unsatisfied with the results? If so, you likely have deep permanent tooth stains. Over time, with age and exposure to dark foods and drinks, teeth will become dull, yellowed, and stained. Fortunately, there is a simple remedy for brightening a smile. Our dentist offers in-office and take-home teeth whitening solutions to help you reclaim a white, vibrant smile.
Why Store Bought Products Disappoint Patients
Many of our patients inform us that they are disappointed with whitening products purchased at drug and grocery stores. The reason these products are not effective at removing deep, permanent stains is the fact that they only contain mild bleaching ingredients. In fact, most store-bought products only whiten teeth one to two shades by removing surface stains. These products lack the chemical strength to whiten teeth below the enamel surface.
How Professional Teeth Whitening Transforms a Smile
Unlike over the counter products, our practice utilizes clinical strength ingredients and technology to lighten teeth. We offer two convenient options for our patients: in-office teeth whitening with the Zoom! system and take-home whitening systems that come with custom trays and prescription whitening gel.
Zoom! in-office whitening involves coating the outer surfaces of teeth with a potent whitening gel and using a laser light to deepen the whitening process. With the help of the laser, one 45-minute whitening treatment can brighten a smile up to eight shades.
For patients who prefer to whiten their teeth at home, we offer a professional bleaching system that comes with comfortable trays and prescription strength whitening gel. This allows patients to whiten their smiles as they clean house, run errands, or watch television. Patients will apply the gel to the trays and wear the trays for about an hour each day. In ten to twelve days, patients will achieve a much whiter smile.
