Teeth Whitening

So you want Teeth Whitening?

Whitening your teeth is an effective way to remove stains and deep discoloration. Professional whitening is done quickly and easily in-office, preventing the need for strips, gels and trays that you’ll use for weeks at home. We use the Zoom! whitening system in our office. This system delivers superior whitening results in just one hour.

Why would you need Teeth Whitening?

Most of our patients want to whiten their teeth because they’re tired or embarrassed of having a dull, yellow smile. If you were a smoker for years but recently quit, you may be trying to improve your appearance by whitening your teeth. You may want to whiten your teeth because you’re getting married or will be attending another important event. Some patients just want to whiten their teeth because they’re ready to transform their appearance using a quick, noninvasive approach.

Who is a candidate for teeth whitening?

What makes you a candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Adult patients who have been to see the dentist at least once in the past year are good candidates for Zoom! whitening. The system takes one hour to fully complete, so you need to be able to commit this time in our office in order to have it done. You will have a consultation with our doctor prior to having whitening done. Whitening does not lighten restoration work like fillings, veneers or crowns.

What can you expect with Teeth Whitening?

Zoom! whitening takes about an hour in our office. You’ll first come in and be seated comfortably. Your lips and gums are kept separated from the teeth to prevent the whitening gel from being smeared. A whitening gel is then applied to the teeth and a bright light placed in your mouth to activate the ingredients. After a half hour, we’ll come in and remove the gel and apply a new layer of whitening paste. The light is put back into your mouth to accelerate results. After another 15 to 30 minutes, we’ll remove the gel and the dressings from your mouth to reveal a beautifully white smile.
