There are a couple of excellent ways to whiten your teeth.
You can use the dentist-supervised tooth whitening technique, with the custom-made tray, where we provide you with the materials and you perform the treatment yourself at home.
If you want faster results, you can use the power whitening technique in the office. We will do most of the work for you, and you will leave the office with teeth that are several shades lighter.
We use the Zoom tooth whitening system from Discus Dental. In one appointment, your teeth can be dramatically whiter. It’s a simple process. Here are some pictures to show you how it works:
Step 1: We place a retractor to hold your lips away from your teeth, and we’ll place a napkin to cover your lips.
Step 2: We place a coating over your gums to protect them, and then the Zoom whitening gel is placed on your teeth.
Step 3: You sit under the Zoom light for a few minutes.
Then you’re done and ready to enjoy your beautiful white smile!
We will then give you a set of custom made clear trays to continue the whitening process at home. Otherwise, the brightness will fade away. Wear the trays with the bleaching gel for a certain period of time each day, and your teeth will be permanently lighter.
While bleaching is a permanent treatment, your teeth do tend to continue to pick up stains from food and drink throughout your life. Save your trays and your left-over gel, and about once a year use them to touch up your teeth to maintain that beautiful white appearance.
