Tooth whitening or bleaching is a popular procedure to make teeth white and brighter. Bleaching can be used to lighten discolored teeth, or simply to enhance a dull smile. Tooth whitening is a safe and painless procedure. Our office offers two methods of whitening: Zoom in-office whitening and bleaching trays for at-home whitening.
Zoom in-office whitening is ideal for anyone wanting immediate results. The procedure takes place in our office in about one hour, and is the perfect choice for busy individuals and individuals needing quick results (weddings, reunions, etc). A light-activated gel is applied to your teeth, and a special light is used to enhance the action of this gel. We also take impressions of your teeth to create custom bleaching trays for you to take home and keep your smile bright. The result is usually dramatically whiter teeth that will last for years.
Take home bleaching trays are a less expensive whitening treatment that you can use while in the comfort of your own home to gradually whiten teeth. An impression of your teeth is taken to create a customized clear tray that you will wear each day for a minimum of 30 minutes. Typically, most begin to see significant results within 2 weeks.
