Teeth Whitening

It is hard to not be jealous of the celebrities with their dazzling white teeth and their brilliant smiles. Remember, however, that these celebrities are, more than likely, receiving professional teeth whitening on a regular basis. As you age, the enamel on your teeth eventually becomes yellowed due to certain beverages, foods, and smoking. Once your teeth become discolored and aren’t the beautiful white color you want, it is easy for you to begin to look older than you are. Fortunately, teeth whitening services are readily available and simple to perform.

There are three primary forms of teeth whitening that can be used. These include:

  • Whitening trays that can be used at home
  • Whitening strips that can be purchased in any drug store
  • One-hour zoom treatments in the dentist’s office

Whitening systems that can be bought over the counter at a drug store are perfectly fine for mild discoloration. However, if you have significant yellowing on your teeth, you will be far better off using a professional two-phase teeth whitening process. The first phase of the whitening treatment will be to come into our dental office to receive a zoom treatment. The treatment will be performed by us and will last for one hour. We utilize a combination of light and whitening materials to expedite the process. We will also use this appointment to make a precise mold of your teeth. This information will help us to provide you with teeth whitening trays that contain whitening gel. This will allow you to continue whitening your teeth from the comfort of your own home whenever you feel you need a touch-up.
