What Teeth Whitening options are available?
There are many products and techniques available for patients who want to achieve a brighter smile, and with so many options available, it can be difficult to choose the method that is right for you. We offer two ways to brighten your smile.
Tray bleaching is a type of professional whitening that uses custom-made trays and whitening gel only available through your dentist. The whitening gel is placed in custom-fitted trays that fit perfectly over your teeth. Moulds are taken of your teeth and sent to the lab. The lab then fabricates your custom whitening trays. The teeth whitening process can be done during the day or at night while you sleep. The whitening process generally takes 10 to 14 days. You can subsequently refresh the whitening of your teeth.
The Zoom Chairside Light-Activated Gel accelerates and enhances the whitening process. The gel and light work together gently to break up the stains on your teeth, while leaving the structure of your teeth unchanged. After just three 15-minute applications in one hour, you rinse and the treatment is complete, leaving you with a brighter, whiter smile.
Almost anyone can benefit from teeth whitening, though the treatment may not be as effective for some as it is for others.
Success depends on your daily habits such as tobacco smoke or whether you drink dark colas, tea, coffee, or red wine. If your teeth have gray shading from tetracycline or other chemicals, you may still see improved results, though they may be less dramatic.
