Everyone wants a bright, white smile. Teeth whitening services are growing in popularity, and it’s one of the most requested services offered by our practice. Everyone sees the growing consumer market focused on whiter teeth. The reality is that over-the-counter, “too good to be true” solutions typically don’t work.
Unfortunately, your teeth will darken over time. We offer a variety of options to whiten your teeth to combat the changes in the color of your teeth. This discoloration can be caused by factors such as the food and beverages you consume, like coffee, tea and soda. Other known factors for discoloration may include childhood medications or illnesses, tobacco use or improper oral hygiene. Restoring your natural white smile is a priority for our dental whitening team.
We are trained professionals using industry-approved methods. Our goal is to meet the needs of every patient, and every patient’s needs are different.
One of the methods we use is the Zoom!® In-Office Whitening System. A specially designed light activates the Zoom!® Whitening Gel to gently break down stains on your teeth to put the sparkle back in your smile!
Zoom!® Whitening is very safe while under the supervision of a trained dentist. It is one of the safest procedures in cosmetic dentistry. However, we do not recommend this procedure for pregnant women or children under age 13.
You will be given some post-whitening care instructions after your procedure. It is important to maintain a good oral hygiene regimen post-whitening to preserve your bright, white smile. We also recommend occasional touch-ups with the Zoom!® Take-Home Gel. Your smile will always be brighter than it was before the procedure, but by following these simple instructions, you can retain your results for a long time!
Although the Zoom!® System can help almost anyone, it may not be as effective in every case. We can determine if tooth whitening is a possible option for your case.
Day White and Nite White
We proudly offer Day White and Nite White take-home whitening systems by Discus Dental.
There are many causes for tooth discoloration, but most patients can benefit from tooth whitening. If your teeth are healthy and unrestored, these products from Discus Dental may be an ideal option for you.
The Day White system can effectively whiten your teeth when it’s most convenient for you, whether you’re sitting at home watching TV or driving to work. In only 30 minutes twice a day, you can have the bright, white smile you’ve always wanted. Often, patients see results immediately and will reach their desired results after continuing the system for 10-14 days. The Day White Gel is filled in your custom-fitted tray that fits over your teeth. The active ingredient in the gel is hydrogen peroxide, which is proven to safely whiten teeth under the supervision of a trained dentist.
Much like the Day White system, the Nite White system can whiten you teeth at your convenience. Generally, patients will wear the custom-fitted tray with the Nite White gel while they sleep or for a few hours during the day. Patients will start seeing results after the first night of wear and will see continued results in the next 10-14 days while continuing with the process. The active ingredient, carbamide peroxide, is proven to be safe for teeth and gums while successfully whitening your smile.
