Teeth whitening is one of the most important steps you can take in improving the cosmetic appearance of your smile. Though the colouring of your teeth is not necessarily an indication of their health, no one really wants yellowed, dingy teeth in their mouths. With the help of proper teeth whitening products and methods, we can help to restore your brilliant white smile again.
Why See a Dentist?
One of the questions we often receive is why a patient should get teeth whitening from a professional instead of purchasing a kit from the local drug store. We highly recommend coming in to the dentist. Our products and techniques are:
- Provide longer-lasting results
- And are far easier for you to manage
If you want a natural white shade that feels good, you will benefit from the products we offer. Keep in mind that we do use various types of products depending on your specific needs.
Will This Fix My Oral Health Problems?
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure. This means it is unlikely to fix any oral health concerns. However, we can do that for you, too. Unlike over the counter products, our teeth whitening products come with our professional, dental service that creates a whole-mouth healthy smile.
What Is Zoom! Whitening?
One of the popular treatment options for teeth whitening is the use of ZOOM! It could be right for you. This method lightens your teeth immediately. The process takes about an hour in our office. We can use it to brighten your teeth several shades to a natural white.
In this process, we will cover your lips and gums properly and then apply a gel to the teeth. A special light is then positioned over the teeth. This activates the gel. The gel then works its way into your teeth, removing stains and any discoloration present. Within an hour, you will have a brilliant white smile or at least one that is significantly brighter.
Is Teeth Whitening Right for Me?
If your teeth are yellowed, darkened, stained or have areas of discoloration, then teeth whitening can be a very good thing. When you come in for a consultation, we will work with you to determine if ZOOM! whitening or other products are right for you. Keep in mind that you should have a full dental cleaning prior to this.
