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. Please see our before/after photos.
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. We use several methods to whiten our patients' teeth, including:
Zoom! In-Office Whitening System
If you're looking for a fast way to dramatically whiten your teeth, Zoom! In-Office Whitening System may be the answer for you.
In a little more than an hour, this safe and effective system can give you the instant results you've been wanting. 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 younger than 18.
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 always will 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.
We also use Opalescence Whitening to whiten teeth. This method involves applying a gentle, carbamide peroxide gel either in our office or at home using special,
custom made trays. The gel comes in three different flavors: mint, melon or regular. In one visit, we will apply the solution, wait for the allotted time and reveal your brighter, whiter smile.
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 then will see continued results in the next 10 to 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.
Veneers are thin, semi-translucent "shells" typically attached to your front teeth. Veneers are customized from porcelain material that is bonded to your teeth. Veneers are a great alternative to otherwise painful dental procedures to improve the appearance of your smile.
Common problems that veneers are used for:
- Spaces between the teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Unsightly, stained or discolored teeth
- Permanently stained or discolored teeth
- Crooked or misshapen teeth
Veneers are a great aesthetic solution to your smile that may even help you avoid orthodontic treatment. Subtle changes to your smile can be achieved with veneers, and in most cases, veneer application is completed in only two office visits.
Please contact our office if you have any further questions on veneers.
