Teeth Whitening

Professional whitening performed by our office is considered to be the most effective and safest method. We are proud to offer two teeth whitening services: Zoom! and traditional, at-home whitening. These whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth.

Zoom! Whitening System

This in-office procedure uses an LED light and a hydrogen peroxide gel that is applied directly to the teeth. The light activates the gel which then breaks down the stains on the teeth. Patients can expect to see their teeth several shades lighter, which will last for over a year depending on your lifestyle (beverages like coffee and red wine and smoking can re-stain the teeth). We will also provide you will a free take-home touch up kit and custom made trays so you can touch up your whitening as you see fit.

Take Home Whitening Trays

We will fit you with custom made trays that you add a bleaching solution to and wear them at home. Depending on your whitening preferences, you wear the trays from 30 minutes to 2 hours or overnight every day for two weeks. This treatment should last up to 6 months.

Some commercially available "whitening toothpastes" can be somewhat effective at removing stains and making teeth a few shades brighter. However, many of these products have abrasive substances that can actually wear away your tooth's enamel.
