Professional Teeth Whitening vs. Whitestrips
You can find a number of whitening treatments at the grocery store or pharmacy, but these treatments are simply unable to reveal the dazzling results patients achieve when they partner with their dentist. A professional-strength whitening solution offers far more powerful whitening, and your dentist also puts together a customized treatment/trays to protect your soft oral tissues from coming into contact with the powerful gel.
What’s more, professional teeth whitening is activated right before you use it, as opposed to whitestrips or other over-the-counter treatments which may have been collecting dust on the shelf for weeks or months. Partnering with your dentist also reduces the chances that you will overuse the whitening gel and put your tooth enamel at risk -- a common side effect of whitestrips.
With Zoom! Whitening, we can brighten your smile up to eight shades in about an hour. We will cover up your gums, tongue, lips, anything that’s not your teeth, then paint the gel on the surface of each tooth. Then, the Zoom! Whitening solution is activated under a special light in three, 15 minute intervals. At the end of the treatment, we will remove the solution and give you the first peek at your new, dazzling smile. Take good care of your teeth, maintain proper dental hygiene, and stay away from the foods, beverages, and tobacco products that cause stains, and you can enjoy your sparkling results for many years to come. Apply a periodic touch-up to renew the whitening.
Would you prefer to brighten your smile from the comfort of your own home, over the course of about two weeks? Then a take-home whitening treatment may be best for you. Unlike an over-the-counter treatment, this option is custom-fitted for your unique dentition. The plastic trays hold the bleaching gel right up against the surface of your teeth for maximum whitening. Simply fill the trays up with the gel every evening for about two weeks. You will start to notice some whitening almost immediately -- continue treatment for maximum results.
