We all want a bright smile that we can be proud of, but we know that it can be difficult to maintain. Over time, our teeth naturally lose their shine and color and we may need other resources to help. We have teeth whitening procedures that have proven to be effective and our dentist will let you know which they think is best for you.
Below you will see the options this practice offers:
BriteSmile In-Office Whitening
This is an in-office system that uses a hydrogen peroxide mixture and the power of “cool blue” LED light to whiten your teeth up to eight shades lighter. First, the gum line is protected with an application of vitamin E. Then, the whitening gel is applied to the surface of the teeth. The gel is then illuminated by the LED light and this accelerates the whitening process of the teeth. This procedure is safe and won’t cause damage to your teeth. Our dentist has different concentrations in the event of sensitive teeth.
Take-Home Whitening Trays
This is an easy and cost-effective teeth whitening treatment that can be done in the comfort of your own home. You must follow the instructions given by our dentist to see the results at home. Although they can be a convenient option, obtaining great results can take longer than other treatments and they don’t always work well for deep stains. These trays are custom made to go over your teeth, and whiten your teeth through a special gel that is found on the inside of the trays.
Once the tray is made for you, the can then be taken home as a teeth whitening kit, along with the guidelines given by our dentist. The time period that they must remain on your teeth can vary according to your teeth whitening needs.
Opalescence™ Teeth whitening
Among the many teeth whitening procedures our dentist is capable of performing, Opalescence in-office teeth whitening treatment is highly recommended. The Opalescence teeth whitening treatment is perfect if you might be preparing for a big occasion. The Opalescence teeth whitening kit consists of the Opalescence teeth whitening gel containing fluoride and potassium nitrate, and a chemically activated light.

Zoom is a bleaching process widely used to lighten discoloration of enamel and dentin. Tooth discoloration may result from drinking coffee, tea, cola and red wine, or from smoking. The aging process also can stain and darken your teeth. The Zoom in-office tooth whitening procedure uses the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp – to accelerate the bleaching process – to activate the 25 percent hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. As the hydrogen peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin to bleach the stained substances, leaving the structure of the tooth unchanged.Read more about Zoom!
