What Is Teeth Whitening?
Choosing an Option
Our whitening agent can’t be purchased over the counter because of its strength. It removes stains in the enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way.
For our patients who prefer adhesive whitening strips, we offer Sheer White® brand strips, which are stronger than over-the-counter whitening strips. Our practice also offers advanced ZOOM Whitening that gives amazing results in a single office visit. Once the teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain the new smile.
What to Expect
We provide patients with a peroxide-based whitening agent they can put into the clear trays. An impression is taken to make a custom “tray” to hold the bleach against the teeth. In only a day or two, the custom whitening trays are made and ready for pickup.
Depending on our patient’s needs, we provide the material to either wear overnight or for three to four hours for up to two weeks. At the end of this time, patients will notice significant whitening. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant.
