To improve the appearance of your smile, Dr. Whiteman can use the popular Zoom!® teeth whitening system. Ths in-office treatment begins with the application of special guards that protect the soft tissues of your mouth. Next, a powerful whitening gel is applied to the surfaces of your teeth. The effects of the whitening gel are intensified by a special light to effectively break down the deep stains in your enamel. This simple minute treatment can dramatically and immediately improve the appearance of your smile. You can walk out of our office enjoying immediately apparent results, with your teeth appearing even whiter in the coming weeks.
The Zoom!® take-home kits offer customized convenience and stunning results. Your dental tray is personalized to ensure that it fits snugly onto your teeth. These trays are filled with a highly-effective whitening gel that contains a milder bleaching formula, so you can use it without the immediate supervision of a dental professional. You can wear the trays in the comfort of your own home, allowing you to undergo treatment at your convenience. These at-home treatments offer results that are similar to in-office treatments. The effects of treatment become apparent quickly, with the most pronounced results evident within a couple of weeks.
Maintaining Your Whiter Smile
Whether you choose at-home or in-office treatment, both options include supplies and instructions to help you maintain the results of your treatment. In fact, many patients who choose in-office treatment also receive take-home whitening trays. If you have sensitive teeth, Dr. Whiteman will also give you relief gel to minimize any discomfort.
Internal Bleaching for Single Discolored Teeth
Sometimes a root canal or other factors can cause the inside of a tooth to become stained. In such cases, the stain is not caused by the usual food, drinks or tobacco use. Dr. Whiteman uses an internal bleaching treatment to brighten the color of the tooth and provide a natural-looking enhancement. During this procedure, a small hole will be drilled to access the inner chamber of the tooth and a bleaching agent is placed directly inside the tooth. If internal bleaching is not appropriate for your case, intrinsic stains can also be obscured with a porcelain veneer.
