You may notice over time that the appearance of your teeth changes, and that your smile is no longer as bright as it used to be. This may occur for several reasons, including:
- Poor dental hygiene
- Tobacco usage
- Foods and drink that stain (tea, wine, coffee, soda, berries, mustard, etc.)
- The natural aging process
- Illness and the use of medications
- Fluorosis (excessive fluoride consumption, especially as a child)
Our skilled dentists provide ZOOM teeth whitening to brighten your teeth and help you regain a brilliant, beautiful smile. Teeth whitening, or teeth bleaching, is one of the simplest and most effective cosmetic treatments available, and can dramatically enhance your smile in as little as one appointment at our office. In fact, the ZOOM teeth whitening system has been known to brighten smiles up to eight shades in just one treatment session.
Professional whitening treatments utilize a powerful whitening gel. This gel is applied to the surface of the teeth, where it works to lighten stains, discoloration and yellowing on the tooth enamel. Whitening treatments are available both in-office and in take-home trays. In-office whitening sessions typically take 45 minutes to an hour, while at home whitening produces more gradual results over a period of several weeks.
