Great Teeth Whitening Treatments

During the last years, Teeth whitening procedures have become an increasingly popular solution for a brighter smile, as daily consumption of coffee, wine, and other products that damaged teeth has risen. Moreover, finding procedures that work effectively to bring back a beautiful white smile has become a priority for many people.

In this article, we will be looking at different teeth whitening procedures, which have proven to be highly effective, both for maintaining teeth health and delivering that gorgeous white smile that you want.

Take-Home Trays

What makes over-the-counter teeth whitening kits so popular is that they can be done at home. These trays are available for both sensitive and non-sensitive teeth. Each teeth whitening kit consists of impression trays and teeth whitening gels. These "take-home trays" are engineered for anyone to use and come with instructions on how to perform the procedure yourself. However, it is still important to consult our dentist so that the correct teeth whitening take-home kit is given to you. 

Custom whitening trays are trays that are usually made of a clear plastic that comfortably adjust when inserted. A special gel is inserted in each tray, giving them their whitening properties. The gel consists of a hydrogen peroxide solution that actively whitens the enamel of the teeth. They are also great for our patients who are on-the-go and need a more flexible way to do a teeth whitening treatment as well as for those who have never done one and would like to start by using this method. Our dentist will go through the steps in-office and review what to do to maximize your treatment.

Zoom!

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.

While the teeth whitening procedures mentioned in this article certainly work and have been proven to be effective, they are meant to accompany a good oral hygiene regime. It is very important to always maintain proper oral hygiene. This not only helps you get naturally whiter teeth over time, but it also maintains the results of your teeth whitening treatment and prevents stains from developing or darkening.

Always consult with our dentist before deciding on any of teeth whitening procedures mentioned above.
