Get Brighter Teeth with Professional Whitening
In reality, it’s almost inevitable that your teeth will become stained. Over time, all the coffee and tea we drink and all the pizza and pasta we eat can add up. In fact, almost anything you eat and drink adds a little something to your smile. This happens gradually, but eventually, you become aware that your teeth aren’t “pearly whites” anymore.
Professional whitening remains one of the easiest ways to give a boost to your smile and your confidence. Our Zoom whitening treatments are stronger and more effective than the products in the toothpaste aisle. Whether you prefer in-office whitening or trays to take home, most patients notice significant improvements after a few sessions.
It’s time to take control of your oral care. Get rid of the stains, and let your smile brighten people’s days. At Drew Family Dentistry, we’ll help you discover which whitening option is best for you.
What are the benefits of teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening brightens your smile which can raise confidence, and help you appear healthier and happier, and younger—even more energetic. This can go a long way in improving your overall appearance and can sometimes be achieved in just one treatment.
Is teeth whitening safe?
In general teeth whitening is considered to be safe. Professional teeth whitening treatments are the safest option for your teeth. If you are using at-home teeth whitening solutions, it’s important to be careful not to overdo it. For abrasive whiteners, it’s important to not use them too often or too aggressively as this can damage your enamel. If using chemical whiteners, use strips that have a lower concentration of the chemical, and don’t leave them on for too long. This can cause tooth sensitivity and discomfort in the gums.
How is professional teeth whitening performed?
Our office currently offers two different types of professional whitening services: in-office and custom-made trays.
- In-office. These procedures start by covering up vulnerable areas inside the mouth, including the lips and gums, to prevent exposure to the peroxide. Then, we apply a high-concentrate hydrogen peroxide gel directly to the teeth and activate it. You will rest comfortably for a short time until the gel does its work. Then we remove the coverings and rinse the gel away.
- Custom-made trays. We will take a custom mold of your teeth to make clear trays that you take home, along with a whitening gel. These trays will help minimize the risk of whitening gel affecting your gums or mouth and you can whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home. All you have to do is place the whitening gel inside the trays and place the trays in your mouth.
