Teeth whitening is a an excellent way to restore the natural color of your teeth and remove stains that have accumulated over time. To do this, we utilize the Philipps ZOOM procedure (in-office tooth whitening) and/or a tray whitening system (at-home tooth whitening). We recommend a combination of both to accomplish the best results. We advise that you treat any dental disease prior to whitening your teeth in order to avoid unwanted reactions.
When we whiten your teeth in the office, a whitening gel is applied onto your teeth. Then, we use the Philipps ZOOM lamp to shine a light onto your teeth for about 15 minutes. Depending on how much lighter you wish your teeth to be, and to obtain the best results, this process is repeated 3 to 4 times.
First, we make an impression of your teeth so we can create your personalized whitening trays. At home, you will apply a whitening gel into the trays and wear them daily for few hours a day. Treatment should total a week.
It is difficult to predict how much lighter your teeth will become as the results can vary with each person. In general, you can expect a very obvious change in the color of your teeth after 2-3 sessions, which will last for about 2-3 years depending on each patient’s life style (smoker, non smoker, coffee drinker etc).
Please contact us today to see if you are a candidate for this type of teeth whitening.
