Tooth bleaching helps remove stains and discoloration and lightens teeth. It’s one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures and can greatly improve how your teeth look. It’s not a one time procedure; it must be followed up on from time to time. The most common reasons for teeth to get yellow or stained are using tobacco, drinking dark colored liquids, and not taking good care of your teeth. Also, aging makes teeth look less bright because the enamel gets thinner and the dentin becomes darker. For some patients we recommend Zoom-Advanced Power, a fast and proven method to brighten teeth by eight to 10 shades in less than one hour. After your dental examination, we will decide if you are a good candidate for Zoom bleaching. Patients love the immediate results. We also offer ‘take home’ whitening systems. Our kits use comfortable custom-made trays for your teeth which will gradually lighten them with long lasting effects. We can also suggest less expensive options for simple touch-ups. Proper care during and after bleaching is paramount: We insist that our patients heed our recommendations for post-treatment follow-up.
