Everybody loves a bright white smile, and there are a variety of products and procedures available to help you improve the look of yours. Many people are satisfied with the sparkle they get from brushing twice daily with a fluoride-containing toothpaste, cleaning between their teeth once a day and the regular cleanings at your dentist’s office. If you decide you would like to go beyond this to make your smile look brighter, you should investigate all of your options. You can take several approaches to whiten your smile, including at-home bleaching, or in office whitening in just over an hour using blue light technology.
Tooth Whitening – In Office Tooth Whitening: Advanced Zoom Whitening
Dr. Stavro uses a tooth whitening procedure by Advanced Zoom Whitening. Advanced Zoom Whitening is one of the safest, quickest and most effective techniques in tooth whitening available today. During the Advanced Zoom Whitening procedure the teeth are coated with a whitening gel that contains balanced hydrogen peroxide. The teeth are then exposed to a light that activates the whitening process. The tooth whitening procedure usually takes an hour and dramatically whitens teeth.
At-Home Tooth Whitening
At-home tooth whitening takes longer than in-office tooth whitening, but can have equally effective results. In our office, molds are taken of the patient’s teeth. These molds are made into mouth guards that serve to hold whitening gel, and at the same time protect the gums and lips. At-home whitening treatment is done during the day or during the night for about two weeks.
