Discover Our Teeth Whitening Options
First off, when we get people that come to our office and they say, “I want to whiten my teeth.” The first thing I do is I give them an evaluation because sometimes whitening’s not going to help their teeth. I say, “Save your money.”
I can tell by looking at the enamel whether or not the discoloration that they’re seeing is an internal stain. Is their enamel a little more translucent than most? Meaning, you can see through to the underlying layer of the tooth structure called the dentin, which is often times very dark and gray or yellowish hue to them. We can whiten all day long and we won’t whiten those teeth.
Let’s say for instance, your teeth could benefit from whitening. We have several options. We do a custom made tray option where we make trays for your upper and lower teeth and you apply the gel yourself at home, at your convenience. It usually takes three or four days for you to see the improvement you’re looking for.
We also have Zoom Whitening. One of the best whitening systems available, where we can do it within forty-five minutes to an hour in our office. We have some people that say, “I don’t want to deal with the trays. I don’t want to be responsible for anything. I just kind of want you guys to do it and be done with it.” We sit you down, you can watch TV, you can listen to the radio. We get the Zoom Whitening going and in an hour your teeth can change shades by as much as seven shades. We can usually predict how well it’s going to go so we can give you an idea of what the end result’s going to be. Sometimes we’re surprised with how well it does go far and beyond where we thought it would go.
