Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening
Despite regular brushing, flossing, and otherwise excellent oral care, many people still experience some degree of staining and yellowing on their teeth over time. This is often caused by a number of different factors, including the consumption of certain beverages (such as coffee, soda, and red wine), the use of tobacco products, and simply the natural aging process. Though over-the-counter solutions can sometimes provide decent results, professional teeth whitening treatments are generally much more effective. These advanced techniques utilize innovative technology and high-quality bleaching formulas to make the teeth significantly brighter. In fact, many professional teeth whitening solutions can make teeth up to eight or more shades lighter, and the final results are typically long-lasting.
The Teeth Whitening Procedure
At our practice, Dr. Beiting offers three teeth whitening treatments: Zoom!® Advanced Power, Zoom!® Advanced Power plus a prescription whitening gel, and prefabricated take-home trays.
Zoom!® Advanced Power
Zoom!® Advanced Power is an in-office treatment that employs a special whitening gel and low-intensity light energy. During treatment, Dr. Beiting will first apply the whitening gel to the surface of your teeth. She will then use light energy to activate the gel, enabling oxygen to penetrate into the dentin and enamel of your teeth. This action works to effectively bleach any discolorations while keeping the structure of your teeth unharmed. The results are virtually instantaneous.
Zoom!® Advanced Power with Prescription Whitening Gel
This advanced in-office technique is very similar to the Zoom!® Advanced Power treatment, but with the addition of a prescription-only whitening gel.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening Trays
If you prefer to whiten your teeth at home, Dr. Beiting will provide custom take-home trays for you to use at your own convenience. This at-home whitening technique involves trays that are to be worn for brief periods of time every day – or as instructed – until you have achieved the shade of white you desire. With this professional-grade option, you should be able to see noticeable results relatively quickly, and optimal outcomes can often be attained after just a couple weeks.
