When people are asked what they would like to change most about their smile, many indicate that they wish they had whiter, brighter teeth. This is true even among those who have practiced good oral hygiene throughout their lives.
Tooth discoloration and yellowing can be caused by several factors, including medications, smoking, or drinking beverages such as tea, coffee, or wine. Fortunately, there are effective, affordable teeth whitening options available from your neighborhood dental office.
What are my Treatment Options?
After consulting with one of our dentists, you may be offered your choice of an in-home or in-office whitening treatment. Your dentist will be happy to listen to your concerns and answer any questions that you might have.
What is the Process Like?
It depends on the products and treatment protocol chosen by your dentist. ZOOM! Whitening, for example, incorporates the use of a lightening gel that is applied to your teeth, and then the use of a special light. Another option is Opalescence Xtra Boost, a 38% hydrogen peroxide bleaching gel designed for whitening without the use of a light. Depending on the condition of your teeth, you may have to undergo more than one in office treatment. In addition, your dentist may provide you with an in-home kit for touchups.
Our professional home whitening systems begin with customized trays made from impressions of your teeth. You’ll bring these trays home, along with a professional strength whitening solution and full instructions. Our office professionals are happy to answer any questions you may have at the time that you receive your trays, or by phone.
What About Costs?
We are committed to providing excellent cosmetic dentistry services that are also gentle on your wallet. Our specially trained coordinators will help you determine your best and most affordable option to meet your treatment goals. This may include your dental insurance, our in-house value or discount plan, major credit cards, and financing options.
