Teeth Whitening Treatments
For over 15 years now we have offered Smile Brightening or “Bleaching”. There are two basic types of bleaching: Home and Chair side. The home technique is a slower (about 2 week) process of 4 hours per day. The ZOOM chair side in-office technique is completed in about an hour. It does cost more then the home bleach. This is because of the labor and practice resource intensiveness.
Since neither bleaching technique calls for a change in your diet or lifestyle, your teeth will undoubtedly stain up again (although not to the depth they had been). The benefit of the home bleaching is that you can perform your own touch-ups. So if you have an important event (i.e. date, wedding, dance, etc.) you can touch up for a couple of hours prior to the event and really freshen up your smile.
For those in a hurry, you really can’t beat the power bleaching. This is about an hour long, n house process that uses light activated bleaching gel and a special light to activate the gel. A special covering is placed on the gums to protect them. This is then followed with a take home process for future touch ups.
