Any smile looks more beautiful when teeth are sparkling white. However, coffee, soft drinks, tea, and tobacco can leave dark stains behind on the teeth which can make a smile look less than dazzling. Our practice offers several teeth whitening options, including Zoom!® in-office system and custom take home trays, which can help you restore your gleaming smile.
It’s safe to use and only requires a short amount of time. You may choose to lighten all of your teeth or only your upper or lower ones, depending on how much of your teeth you show when you talk and smile.
Dental bleaching can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. In some cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be more effective. Dr. Kreitzberg will help you figure out which course would be the most effective for your teeth.
Zoom!® teeth whitening system is an in-office teeth whitening treatment that can quickly and easily create dramatic results.
For the quickest results, we recommend in-office bleaching. During this procedure, a barrier is placed over your gum line. Then a professional-strength bleaching solution is applied to the teeth. This system utilizes a special light to activate a professional strength teeth whitening gel and removes stains and discoloration in just one hour long visit. The results are noticeably whiter and brighter teeth.
After the procedure is complete, we will give you a set of bleaching trays to take home to help maintain your newly whitened smile.
An alternative to in-office bleaching is at home whitening.
An impression is taken to make a specialized molded plastic guard that will fit only your teeth. You wear these trays daily or nightly for the instructed time given.
We provide you with a bleaching agent that is placed inside the trays. They may be worn for 7-10 days or until the color desired is achieved. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile.
