Dull Smile? There are a Couple Types of Teeth Whitening
July 19, 2018
If your teeth are making your smile look dull, there is a solution. Actually, there are two solutions. Teeth whitening can be done in the office for fast results, or you can use an at-home whitening kit for convenience and control. These two types of teeth whitening are available at a cosmetic dentist in Powell. Read on to learn more about each treatment option so you can decide which one is best for you.
Teeth Whitening with Zoom!
If you have a special occasion on the calendar this summer—a wedding, a high school reunion or a family get together—then choose to whiten your teeth quickly and safely with Zoom! This in-office teeth whitening system can give you a smile that is up to 10 shades whiter and brighter in a single one-hour visit.
While you sit back and relax in the dentist’s chair, Zoom’s bleaching gel is carefully applied to your teeth. Then, the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp activates and speeds the hydrogen peroxide whitening process. You’ll leave the dentist’s office with a smile that is camera ready for any occasion.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
Many patients prefer to whiten their teeth on their own schedule and in their own home. That’s fine, because there are now at-home teeth whitening kits that work just as well as an in-office system.
The kit you receive from your dentist will include custom-fitted mouth trays made from molds of your teeth. Using these keeps the bleaching solution on your teeth and away from sensitive gum tissue. And the whitening gel you receive will be just as effective as the solution used in the office.
All you have to do is fill the trays with the provided bleaching gel and wear them according to the your dentist’s instructions. Depending on how long the first treatment lasts, you may notice a difference right away. However, the most dramatic results usually happen after one to two weeks of whitening sessions.
Another advantage of at-home whitening is that you control how white you want your teeth to be. Once you’re satisfied, you can keep the remaining solution for whitening touch-ups as needed. At-home whitening kits are also great for touch-ups after an in-office treatment.
If you want to get your smile ready for any occasion—or just because—then contact a cosmetic dentist. A whiter and brighter smile can be yours soon!
