Whitening Same Day As Your Dental Appointment

Zoom Whitening

In just 45 minutes, Philips Zoom can brighten your smile up to eight shades whiter. This chairside procedure utilizes a light to activate a whitening solution, leaving you with instant results that last approximately a year. It is important to bear in mind that your genetics and habits, such as consuming certain foods and beverages that have staining properties, may lessen your results over time. For less than an hour visit to the dentist, you can have a procedure that lasts for approximately a year. The speed of this procedure is great when you have to worry about work, taking care of your family, and various other responsibilities.

Depending on the specific case, there are various procedures used to complete the “extreme makeover.” People with crowded teeth would benefit from porcelain veneers, which is tooth-colored porcelain bonded directly to the teeth. Bonding is also used to improve chipped and/or misaligned teeth. If a person has spaces between teeth, a dentist may apply a custom-made, tooth-colored material called composite resin. For discoloration or staining, there are a myriad of whitening products to give a person that brighter smile. Whatever a person’s situation or budget, there are several options that a Great Expressions Dental Center dentist has to improve your smile. Cosmetic dentistry doesn’t only make you look better, it makes you feel better.

Because of the options available today, you can have your whitening completed in a one- to two-hour visit at the dental office, or in a one- to three-week period using one of the convenient take-home products. There are several options and it’s best to discuss your expectations with your Great Expressions Dental Center dentist, who can help you decide on which method will be right for you. All bleaching or whitening will require touch-up treatments in the future to maintain your bright, new smile.

Depending on your current shade, you can achieve results of up to eight shades lighter in one office visit, or you can whiten your smile up to five shades lighter in the comfort of your own home (using Discus Nite White or Crest Whitestrips). All teeth tend to pick up new stains over time. To maintain your results, a touch-up may be required periodically. Great Expressions Dental Centers offer all of these options, and there is sure to be one in your price range.

To find out which method is best for you, contact one of our highly qualified Great Expressions dentists located near you and request an appointment today at a dentist’s office near you.
