Our office offers two options for whitening:
- Zoom2 Whitening System
- Home bleaching trays
Zoom2 Whitening System
The Zoom2 In-Office Whitening System is a scientifically advanced, patent pending, tooth whitening procedure. It’s safe, effective and fast, very fast. In less than two hours, your teeth will become dramatically whiter. Zoom2 in comparison to days of wearing trays or strips makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual.
Ideal patients should be in good health and free of decay and calculus. Yellow stains from aging, tobacco, dark cola, tea, coffee, and red wine will achieve the greatest success with this procedure. Those patients with gray shading from tetracycline or other medications may experience less dramatic rsults, but should expect improvement from this brief procedure. It is recommended that all patients receive an oral prophylaxis prior to their tooth whitening appointment.
As with any other tooth whitening product, Zoom2 will not lighten porcelain, composite, or any other restorative material. This system is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women. Patients with a strong gag reflex or anxiety may not be able to endure the entire procedure with retraction and isolation in place.
Home Bleaching trays
Our office also offers custom bleaching trays. These are to be used at home for about a week, or until you are satisfied with the shade of your teeth. The first visit, we take impressions to make your bleaching trays. Usually it takes a couple of days to have them ready for you to pick up. During the following appointment, you will receive your bleaching trays, the whitening gel, and instructions on how to use the product. You can use these trays in the future for touch-up, as long as you don’t have any major work done.
If you have any questions regarding the whitening, please contact our office.
