Summertime is often accompanied with a busy schedule and many exciting events, therefore capturing those moments while looking our best is important.
Aunt Betty has to use photo shop to cover your coffee stained teeth?
No problem! You will love our one hour in-office whitening procedure. Whitening is an easy way to make your smile look healthier, more radiant, and beautiful.
What’s involved in teeth whitening? We will do Zoom! whitening which is a one hour, comfortable procedure done in our state of the art Darien dentist office. First, we will carefully cover all surrounding tissue and gums from the teeth to limit sensitivity and get the best results for you. The procedure begins with a short preparation to cover the lips and gums to limit sensitivity. Our team member with then apply the Zoom hydrogen peroxide whitening gel, which works together with the Zoom light to penetrate the teeth and break up stains and discoloration within your tooth. The gel remains in place for 15 minutes while the light is activated. During this time, you can relax, watch TV or listen to music. The gel is applied for three 15-minute sessions of light activation, for a total treatment time of 45 minutes.
Often, patients will finish their whitening procedure with teeth that are up to 8 shades whiter– a significant improvement. To help maintain the whitening effects of your Zoom teeth whitening treatment, we advise you to avoid certain foods and beverages, or consume them in moderation to avoid staining your teeth immediately after.
After your whitening is complete, we will provide you with your own custom whitening trays. These are used for touch ups to keep your teeth looking as good as when you finished. We will teach you how to do this effectively on your own so you can use them as needed. These will last years and continue to provide you with a gentle, safe, and effective way to whiten outside our office.
Another bonus? Hydrogen Peroxide- the main ingredient in our whitening gel kills bacteria! So you are helping your teeth while making them shine.
