Many avoid dentists because they don’t feel comfortable with someone working on their teeth, which is natural. Others avoid the dentist because they don’t like the cost.
For those on a tighter budget, teeth whitening is one of the best options for improving a smile. Teeth get discolored over time, and it can be such a gradual process that a person’s smile is totally dull before they notice a problem.
Advances in whitening technology provide quick, safe options that lighten teeth multiple shades. Whiter teeth really can give a person a reason to smile, which makes life a lot better.
ZOOM! Whitening System
Our favorite in-office whitening system is ZOOM!. In about an hour, most patents will see their smiles brighten by eight shades, which is incredible. The procedure is very customizable, with high, medium and low settings for those with varying sensitivities. Before the procedure begins, we determine the best shade for your smile, and create a plan for achieving your goals.
The procedure is safe and non-invasive. Careful precaution is taken to protect the lips, face, gums and tongue. There are three 15-minute cycles in a visit.
Will It Last?
Yes, and you’ll be happy with the results. We also have custom trays that can be worn on your own time to brighten your smile. Dental impressions are taken to create the perfect whitening trays for your mouth. We also have whitening strips that can be applied at home.
Consult with Dr. Gleave about ways you can make sure the whitening process is the most effective. He may recommend you avoid certain foods or smoking. Ideally it’s best to have a tooth cleaning a couple weeks before, so the whitening process has the best effect.
