At-home or Tray Teeth Whitening Process
As with all procedures, your initial visit will start with a tour of our office and a personal discussion with Dr. Kosdon. During this time Dr. Kosdon will listen to your goals, answer any questions, and address any concerns that you may have. Following a full examination of your teeth, if at-home teeth whitening is the option you choose, Dr. Kosdon will take an impression of your teeth for your custom whitening trays. Once your custom teeth whitening trays have been fabricated, Dr. Kosdon will give you detailed instructions and a demonstration on how to apply the whitening gel and place the trays in your mouth. Then, all you will need to do is apply the whitening agent at home and you’ll be on your way to a white, vibrant smile. The at-home whitening will not only allow you to whiten your teeth at your leisure, but it will also give the flexibility of whitening your teeth to the perfect shade. Although this treatment is very effective and long lasting, you will able to keep your trays in case you ever wish to whiten your teeth again.
The Zoom® Teeth Whitening Procedure
Teeth discoloration can be caused by a variety of factors, including coffee and wine drinking, the use of tobacco, and the natural progression of age. However, Zoom® teeth whitening treatment can improve the yellowing and discoloration of teeth and give you a brighter, whiter smile. As with tray whiting, the Zoom® teeth whitening process begins with a thorough examination and a detailed discussion with Dr. Kosdon to go over your goals and options. The in office Zoom® procedure starts with the application of a whitening gel on the surface of your teeth. Dr. Kosdon will then activate the gel by shining a low-intensity light over the teeth. This process allows oxygen onto the teeth, effectively bleaching the teeth enamel and dentin and causing the teeth to turn a lighter shade.
Zoom® teeth whitening can lighten your teeth by six to ten shades or more in one quick office visit. The entire treatment typically takes only about an hour, and you should start to see results immediately after the procedure.
Dr. Michael Kosdon can give you that movie-star smile you’ve been dreaming of with Zoom® teeth whitening treatment. Contact our practice today with any questions you may have.
