Teeth Bleaching

Perhaps the simplest and most frequently used technique to beautify teeth is Teeth Bleaching.

Today, we find a plethora of products which can be used to whiten teeth.  Since these products are among the most used, they are also among the most abused products in dentistry.

Enamel is the hardest substance in the human body; however, microscopically it is very porous.  What people often fail to realize is that the bleaching process opens up those enamel pores on tooth surfaces to accept the bleaching liquid.  While bleaching, therefore, it is most important that dark liquids do not come in contact with bleached enamel.  Yes, coffee, tea, wine, huckleberry sauce, even apple juice, can stain (or darken) these bleached surfaces.  For  approximately two weeks following a bleaching period, avoid liquids, sauces, etc., with color.

In our office, we use Zoom! Advanced Power ® the very latest in-office teeth whitening system.  We can lighten most people’s teeth in about an hour or less with long-lasting results.

Teeth bleaching has never been safer, faster, or more effective than with Zoom! Advanced Power ®.

Brighten your smile today!
