A fresh, beautiful smile can not only have an effect on your overall appearance – for many people, it can be an essential factor to a healthy self-confidence and success in their careers. Cosmetic dentist Dr. Joseph G. Willardsen at True Dentistry offers state-of-the-art treatment options to reduce signs of yellowing and staining for results that can lighten your teeth by several shades. Whether you need to make a good impression in the modeling, entertainment, and business industries, or you would simply like to have a great-looking smile when you meet with friends, our in-office procedures and take-home kits can help you enhance the appearance of your teeth for whiter, brighter results.
Benefits of Teeth Whitening
A gradual yellowing or discoloration of the teeth can occur even when you have taken excellent care of your teeth. The natural process of aging, tobacco use, and years of drinking coffee or wine can all contribute to these effects. Professional teeth whitening options can significantly enhance the color of your teeth and give them a whiter, more refreshed appearance. They can be much more effective than over-the-counter treatments, and they often result in a lightening of the teeth by up to eight shades or more. Our in-office procedures are virtually painless and you can see the results right after treatment, while our at-home kits allow you the convenience of whitening your teeth on your own time.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
To help restore bright, gleaming smiles, we use the Zoom!® Teeth Whitening System. This easy, in-office cosmetic dentistry procedure takes about one hour to complete. A hydrogen-peroxide gel is carefully applied to the teeth and then activated by a patented, blue-spectrum light. This process allows for oxygen to penetrate the dentin and surface teeth enamel, effectively bleaching the teeth and giving them a whiter appearance. The procedure is often quick and comfortable, and the results are immediate. It will not harm your teeth, gums or dental work.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
As one of the most effective and popular cosmetic dentistry solutions available to our patients, the take-home teeth whitening kits enable you to brighten your smile in the privacy of your own home. You will be given a series of custom-made take-home whitening trays to apply to your teeth, as well as instructions on how to achieve the best results. The duration and frequency of the teeth whitening treatment will vary depending on the severity of the discoloration; however, many patients achieve noticeable results in a fairly quick period of time.
