We're convinced that a bright, beautifully shaped smile has a direct impact on your self-confidence, your relationships, and your outlook on life in general. And with the tremendous advances in dental science over the past several years, there's no reason why you can't have that kind of smile. So whether it's a little bit of lightening, straightening, shaping, or a full mouth rehabilitation that's needed, we're equipped to create a 'personally perfect' smile that you can use with confidence. When you visit us, we'll be glad to provide you with clear options and detailed previews of exactly how we'd proceed to accomplish it.
Take Your Smile From Average to Dazzling Many people desire a brighter, cleaner, more attractive smile, but have chipped, stained, discolored, unevenly spaced, or even slightly crooked front teeth. If this sounds like you, we will be glad to help evaluate your specific situation, listen to the exact changes you have in mind, and show you examples of the end result, before any treatment is performed. Often, porcelain veneers can provide a completely improved and dazzling smile in just a few appointments. The actual treatment usually involves only two visits.
The number of pre-operative visits, to work out details to insure predictable results, depends on the complexity of your situation and the changes you desire. There usually is a follow up visit or two for final adjustments and polishing, and to review instructions for care of your new smile to insure it lasts years and years. Dentist Supervised Tooth Whitening Can Give You The Smile You Always Wanted Anyone can have the confidence that a bright, white smile can give you these days.
Tooth whitening is safe, effective and long lasting. There are two main methods to get excellent results. We can provide a custom Home Tooth Whitening Kit, or teeth can be whitened in the office. Each has different advantages, and each addresses different situations. Simply talk with us about your concerns and what you want to achieve, and a dazzling whiter smile can be yours. If you are thinking of other cosmetic improvements, such as crowns, porcelain veneers, or just replacing old discolored fillings, it may be worth considering whitening your teeth first, and any restorations we make for you can be matched to the whitened teeth, to give an overall great result.
The Zoom! In-Office Whitening System is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It's safe, effective and fast - very fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. Zoom! Whitening is ideal for anyone looking for immediate results. The convenience of Zoom! in comparison to days of wearing trays and gradual whitening makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual. Get ready to Zoom! The Zoom! Whitening procedure is simple and painless. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. Then the proprietary Zoom! Whitening Gel is applied, which is activated by a specially designed light.
Teeth typically become at least six to ten shades whiter, sometimes more. A five-minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure. You will be amazed with the results! In most cases, your teeth will get even whiter the first few days after the procedure. How Zoom! Works The Zoom! Light-activated gel was developed after years of research by Discus Dental, the leaders in professional take-home tooth whitening. The gel is a scientifically formulated, pH balanced hydrogen peroxide that, when activated by the Zoom! light, gently penetrates the teeth to remove deep stains and discoloration. With proper care and an occasional touch-up at home, your whiter smile will sparkle for years.
