Are your teeth looking dull? Are they stained from years of drinking coffee? Are you embarrassed by the way your teeth look? We can help. Most adults believe that a smile is an important social asset. The teeth whitening process removes yellow staining from aging, tobacco, dark colas, coffee, tea, and red wine.
There are two options for whitening your teeth, in-office power whitening (ZOOM!™) and at-home whitening. Both approaches use a gel containing a high concentration of hydrogen peroxide.
The ZOOM!™ whitening process is done in the office and takes about 90 minutes. The teeth to be whitened are isolated and a concentrated gel of hydrogen peroxide is placed on them and the ZOOM!™ light is turned on. With the at-home process, custom-fitted trays are used to hold the gel of hydrogen peroxide against your teeth which you leave in your mouth for a few hours.
Many patients wear the trays while sleeping and actually bleach their teeth during the night. With both systems, Dr. Eric Levine recommends the use of the trays so that you can ‘touch-up’ the whitening in the future.
