Teeth Whitening

What Is Teeth Whitening?

Most of us want the sparkling glow of youth and health that’s reflected in a bright, white smile. But during our lives, our teeth are stained and discolored. This outcome can be a direct result of our habits like smoking, chewing tobacco, tea/coffee drinking, and poor maintenance of oral hygiene u2013 which can all cause the staining of teeth.

Cosmetic dentistry has developed techniques and procedures to safely and quickly return and enhance the brightness of your smile. Modern dentistry offers teeth whitening solutions to bring back the pearly glow of your teeth. At Smiles Dental Group, we provide several options to polish and whiten your teeth. You can either visit our clinic to receive in-office whitening services from our dental team or consult our general dentists for fabrication and advice regarding the best use of at-home custom teeth whitening kits.

Professional Teeth Whitening

At Smiles Dental Group, we use in-office Zoom whitening. This method takes up to an hour and can make your teeth 8-10 shades whiter! It works by having the patient hold a bright, blue LED light in their mouth that will shine on their teeth. Are you skeptical about the effectiveness of light to whiten teeth? We use it because it has been scientifically proven to work. 

How Does Zoom Teeth Whitening Work?

If you shine a blue LED light into your mouth, nothing will happen, believe us we tried. Zoom whitening works by using a activation agent that is applied to the teeth. This agent comes in the form of a gel, which is activated by the light which then starts the whitening process.

Whether you have discolored teeth because of your lifestyle or any other reason, we at Smiles Dental Group can whiten your teeth using effective in-office or take-home treatments to brighten your smile.

The popularity of our teeth whitening procedure is evident to many of our patients. Depending on the severity of discoloration and your overall oral health, our general dentists will recommend the most suitable and appropriate treatment system to help ensure noticeably whiter teeth.
