Keeping our teeth their whitest is often challenging as we age and our smile is subject to common lifestyle habits. With all the coffee, wine, smoking, and other foods that have the ability to stain our teeth on a daily basis, even the whitest smile can become stained and darkened over time.
Cosmetic dentists in Nashua, New Hampshire, Dr. Vogel, and Dr. Levesque offer professional teeth whitening for a brighter smile. Teeth whitening is an excellent way to restore the natural color of your teeth or even make them whiter than your natural color if you would like.
A teeth whitening treatment can provide an instant, economical smile makeover to boost your confidence in your appearance. It is often the perfect solution for an upcoming wedding, reunion, or any other special event where you want to look and feel your best. A brighter, whiter smile is sure to boost your confidence.
Our dentists will evaluate the condition of your teeth and the source of your tooth stains or darkening to ensure that a teeth whitening treatment is the best solution for your needs. We offer alternatives for teeth whitening for patients with stains that are considered resistant to bleaching agents.
These can include dental crowns, tooth bonding, and porcelain veneers. These options will also offer a permanent result that is highly customizable to your needs.
Teeth Whitening What to Expect
Choosing the dentist for a teeth whitening treatment is the best way to ensure a consistent and safe result. We recommend that your teeth be cleaned before treatment for the best possible outcome.
To accomplish the whitening of your teeth at home, we utilize a professional tray whitening system. This tray whitening system is completed in 2 steps. The first step is to take impressions of your teeth.
With this impression, we’ll craft your custom whitening trays that you can use over and over again. Finally, you will take the whitening gel and put it in the gel for a short period of time over a period of a few days. This often results in a whiter smile of 4 – 8 shades!
Zoom Teeth Whitening
The Zoom Whitening procedure is simple and painless. The special gel was developed by Discus Dental, leaders in professional tooth whitening. The active ingredient in Zoom is pH-balanced hydrogen peroxide that, when activated by a special light, gently penetrates teeth to remove deep stains and discoloration.
For in-office whitening, we recommend patients start with a cleaning. Next, we prepare the mouth for the whitening procedure by isolating the lips and gums. The proprietary Zoom Whitening gel is applied to the teeth, which is activated by a specially designed light.
Zoom Whitening Results
Teeth typically become at least six to ten shades whiter – sometimes more! A five-minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure. You will be amazed by the results. In most cases, your teeth will continue to whiten in the first few days following the procedure.
Zoom Take-Home Whitening Trays
Some patients choose the convenience of at-home whitening trays. These are custom-made to fit precisely over your teeth. Patients who select in-office whitening also get take-home trays for a touch-up treatment.
