Our Dental Whitening Treatments
Teeth Whitening comes in many forms, and individuals who would like to have a white, glistening and spotless set of teeth have several options to choose from. Some of those options are for regular teeth whitening which takes a bit of time to show clear results, and some are more drastic, which can produce results in a single short session of whitening. Then there are some technologically advanced ones, which produce great results without damaging the teeth.
In this article, we will be taking a look at distinct teeth whitening procedures, which have proven highly effective and efficient, both in terms of maintaining teeth health and delivering that gorgeous white smile that you want.

Laser teeth whitening is administered in a dental office exclusively, and is the most expensive method for whitening. All forms of teeth whitening work by releasing oxygen ions from a tooth whitening gel, which gently lift stains from the teeth. The laser simply lifts the stains faster. Another advantage of the laser is that (depending on the type of laser used) it can more easily be used to bleach one tooth at a time. This is helpful when one tooth is more discolored than the surrounding teeth.Read more about Laser
Opalescence™ is a chemically activated power whitening gel that provides brighter, whiter teeth after just 40 minutes in the dental chair. The safe, powerful 40% hydrogen peroxide gel is chemically activated, doesn’t require a hot, uncomfortable light to work, and usually takes only one dental visit to achieve desired results.Read more about Opalescence™
Take Home Trays
What makes over the counter teeth whitening kits so popular is that they can be done at home. These trays are available for both sensitive and non-sensitive teeth. Each teeth whitening kit consists of impression trays and teeth whitening gels. These "take-home trays" are engineered for anyone to use, and come with instructions on how to perform the procedure yourself. Although they can be a convenient option, obtaining great results can take longer than other treatments and they don’t always work well for deep stains. These trays are custom made to go over your teeth and whiten your teeth through a special gel that is found on the inside of the trays.
These trays, once made for you, can then be taken home as a teeth whitening kit, along with the guidelines given by our dentist. The time period that they must remain on your teeth can vary according to your teeth whitening needs.
How they Work
Custom whitening trays are made of a clear plastic that comfortably adjust when inserted. A small dollop of a gel is inserted in each tray, giving them their whitening properties. The gel consists of a hydrogen peroxide solution that actively whitens the enamel of the teeth.
After they have been used and are taken off, they need to be cleaned with a Q-tip or a cloth, and rinsed. This makes them ready to be used again. It is not recommended to use them for at least another day, after each application.
These whitening trays can be used several times to achieve the desired results. Our dentist can further advice on how many times they should be used in your case.
The Zoom in-office tooth whitening procedure uses the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp to activate the 25 percent hydrogen peroxide whitening gel and accelerate the bleaching process. The Zoom bleaching process lightens discolored enamel and eliminates stains while leaving the structure of your teeth intact and unchanged.Read more about Zoom!
