Your smile is one of the very first things that someone notices about you. A whiter, brighter smile is beautiful. It can help you feel better about yourself and make a memorable first impression.
Your teeth can become stained from your daily lifestyle like drinking coffee, tea, red wine, or by smoking. The aging process can also stain and darken your teeth. The good news is that professional teeth whitening by Dr. Collins is a quick and inexpensive way to a get the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.
Teeth Whitening Procedures
We offer two popular teeth bleaching methods.
One of the methods that we offer is Nite White take-home teeth whitening trays. Unless you have been in fairly recently for a routine cleaning and exam, we suggest that you have this done. This will help identify any issues that may need to be taken care of before we begin whitening.
During your diagnostic visit, Dr. Collins will take impressions of your teeth. From this impression a custom gel holding appliance called a whitening tray is made to fit snugly in place over your teeth. Next, you will be fitted with your whitening tray.
Your desired level of whiteness is completely up to you. Simply follow the take-home directions and continue to maintain proper oral hygiene through brushing and flossing. Nite White is powerful and works quickly. Most patients actually see results as soon as the first day of use.
Shown to the right are some before and after images from this effective method.
The other whitening treatment that we offer is performed in the office and it is called Zoom whitening. Zoom is one of the most effective tooth whitening systems available and it is safe, fast, and convenient. To learn more, please visit our Zoom whitening page.
How Teeth Whitening Works
Many people tend to be a bit skeptical about bleaching their teeth, because they have tried some type of over-the-counter product that was unsuccessful. Whitening toothpastes and white strips do not remain on the teeth for a long enough period of time to effectively penetrate into the teeth. They may remove some surface stains, but over the long run they will likely leave you unsatisfied.
Here is why professional teeth whitening works:
- The main ingredient in Nite White bleaching gel is peroxide.
- When you wear the take-home trays combined with the bleaching gel, this allows the peroxide to penetrate deep into your teeth.
- The oxygen in the gel removes years of stains.
- As mentioned above, you are in complete control of your level of whiteness. The longer you use this method, the whiter your smile.
