Weston Dentist Dr Pyle Discusses What’s New in Teeth Whitening:
There are many options for whitening your teeth; some can give you that dazzling smile quickly while others let you whiten at the pace you prefer.And all make a great holiday gift for someone you love.One of the newest products on the market, the “Trèswhite Supreme” makes for an especially welcome gift. Treat yourself or a loved one to a whiter smile today!
We have boxed sets of the Trèswhite Supreme available for purchase as well as certificates for either the Zoom! In-office teeth whitening procedure, or for our professionally customized take-home teeth whitening kits. Please remember, when planning any cosmetic procedures such as bonding, porcelain veneers, etc, that you need to complete any teeth whitening at least 2 weeks before cosmetic dentistry to allow us to match a correct shade during your treatment.
Lets Look at the Different Teeth Whitening Options:
Zoom! Dental-Office Teeth Whitening:
We use the Zoom! System to give you the fastest, longest-lasting teeth whitening.First we must evaluate if your teeth are able to be whitened with this process safely.Then we protect your lips and gums and apply the concentrated solution that can only be safely utilized by a dentist.We use the Zoom! Light system to accelerate the whitening process in three 15-20 minute sessions.Finally, we also provide you with a customized home-use whitening system to continue and maintain this whitening.
Professional Teeth Whitening Kits For Home Use:
If you have more time to achieve your desired level of whitening (at least 2 weeks), then this option can provide the next best level of teeth whitening.We will again begin by evaluating your teeth, and determine which whitening compound is most suitable for you.The whitening compound that we can provide you is stronger and hence more effective than the Over-the-Counter (OTC or drug-store) whitening products.Previously we had to custom-make trays for you, and while that is still an option, many people prefer the new Opalescence Trèswhite Supreme system.This product features preloaded, disposable whitening trays that fit comfortably over your teeth.The daily wear time is just 30-60 minutes.In our experience, the product is safe, effective and easy to use.Opalescence Treswhite Supreme kits with 20 pre-filled disposable trays is available in a refreshing mint flavor.
Over-the Counter (OTC) Teeth Whitening:
The wide variety of OTC whitening products all require more time to achieve whitening.Additionally, if not used properly, some of these products can harm your tooth enamel and/or irritate your gums.We recommend that you let us suggest which product may be most appropriate for your teeth during your next visit.
