How do I know if I need Teeth Whitening?
As we age our teeth naturally get darker. Brushing and flossing along with regular professional cleanings help to keep our teeth white. However, sometimes we just can’t sacrifice our dark coffee. That’s where teeth whitening comes in. There are different ways to whiten teeth, which is why a consultation is first recommended.
What to Expect from a Teeth Whitening procedure
Dr. Tom offers 2 types of teeth whitening. The first is ZOOM whitening, as seen on ABC’s hit TV show, “Extreme Makeover.” Only one visit and your teeth can be whiter and brighter! If you would like we will also give you take home custom trays at a second visit so you can “touch-up” at home.
The most common teeth whitening option is to use custom trays that allow you to whiten at home. We’ll take impressions and make custom fitted trays to get an exact fit of both top and bottom teeth. Typically this takes only 2 visits: 1 visit for the impressions and 1 visit to make sure the custom whitening trays fit and explain how the gel is applied.
