Teeth whitening done in a professional dental setting is a safe, and effective way to brighten your smile. It’s also perhaps the most economical cosmetic dental procedure. Depending on the whitening method you choose, results can be dramatic: in-office teeth whitening, for example, can lighten teeth three to eight shades in a single hour.
Dr. Becker offers Sinsational Smile® and Zoom® WhiteSpeed teeth whitening for results far superior to over the counter options. These products enable patients to quickly and comfortably make over their smile, removing years of lifestyle habits and natural darkening of teeth that occurs with age. You can choose an in office or take home treatment option to meet your needs.
A thorough dental exam is recommended to determine that a teeth whitening treatment will address tooth staining and discoloration. For patients with specific types of stains that do not respond to bleaching products, Dr. Becker offers alternative treatment options including dental veneers, tooth bonding and dental crowns.
Dr. Becker now offers Sinsational Smiles® Teeth Whitening to meet the diverse needs and cosmetic goals of his patients.
Sinsational Smiles is an in office treatment that is completed in about 20 minutes. The comfortable silicone trays used to deliver the professional whitening gels can stay in place without the need for jaw clenching, allowing for a relaxed, easy treatment.
For many patients, one 20 minute session is sufficient. Dr. Becker will recommend the appropriate number of sessions to achieve your cosmetic goals depending on the severity of your tooth discoloration or staining.
Dr. Becker also recommends for best results Sinsational Smiles can be done along with your hygiene appointment, no separate appointment needed.
Sinsational Smiles® treatment also includes a take home gel pen for touch ups and to extend the longevity of your results. As with any teeth whitening treatment, limiting dark beverages and tobacco use can also help to keep your smile looking bright.
What is Zoom 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 penetrate 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 with the results. In most cases, your teeth will continue to whiten in the first few days following the procedure. A minor touch-up every so often, either at home or at the dental office, can keep your smile bright and beautiful for years.
At-Home Tooth Whitening
We offer Zoom DayWhite professional take home teeth whitening for patients who prefer to whiten their teeth more gradually in the comfort of their home.
Over a period of approximately two weeks, patients can brighten their smile and achieve a more youthful appearance. Periodic touch ups and good oral hygiene can help to maintain results.
Dr. Becker will create custom fit bleaching trays to ensure an even application of whitening agents and minimal exposure for sensitive gum tissue.
