Types of Teeth Whitening
Drs. Nel and Redelinghuys understand that no two patients are alike, which is why they provide two different types of advanced teeth whitening options. The proven and popular Zoom!® and BrightSmile systems treat patients with different levels of tooth sensitivity and treatment expectations. Using the latest in dental treatments and technology, such as virtual digital impressions and digital x-rays, all of our procedures can be completed within an hour and provide successful results for patients with moderate to severe cases of stained teeth.
Known for its gentleness and ease of access, the Britesmile teeth whitening system is available at participating dental practices and self-standing Britesmile locations throughout the country. This popular whitening treatment can significantly improve the appearance of dulled or otherwise discolored teeth in a single office visit.
Although studies have shown that at-home whitening products may elicit similar results to those produced in-office, there is no substitute for the professional touch and careful monitoring that allow for safe and immediately visible results. An at-home regimen takes significantly longer to produce results.
Zoom!® teeth whitening is a popular method as it’s simple, safe and effective! The process takes approximately an hour and begins with protecting your lips and gums, before the special Zoom!® gel is gently brushed onto the surface of each tooth. You can then relax in one of our comfortable chairs while a specialized light is shined on the teeth for 15-minute increments. This process is repeated three to four times and you will leave our office with a brighter, whiter smile.
Benefits of Smile Whitening
Throughout the years, tea, coffee, tobacco and even types of medications add to the inevitable increase in stained teeth, causing people to become self-conscious, smile less and even look older. Drugstore whitening kits can be less effective and actually damage your gums if performed incorrectly. Expert cosmetic teeth whitening dentists, like Drs. Nel and Redelinghuys, should always monitor treatments to ensure they are performed correctly.
In as little as an hour, you’ll leave our office feeling more striking and confident.
