Tooth Whitening – ZOOM or Tray Bleaching
Tooth whitening – Commonly referred to as bleaching – has never been faster or easier than it is today. Dental bleaching can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we offer safe methods for creating a beautiful “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a try. Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “bleaching” procedure. Thanks to a breakthrough technology, we now can offer you 2 proven whitening options:
Custom Whitening trays – Dr. Eddleman will create a custom fit mouthpiece from an impression of the patient’s teeth. The trays will then fit securely around each tooth. The professional strength whitening gel is applied in the trays and the trays are inserted into the mouth for 1-2 hours for 5-7 treatments. The whitening gel is offered in different flavors and strengths. The patient will have a whiter and brighter smile in about 1-2 weeks.
Zoom! Whitening -The Zoom! Advanced Power Whitening system is a great alternative to the tray whitening system. Zoom! Whitening is a bleaching process that lightens discolored teeth. Zoom! is performed in the dental office by Dr. Eddleman and his staff. The procedure only takes about one and a half hours and the patient will leave the clinic with a brighter and whiter smile. The procedure is very simple. First, we will cover the lips and gums – exposing only the teeth. Next, the whitening gel is applied to the teeth. This gel is specially designed to work with the Zoom!AP light. The light and gel work together to break up stains and discolorations. The gel is applied in three, 15 minute sessions. After 1 hour the patient’s smile can be about eight shades whiter, depending on the starting shade.
Whitening Tray vs. Zoom! – Many people want to know the difference between whitening trays and Zoom! The whitening trays are done at home, while Zoom! is done in our office. The results with the Zoom! whitening are immediate, where as trays can take longer to show the same results. Zoom! is applied by a dental professional and whitening trays are applied by the patient. Please talk to Dr. Eddleman to see which is right for you.
