Teeth Whitening

In the expanding world of cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening always reigns supreme. There are numerous whitening treatments available to satisfy every budget, time frame, and temperament. Numerous surveys have shown that virtually everyone who opts for this cosmetic treatment will see moderate to substantial improvement in the brightness and whiteness of their smile.

However, teeth whitening may not be suitable for everyone. We recommend having a dental screening and a conversation with a dental professional prior to initiating such therapies.

Types of Teeth Whitening Treatments

In-Office Whitening

Zoom! is a professional teeth whitening treatment that gets your teeth an average of eight shades whiter — in just one hour. The treatment is safe, simple, and relaxing! Plus, Zoom! is championed by dentists and patients as a pain-free process.

Unlike other whitening systems, Zoom! Whitening is a simple and short procedure performed by your dentist. Not only is it safe and comfortable, but the results are immediate and long-lasting. One 45 to 60-minute session of Zoom! Whitening is all it takes to brighten your smile up to eight shades.

  1. To prepare for Zoom! Whitening, your dentist will examine your teeth and gums to make sure they are healthy.
  2. Your lips and gums are covered so that only your teeth are exposed.
  3. Your dentist applies the Zoom! Whitening gel and uses the specially designed Zoom! light on your teeth. Together, the light and gel gently break up and remove any stains and discoloration.
  4. This is repeated three to four times in 15-minute increments. Then, you rinse and the treatment is complete — leaving you with a brighter, whiter smile.

Professionally Dispensed Take-Home Whitening Kits

Take-home kits incorporate an easy-to-use, lower-concentration peroxide gel that remains on the teeth for an hour or longer (sometimes overnight).

Over-the-Counter Whitening

Teeth whitening toothpaste, mouthwash, and strips are available at most drug stores.

Teeth Straightening


Invisalign treatment consists of a series of aligners that are switched out about every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. Invisalign is one of the most effortless ways of transforming your smile without having to go through the process of having traditional braces.

Cosmetic Veneers

Dental veneers are custom-designed shells of tooth-like ceramic material that, when applied over the surface of a tooth, can cover worn tooth enamel, uneven tooth alignment or spacing, and chips or cracks. Regardless of what causes unattractive teeth, dental veneers may solve most or even all of your cosmetic dental issues.

Types of veneers

The two most common materials used to manufacture dental veneers are composite resin and porcelain veneers. Both porcelain veneers and composite veneers can be fabricated by a dental technician in a dental laboratory. However, composite veneers can also be directly fabricated inside your mouth which can provide immediate results without any wait.

Dental veneers that are fabricated in a dental laboratory are bonded to the teeth with various types of resin cement. Of the two options, porcelain veneers are longer lasting, but just a bit more expensive.
