Has your morning coffee taken its toll on your teeth, and you’re looking for a teeth whitening treatment that actually works? Acton, MA dentist Dr. Ratti Handa offers both in-office and take-home treatments with Zoom! whitening products to completely transform your smile. After just one office visit, you can begin experiencing a brighter, whiter smile!
How Do Teeth Get Discolored?
Teeth become discolored over time, but there are some activities and habits that can accelerate tooth discoloration, such as:
- Regularly consuming highly-pigmented foods and beverages, such as coffee, red wine, or artificially-colored foods
- Smoking or tobacco use
- Blood pressure medications or antihistamines
- Poor dental hygiene or oral health
Brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing at least once a day can help improve your oral health and prevent discoloration from tartar staining the teeth. Good oral hygiene can slow down the tooth discoloration process, but many people still look for tooth whitening to help them restore their smile to its brightest shade.
Acton, MA dentist Dr. Handa offers both in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments. Both treatments can reverse years’ worth of staining and discoloration to help you feel more confident in your smile.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
Our in-office teeth whitening procedure is the fastest method to brighten teeth several shades. In just about an hour, the Zoom! gel will penetrate stains and restore your teeth to your desired shade. Dr. Handa will discuss expected results with you so you know what to expect every step of the way.
To perform the in-office whitening, a protective barrier is applied to the gums to prevent discomfort on soft tissue. Next, the bleaching gel is applied in three treatments, each lasting 15 minutes. The solution is cured with a special light that breaks down stains and discoloration. Not all stains can be removed completely, but this method quickly removes major discoloration culprits.
At-Home Zoom! Teeth Whitening Kit
Zoom has a different meaning nowadays, but our Zoom! Teeth whitening kit will help you achieve a brighter smile with custom trays and a tooth whitening gel at home. This take-home kit provides results far superior to over-the-counter options like whitening strips or toothpaste and offers a significantly whiter smile in less than 2 weeks.
Each kit will come with detailed instructions, but you will fill the trays with gel and place them over your teeth for the directed amount of time. The bleaching gel is still going to remove stains, and it also contains fluoride to reduce sensitivity and strengthen enamel. All of our teeth whitening treatments are designed to minimize tooth sensitivity and treatment discomfort.
