No matter how straight and healthy your teeth are, they will still seem unattractive if they are discolored. A teeth whitening procedure in our office can make a dramatic difference in your smile.
Zoom whitening is one of the most widely known in-office teeth whitening procedures. But as we have mentioned before, “most well-known” does not always equate with “best.”
We encourage you to focus on finding a dentist who you can trust versus being tied to a certain treatment, like Zoom whitening. It is more important to research the credentials and experience of the dentist to find one you are comfortable with.
In-Office BriteSmile Teeth Whitening Procedure
Dr. Currie prefers BriteSmile, another popular in-office teeth whitening brand that is comparable to Zoom. It is known for delivering fast, effective results in a gentle manner.
Before undergoing any kind of teeth whitening procedure, Dr. Currie will check to make sure that you don’t have any immediate concerns that need to be addressed prior to whitening. It’s important to make sure you don’t have any open cavities, leaky fillings, or areas of exposed sensitive dentin or cementum on your teeth.
The BriteSmile whitening system whitens dull and discolored teeth in only one office visit. In fact, you can leave the office with stunning results in about an hour.
BriteSmile uses a combination of hydrogen peroxide gel along with a lamp that is used to accelerate the whitening process. The whitening agents are pH balanced, which makes them safe for tooth enamel. It also contains glycerin, which helps keep your teeth hydrated to combat post-operative sensitivity. The gel is formulated so it responds to the blue wavelength of the activation lamp to whiten your teeth by several shades. The entire oxidation process takes 20 minutes and is usually administered three times for maximum results. Dr. Currie will oversee the entire process, while you sit back and relax by listening to music or watching television.
If you’re looking for quick, convenient and affordable results, schedule a consultation with Dr. Currie to see if BriteSmile is right for you.
