Teeth Whitening

Before and After

Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening is one of our most requested cosmetic procedures.  It gives our patients an instant new and youthful Smile.

Teeth stains are inevitable due to our consumption of a variety of foods and drinks (soda, spicy food, coffee, etc.). However, advanced teeth whitening technology has enabled dentists to whiten teeth without adversely affecting the tooth structure.

Almost all whitening methods are similar in concept, but some are much more effective because of the way the whitening material is delivered to the teeth. Another contributing factor is the concentration of the material, which is why less potent over-the-counter whitening systems usually don’t give patients the results they are hoping for.

The two main methods of professional whitening are tray whitening and in-office whitening. With tray whitening, an impression is taken and a custom tray is made for the patient. Then, a supply of whitening gel is given to the patient and he/she wears the tray for thirty to forty-five minutes each day (techniques differ) for a period of time until an acceptable result is achieved. Sensitivity of the teeth is a normal side-effect of this whitening method and is almost always transitional.

On the other hand, in-office whitening is the most efficient means of whitening.  With “Zoom” Teeth Whitening,  you can have your teeth whitened in one session and achieve significant results.  We are always happy to provide you with more detailed information and help you decide which method is more suitable for you and your teeth.

Thera-Snore

Snoring occurs during sleep when the bottom jaw and tongue falls back, causing the soft tissue to block the airway. When the air is forced through the narrowed passageway, the soft tissues vibrate causing the sound we associate with snoring. The Thera-Snore sleeping device prevents the jaw and tongue from falling back eliminating snoring and giving you a better night’s sleep.
