How do I get my teeth to look whiter?
Drinking coffee, tea, soda, and red wine, as well as taking certain medications, can affect your smile’s whiteness. Whitening is a financially feasible and effective way of combating stains and discoloration on the teeth. At Dr. Zak Dental Care, we offer a variety of whitening services and products, and our dental team is there to help you figure out which options are best suited for your needs.
We offer two main whitening systems for patients’ different lifestyles and budgets.
In-Office Whitening is a chemically-activated whitening treatment that provides impressive results in just one hour. The procedure is dentist-supervised, and is extremely safe, offering a brighter smile after just one appointment.
Take Home Whitening Kit, which has whitening gels in customized bleaching trays. The gel is viscous and sticky and therefore won’t migrate to the gums.
Most formulations – both in-office and take-home – contain Potassium Fluoride, which helps improve oral health by strengthening enamel, decreasing sensitivity, and providing increased cavity protection.
NOTE: Before recommending either treatment your wellness doctor will perform a comprehensive exam and cleaning in order to determine whether you are good candidates for teeth whitening.
