At Poway Dental Arts, we want to help each patient create their best smile. Teeth whitening is a simple cosmetic dentistry procedure that can take years off your smile, and provide a great confidence boost. The other good news is that most dentally healthy patients are good candidates for teeth whitening!
For patients who would like a whiter smile during their dental appointment, Dr. Rich offers Zoom teeth whitening. For our patients who would like to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own home, we recommend Ultradent’s Opalescence® take-home kit.
How Does In-Office Teeth Whitening Work?
The in-office Zoom teeth whitening process is comfortable and simple. If you’re an ideal candidate for Zoom teeth whitening, Dr. Rich will apply the Zoom whitening gel to your teeth, then activate it with a specially-designed light.
Most patients' teeth become at least 6-10 shades whiter during this process! In most cases, teeth can get even whiter 2-3 days following the Zoom teeth whitening procedure.
How Does Take-Home Teeth Whitening Work?
If you’re an ideal candidate for Ultradent’s Opalescence take-home teeth whitening kit, Dr. Rich can create customized trays for you to ensure an even application of whitening gel.
Opalescence whitening gel works through its active ingredient, carbamide peroxide, which contains a 1:3 ratio of hydrogen peroxide. Carbamide peroxide breaks down to hydrogen peroxide, the actual bleaching agent that eliminates stains from your teeth.
Opalescence whitening gel is available in multiple concentrations, ranging from 10%, 15%, 20%, and 35%. All concentrations will achieve the same brilliant results over time, but Dr. Rich will recommend the best fit for you based on your goals and particular oral environment.
Is In-Office Teeth Whitening Right For Me?
One of the best features of ZOOM! Teeth Whitening is that it only takes a little over an hour! Zoom Teeth Whitening can be ideal for any patient who wants a whiter smile in a shorter period of time under the supervision of our dentist.
There’s no need to wear trays or deal with messy gels to gradually whiten your smile. The convenience of Zoom teeth whitening makes it the simple choice for many of our dental patients!
Is Take-Home Teeth Whitening Right For Me?
Teeth whitening is generally safe, and most people tolerate it well. If you have intact teeth, good oral health, and are not pregnant, teeth whitening may be a great option for you.
Take-home whitening is convenient, allowing you to whiten your smile at home at your leisure. With your custom trays, you can maintain your results for years to come. We are happy to order refills of whitening gel for you at any time.
