Professional Teeth Whitening

Northwest Dental offers ZOOM, an innovative new way to completely get rid of yellow or stained teeth! It is a one-time, approximately two hour office visit in which your dental professional will bleach your teeth to make them up to six tones whiter. Teeth bleaching can be a great choice for most individuals wanting a brighter smile, but it is not for everyone.

When you show up for your tooth-whitening visit, your dentist will fit 2 trays to your mouth that hold the teeth bleaching solution. This solution is entirely safe and non-harmful. Once the trays are fitted correctly, you will lay back and unwind. Your dentist will place a small covering over your lips and gum tissue to ensure that just your teeth are exposed. The trays will then be loaded with the bleaching solution, and followed by a specialized light to treat the solution. This light can be fairly intense, so sunglasses are often worn in order to keep your eyes and also surrounding skin left less agitated. The gel is left on for around fifteen minutes, and this process is duplicated for three sessions. We will be sure to keep you comfortable as you wait! As soon as the three sessions are done, a sensitivity minimizing gel is applied to the teeth. You are now all set to show off your new extraordinary smile!

For patients desiring a more gradual approach, your dentist could recommend an at-home bleaching treatment. They will provide you custom fitted trays, as well as a prescription gel whitener to apply to the teeth daily. These trays are often left on for 30 to 60 minutes a day, and can be done in the convenience of your very own home. Whitening outcomes will not happen as swiftly as a ZOOM in-office appointment, but excellent results can still be accomplished at home in as little as 2 weeks.
