Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is a common cosmetic procedure that has gained popularity in recent years. There are three bleaching options available to our patients:

  1.  In office bleaching, or ZOOM whitening:  By using Phillips Zoom whitespeed system we can whiten your teeth up to eight shades in a single visit. The average appointment time is about one and half hour. 

   2.  Take home bleaching kit, is the more economical way of bleaching your teeth. You can get the same result with the take home kit but it normally takes up to two weeks of application to get the same result. Our office makes a custom fitting tray to fit your your teeth. You will be given instructions how to apply the gel and you can wear the tray at night or an hour during the day. 

   3.  The most economical method, called Venus Systems, is the preloaded bleaching trays that you wear for thirty minutes a day for period of one week. You will get a few shades whiter but the result is not as dramaric as the first two methods.

   We  also offer touch up on the go by  Phillips Zoom whitening pen which is a pen style whitening applicator to brighten your smile. You can simply apply it on your teeth.  

Generally you might get slight sensitivity to hot and cold. But the sensitivity will disappear after two days.

If you have any questions regarding teeth whitening , please call Dr. Shakoori at 301-474-1110.
