Stained and discolored teeth can greatly impact your appearance as they are noticeable to those around you. At Levinson Sullivan Dentistry, we offer two types of professional teeth whitening treatments: Zoom! (in-office) and teeth bleaching kits (take home). Doctors Levinson and Sullivan will discuss both teeth whitening options with you and help you determine which is the best fit for your needs.
What Is Zoom! Whitening?
During a Zoom! Whitening treatment, a powerful whitening agent will be applied to your teeth and then activated with a LED light. The whitening agent dissolves the stains from both the outer and lower layers of the enamel, leaving the teeth several shades whiter. The treatment takes about 1 hour with results immediately visible when you leave the office.
At-home teeth bleaching involves the use of trays that you'll fill with a whitening agent and wear for a set period of time. The whitening works in much the same way as Zoom! Whitening with the stains being dissolved by agents in the whitening gel. Results develop more gradually, but whitening at home gives you the flexibility to wear the trays while you're doing chores, watching TV and doing other tasks around the house.
