Has your smile become dull, stained, or discolored? We can help! While there are many over-the-counter whitening products available, the fastest and most effective way to enhance the appearance of your teeth is with a professional whitening treatment. Our cosmetic dentist and team provide teeth whitening to remove the stains and discolorations on your tooth enamel and give you back a bright, beautiful smile.

How Teeth Become Discolored

Teeth become discolored over time due to a number of different factors, such as:

  • The natural aging process
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Foods and drinks that stain
  • Smoking and other tobacco usage
  • Illness
  • The use of certain medications
  • Fluorosis

Teeth whitening is among the simplest and most effective cosmetic treatments available. Both in-office and take-home whitening are available for your use, and our cosmetic dentist will discuss both options with you to determine which type of whitening is right for your smile and most convenient for your schedule.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

In-office teeth whitening involves the use of a special whitening gel which is applied to the surfaces of your teeth. This gel is activated by a light and works to break up the stains, discoloration and yellowing on your tooth enamel. By the time you leave our office, your teeth will be noticeably whiter. Most in-office whitening treatments can be completed in under an hour.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Like in-office whitening, take-home teeth whitening involves the use of a powerful whitening gel. However, the whitening process occurs in your own home and on your own schedule. Our cosmetic dentist will provide you with the whitening gel and custom whitening trays. Simply place the gel into the trays and then wear them as directed. Over a period of several weeks your teeth will gradually lighten in color until you have achieved the desired shade of white.

Keeping Your Smile Bright

Unfortunately, teeth whitening is not a permanent solution. You may occasionally want to return to Zama Dental for another whitening treatment to maintain your results. But there are a few things you can do at home to maintain your bright smile. These things include:

  • Brushing and flossing daily
  • Making and keeping regular dental appointments
  • Using a whitening toothpaste or mouthwash
  • Avoiding frequent consumption of foods and drinks that stain
