Delaware County Teeth Whitening
Improving the Shine of Your Smile
Perhaps you have a special occasion coming up like a wedding, a big sales presentation, or a job interview. Or maybe you’ve simply become unhappy with that dull smile you see in the mirror every morning. Whatever the reason, teeth whitening is one of the fastest ways to brighten your smile.
Teeth whitening overseen by our qualified dentists is completely safe and effective, and the results are long-lasting. While there are numerous whitening products that can be purchased at your local pharmacy or grocery store, the safest and most effective method is one under a dentist’s supervision. Williamsburg Dental offers both in-office and at-home teeth whitening options and our cosmetic dentists can help you select which option is right for you.
In-Office Teeth Whitening in Delaware County
Williamsburg Dental is proud to offer ZOOM!®, an in-office, 1-hour teeth whitening system. ZOOM! is highly effective and completely safe. In fact, it has been clinically proven to whiten teeth an average of up to 12 shades.
When we use Zoom!, we first determine the shade of your current teeth color using a special guide which shows 20 or more shades. A guard is put in your mouth to protect your lips, cheeks, and tongue, allowing full exposure of your teeth. Next, a clear gel is painted on your teeth. A special light that activates the whitening ingredient in the gel is placed close to your mouth for 15 minutes. During this process, you can relax and watch television or listen to music. It’s that simple!
This simple process is repeated 2 or 3 times until the desired shade is achieved. Once you are satisfied with the color, you will leave our office with a brilliant white smile. Our Smile Gallery is a great place to check out how patients have enhanced their smiles.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening Kits
You may opt for take-home teeth whitening kits instead, because they are excellent alternatives to the 1-hour teeth whitening systems for patients who are looking for a more economical alternative to whitening and have the time and discipline required.
Our cosmetic dentists will make impressions of your teeth to fabricate lightweight mouthguard appliances (sometimes called trays) you can comfortably wear while awake or asleep. You’ll be given the whitening gel that you’ll apply yourself on the trays along with instructions on how and when to wear the trays (usually for about 40 minutes per day for 8 to 10 days).
Results last from one to five years, with touch-ups possible using the same trays. While every case is different, these kits typically provide a two-shade improvement as seen on our dental shade guide. Don’t forget that whitening will not lighten artificial materials such as porcelain, resin, or silicone.
